When you’re not getting a great night’s sleep, you always feel like you’ve woken up on the wrong side of the bed. Not getting quality sleep not only affects your mood, but can also play a role in your health. Research has shown that most of us could use an extra 60-90 minutes of sleep every night. So where does air conditioner service play in to this? Getting more sleep isn’t just about jumping in to bed earlier, it also involves the creating the ideal environment.
Setting the Perfect Temperature
A study was done, and the Wall Street Journal posted an article
about the importance of temperature in sleep quality. Your body’s core temperature has to go down by 2-3 degrees to sleep. If your temperature is too high, your body has trouble regulating from being awake to asleep. The National Sleep Foundation
advises a temperature between 60-67 degrees F/15-19 degrees C for ideal sleep.
A great way to achieve the ideal sleeping environment is to set your smart thermostat. The iComfort® S30 is an intuitive thermostat that will determine 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 requires attention. That kind of peace of mind can also help you de-stress.
Better Bedtime Habits
We know how crazy life can be, but if possible, stick to a bedtime schedule and routine. Try to go 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 regular bedtime ritual will help your body get ready for bed. Do a relaxing activity to help you wind down such as a warm bath, reading a book or listening to relaxing music. After you get in the habit of doing these activities before bed, your body will learn that it’s time to get in bed and go to sleep.
