The Sleep Coach shares her tips for getting sleep during a heat wave



Cheryl Fingleson, The Sleep Coach, shares her expert tips to help you sleep during a heatwave.

During the day and before bed time:

Keep curtains and block out blinds closed to avoid excessive heat entering your home. 
Do not watch any screens or use your mobile phone before bed time.
Drink enough water in the day to avoid waking frequently due to thirst and dehydration.

When it's time to get some shut eye:

Have a luke warm shower before bed.
Wear cotton PJ's or sleep naked.
Drink Cherry Juice which produces Melatonin, herbal tea or warm milk
Spray your sheets and pillow with Lavender oil to induce sleep and keep mozzies away.
Keep a thermos of cold, ice water next to the bed.

If you do not have air-con:

Freeze your sheets.
Place ice water in a bowl in front of a fan.
Sleep downstairs as upstairs will trap the heat.
Sleep with a cold water bottle filled with ice water.
Keep a spray bottle next to your bed and squirt when you feel too hot.
