It was extremely hot last night (July 23rd, 09)without wind. We turned on the fans. We tried to sleep without turning on the air-conditioner, but in vain. I got up twice to take a shower to cool myself. Later my wife turned it on at about two as she could not suffer from the heat. We had a good sleep after using the air-conditioner. So could you fall asleep when it is extremely hot at night, please?

It is not easy for me to fall asleep when there is no wind. But, it depends on some other factors. If I am very tired, I can sleep without wind even if it is very hot. I prefer to havean air conditioner at home during very hot time. I am also ok with a fan. I used to have AC when I stayed at home with my husband. Now, I am in a hostel and there is only one fan.

Sleeping without air and the weather is hot is just fine for me and i can sleep still but not that easy. If i am not tired i take a bath at night before sleeping. If i am tired i sleep without dress but still have undies. I open the window and turning on the fan here and do not have a blanket. This way help me to sleep in this hot and no air.

Dear friend, For me it is difficult to sleep while hot and no wind. I would either have the Air Cooler or fan while I sleep and when the electricity is gone I find it difficult to sleep if it is hot. Moreover the place I live has some natural wind.

Hello shamrack. It is very difficult to fall asleep without using either the fan or the air-conditioner on very hot summer days. I was waken up one night when there was power cut for a few hours. I woke up immediately when my fan was not turning round to give me wind...Take care, friend.

I basically don't have any problem falling to sleep at night even if it is very hot. Only thing that worries me is cold. I cannot sleep well in cold. I need a good covering of blankets to make my body warm and comfortable. Even if it is very hot I sleep well and get up after a good sleep-cycle with my shirt wet. Not a big thing to bother.

Hello my friend williamjisir JI, Well in my case, it all depends upon my physical tireness. If body needs rest in tireness, I do not think, other aspects like 'no-wind' would ever matter. The more we give luxeries to body, body mis-behaves. I would sleep even in all odd conditions, provided I am tired to that extent. May God bless You and have a great time.

Hello friend. You are right that the more we give our body luxeries, the more our body mishaves. It is a fact though. Well, right now at the end of August, it is still rather hot in the south of China, where I live. The heat is unbearable. It says that the high temperature will have some change at the end of this month. I hope so. Take care and be blessed, my dear friend.

It is nice weather with nice temperature you are having in the Indian Silicon Valley. I am glad to tell you that I did not use the fan last night because of the rain that made it cool for the first time this summer. I had a good sleep and enjoyed it a lot. I hope that cool days will go on like this with some rain a little now and a little then. Good day, friend.

Hello williamjisir. Good to see you again. I don't blame you for turning on the air conditioner in the heat especially if there is no wind. I can't sleep when it's real hot in the house therefore we keep the a/c on for about 6 months out of the year. Today it was beautiful and we had the windows open for awhile. We've had an usual summer here in the US this year. Not too many real hot days in our part of the country.

Hello dear carolbee. It is nice weather you have without too many real hot days, but we have very hot days in summer till now in the south of China. It will be cool around the middle of September during the evening, but still hot in the day. This is our weather for the summer and early autumn. Take care, friend.

What good weather you have. Yesterday we had a cloudy weather and it rained during the night that it was cool and today (right now it is morning) it is cool as well. I wish to have cool days like this until the middle of September when it keeps cool from then. Enjoy yourself, my carolbee friend.

That would be really hard for sure I would be perspired, an electric fan will do. Taking a shower will help a lot but for intense heat, for sure I won't really fall asleep.

Hello bing. Yeah, when I feel sweaty and when I go to bed, I always take a shower in this hot summer. I find it hard to fall asleep without a shower to cool myself first. I am glad that we are having cool days now because of the rain and change of the wind from the north. Have a great day, friend.

Hi william.. What a coincidence!I just got up a while ago and turned on the air-conditioner and I found your discussion. To answer your question, I can go to sleep but it won't be a good one. For sure, I'll wake up in the middle of the night, drenched in sweat. When it's really a hot, humid night, my husband and I just use the air-conditioner. There's no reason to lose a goodnight sleep when there's an available material such as the air-conditioner.

Hello jcj. Right to say that we must make good use of the material or stuff that we have when it is time for them to service us. Have a good day, friend.

Hello vicky. Fresh and natural wind is so important to us as it makes us feel so good in the hot summer. I love it when I feel it. Have a good day, my dear friend.

Hello dear cindy. I don't like hot summer days, either. These days it is extremely hot and I find it hard to stand it. Now we use more often the airconditioner and the fans while sleeping in the bedroom. Enjoy yourself, cindy.

Well, at times when we have long power cuts , we do get asleep when we are very tired . We fall asleep even when we are being bitten by many mosquitoes and it is hot and uncomfortable - coz "sleep" is afterall "sleep" .

hi william! how are you?^^ i can't sleep too with too much heat. i have experienced that before. there was no wind and even if there was the electric fan, the air coming from it was hot too making me uncomfortable. i would fall asleep for a few minutes then wake up again irritated because of too much heat and sweat. only when the air gets cooler, like during past midnight, i would fall asleep and sleep soundly.

If it's too hot, it's also very difficult to breathe. Not to mention that your blood pressure will shoot sky high!

It is true that hot weather makes it more difficult to breathe. I always enjoy cool air. Good day, puddytat.

Now I can sleep even when it is hot with the help of my electric fan. A few months back, I still do not have an electric fan and there are two consecutive nights when I was awaken because of the hot weather. On the second night of it I cannot sleep anymore because of the heat so I just browsed the Net until the sum came out :( I bought an electric fan after that situation...

Hello wrangel. An electric fan is always needed as well as an airconditioner in the house when it is summer as it helps a lot having a good sleep. Stay cool in the hot summer, my dear friend.

i definitely couldnt do that. i can only sleep if i have ablanket on no matter how hot or cold it is so if its already hot id be sweating so bad and way to hot to even think about sleep or i wouldnt be able to have ablanket on so i would never be able to be comfortable enough to sleep.

I see that there are quite a few people who are used to cover himself or herself with a blanket or something else while sleeping. So it is with my son. Take care, friend.

Of course I can, my friends say that i'm pig. I can sleep anywhere. And i don't feel as that hot as other people, maybe becasue i'm cold blood, or i was born in Summer, i don't know. I'm a quick sleeper, i can fall asleep five or 10 minutes after i decide to sleep.

Hello friend. It is so nice to be able to fall asleep so easily and fast even when the weatehr is so hot. I can seldom fall asleep with five or ten minutes. It takes me a longer time to fall asleep. Enjoy your life, lynettebyc.

I never have a problem sleeping when it's hot, but no wind well that's something else. I used to go to by the lake to sleep in summer, not to swim or fish and I always enjoyed it no matter how hot it is. but there was always wind so I don't feel like grilled. even in my homeland there is always wind there even if it can get up to 40 degrees celcius.

Hello LittleMel. What a nice place you live! I think that it is a wonderful enjoyment to have a house close to the lake or sea as it is so relaxing and enjoyable to live there. I love to enjoy the breeze from the sea or lake or river. Take care, friend.

It helps with fans in the house during the sleeping hours. Usually when it is too hot during sleeping hours when there is no wind, I find it hard to fall asleep unless the air-conditioner is on. Thank you for the response, friend.

Hello marciascott. Usually it is hotter in August, but July 23rd, it was extremely hot at night. Later I got to know that many people felt the same that night. Stay cool, friend.

Hello friend, It will depend on how tired I am. When I am not so tired and not feeling sleepy, even if I lie down on the most comfortable bed with a.c. on, I would not fall asleep. And, if I am really tired, i would fall asleep without fan as well, though I would sweat out a lot.I might just get up, have some water and then keep my towel with me. It would be discomfortable but yes, I can do that.

Hello jshkhar. When I feel hot and sweaty, it is very difficult for me to fall asleep and I would get up for a shower to cool me off and go to sleep again. It is a good idea to get a wet towel with you for a good sleep. Take care, friend.

I think it's incredibly difficult to fall asleep when it's too hot or too cold. I have trouble falling asleep most nights even when it's a comfortable temperature, but it's even harder still when the temperature is extreme.

Hello Bethany. This summer we have incredibly hot weather in the south of China that we have to use the air-conditioner and the fans when we sleep and when we stay home watching TV and so on. But it is good that it started to rain yesterday and it is now much cooler without the heat in the past two days. I love it when it is cool. Take care, friend.
