The heatwave shows no immediate signs of ending, a cause that is, of course, mainly for joy. After all, for how many years have our summers consistent of isolated hot days interspersed with bland, cloudy or rainy ones? It’s been impossible to rely on the weather and to plan picnics with confidence that they won’t be rained off. So the fact that we finally have hot days stretching into more hot days is thrilling. However, as we examined in a previous entry, it poses problems at night, especially if there aren’t any cooling breezes coming through the window. Erotic gay massage can certainly aid our sleep routine by getting us in touch with full relaxation, a state we can then more easily tune back into later in the day. But if you’ve been suffering from stifling, sweaty, uncomfortable nights of fitful sleep, then we have more tips to help you get better rest. We already looked at some strategies, including putting bedding into the freezer prior to nighttime. But that’s far from the end of the story. So without further ado, let’s look at some other ways you can survive these hot nights without becoming an insomniac.
First, why not try putting iced water into a hot water bottle, and then applying the hot water bottle to the parts of the body where the coolness will travel quickly, such as the wrists, ears, knees, elbows, ankles? If you can face it, you could even try the groin area. All these parts of the body have a temperature-regulating quality to them. The cold will quickly travel, making your whole body feel cooler. The other way of pulling off this tip is to put water into the hot water bottle and then the hot water bottle into the freezer, from where you can retrieve it prior to bedtime.
Second, do you have aloe vera gel? If so, keep it in the fridge. Before bedtime, apply it to your whole body. Not only will you benefit from its after-sun properties, you’ll be beautifully cool when it’s time to turn off the lights and catch some zzzzs.
Next, consider altering your timetable so that you take exercise at the beginning rather than the end of the day. Otherwise, you run the risk of being at your hottest when it’s time to go to sleep. The flushed feeling from exercise can last several hours – moving your gym or running regimen so that it occurs at dawn rather than dusk is the ideal solution.
If it’s really getting to you, why not try putting an ice pack (or one of those ice-panels that you commonly find in picnic cool-bags) at the foot of the bed and resting your feet on it? That’s sure to take the edge off and make sleep a more pleasant prospect.
Consider reducing the number of electrical devices in the room and turning off those which you can. They all send out heat into the room – switching things off at the mains will do the trick. And don’t forget that relaxation practices, including gay massage London, can also play a significant part in helping you feel restful later on in the day.
