Sleeping hasn’t been that easy ever since I decided to move in with my wife. After being used to sleeping alone in a double-sized bed, I had to figure out how to make room for two. 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 comfortable with at first. I mean it was summer and I had to put on two covers sometimes, due to the coldness of the room during the night. But now, according to a scientific fact, it turns out that sleeping in a cold room, is better for your health and it helps you sleep earlier.
We as human beings have a constant body temperature of 37 degrees Celsius, beside the high and low peak that our temperature reaches in the afternoon and at 5 am. Scientists have found out that when our body temperature drops, this makes us able to fall asleep earlier and besides that, it has some other health benefits.
Sleeping in a cold room can help with stress since the fall in your body temperature, decreases the stress hormone. Not only that but for those that are on a diet and are looking to lose some weight, sleeping in a cold room is advisable since it burns calories. Well, now my wife has a scientific reason to keep the air conditioner on at 20 degrees Celsius and have a good rest, while I still have to adapt to that.
How do you sleep best?
