How Your Sleep Changes During the Summer

Summer is full of exciting things. There are more vacations, graduations, days are longer, and the weather can cause an increase in positive mood. However, summer can cause a disruption in our sleep. Here are some of the reasons why:

Longer Daylight 

Your body produces a natural amount of melatonin. This distribution occurs by the presence of light. When the retina detects sunlight, it determines that it is still day time and you need to stay awake so it does not release melatonin. In the summer, there is more sunlight in a 24-hour period than any other time of the year so the production of melatonin is lower than normal. 

Temperature Changes 

Like light, temperature also plays a crucial role in when your body knows when it’s time to rest and release melatonin. A rise in temperature can make it harder to fall asleep and stay asleep. When the heat is more humid than normal, the thermal load can add extra weight onto your body which causes for more wakeful nights. You are typically more sensitive to temperatures during the first two sleep stages, which causes you to wake up more in these stages when your body temperature is too hot. Waking up during the first two cycles can cause you to have less sleep in your deep sleep cycle known as REM. Cell repair, immune system recovery, and other processes occur during these stages and are key to helping you feel well-rested in the morning. Less time in these stages will leave you feeling tired and less refreshed. 



Jet lag is a common problem with your circadian rhythm. Your circadian rhythm determines when you feel tired and when you feel alert. These rhythms help to control the body’s creation of melatonin. They also are controlled by the environment (sunlight and darkness). When traveling through different time zones quickly, your body needs time to adjust. Common symptoms of jet lag include:

  • Sleeping problems
  • Daytime sleepiness
  • Impaired thinking
  • Problems with physical functioning
  • Emotional difficulties
  • General sickness
  • Stomach problems

Seasonal Allergies

Summer is typically a time when people spend more time outdoors than indoors. Many things in nature are pollinating during this season, but the major trigger is grass pollen. Hot and humid weather can also create the perfect environment for mold to grow which is also a common trigger for allergies. Common allergy symptoms include:

  • Nasal congestion
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy eyes
  • Itchy nose
  • Sinus congestion and pressure
  • Runny nose
  • Watery eyes
  • Itchy throat

There tends to be a correlation between the severity of a person’s allergies and the severity of their rest. If a person has severe allergies, then typically they also tend to have worse sleep. When an individual is having trouble breathing, it tends to affect their ability to stay asleep. This same idea is a possibility if the individual is up all night coughing and sneezing.
