I got in bed at 12:30ish and I can't sleep. I'm 18 and 17.10stone I'm overweight, so I'm gettng more hot than anyone else on here.

I'm laying here with a towel using it to wipe my sweat off like every 15mins :(

So any ideas how I can cool down so I can sleep? I can't leave windows open at night and have no fan to put on :(

Get one of those garden water spray cans or any other refillable spray bottle. Spray upwards every 5 mins.

Works best if at least 97% naked.

Go for a run before you go to sleep. Start to lose weight and make yourself tired. You'll sleep like a person with no energy and in need of sleep.

Swap with me. I get terrible insomnia sometimes but the minute I have to write my dissertation I get the complete opposite and all I want to do is sleep. I am currently pumped full of caffeine but about to fall asleep, so I've got my eyes propped open with matchsticks.

Take your pj's off and stick a damp towel over yourself. The evaporation will keep you cool.

My parents house was incredibly hot all year round, I always slept with the window open, even when showing outside, and in summer I just couldn't sleep, I feel your pain,

I moved in with my girlfriend a while back and it is awesome, the other day when it was almost 30'c outside it was still a nice 19'c in the house, I love it

@asim18 I sleep naked anyway but don't fancy wetting myself every 5mins /:

@Azza I went on like a 15mins walk with the dog before I went to bed, I feel tired but to hot and can't fall asleep :(

@Stretch Don't see how that would call all the body down. I feel like falling to sleep in the bath with some cold water in it /:

@Mr Joshua It is /:

@Jonny69 That sucks. I sleep naked anyway but that might be a good idea TBH.

@Hyburnate Never knew that.. It may make you more sleepy but would also make me sweat more :(

SuBsTaNcE Even if I could do that, would hate to leave windows open because all the flys and that would come in. I want a fan but I know I'll buy one then it will be rely cold for ages s would be a waste.

Don't worry about the flies, I never had them in the bedroom, just leave the curtains/blinds closed and the light off and they won't come looking,

And you can get desk fans for £10, and it will be useful all year round, go get one

Think I'll have too.
I can find one at £11.50 so I think I'll order that.

Just hope it don't make loads of noise so I can sleep with it on. :rolleyes:

You can get clip on desk fans for about £7.

takes note for the new use of towel.

Never heard of the cool packs I'll take a look.
I can't see a clip on one for that much. Only thing I can find is a desk one DF98 9" Desk Fan

Don't know how anyone can stay up so late. My brother who don't live with me stays up until about 4ish and still gets up about 8. I ain't normally up this late myself. I've always wanted to get 1 of them ceiling fans there amazing to have.
