Best Temperatures For Sleeping
You want to game all night, we understand. But why stay up and be too sleepy to do it all again the next day? Your setup is aching for you to get back on. But, you can’t do that without an optimal night's rest. Sleep is essential, but did you know that the temperature of your bedroom can affect how well you sleep?
Optimal sleeping temperature range
The core body temperature rises throughout the day, peaking mid-afternoon before slowly falling again as we sleep.
The best sleeping temperature range is between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit (1). As you sleep, your body's core temperature drops by about 1 degree per hour. This means that if you wake up feeling cold in the middle of the night, it could be because your room is too warm for optimal sleep--and vice versa if you feel hot.
A good rule of thumb when setting up your bedroom for optimal sleeping conditions is to aim for a room temperature of around 65 degrees Fahrenheit/18 C.
Lower body temperature is linked to lower mortality rate
The link between body temperature and mortality rate has been studied for decades. Studies have found that lower body temperatures are linked to lower mortality rates, while higher body temperatures are associated with higher mortality rates (2).
This study was based on temperatures within 384 locations in Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, the UK, and the USA. So what does this mean for you? Since we sleep for a good chunk of the day, try to sleep in a temperature-controlled room. Even if it is not AC–fans, fewer covers, and cool compresses can help lower your body temperature.
Do what feels best for you.
First, remember that what feels right for one person might not be right for another–and there's no one-size-fits-all solution here! Everyone's body is different and reacts differently to different temperatures. So if your partner insists that 65 degrees Fahrenheit is just fine while you're shivering in bed at 55 degrees Fahrenheit (or vice versa), then by all means do what works best for each of you individually! But if both parties want similar results from their sleeping environment, here are some tips:
If you're feeling cold during sleep or wake up too often during the night due to chilly temperatures, try putting on an extra blanket or two before going back under the covers; this should help keep heat trapped next time around so long as no drafty areas exist within reachable distance from where one lies down each evening/morning...
