Bedtime and rest difficulty conceptDid you know that warm weather can affect your sleep? As we all know, the weather has been warmer than usual lately, and the fall weather doesn’t seem to be coming any time soon.

For some of us, this means enjoying the sunshine and warm weather. For others, it means dealing with uncomfortable heat, humidity, and sleep issues. Whether you’re trying to stay cool during a heat wave or just want to get a good night’s sleep, there are things you can do to improve your sleep quality. Keep reading for tips on how to beat the heat and get better sleep.


A recent study published in the Journal of Sleep Research has found that temperatures outside thermal comfort can severely impact sleep by disturbing the body’s ability to thermoregulate. Certain groups, such as older adults, pregnant women, children, women, and people with psychiatric conditions may be especially vulnerable to the disruptive sleep effects of heat waves.

As part of the study, researchers offered several coping methods adapted from elements of cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia. First, they indicated that it’s vital to keep the bedroom below 25 degrees Celsius (77°F ). Previous studies have found that 19 degrees Celsius (66°F ) is the ideal room temperature for optimal sleep. Sleep is known to become more shallow and less recuperating when a room is too warm.

Researchers suggest using a fan instead of air conditioning if possible. They also suggest a lukewarm shower or foot bath before going to bed to help cool down and regulate body temperature during sleep. All physical activity should be planned in the morning, and staying hydrated with water is vital to allow the body to cool down at night. They also suggest staying away from alcohol as it dehydrates and disrupts sleep.

Keeping a regular sleep routine is also important for getting a good night’s sleep. Try going to bed and getting up at the same time each day. You can get a better night’s sleep by following some simple steps, even in a heat wave!
