A study has shown that you can actually get better sleep in a cold bedroom, reports WNEM.
But what’s the sweet spot? Experts say anywhere between 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit. If you’re above 75 degrees or below 54, that can make sleeping more difficult, according to Charlottesville Neurology & Sleep Medicine Medical Director Dr. Christopher Winter.
In an article written by Winter and posted by the Huffington Post, he said that those who have warmer core body temperatures might have difficulty sleeping. That’s where colder temps come in.
“Their inability to dissipate heat and cool themselves is one proposed explanation for their troubles engaging sleep quickly,” Winter said to the Huffington Post. “Because of this, the temperature at which an individual sleeps becomes very important as the ability to shed heat and feel cool can influence how successful an individual will be in terms of falling asleep.”
