We’re into the third or fourth day of what we all hope isn’t the final heatwave of the year. If all goes well, and we continue to have blazing, sunny days in July and August, then as great as that is for people who can lounge by the pool or walk to the coast, it’s not without problems. One of them is getting to sleep. We’re not really an air-con nation, alas, and so many of us have to contend with sweltering bedrooms, where the air is heavy and sticky. We struggle to get comfortable just when we most need to and slumber doesn’t come easily. Of course, if our day has contained a relaxing complementary therapy, such as gay massage, as well as some exercise, then tiredness may have its way with us and we’ll be among the lucky ones for whom sleep arrives on schedule. But those people are sometimes in the minority and the rest of us can writhe and wrestle in the sheets, longing to disappear into dreamland while our stubborn systems keep us vividly awake. It gets more and more annoying which in turn makes sleep all the harder to reach. Before too long, it’s 3.00am. We get up. Perhaps we read for half an hour or make some hot milk. Finally, we get a few hours, but by no means enough. The following day we struggle with heavy eyelids and constant yawning. We become oversensitive and quick to emotion. And so the wretched cycle begins, and another night comes in which we’ll suffer with wakefulness just when we least need or want it.

What you can do to help you sleep in this heatwave

If you’re one of those people who struggle to nod off on hot nights, take a deep breath and take a step back from your worry. There’s a number of things you can do to repair the situation. Just make a few tweaks to your nighttime routine and you should start getting better results. First, although it might sound strange (and feel even stranger to carry out), try popping a few ice cubes in front of the fan in your bedroom (you do have a fan in your bedroom, we hope). The air flowing from the fan will pick up the icy moisture of the ice cubes and circulate it around the room. It sounds crazy but it makes a difference.

You can also keep your bedroom (or, indeed, any room) cooler by keeping the curtains closed during the day. One of the reasons a room becomes so hot during a heatwave is because the curtains are kept open. Keep curtains (or shutters etc) closed and you’ll prevent the sunlight from pouring in. When it comes time for bed, you’ll be glad you had the forethought to do this.

The perfect trick which is of course gay massage

Here’s another trick for a cooler night. About 15 minutes before bedtime, put your sheets and pillow cases into the freezer. Again, you may feel a bit daft while doing it, but you’ll be pleased you did when you’re lying down in lovely cool bedding.

Gay massage London can certainly play its part in showing you how to tune into a relaxed state, but try adding the measures outlined above, and you’ll stand an even better chance of sleeping on hot, humid nights.
