What temperature is optimal for good sleep?
Too warm - too cold. Blanket on - blanket off. If you too can't fully relax at night, it may be due to the temperature in your bedroom. Our team could not agree on whether a warm or cold bedroom is better for nightly rest. So we took a look at what scientists recommend.
A comfortable room temperature is important for restful sleep. Although individual preferences for temperature can vary widely, there is evidence that certain temperature ranges are optimal for sleep.
The National Sleep Foundation recommends keeping the temperature in the bedroom at a comfortable level, between 60-67°F (15-19°C), to get a good night's sleep. This temperature range has been shown to be optimal for sleep because it allows the body to cool down naturally, which is necessary for sleep to begin.
It is also important to consider other factors that can affect sleep quality, such as humidity, air quality and bedding. High humidity can cause discomfort and make sleep difficult, while poor air quality can affect respiratory function and sleep quality. Comfortable bedding and pajamas that are appropriate for the temperature can also help improve sleep quality.
In summary, a comfortable room temperature and consideration of factors such as humidity, air quality and bedding are important for a good night's sleep. The National Sleep Foundation recommends keeping the temperature in the bedroom at a comfortable level between 60-67°F (15-19°C) to ensure optimal sleep.
