As one of the most revered songwriters of all time, it’s somewhat unlikely that Leonard Cohen would have been referring to an intriguing night’s sleep during the summer, on Closing Time.
“… the moon is swimming naked / And the summer night is fragrant / With a mighty expectation of relief.”
Nonetheless, nobody can ignore the importance of attaining high-quality sleep throughout the year, and especially, during the warmer summer months.
Indeed, during the winter, your bedroom is often your only haven – the one place you can be guaranteed comfortability, warmth and rest. But then, once the colder months have passed, your bedroom is suddenly unable to provide you with that same level of assurance. Whereas it was once your refuge at the end of a hard day’s work, the bedroom can quickly become a place of sleepless nights and misery, more similar to a sauna than a safe space.
Obviously, it’s not all about being too hot. For example, over 24°C and below 12°C have been shown to significantly contribute to more fractured, lighter rest, and our optimal temperature for sleep is approx. 16 – 18°C.
Reaching such a temperature in your bedroom or home would be relatively simple with something like a thermostat.
Otherwise, we wanted to tell you about some of those products that can aid in providing you with that cooling relief you’ve been searching for, and can actively help you reduce and/or regulate your body temperature, and feel more comfortable for high-quality slumber even on the hottest nights.
