How to sleep during extreme heat

Obviously, sleeping in an air-conditioned room would be the easiest way to cope with the heat. You can adjust the temperature and in addition, the unit also controls the humidity in the room bringing it down to a comfortable level. The downside is, you will have a huge electricity bill if you keep it running for long hours and days.

However, if you do not have an air-conditioner, then you have to rely on an electric fan to cool yourself and the room a bit. It probably will just circulate hot air around the room, but it is better than no breeze at all.

Another cheaper option is to get yourself a desert cooler. It will help in lowering the hot temperature in a room as it works by blowing on ice or cold water which will diffuse cooler air in the atmosphere.

There are also easy tricks that you can do to help get a decent night's rest. For example, make sure your bed linen is made of 100% cotton. Linen, although more expensive, is also a great option to cool yourself whilst in bed. Forget the silk or polyester sheets that are going to make you uncomfortable in the heat and humidity.

Soak your feet in cold water before hitting the sack. You can also keep a bucket close to you so you can dunk your feet whenever you feel hot.

It goes without saying that showering before going to bed is going to make you feel less hot. Do not, however, take a hot shower.

During extreme heat, shower in your nightdress and step out of the shower soaking wet. You can also wrap yourself in a soaked flat sheet to cool you down. Just make sure that there is a towel or plastic under the sheet to protect the mattress.

Keep your room cool and dark by closing all windows during daytime and drawing the curtains. You should also unplug all appliances that are not needed such as radios and switch off lights.

Sleeping alone is better than cuddling up with your partner since bodies produce heat. You will also have more space to stretch and let the air circulate around your body.
