Tips for sleeping through Andalucia’s “tropical nights” as El Tiempo forecasts night time temperatures in the region will stay above 20 degrees Celsius this week.

According to El Tiempo a tropical night is defined as a “night when the minimum temperature is equal to or greater than 20 degrees Celsius.”

Among the tips El Tiempo and others offer to get asleep in the heat are:

  • Have a cool or lukewarm shower or bath just before going to bed. This cools the body directly and can help reduce the temperature of your skin.
  • Wet your face and arms with a face-washer or towel, or use a water filled spray bottle, then stand in front of a fan.
  • Soak your feet in cold water for 10 minutes before going to bed, as heat is lost more quickly through your extremities (feet and head). Wetting your hair is another alternative.
  • Apply cool wet cloths, cold water or ice packs (armpits and groin for short periods) to the skin, as these areas are where your blood flows closest to the surface of your skin. This will help cool you down.
  • Apply wristbands soaked in cold water, as this will have the similar effect.
  • Keep your home as cool as possible by drawing the shades, curtains and blinds during the hottest part of the day. Keep the windows closed.
  • Get your air-conditioner serviced early if it is not running effectively.
  • If you mainly use fans, ensure blades are dusted and cleaned as it will allow the fan to work more efficiently.
  • Keep your home as cool as possible by drawing the shades, curtains and blinds during the hottest part of the day. Keep the windows closed.
