According to science, many reasons sleeping in a more relaxed room can benefit your health.


The bedroom should be between 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit for optimal sleep, said Dr. Christopher Winter, Medical Director at Charlottesville Neurology & Sleep Medicine.

He added that the temperatures above 75 degrees and below 54 degrees could disturb sleep.

Winter also said that cooler body temperatures could lead to more deep sleep.

Dr. Cameron Van den Heuvel of the UniSA’s Centre for Sleep Research stated: “About one to one and a half hours before falling sleep, the body starts to lose heat from its central core and that brings on increased feelings of tiredness in normal healthy adults."

"These physiological changes happen well before going to bed and may be occurring before people realize them,” he added.
