Everyone has their own idea of comfort when it comes to the temperature setting on your thermostat. In fact, within your own home, there may be an ongoing battle of what this temperature should be. Really, this all comes down to personal preference. However, when it comes to the temperature you sleep in, there are quite a few sleep studies that argue there is a right temperature for this activity.

When it comes time to 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.

For babies and toddlers who are trying to sleep, the ideal temperature range is a little higher at 65 to 70. You should also avoid using fans while they sleep and keep them a fair distance from any air vents.
