We help you through scorching nights. Our advice: shower lukewarm or have some eggs for dinner.
Climate: Normalize body temperature with a lukewarm shower before going to sleep. Too cold causes the vessels to contract, creating a build-up of heat. Room
temperature: Darken the windows during the day to block out heat. The best are metal blinds – they reflect the sun’s rays. Open the windows at night and hang a wet sheet in front of it. Switch off all heat radiating electrical appliances.
Drinks: Taboo are strongly sweetened, alcohol or caffeine-containing, which stimulates metabolism and circulation. Drink at least two to three liters of water a day. But beware: refreshments from the fridge and ice cubes stimulate the heat!
Food:One to two hours before sleeping, eat turkey, eggs or dairy products. The body’s own protein tryptophan has a sleep-inducing effect.
Clothing: The well-being temperature during sleep is between 23 and 29 degrees. Therefore, wear light clothing made from natural fibers or sleep n#ked. Most of the heat is generated at the bearing surface of the body. Invest in a quality mattress that conducts heat and moisture.
Sports: Exercise in the evening promotes good falling asleep. Between action and going to sleep should be at least two hours.
