90 today? How to sleep cool in this Summer heat

Not sure if these work but I will be trying them FOR SURE especially #1 …. (I do have my doubts on #2) XO Jenny

1.  Freeze your pajamas.  Put them in a plastic bag and toss it in the freezer.  You can do the same thing with your pillowcase too.

2.  Use a hot water bottle.  (???)  It seems WRONG, but the idea is to raise your core temperature BEFORE you go to bed.  Fill it with warm water, and put it on your feet.  When you take it off, it’ll trick your body into thinking it’s colder than it is.

3.  Don’t sleep naked.  If you sweat, it’ll just collect on your skin instead of being absorbed by your clothes.  Instead, wear something loose-fitting and light that’s made of natural fibers like cotton.

4.  Don’t share the covers.  If you sleep with a significant other (or in my case kids) use separate blankets.  It helps keep their body heat away, so you’ll both be cooler.

5.  Leave your hair wet.  Take a shower before bed and don’t dry your hair.
