Girl and dog sleeping You toss and turn all night without falling asleep, but you can’t tell what is causing this condition. Well, your room and body temperature may be the culprits. The tossing and turning is often an indicator of being too cold or too hot. Sometimes you will go to bed and wake up three or four hours later and try to fall asleep again to no avail. If you are experiencing such sleep disorders, you need to start paying close attention to your bedroom temperature and your body temperature when you go to bed. The room and body temperature affect your sleep in various ways. Read on to find out.

How Air Temperature Affects Your Sleep

Sleep experts agree that the temperature in your bedroom and how comfortable your body feels in t can affect how well and how long you sleep. But why is it so? When you go to bed, your set point for body temperature tends to go down. This means that the temperature that your brain is trying to achieve is a little bit lower. You can think of this as a smart internal thermostat. If it’s too hot or too cold, your body will be struggling to achieve the set point.

It is this mild drop in your body temperature that will induce sleep. If the room becomes too hot or too cold, you are most likely going to wake up even if you were in a deep sleep. The overall comfort level of your bedroom usually affects the quality of rapid eye movement (REM) which is the stage in your sleep cycle where you dream.

What Is the Best Temperature to Sleep In?

Different sources say that the best sleeping temperature should be between 60 and 67 degrees. However, the term comfortable is relative and what you may deem comfortable may be uncomfortable to another individual. Therefore you should strive to set your thermostat at a comfortable temperature-whatever that means to you.

If you are the type of person who likes to use a lot of blankets and pillows, then you set your thermostat at a relatively lower temperature. However, if you prefer fewer blankets, then you should set your thermostat at a relatively higher room temperature. The bottom line here is that you should always keep a close eye on your thermostat even if it means paying slightly higher energy bills. It is worth it.

A good rule that you should observe when creating a sleeping atmosphere is that always try to create a cool, dark, and quiet environment. Since your body starts cooling itself naturally when you are trying to sleep, it will be much easier to fall asleep if your bedroom is cooler other than when it is warmer.
