Temperature regulation is vital for a good night's sleep, no matter if you live in a warm humid climate or a temperate climate. Everything from the weather to your nightwear to your bedding will affect the temperature of your sleep environment. 

While sometimes it is not easy to get the room temperature right, sleep experts agree that one of the ways to sleep better is to keep your room cool. According to experts, an ideal bedroom temperature should be around 18-21°C (65 – 70F).

On a hot day, close up the room early in the day and keep it cool and dark to minimize any night-time discomfort. Keeping the sunlight out by using blinds or blackout curtains can help regulate temperature.

Similarly, ensure your blankets and sheets are suited for the season. Cooling sheets made from breathable materials are essential to creating the ideal sleep environment. The best bed sheets for summer can notably improve the airflow in your bed.

Also, don't overdress your bed. Depending on the weather, consider switching out your duvet - a down-filled duvet may be best during warmer months. Pick breathable and moisture-wicking fabrics, that is, avoid fabrics like polyester or nylon.

Selecting the right fibres will help you stay cool at night, even in a heatwave. Natural fibres are generally more breathable at night. Sheets made from bamboo, linen, and cotton with a percale weave are known for being lightweight and airy.

Cooling sheets are able to offer a better-quality night’s sleep as they regulate the body's core temperature giving you a better night sleep.
