    Great tips! I was told to fill hot water bottles with ice cold water to cool your bed down before you get in. Or put wet dish cloths in a plastic bag in the freezer and put those in your bed to cool it (not sure about that one though…sounds a bit odd!!!)

    My mattress is a gel one that is meant to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter and I think it’s really helped over the past few months
