I totally get it . Ceiling fans work so much better in this case. We do not have a ceiling fan either. I let my husband sleep on the side of standing fan and I kind of hide behind him and ask him to keep it in such a way that it doesn't hit my face directly . Lol
Yes I do. From lifelong conditioning, I need to have a cover on to be able to sleep and when it's very hot, that means I sweat and toss and turn but if I try to sleep without a cover, I end up wide awake as it feels so wrong!
When I was in Singapore, I didn't like having aircon on in my apartment (I preferred the ceiling fan) as I found it dried my skin out but the one time I switched it on and to the max was when I was trying to sleep.
Oh goodness yes, it is so difficult to sleep on very hot nights. We have an air conditioner in the lounge, so on very hot nights, we camp out in the lounge and it actually becomes a fun night for the kids.
No, I think I must be one of the lucky ones. I sleep like the dead 365 days of the year! Though no matter how hot it is I still like to have a sheet draped across my lower back & hips. I also only sleep in my undies. If I sleep with a nightie or PJ's I end up feeling 'strangled'.
We only have 1 fan, (low on the floor) in the whole house, so I let my other 1/2 use that in his room. We don't have AC either, so I just have cold shower before I go to bed, & I'm alseep in 5 minutes.
