YOU’RE TOO HOT IN BED

Essentials (South Africa) - - HEALTH FAST FIXES -

Are you strug­gling to wake up when the alarm goes off? ‘Our sleep­ing en­vi­ron­ment plays a cru­cial role in a good night’s sleep,’ points out sleep ex­pert Pro­fes­sor Colin Espie. Dark­ness and a steady 18˚C is key. Re­search has found that sleep­ing in wool bed­ding has been proven to pro­vide a 25% bet­ter night’s sleep than other ma­te­ri­als be­cause wool can keep the body cooler than al­ter­na­tive fi­bres dur­ing the night. In­vest in earplugs, black­out blinds and a sleep mask if nec­es­sary.
