A comfortable, warm environment is the key essential to have comfortable sleep. To maintain sustainably deep sleep, keeping the temperature near 65°F is ideal. There's a decrease in your body temperature while sleeping, which makes it cooler but not cold. So, the room temperature lets you settle down to maintain sleep during nighttime. Remember, people spend 1/3rd of their life in sleep!
Switch bedding when season changes
- set the thermometer a bit higher (warmer) during the day and lower (cooler) during the night.
- Circulate the air by turning on the air conditioner or fan during the hot seasons, especially in summer!
- If the temperature falls or rises from the sleeping range, then turn on the air conditioner or open the windows. The alternative solution is to install a thermostat in the room.
Keep your room dark
- Cover your windows with curtains and blinds to block the light coming in between the room. Imagine your room like a cave and trying to sleep there
- Always put away electronic devices from your bed such as smartphones, computers, tv, blinking lights.
Schedule a sleep routine
- Try to go to sleep at the same time of the day to establish your body's regular circadian rhythm.
- Drinking caffeinated beverages, tea, coffee, or soda late in the afternoon can lead to difficulty falling asleep at night. If you really want to drink something, drink decaffeinated beverages in the morning.
