How to Get a Cooler Night’s Sleep


1.Lower Your Room Temperature

One of the most obvious ways to sleep cooler is to lower your thermostat. But do you know the optimal temperature? Experts say 60-67 F will allow your body to keep a core temperature that’s suitable for sleep. A room that’s too muggy can also affect your rest, so aim for 40% to 60% humidity.


2.Get Some Air Flowing

It can be expensive to run air conditioning, or you may not have it. Another option is to open windows and turn on a fan near one to create a cross flow of air. But if it’s too warm outside, in the mid-90s or higher, you’ll need more than a fan to avoid heat illness.
