If you are having trouble sleeping at night, this might interest you
Ventilate your bedroom well: doors and windows should be kept closed during the day and open at night. In addition to cooling your home, good ventilation will help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
To cool down, you can have a shower with lukewarm or cool water before going to bed. You can also place wet towels beside your bed or slightly dampen your sheets before going to bed.
Avoid heavy meals, fatty food, overly spicy dishes and alcohol in the evening: choose light meals, such as salads, cold soups or gazpacho. Drink water and hydrate well. After dinner, you should wait at least one or two hours before going to bed.
Beware of electronic devices in the bedroom (computers, tablets, televisions or speakers) because they produce heat, even more so if they are left charging overnight, which can increase the room temperature by up to 2ºC. Try to turn off your mobile phone before sleeping: it is a constant threat to a good night’s sleep.
Avoid physical exercise for three or four hours before going to bed. Physical activity before bedtime excites the body and generates a false sense of sleep, which is actually fatigue. It is a good idea to take a walk after dinner, which will also help your digestion before going to bed.
