Keep an Eye on Temperature

If you’re a warmth-loving lizard like myself, then you might be in the habit of keeping your bedroom windows shut for the best part of the day, and purposefully avoiding lowering your room temperature when it’s finally sleep o’clock.



However, rooms that are too hot are one of the main culprits of poor sleeping habits, leading you to either stay awake for too long, or make you feel drowsy and sluggish in the morning. Think somewhere along the lines of 60 to 67 degrees Fahrenheit, and your room will be perfectly crisp and fresh to tell your body it’s time for some shut-eye.
