Finding Sleep Tip: 7 of 10

Reduce the Temperature

Resist the temptation to slip into a pair of flannel pajamas and climb under a mountain of blankets: Added warmth could cause you to wake up more often and spend less time in the deeper stages of sleep, according to the journal Sleep. “Your core temperature drops at night, which is a signal that our bodies are preparing for sleep,” Gregory explains. Making changes that promote a cooler sleep environment, such as lowering the thermostat, switching on a fan and trading flannel PJs and wool blankets for lighter options, may allow for more restful slumber. In the Sleep study, researchers found that setting the temperature between 60 and 68 degrees helped participants fall asleep faster, sleep longer and wake up feeling more alert compared with a thermostat setting of 75 degrees.
