Summer is finally here, and if you are anything like us here at Prestige Beds, you will have been revelling in the sun enjoying a good BBQ or two during recent warm weather. We also know that Summer can be a particularly difficult time to drift off into a soothing slumber, as we are plagued by light nights, bright mornings and hot weather, none of which are conducive to a good night’s kip. Tired of trundling round bed shops in Manchester looking for the right advice? Well we understand the need to get that restful night’s sleep, and have come up with our top 5 tips to help.
It is important to top up your fluids during these hot and muggy months, so ensure you have a cooling glass of water around half an hour before you hit the hay for the ultimate hydration.
Preparation is Key
Trying to sleep in a stifling room is a no go, so make sure you open a window and let a little air circulate around, even leaving it open to the balmy Manchester weather during the day if possible. If this isn’t feasible, then think about setting a fan up for a couple of hours to keep your room nice and cool, to give you the best chance of a restful sleep.
There’s no point trying to drift off if you are too warm, as your body will take time to regulate your temperature, and this time will be spent wide awake. It is not good to spend a lot of time in bed not sleeping, so why not try a refreshing cool shower first to help your body with the cooling process?
Consider your bedding
Whilst we all think about reducing the tog of our duvet (we recommend no more than 4.5), you should also consider the rest of your bedding. To increase breathability in your bedding, we suggest you use a natural material as opposed to synthetics, as these are better at keeping us cool.
Get Allergy Relief with a New Mattress
For those who suffer with allergies in the Summer, we have a range of mattresses which include an anti-allergy layer, as well as those endorsed by Allergy UK for the reduction of dust mites. The full range our bed shop has to offer is listed online.
