For many people, summer is their favorite season of the year. Days become more relaxed, filled with sunshine, and packed with your favorite activities with family and friends. These are the days that leave you tired after a full day in the sun enjoying your favorite pastimes, yet these are also the days during which we get the least amount of sleep. Many sleep experts point to a list of summertime factors that have negative effects on our sleep.
Causes of Poor Sleep in Summer
The first of the major hindrances on summertime sleep is a rather obvious one: the heat. Warmer temperatures keep you from sleeping as deeply and cycling through NREM and REM stages of sleep that allow for restorative rest. Our internal and external temperatures play a large role in how deeply we sleep. This extends beyond the temperature you can read on the thermostat and into the very bed you sleep in.
Additional seasonal influences that affect our sleep in the summertime are allergies and later sunsets. Allergies can be restrictive on breathing, keeping pollen-allergic sleepers from falling asleep and staying asleep throughout the night. Also, the release of melatonin in the brain to induce sleep is sensitive to light, meaning that the extended hours of daylight in the summer can make it difficult to fall asleep in the first place.
Further, summer is peak travel season. Of course, traveling across time zones can disrupt our circadian rhythms, or internal clocks, and jet lag can make restorative rest seem impossible at times. Travelers can even experience jet lag for up to a few weeks.
Sleep Cool All Summer with BedJet
Although there seems to be a lengthy list of summertime factors that can keep us from experiencing the most restorative rest, BedJet can help you get better summer sleep.
If you sleep hot in the summer, the BedJet can help. BedJet's quiet, air-driven system pulls the cooler air from the floor of your room - typically it's a few degrees cooler than the temperature reading on your thermostat - and circulates it through your bedding to instantly wick away trapped heat and moisture. The BedJet convective air circulation quickly gets body heat and body moisture out of your bed. This method has turned out to be the most effective of staying cool in bed with bedrooms under 78 degrees and cooler. Not only does it feel wonderful to be cool in bed, but it's energy efficient too! Typical BedJet owners find they can raise their AC thermostat by anywhere from 2-4 degrees and still stay just as comfortable, which saves money on overall home cooling costs.
Summer jet setters should consider being BedJetters as well, considering that BedJet’s customizable heating and cooling settings can help to restore and maintain a natural circadian rhythm, even with jet lag. With pre-programmed Biorhythm schedules, the BedJet can help frequent travelers to maintain a temperature that works to maintain their natural sleep cycle.
With BedJet, summer’s warmer temperatures and travel opportunities can be fully enjoyed without the worry of poor sleep and a lack of energy to enjoy the season.
