Losing Sleep Over Being Hot?

If you're like me you like to be warm when you are hanging out around the house, but when you sleep, that's an entirely different story. To ensure a good night's sleep, try and keep the temperature (in your bedroom at least) around 65-70 degrees Fahrenheit.

Sleeping in lower temperatures should mean a better night's sleep.

Fit's Tip: Try not to load up on the blankets either. Think about all of the times you have woken up and thrown the blankets off of you -- it definitely does not make for a peaceful night's sleep.

Thermostat is at 58 degrees and I am wrapped in a light down comforter for the night.

We keep our house pretty cool and I know we all sleep better because of it.

I can't sleep unless the room is cold and I have to bundle up...that way I can stay bundled up all night...warm and coy inside, cold and frigid does make it harder to wake up though.... I'm all in.

I keep reading that 65-70 degrees provides a better night of sleep, but I can't sleep at all unless it's at least 75. Guess I'm too acclimated to warm weather. :-P

Haha, my husband would love to see me reading this! He calls me the radiator cause I jack up the heat in th BR, and put the blankets right under my chin. I don't lose sleep though, but my husband does.
