Have you ever noticed that it’s so friggin’ hard to fall asleep in a really hot room or a really cold room?
Believe it or not, there’s an optimal temperature that can speed up the time it takes for you to fall asleep.
See, the temperature in your room can have a significant impact on your sleep quality.
If the temperature is too warm or too cold, it can disrupt your body's natural sleep cycle and make it difficult for you to fall or stay asleep.
When the temperature is too warm, your body's internal thermostat struggles to regulate body temperature, which can lead to discomfort, sweating, and an increase in heart rate. This can make it difficult to fall asleep and can cause frequent wake-ups during the night.
When the temperature is too cold, your body struggles to get warm, which can lead to shivering, muscle tension, and an increase in heart rate. This can also make it difficult to fall asleep and cause discomfort during the night.
The ideal temperature for sleep is between 60-67°F (15-19°C) as this promotes a comfortable, cool environment that allows your body to relax and prepare for sleep.
It’s the perfect temperature to get cozy under the blanket, it’s not too cold nor too hot, just the right condition to get comfy and snug.
Also, fluctuations in temperature can cause disruptions in your sleep because your body needs to adjust to the change in temperature.
Keep in mind that temperature preferences can vary from person to person, and what one individual finds comfortable, another might not.
Some people prefer the breeze of a simple electric fan, while others prefer the chills of the arctic—whatever it may be, choose a temperature that works perfectly for you.
