Beat Heat to Sleep

On a CBC radio call-in show they were discussing strategies on how best to beat the heat when temperatures and tempers soared.

One caller suggested  putting your pillow into the freezer an hour prior to bedtime.

I adapted his suggestion by placing several ice-packs into my pillowcase.

It’s amazing how quickly that heat-induced, prickly feeling dissipates.

  1. Did you sleep with the ice packs in the pillow case? or remove them when you were actually going to bed?

  2. Brrr! The very thought of having an ice anywhere near my bed gives me the shivers. I need a hot wheat pack at the base of my bed to keep my feet warm, otherwise I don’t sleep. I often waken in the night because my body has gone cold and need to turn on the electric blanket in both winter and summer!
