When you’re not getting a great night’s sleep, you regularly feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting good sleep not only affects your mood, but can also affect your health. Research has shown that the majority of us could use an added 60-90 minutes of sleep each night. So where does air conditioner service come in to this? Getting additional sleep isn’t just about heading to bed earlier, it also involves the making the ideal environment.
Setting the Perfect Temperature
A study was done, and the Wall Street Journal posted an article
about how temperature plays a role in sleep quality. Your body’s core temperature has to drop by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too hot, your body has trouble adjusting from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation
suggests a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for ideal sleep.
A great way to end up with the best sleeping environment is to take advantage of your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will determine your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another bonus of this thermostat is that it will let you and your tech know when your system needs attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you unwind.
Better Bedtime Habits
We realize how hectic life can be, but if possible, maintain a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to get to bed and wake up about the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help set your body’s internal clock.
Making your own individual bedtime ritual can help your body get ready for bed. Do a relaxing activity to help you unwind such as a warm bath, reading a book or listening to relaxing music. After you get in the habit of doing these rituals before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to shut down and go to sleep.
