Experts named 10 ways to fall asleep in the heat

Falling asleep in summer can sometimes be a real quest for people living in hot regions. The temperature on the thermometer does not always drop to a comfortable level even in the evening, which means that it can be quite difficult to relax.

As a result, it takes much longer to fall asleep, and sometimes you can even experience insomnia in hot weather. Glossy Vogue has collected the most effective expert tips on how to cool off in the summer (scroll to the bottom of the page to see the photos).

Put ice on your wrists and neck

The body doesn't need to feel completely cool for the temperature to be comfortable. It's enough to put ice cubes on your neck or wrist to trick your brain into falling asleep more easily.

Dip your limbs in cold water

Putting your feet or hands in a container of cold water before going to bed can help regulate the temperature of your entire body, which will help you relax much faster.

Keep the bed in a cold place

A rather atypical way to surround yourself with coolness is to keep your bed in the refrigerator or freezer for a few minutes before going to bed. This way, your body will cool down evenly from the fabric.

Take a cool shower

A fairly common method to get rid of the feeling of heat is to take a shower with cool water. This way, the body will perceive heat more easily.

Fall asleep alone

Cuddling before bed is a romantic and touching way to fall asleep, but it's less effective in summer because of your partner's body heat. It is likely to become an additional irritant that will make the process of falling asleep longer.

Avoid protein foods before bedtime

Eating too much protein food before bed is not recommended because it increases the metabolic rate, which can lead to body heat.

Do not exercise late at night

Exercise raises core body temperature, which significantly spoils sleep in the heat. It is better to postpone evening sports activities until the morning.

Eliminate naps from your daily routine

Although it's common to feel like taking a nap during the heat, experts advise against giving in to your body's weaknesses. According to them, excessive drowsiness in the middle of the day is caused by the fact that the body spends more energy regulating the temperature. In addition, daytime sleep can make it difficult to fall asleep in the evening.

Eliminate naps from your daily routine

Get a new mattress

The fabric that is comfortable to sleep on in winter may not be suitable for summer vacation. Mattresses are made from a variety of materials, including those with excellent cooling properties.

Close the windows

There is a misleading assumption that the air from the outside will make the temperature in the room cooler if you keep the windows open. Thick curtains during the day and evening will protect you from the heat better, because it is the "hot" air that will enter the room, heating the apartment or house from the inside.

You should close windows before going to bed
