The combination of heat and longer daylight hours can harm even the best sleepers. With more hours of light per day, melatonin is released later and for less time, which in turn can make sleep more difficult and lead to earlier waking up. Combine this with high temperatures, air-conditioned air and pollutants such as wildfire smoke, and the result is more sleep problems in the summer for many people. Fortunately, products exist to help. Here are some of the best sleep products to promote a more restful summer sleep for everyone in your family.
Dyson Purifier Cool Autoreact™ TP7A Purifying Fan, $549.99
Summer doesn’t just bring heat – in many areas it also brings higher levels of air pollution and wildfires. That’s why it’s ideal to find a bedroom fan that provides both cool and filtered air. The Dyson Purifier Cool Autoreact™ TP7A Purifying Fan works both as a fan and air filter and is perfect for bedroom use as it has an ultra-quiet sleep mode. The air purifier is powerful enough to filter the air in the entire bedroom and removes 99.97% of particles up to 0.3 microns in size. Activated carbon removes VOCs and helps fight harmful gases in forest fire smoke. The filter also has an LCD screen to display the most recent air quality readings for the room. To top it off, the fan is aesthetically pleasing and provides a gentle yet powerful airflow that will help cool your bedroom by projecting up to 77 gallons of air per second and oscillating up to 350 degrees.
Tree Napper Cooling Weighted Blanket from Bearaby, $269
Weighted blankets are a helpful sleep aid for many people, especially those who struggle with anxiety and/or insomnia – both of which can be worse during the hot summer months. While heat is the main reason many people ditch their weighted blankets in the summer, Bearaby has a solution: the Tree Napper Cooling Weighted Blanket. Made from natural eucalyptus fibers and organic cotton, the blanket lives up to its name. It feels soft and cool and has good airflow thanks to the looped knit design. Weighted blankets have been shown to increase the production of melatonin and serotonin while lowering cortisol levels to help the body relax and sleep better. And Bearaby makes its weighted blankets sustainable from biodegradable materials for extra peace of mind.
Chill Pillowcase from Discover NIGHT, $60
For sleepers who suffer from night sweats and heat, keeping a cool head can be a challenge. This Chill pillowcase from Discover NIGHT is here to help. Made from rayon sourced from bamboo and nylon, the fabric is cooler than most fibers used in pillowcases and helps wick away moisture – which is also good for keeping skin clean. As a bonus, the super soft fabric helps to prevent breakage of the headboard and hair (and prevent curls from going wild overnight!). With an average user rating of 4.9 out of 5 stars, this pillowcase passes the test of keeping sleepers cooler at night.

For those looking for a powerful air filter to purify the air in the bedroom at night, this PureZone™ Turbo Smart Air Purifier from Pure Enrichment is sure to impress. Between wildfire smoke, pollution and allergens, summer air often needs a quality air filter that will really clean the bedroom air well.

It also features smart technology that allows air quality monitoring and system control via telephone and voice commands. And an optional UV-C light can be used to eliminate up to 99.9% of airborne viruses and bacteria — which is great when sharing a room with a sick family member.
