It hasn’t been that soft and cozy to sleep quicker, ever since I decided to move in with my wife. After being used to sleeping lonely in a double-sized bed, I had to build out how to make room for two.
According to Dr. Christopher Winter, the Medical Director at Charlottesville Neurology and Sleep Medicine, our bedroom temperatures should record between 60 to 67 degrees for best shuteye. If we drift above 75 degrees or below 54 degrees, then we can’t sleep quicker.
Why? It has to do with how our body temperature alteration throughout the day. We may think our internal temps are fairly static, but not so. Over a 24 hour period, the temperature of our bodies naturally peaks and decrease. Our body temperatures are at their highest in the early afternoon and limit their lowest at around 5 a.m. When falling asleep, our bodies naturally cool off. So, getting and compliance our bodies at lower temperatures faster boost deeper sleep.
Besides the bed problem, here is another issue that we had in the beginning when we first started living together. I found out that she likes to keep the air conditioner on and at a low temperature, which I wasn’t cozy with at first.
