Sleep at the Perfect Temperature
Suggestions to help you and your partner sleep more comfortably.

Research shows that the ideal bedroom temperature for sleep is 65 - 68 degrees.

At this temperature you’ll be comfortable under the covers. That’s because your body won’t have to do anything to create heat (shiver) or shed heat (sweat).


A shower before bed can help you sleep better.

Showering warms your skin, which actually lowers your internal body temperature. A cooler internal temp helps bring on sleepiness.

Skip exercise and large meals before bed.

Exercising before bed can raise your internal temperature, making it harder to fall asleep. A big meal can also elevate your body temperature and interfere with sleep.
