10 Products That Will Finally Give You Some Shut-Eye

Make sure your room is 60-67 degrees when you go to bed

Generally, the suggested bedroom temperature is between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit, according to the National Sleep Foundation.

While we’re lying in bed trying to get to sleep, our body temperature naturally decreases as we transition from wakefulness to sleep. Being in a cool room can help us make this transition more readily, so we fall asleep faster.

If the temperature is too hot or too cold, we’re more likely to feel restless and uncomfortable during sleep. This discomfort can disrupt our ability to get a full, restful night of quality sleep. Interrupted sleep interferes with the body’s natural sleep stages, which are essential for waking up feeling restored and refreshed.

The ideal bedroom temperature will vary slightly from one person to the next. In general, though, a room between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit is optimal for most people.
