As you sleep, Your room’s temperature can be one of the most important factors to guarantee a good night’s sleep. Science shows that when we sleep, our body’s natural temperature lowers itself to help our body rest. Sleeping in a cooler room helps to facilitate your body’s natural reaction to sleep. In general, your room’s temperature should be between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit when it’s times to sleep. You can adjust this a few degrees above or below the ideal range for your own comfort. However, anything more than that can get in the way of your good night’s sleep.

If you ever find yourself waking in the middle of the night in a sweat, or tossing and turning trying to cover yourself fully with blankets due to the cold, you can be sure that your thermostat needs adjusted. Having the temperature at the wrong setting can cause you to lose sleep, which in turn causes you to have an unpleasant day.
