According to WebMD “30% of adults have insomnia related problems.” While these problems can contribute to various health issues, the surrounding environment is a significant factor to consider when trying to get a good night sleep. These environmental factors can be anything from light exposure before and during bedtime, noises, and temperature in your room.
Experts agree that the temperature of your sleeping area and how comfortable you feel will affect how well and how long you sleep. This is due to the fact that when you sleep your body has a set temperature it is trying to achieve. When your body is fighting against the environment’s temperature it interrupts your sleep. This means waking up tired.
The problem with your room temperature then becomes a fight with your thermostat. Why? Is the temperature in your home even throughout every room? The likely answer is no. Uneven temperatures between rooms or between floors, while a common occurrence, is a fixable situation. You may have believed for the longest time that this discomfort is just the way it is, however this is not true at all. Wouldn’t it be nice to set your thermostat at a certain temperature knowing when you enter your bedroom it will feel right and not different?
