Experienced an increase in nightmares recently? It might not be the cheese you had before bed. It could actually be down to the heatwave we are experiencing at the moment.
What a scorcher! The heat wave we’re having in the UK right now is definitely well-deserved! But, while it’s great to spend lots of time outside, it’s super important to make sure you do it safely, especially if you’re working out.
Summer is well and truly here, which means lazy sunny days and warm summer evenings. While this is great for the waking hours, the UK isn’t that well equipped to deal with heat at night time due to our distinct lack of air conditioning. But if you want to make sure that you get a good night’s rest, then one of the most important factors is the temperature of your environment.
With reports of a heatwave hitting the UK in mid-May, it’s time to start thinking about getting your summer duvet out! But, did you know that there are plenty of other ways to sleep cool on those long hot summer nights?
Ever find yourself shuffling around the bed trying to find a cool patch or constantly flipping your pillow in search of the cold side? Well, it turns out there is a scientific reason for this. Research indicates that keeping cool as you snooze not only makes you feel more comfortable but also improves health and well-being.
If you find yourself constantly turning the pillow in a perpetual search for the cool side, you are not alone! While it’s lovely to be toasty warm underneath piles of blankets, it is the cool side of the pillow that really helps you drift off to sleep.
So, what’s that all about?
