First and foremost make sure you drink plenty of water during the day to keep your body hydrated and cool while you are sleeping. 

Make sure you can count on cooling mattresses or toppers for sweat-free nights.

Keep a glass/insulated container of cold water by your bed in case you wake up hot and uncomfortable.

Carefully chose the coolest part of the house to sleep in, if it is not your bedroom,  temporarily move there.

A recent study has found that coffee drinkers live longer even if some of them like to add sugar to their popular morning java brew.

Scientists tracked 171,000 middle-aged participants in the UK between 2009 and 2018 to see how likely they were to die within a nine-year period.

These researchers found that adults who enjoyed a regular brew are up to a third less likely to die young.
