There isn't any other way to sleep.
We have a queen-sized Natura latex bed with wool topper. We used to use a feather bed, but this new Natura bed just doesn't need it. We have the pillows, too, again, latex with wool cover. The wool is cool in the heat, warm in the cool. We use a wool duvet, again from Natura, and again, it keeps things cool in the summer, warm in the winter. It is very thin, not like a feather duvet.
I buy only 100% cotton coverings, so they breathe, and all-white because I like the look of an all-white bed.
Windows must be open all night, and after the lights go out the shades are opened so that we can look out at the stars, city lights and water.
If it is really hot, I can't sleep, otherwise I (usually) have no problem. What used to work when I could not sleep is one ibuprofen pill. Since I so rarely take any kind of drug, the one ibuprofen acts like a sleeping pill, and a really good one at that. However, I have recently found out that ibuprofen has been found to possibly raise blood pressure quite significantly, therefore no more. Besides, I'd rather go without sleep than take a drug (I understand that it is a lot different with real insomnia, then medication is often needed, but fo me it is just an occasional thing).
