Over the years, studies have shown that temperature can affect quality of sleep.
An article on NYTimes.com stated the optimal temperatures for sleep fall right around 60 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit. Temperatures that fall above or below that have been found to lead to restlessness.
In fact, several studies have found that temperature regulation, in part, plays a role in chronic insomnia. For example, researchers have found that insomniacs tend to have a warmer core body temperature than regular sleepers, just before bedtime.
To help regulate your body temperature at night, consider using thermo-regulating sleep products. For example, Protect-A-Bed’s Luxury Sleep Line features an all-natural Tencel® based fiber. The fiber is naturally thermo-regulating, keeping you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. It also wicks moisture way from the sleep surface, while its hypoallergenic and antibacterial properties provide a clean hygienic sleep zone (ideal for those with sensitive skin).
Between Feb. 19 and March 1, Protect-A-Bed is hosting its "Sleep Your Way to Spring Sweepstakes" on its website. Entrants will have a chance to win items from the Luxury Sleep Line. To enter, visit Protect-A-Bed.com.
