Fenton, MO/October 2, 2017 (MartinJetco.com) – Cooler Environment: Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the best ways to boost your overall health and quality of life. If you dream of a good night’s sleep, adjusting your thermostat settings at bedtime may be just what you need to achieve a deep and restful sleep.
It Pays to Be Cool
Sleeping in a cooler environment is scientifically proven to help humans achieve better sleep. When we get ready to sleep, there is a natural decrease in our body temperature. This helps us to feel more relaxed. Keeping your bedroom at a cooler temperature helps to maximize this effect. The National Sleep Foundation suggests that the ideal temperature range for quality sleep is between 60-67 degrees.
There are a couple of ways to make sure your bedroom is at the right temperature when you’re ready to catch some Z’s. You can use a smart or programmable thermostat to automatically adjust the temperature in your home at bedtime. Another option would be to look into a zoning system. Zoning gives you the ability to keep each space or zone in your home at a different temperature. A cooler temperature at night will also help you reduce your energy bills. What could be better than getting a good night’s sleep while you save some cash?
Check Your Humidity Levels
This time of year, humidity in St. Louis can be brutal. But, believe it or not, the humidity level in your home plays an important role in your ability to relax and sleep peacefully. If your bedroom is too humid it can be muggy and the air can feel thick. This may make it challenging to relax and settle into a deep sleep. On the other hand, a low humidity level can lead to issues as well. If there is not enough moisture in the air your sinuses and throat can feel dry and scratchy. As you might imagine a scratchy throat and Drive Sinuses are not ideal for getting quality sleep.
Picking up a digital thermometer is an inexpensive way to measure the humidity in your home. The ideal humidity level for comfortable sleeping conditions is somewhere in the area of 40 to 50%. You may consider getting a humidifier or a dehumidifier to help you keep the humidity level in your room comfortable.
