So, how can this be avoided? The answer might be easier than you think. The following life hacks will leave you counting sheep without all the sweat.

1. Keep Your Room Cool

Before you hit the hay, make sure you set the thermostat to a cool temperature. You might also want to invest in a fan to keep you extra cool at night.
