The Big A: What the ideal temperature setting is to help you sleep better longer?
The temperature in your bedroom can make or break your sleep pattern.
Overall, the suggested bedroom temperature should be 60 – 67 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal sleep.
When lying in bed trying to sleep, our body temperature decreases to initiate sleep, and the proposed temperatures above can actually help facilitate this.
So, if the bedroom is cool, rather than warm, it will be much easier to shut your eyes for the night. Thermostat settings far lower or higher than what’s recommended could lead to restlessness and can also affect the quality of the stage in which we dream.
It can also help to think of the bedroom as a cave, as it should be quiet, cool, and dark for the best chance at getting enough rest.
If you are a troubled sleeper, in addition to the cooler room temperature, try placing a hot water bottle at your feet or wearing socks. This will help dilate your blood vessels faster and push your internal thermostat to a more ideal setting.
And if you are trying to get your baby or toddler to bed, raising the thermostat a little higher between 65 and 70 degrees will suffice. Just make sure to keep the crib or bed away from windows or fans, and be certain that the temperature stays consistent.
