Which side of the thermostat are you on, each night, before bed?

If you like a “chilly” bedroom at night you might actually be giving yourself a better chance at a better night’s sleep.

Tell your family to stop cranking up the heat when the sun goes down.  The Atlantic shares a new study.  It reveals that those of us, who sleep in cooler temperatures, sleep longer and wake up more alert.

While experts disagree on the exact ideal temp for sleep, they all agree it’s between the range of 60 and 67 degrees.

Cooler temps allow the body’s core temperature to cool easier, and lower your heart rate.  If you’re keeping your bedroom toastier than 67, you could be fighting your body’s need to cool down.

Some research even suggests insomnia is linked to the malfunction of the body’s heat regulation cycle.
