I always get hot when I sleep. People have often asked me how I can get to sleep without a heavy blanket or comforter on my bed. But honestly, I always end up kicking off any covers that I go to sleep with, even if it’s just a thin sheet! I read this study that says that the best sleeping is done when you sleep in a bedroom that is around 65 degrees. Cooler room temperatures always help me to sleep better, I know, but apparently this is also science! There are some ways that I like to keep my body temperature cool enough for a great night’s sleep. First of all, I set my digital programmable thermostat down to 65 degrees. When the thermostat programming runs its schedule, it automatically runs the air conditioning until the house is 65 degrees. Of course, in the winter time, it doesn’t let the furnace run to get the house any warmer than that. At first I didn’t have a programmable thermostat and I had to remember to turn the air conditioning down every single night before bed, which became kind of a pain. Now, though, I don’t really have to worry about it and it’s easier for me to stay cool and get a good night’s sleep. Apparently, when your core body temperature decreases, it’s a signal that it’s time for sleeping. Lowering the temperature in your room lowers your core body temperature too, which means it’s time for sleeping! I think this is so interesting since I’ve always loved to sleep when it’s cold outside. Now it all makes sense to me.
