Today is the hottest day of the year so afr with temperatures reaching up to 30 degrees in the South West.
 
But with warm days comes warm night and for many getting to sleep can be difficult so with this in mind we have the top 6 tips on how to get to sleep in this weather.

1. Opt for cotton

Wearing cotton pyjamas makes it easier for the skin to breathe and the air to circulate, compared to other fabrics such as silk or synthetic fibres. 

2. Switch off

Screen time should end ideally at least 25 minutes before sleep, so put the phone away if you've any chance of getting to sleep at a reasonable hour!

3. Stay hydrated

Unsurprisingly, drinking lots of cold water can help to keep your body cool.

4. Don’t overeat

For many of us summertime means barbecues and ice cream, and delicious though they may be, they are not a recipe for a good night’s sleep, so enjoy your food but dont overindulge!

5. Lay off the booze

It can be all too easy when the sun is out to stay out that little bit longer, and indulge in one too many drinks but remember alcohol will make you dyhydrated! 

6. Keep it natural

We'll leave that one to your imagination!

Happy sleeping!
