Sleep is vital to your body’s ability to function properly. This is why so many people are constantly looking for ways to improve their sleep at night. Without proper sleep, you will notice a decline in cognitive function as well as an impact on your mental and physical health. One way that you can increase your body’s ability to rest easy at night is to control the temperature in your home. Hal Mechanical is here to talk about what an impact temperature can play on your body’s ability to sleep at night.
Why Do I Sleep Better when it’s Cold?
While the temperature that you sleep best at may be different for everyone, there are extensive studies that show most people sleep best when the room they are sleeping in is cool. In fact, most people sleep best when the room they are in is between 66-70 degrees Fahrenheit. This general rule of thumb applies to those that are older on down to infants.
What Happens if Your Room is Too Hot
Temperature is one of the factors that plays a big role in your circadian rhythm. This is the cycle your body uses to know when it is time to be awake and alert, and when it is time to sleep. The environment around you, including light and temperature, are important in getting the rest you need. When you are falling asleep, your body works to lower your core temperature. This is done by increasing blood flow to the extremities. If your room is too warm, your body will have a harder time doing his and you will end up tossing and turning throughout the night.
How Can I Make My Room Sleep Friendly?
Since the temperature you are sleeping in is so important to your sleep quality, here are some ideas to help make your room more comfortable.
– AC: Make sure your AC is working properly so that you are able to lower your temperature at night during the summer. This has a large impact on your overall comfort and quality of sleep at night.
– Bedding: Finding the right breathable bedding helps you get as comfortable as possible while you sleep as well. You may want to consider having a set of summer bedding and a set of winter bedding that can be switched out with the seasons.
– Light: Light is the other factor that plays a role in your sleep quality. Make your room as dark as possible to get the best rest you can.
– Screens: Many studies out there show how detrimental screens are to your sleep. When you are ready for bed, avoid looking at screens to sleep better.
