School is out and the British Summer heatwave has been forecasted to make a return next week. Although great for those planning a staycation in the sun, the scorching weather, sticky heat and brighter, longer days can be troublesome for many Brits, particularly shift workers and children who are accustomed to sleeping during the day. So how can you create the perfect sleeping environment be created come day or night?
Why getting a good night’s sleep is important
An increasing amount of studies mean as a nation, we’re becoming more aware of the importance of a good nights sleep. As we recognise the benefits of resting well, we’re understanding the perfect bedtime routine should be combined with exercise, relaxation and healthy eating.
When it’s daylight time, our bodies assume its time to be awake. In the mid-to-late evening, the body realises a hormone called melatonin which helps control your daily wake-sleep cycle, relaxing the body and mind, helping us to drift off. It’s, therefore, no surprise that many of us struggle to sleep when it’s light outside.
By investing and making a few changes in our bedrooms, we can help our bodies overcome this daily release of melatonin and positively impact the way we sleep. By changing the temperature, switching off electronic devices and blocking out sound and light, we can create the perfect sleeping environment.
