A comfortable environment is essential for a good night sleep. The ideal situation would be to keep your sleeping residence at a temperature near 65°F (18.3°C), give or take a few degrees.
A person sleeps much faster by lowering body’s core temperature. But there are people who find it easy to sleep at elevated temperatures. Dr. Winter says, “If I were to measure the quality of their sleep in that warmer environment versus a cooler one, I would bet it would be better in the cooler environment.”
We can relate this with our trips to the colder areas whereby as soon as you slip into the bed – Boom, you fall asleep in literally a few minutes.
The bedroom you have uplifts or descends your sleep experience. It is more like a cave which should be quiet, dark, and balanced with optimum temperature.
If your bedroom becomes uncomfortably hot or cold, you are more likely to wake up (something none of as wants as a snoozer).
Other Sleep Tips
Good sleep is vital for your brain and body to function well, so making an effort for a healthy sleep is very important. Here are some tips for creating an ambiance perfect for quality sleep.
Regulate Room Temperature
There are numerous ways to make sure your room stays between 60 and 67°F (15.6 and 19.4°C) at night:
- Open windows or turn on air conditioning or heat if the temperature rises or falls outside of the ideal sleeping range. You may even be able to install a thermostat in your room to regulate the temperature in your sleeping quarters.
- Run an air conditioner or fan during warm months to cool the temperature and circulate the air.
Change in Bedding
- The cozy down comforter you use in winters wouldn’t be appropriate when the summer hits. Keep a lightweight blanket to use on your bed during those steaming months to avoid overheating.
- Likewise, a bitter cold snap may require you to add another blanket on top of your comforter for a few days or weeks for more warmth.
- Use eucalyptus based bedding which is naturally cool. Our pick is eucalyptus sheets from Sweave which are especially ideal for summer nights. Sweave’s bedding is not only cool and moisture-wicking but also eco-friendly and extremely soft. We recommend Sweave because their Eucalyptus cooling sheets are made from Tencel instead of Lyocell. Tencel is branded and that guarantees quality. Sweave also adds in Egyptian Cotton for a smooth matte finish unlike others which are generally really shiny.
