Get a cooler night rest, tonight. NO AC REQUIRED!

By
Industry Observer

The nights are hotter these days and it will get worse during summer. This week we share some tips for a cooler night rest!

 

Tip #1 - Choose cotton

Save the satin, silk, or polyester sheets for cooler nights. Light-colored bed linens made of lightweight cotton are breathable and excellent for promoting ventilation and airflow in the bedroom.

 

Tip #2 – No touching

Sleeping alone is way better than spooning for staying cool. Cuddling with a partner increases body heat, making the bed a sticky, sweaty pit of despair instead of a cool, calm oasis.

 

Tip #3 – Cool off

A cold shower brings down the core body temperature and rinses off sweat so you can hit the hay feeling cool and clean. Keep this coolness for longer by snoozing in spread eagle position (i.e. with arms and legs not touching each other) that reduces body heat and allows air to circulate around the body.

 

Tip #4 – Hang out

Cool down a whole room by hanging a wet sheet in front of an open window. The breeze blowing in will quickly bring down the room’s temperature. Make a DIY air conditioner by positioning a shallow pan or bowl full of ice in front of a fan. The breeze will pick up cold water from the ice’s surface as it melts, creating a cooling mist.

You've provided some good tips on staying cool without the AC.  In the Albuquerque area we don't have much humidity so we don't use our AC that much.  Ceiling fans and misters do a great job of keeping us cool.

Thanks for following and I have returned the follow favor.
