Sleep In Hot Weather

As we fall to sleep, our bodies naturally drop in temperature – unfortunately, during the summer months, heat can have a pretty detrimental affect on our sleep patterns, preventing us from getting the sleep we need.

Take a look at these tips below for sleeping well in hot weather, from prepping your body before heading to bed, through to what to do as you wake up to fight the heat.

Before Bed

Opting for a cool or lukewarm shower before heading to bed can help your body to cool down quick, meaning you’ll feel much more rested and sleepy before getting under the covers.

If you’re really struggling to cool down before bed, then a great tip is to soak your feet in cold water before going to sleep. Dip your toes for around ten minutes and you’ll soon feel cooler. Heat is lost through your extremities, so wetting your hair can also be great for cooling down.

Wear light, loose fitting clothing. If you opt for sleep wear, it’s important during hot weather to choose light, cool fabrics. Avoid any sort of fleece or thick wool as this will be extremely hot to wear in the heat.

Improving Your Sleep Environment

Working on adapting your sleep environment can be one of the most effective ways to stay cool at night.

Simple acts such as changing your bedding to a thinner thickness can be effective. In some cases, sleeping with just a sheet on you can also work well.

Leave your window open. Ensuring air flow throughout the room can stop warm air from gathering and causing you to become uncomfortable. Fans can also be good for circulating air throughout the night – placing a tray of ice cubes in front of the fan can work well to circulate cold air.

Your mattress could also be keeping in extra heat. Many of our mattresses have AirCell Foams, Ice Fiber Covers, and even Phase Changing Materials built into the to keep you cool all night long.

Preparation

As we sleep, our bodies go 7-8 hours without water, meaning we can wake dehydrated each morning, especially after hot and sweaty nights. A great way to avoid this, and to also ensure that you’re not waking throughout the night to use the toilet, is to steadily drink water throughout the day, so that you go to bed hydrated.

Purchasing, or making your own spray mister can be handy to keep near your bed during the night, you’ll be able to use it then for cooling your face down to avoid over heating.

If you’re bedroom has large windows, a great tip for preparing for a hot night would be to keep the curtains closed throughout the day. This keeps the air cool by blocking out the sun. It might plunge your bedroom into darkness, yet this will help you to avoid using your bedroom in the daytime.

 

Swimming & Sleep Health

Swimming and Sleep Health

If you’re struggling to fall asleep each night, then swimming might be the solution you’ve been looking for.

A study by the National Sleep Foundation found that there is a big link between swimming regularly, and an overall increase in sleep quality and improvement in sleep health.

Whilst exercise can improve sleep, working out late in the evening can also be detrimental to quality of rest. Swimming, on the other hand, combines gentle exercise with cardiovascular movement, meaning you’ll leave the pool feeling rejuvenated from the exercise, but also pretty tired from it all!

Benefits of Swimming

There are plenty of benefits to swimming, take a look at our top picks below:

Improved cardiovascular health! Swimming is perfect for improving your cardio ability.

If you’re prone to avoiding heading out on a run or you’ve got an aversion to HIIT workouts, then swimming could be your best option!

Swimming is brilliant for building your heart rate up, whilst also taking a lot of stress and pressure from your body. Many people opt for water therapy after breaking bones, as it helps to relieve weight on your muscles! It provides an all over body workout! If you tend to get confused on what part of your body to work out and when, heading to your local pool a few times a week can be the best solution for this puzzlement. It also tones muscles and builds overall strength, without exerting too much stress on your body.

So, how does swimming affect sleep?

Swimming works to improve sleep health by reducing causes of insomnia, take a look at the benefits below.

Reduces Stress. Swimming can be brilliant for reducing stress, which can manifest in both mental and physical symptoms. Gentle exercise can be wonderful for forgetting your troubles, whilst swimming can help to relieve tension in your muscles, usually fostered there due to worry.

Water Temperature and Sleep. If you’ve ever climbed out of the swimming pool and felt ready to head home straight to bed, you’re not alone. As we fall asleep, our bodies drop in temperature, the faster this happens, the faster we fall into slumber. That’s why taking a warm bath before bed can be so effective.

Swimming works in the same way. The drop in temperature as we climb out the pool, alongside the exertion of a workout, can make up feel super sleepy!

Water Resistance. When we swim, we are constantly pushing against the water to propel ourselves forward. This movement essentially translates into resistance training, which can have a tiring affect on the body.

One hour of swimming involves a lot of resistance training, which can not only improve our strength, but make us ready for bed after we’ve finished!

Head to your local leisure center to give swimming a try, you’ll soon notice an improvement in your rest.

About Us

About Us

Who is MLILY

Our company originated in China. At the time of our conception, sleep was perceived completely differently by the Chinese people. They had become used to sleeping on harder, more cheaply made beds that provided zero support for their body. We entered the market with our Memory Foam product at a time when people did not understand the benefits of a proper mattress or what sleep meant for their performance. We had an uphill battle ahead of us in regards to cultural expectations of the entire industry. Thus, the term ‘Redefining Sleep’ was born, as we set out to change a culture and a perception on sleep. We set out to educate the Chinese people, and to present them with a product that changed their expectations of beds and just how they sleep.

Our Mission is Simple

Our sleep scientists are constantly working around the clock to ensure our mattresses surpasses the highest standards of performance, which is reflected in our partnership with Manchester United.
