According to the National Sleep Foundation, the ideal temperature to get the best sleep is 65 degrees. While this may sound cold to many of you, the organization says a room that is too warm can make it difficult to get quality sleep. Fall and winter months are a good time to test this theory; lower the thermostat to 65 degrees and use blankets and socks to stay warm. When you wake up (rested, hopefully!), you can raise the thermostat back to a warmer temperature. You'll achieve a better sleep and save money on your heating costs at the same time, too.
