Do you like to sleep in a cold or warm bedroom?

A study published last year found a sound sleep had more to do with the temperature than the amount of light in a room, and that setting the temperature to around 65 degrees seems to be the magic number to a good night's sleep, according to the Wall Street Journal. If you use blankets, then the ideal temperature is 60.8, said the Wall Street Journal.

Studies also show people fall asleep faster when it's cooler in the room and sleep more soundly, according to the Wall Street Journal. Getting the temperature just right can cause problems if your partner prefers a warmer temperature; women tend to like a higher temperature than men, said the Wall Street Journal. That's why mattress companies are touting new styles that let you adjust the temperatures on each side, added the Wall Street Journal.
