Are You Too Warm to Sleep Well?

By Tom Herrin

Having issues that interfere with some of the most basic processes each of us has in our daily lives can cause us lots of problems.  When they continue to be a problem, they may wreck our health and disrupt our normal everyday living.  Modern researchers do a pretty good job of studying our problems and some of what may be the likely causes.  As they seek to learn more, they do an increasingly better job of thinking outside the box.  This tears down walls that obstruct their view and perspective.  It also opens the way to more productive insight as to what may be resolutions to problems.  Some have taken closer looks at the effects of things such as temperature on normal functions.

How Do You Sleep?

If you are like many people in this world, sleeping well is something you may have heard of but never actually experienced.  Those who have problems with sleep know all too well what it is like to be constantly tired and unable to function well.  Some researchers have found that there is such a thing as an optimal temperature range for sleeping well.  They believe that 65-72 degrees may be that range.  Some feel that this is due to the fact that temperatures that are too warm may interfere with the body's ability to successfully go through all of the parts of the sleep cycle.  This may mean a poor night's sleep.

Do Your Scales Tell an Ugly Story?

Studies have even found that temperature may play a part in losing weight.  A range has been found that is thought to be best for this challenging process.  It is 64-67 degrees.  Some researchers have gone so far as to state that those who want to risk the cold may do even better.  It is believed that those who shiver may increase the rate at which their body burns calories by as much as five times its normal rate.

Seeing May Be Believing

I am one of those who feels that some studies are just so much print with little practical application.  Since I am one of those who has had some bad experience with sleep problems, I have tried different things to solve the problem.  When I was younger, I always seemed to sleep well in the winter with heavy covers over me.  As a result, I tried turning down my thermostat each night before I went to bed.  I have had a much improved experience with this practice.  I now do it every night, and it works for me.
