This week in Goldsboro, NC, it’s been a real scorcher. Many people have their AC on full blast during the dog days of summer, but that can really start to add up after a while.
Studies show that we sleep better in cooler temperatures, so how can we stay cool while we sleep without breaking the bank on our energy bills? Here are some tips to help you beat the heat while you sleep:
- Use breathable, lightweight bedding. Sheets and comforters made of cotton are typically the best.
- The same goes for your pajamas– something lightweight, breathable, and loose fitting.
- Use your ceiling fan to help keep you cool while you sleep.
- Purchase a cooling mattress and cooling pillows.
- Program your thermostat to go up a few degrees warmer while you’re at work during the day and then drop a few degrees cooler at night when you sleep.
- Turn off electronics that aren’t in use, like your television.
- If you have furry friends who like to join you in your bed at night, try other sleeping arrangements for them during warmer nights.
- While it seems counterintuitive, taking a warm shower or bath can actually help you cool down. Just be sure to keep your bathroom well ventilated while you do so.
- Keep a glass of ice water on your nightstand to sip while you’re in bed.
Don’t let the dog days of summer keep you from getting a good night’s sleep. Just follow these simple tips and you can beat the heat while you sleep!
