15th April 2013
The hot, balmy summer nights can leave many tossing and turning and unable to get a good night’s sleep. And it’s no surprise that people are waking up tired and irritable as one in three* Brits don’t ever change their duvet to a lower or higher tog to ensure a better night’s sleep.
To help avoid feeling sleepy and short-tempered, Slumberdown has provided its top tips to ensure the whole family keep their cool under the covers and get the best night’s sleep.
As well as sticking to your usual routine and getting to bed at the same time every night, why not take a quick, cool shower before slipping under the covers.
Many people aren’t aware that duvets have a different tog rating. The tog value measures the insulation properties of a duvet. A 4.5tog is recommended for summer. Slumberdown’s All Seasons Duvet, consists of two duvets – a lightweight 4.5tog, which is perfect for when the temperature rises and a 9.0tog. The two duvets clip together to create a 13.5tog duvet, ideal for cold, winter nights. Available in single, double and king size, so perfect for the whole family.
- Keep your windows open to let in a breeze. If, however it’s too noisy invest in an air conditioning unit or fan. A more economical option would be to fill a hot water bottle with ice cold water.
- Dress for the occasion by wearing light, cotton pyjamas or why not think about donning your birthday suit!
- Keep a glass of cold water by the bed.
- Avoid drinking alcohol and coffee and indulging in salty food, all of which can leave you feeling dehydrated.
Slumberdown provides a wide range of quality bedding to suit a variety of sleep needs, including the All Seasons Duvet which is available in Argos for £24.99 – £34.99.
