When you’re not getting a decent night’s sleep, you routinely feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting enough sleep not only affects your mood, but can also affect your health. Research has shown that most of us could use an added 60-90 minutes of sleep each night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting extra sleep isn’t just about jumping in to bed earlier, it also involves the making the best 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 be reduced by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too hot, your body has a hard time changing from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation
suggests a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for optimal sleep.
A great way to have the perfect sleeping environment is to take advantage of your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will figure out your routine and make thermostat adjustments for you. Another perk of this thermostat is that it will let you and your tech know when your system must have attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you rest easy.
Better Bedtime Habits
We realize how crazy life can be, but if possible, keep a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to get to bed and wake up around the same time every day, even on weekends. This can help reset your body’s internal clock.
Creating your own individual bedtime ritual will help your body get ready for bed. Discover 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.
