Aloe Vera is the perfect plant to cool down your bedroom temperature. By having a high water content in its leaves, it evaporates the moisture in the air through transpiration.

2. Use energy-efficient light bulbs

Simple bulbs heat the room, the same as incandescent bulbs that emit 90-98% of energy as heat. On the other hand, LED bulbs don’t produce heat.

3. Make buckwheat pillows

Buckwheat pillows help in reducing snoring and migraine. Also, being breathable, they allow your body heat to escape easier. DIY: Rind buckwheat. Sift the hulls. Fill your pillowcase with clean buckwheat.

4. Sleeping with a wet blanket

Hot nights can be easily managed by sleeping with a wet blanket. Just a little water will do the job.

5. Put your bed sheets in the freezer

Put your bed sheets in a plastic bag, then place them in the freeze for at least 10 minutes. Cold sheets will be a relief from the heat!

6. Make your own AC

You can DIY an AC! You only need a fan and a bottle of frozen water. Put it in front of the fan, and enjoy the cold blows!

7. Hang a wet sheet over the window

Hang a wet sheet over open windows to enjoy a cool breeze. You can even spray the curtains with cold water. Also, a wet towel on your fan will do a good job.

8. Breathe through your tongue

Stick your tongue out, then fold it at the sides. Try to breathe through it. It might look crazy, but it helps to cool down your body temperature.

9. Sleep with a basin of cold water nearby

A basin of cold water near your bed might be a good solution. Dip your hands in it when feeling hot. It will bring down the body temperature. You can even use a frozen washcloth.

10. Sleep on the floor
