Chill

It may be obvious, but you can achieve this by taking a cool or lukewarm shower just before bed.

A fan can help reduce your body temperature surprisingly quickly.

Chill your sheets and pillow in the fridge before bed.

Clothes

Don’t sleep naked – it’s actually better to wear pyjamas made of natural fibres. The pyjama fabric draws sweat away from your body, and will make you feel a lot cooler and more comfortable.

Remove the over-sheet, duvet or blanket.

Move

If possible sleep downstairs, heat rises so you find that the top bedrooms in the house are at the highest temperatures.

Sleep separate from your partner, sharing body heat will just make you hotter.

Alcohol

Avoid alcohol – It is well known that alcohol disrupts sleep — and those negative effects are made worse when it is hot.
