During summer we’re able to enjoy high temperatures –

particularly if we’re heading abroad in search of sunshine.

While the season may now be drawing to a close, that doesn’t

mean the occasional sticky, sleepless night isn’t still a problem.

Fortunately, it’s a problem that can be avoided with a few

simple measures. Let’s review some of them.

In order to allow cold air to circulate through your home, an

open window might be just what’s called for. Modern double-

glazing has remarkable heat-repelling properties – but at night

time, when the sun’s absent, it can also keep heat inside your

room. Open it up, and you might be surprised by how much

cooler your room becomes. Ideally, you’ll want to open your

window a few hours before you go to bed, in order to allow

your room to get down to the right temperature.

Many might object to leaving their window open all night –

especially those in built-up urban areas with high levels of

crime. That being the case, you’ll need to turn to other

A blast of moving air is an excellent way of keeping cool –

especially during humid periods. This is so not only because it

directly cools your skin, but because it dries it. If your skin is

saturated with sweat, and that sweat isn’t evaporating quickly

enough, then you’ll be unable to rid your body of excess heat.

By drying out the sweat on your skin, you’ll be able to sweat

more – and thereby get cool down. For this reason, fans are

most effective when deployed against bare skin.

If you’ve ever eaten a particularly spicy curry, you might have

noticed that you begin to sweat. Why should this be? After all,

you’re not increasing your temperature any more than you might

be after a bland food of the same temperature.

The answer lies in the fact that pain receptors in your skin

respond to chemicals like capsaicin (found in chillies) in the

same way that they respond to heat – which means that you’ll

sweat. You’ll also perceive the food as hot, even if it’s the same

temperature as a blander alternative. In order to keep as cool

as possible, stick to relatively bland and cold foods – a fruit

salad or a bowl of gazpacho might do just the trick!

In order to allow your skin to disperse heat, and cold air to

penetrate your clothes (or bedsheets), then breathable fabrics

like cotton are a must. They’ll allow you to keep things cool

without stripping down to nothing.

When you’re settling off to sleep, the first hour or so is crucial –

as once you’re asleep, you’ll be less aware of slight changes in

temperature. For this reason, you might consider keeping your

pyjamas or bedsheets in the fridge – or freezer – for a few

minutes before bedtime. This trick might seem a little bit

extreme, but it can be a lifesaver on those especially humid
