July brings the dog days of summer and in Iowa, that means the temperature can be extremely uncomfortable. CarePro Health Services cares about your sleep comfort and wellness, so today we are bringing you four tips for sleeping better in the summer.
- Use a ceiling fan or box fan to circulate the air in your bedroom. Not only will a fan give you the sense of a cooler room, but also you will experience better airflow into your room. A ceiling fan is designed to circulate air no matter what the season, so keeping your fan on during the day can make for a better night’s sleep.
- Use room darkening curtains to regulate the light. Depending on what time you go to bed during the summer, it could still be light out. Room darkening curtains can keep the light out and the cold air in. If you’re not home during the day, keep your curtains closed in the bedroom so the sun does not heat up the room. Keeping the curtains closed can add to your sleep comfort level this summer, even on the hottest days. This concept can also be used throughout the house to save on energy this summer.
- Be consistent with your sleep schedule. Consistency is especially important if you have sleep apnea and use CPAP therapy. If you are new to CPAP therapy treatment for your sleep apnea, some of our CarePro Home Medical locations offer assistance on CPAP therapy equipment and treatment. Our clinics are designed to answer all of your questions about sleep apnea and CPAP use. You will thank yourself later for keeping a consistent sleep schedule because you will experience better sleep every night of the week.
- Use sleep aid options from CarePro Pharmacies. We offer many options when it comes to natural and holistic approaches to sleep aids. Viniferamine Sleep Support is a capsule version of a natural sleep aid so you can have longer and deeper sleep each night. If you’re not a fan of capsules, we also have Aquegel, a topical, nasal moisturizer to keep your nasal passages comfortable throughout the night.
