Dude…it was 75° in my house on Wednesday morning.
Seventy – f**king – FIVE!
I hate the heat. The humidity. The warmth.
Disgusting. Give me temps in the low 60’s and I’m a very happy fat guy. I tend to keep the thermostat at 64° year round. But I haven’t taken the winter cover off our central AC unit yet, and I knew it would be cooling down this weekend, so rather than turn the AC on, I just spent my nights in the basement, where it’s considerably cooler.
During the day, I can manage, but trying to sleep in that swass is nearly impossible. Even with a bit of help from a few tabs of melatonin & a shot of NyQuil.
Surprisingly, the “temperature of the bedroom” is only fifth on a list of the top ten things that make it hard for us to fall asleep/stay asleep.
I’d definitely have it at number one!
86% of Americans say they have trouble falling asleep or staying asleep at least once a week, and the top ten reasons for that, according to a recent survey:
- Stress about money
- Stress about the pandemic
- Stress about our family and/or relationships
- Stress about work
- The temp in the room
- An uncomfortable bed
- Too much noise
- Too much light in the room
