This week on Sleep Sunday we are going to talk about sleep and the sort of temperature that is best to sleep in. At this time of year we all tend to have our heating on but the room temperature can really cause havoc on your sleep.
One of my favourite sites Healthline points out that you should keep the temperature near 65°F (18.3°C), give or take a few degrees, is ideal. They go onto explain that your body’s temperature decreases during sleep and a cool, but not cold, room will help you settle into and maintain sleep throughout the night.
Of course, children and babies may need a slightly higher room temperature for sleep, but you’ll want to avoid turning up the thermometer more than a few extra degrees so their little bodies won’t get overheated.
