5 Ways To Stay Cool on a Hot Summer Night


There's nothing worse than tossing and turning on a hot summer night. Excessive sweating and body heat can cause you to wake up in the middle of the night and have trouble getting back to sleep, compromising your ability to focus in the morning and throughout the day. Here are some great tips for cooling down your bedroom without air conditioning or fans.

  • Try out cooling pajamas - Cool-jams™ offers a line of high-quality sleepwear designed specifically to keep you cool at night. Made with a proprietary fabric that wicks away moisture, these pajamas are designed for superior sweat management so you don't wake up drenched. To boot, they offer a "cotton-like" comfort and feel that's quick drying and odor-controlling.
  • Invest in bedding that stabilizes body temperature - Similarly, we offer a fantastic variety of cooling bedding engineered to regulate your body temperature so you get a restful night's sleep. Even the hottest summer temperatures are no match for a set of quality cooling sheets, pillowcases, blankets and comforters. These products are made with high-tech textiles that absorb heat to encourage a cool, comfortable sleeping environment.
  • Open up the windows and doors - If possible, open up your bedroom windows and let the breeze flow in. This will not only assist in helping regulate your bedroom's temperature, but will also eliminate some of the trapped-in humidity that may accumulate in your bedroom and compromise your ability to breathe normally. On the same note, it's important to keep your bedroom door open to let the hot air flow out.
  • Invest in a rotating fan - These fans are a godsend if you are trying to stay cool without air-conditioning. Position the fan so that it covers your entire bed. Your bedroom air will be fresh and circulated adding to your sleep time comfort.
  • Decorate with lightweight materials - If you live someplace where heat is a year-round concern, you may consider choosing your bedroom décor with this in mind. Some materials, such as shaggy rugs and bulky furniture, can encourage heat to linger in a room. Choose fabrics such as cotton and bamboo to cool things down.
