Does anyone find it hard to sleep in a very cold room...

Even if you got layers of covers? I can't sleep because it's hard to breathe in a cold room. It's like there are icicles in my lungs.

I like a cold room and warm covers.

It's better too cold than too hot.

Another vote for cold with covers over hot. Sorry OP.

Cool with covers. I don't like cold or hot.

Cold room, plenty of covers. If your head is cold, wear a hoodie.

by Anonymousreply 810/09/2013

Cold room with a warm duvet. I can't sleep in a warm room, if I'm cold I can put a blanket on the bed, much harder to cool town a hot room. I'd sleep with the windows open if I wasn't so scared if spiders. Yes, great big Mary!, but the fuckers have got more legs than should be allowed.

the ideal sleeping temp is 66-68 degrees.

What are covers?

Ann's cold shoulder also keeps our bedroom chilled.

In a cold room with warm covers, I sleep better than any other situations.

Second best is the same situation without the warm covers.

by Anonymousreply 1610/10/2013

I'm the opposite, OP. I find it difficult (actually impossible) to sleep in a hot bed or room.

I'm such a Mary about it that I just bought one of those "hospital weight" cotton blankets. It's the thinnest, lightest cover I could find.

I like a cold room. I sleep with the window open in the winter. I woke up once to snow melting on my face.

by Anonymousreply 2110/11/2013

I don't like a very cold room either. And my ideal sleeping temperature is 70-72, although once I'm awake and outside, mid 50's is very refreshing.

by Anonymousreply 2210/11/2013

I'm the direct opposite, if I'm warm I'll lie awake the whole night.

by Anonymousreply 2310/11/2013

Most people sleep better under blankets in a cool room, like 65 degrees, than warm. It seems to induce a mammalian slumber/hibernate response in the body. But yeah, too cold is too cold, if the air feels downright cold as you breathe it in.

I knew of a very wealthy family from St. Louis who had a fishing and hunting camp in Louisiana bayou territory. Had caretakers living on this place year 'round.

When I say "fishing & hunting camp," it was more like the Kennedy Compound with several family members' homes strewn about the acreage.

One old uncle had him a sleeping porch on his home that he used exclusively as his bedroom, winter and summer. A screened-in room, rustic bentwood furniture, appropriate bed linens for the seasons.

Now granted, this was miles from the Gulf of Mexico, but it can and does get below freezing for at least some nights each year in the Gulf South. And in summer, frequently the nighttime temperature does not get below 80˚ with 80+ RH.

The caretakers told me that the old man was a big, outdoorsman and thought that all that wealth had made his family soft.

I like a cold room, but not sure I could sleep comfortably below 50˚ or so, much less at 80˚.

by Anonymousreply 2510/11/2013

I prefer 65 to 70 but I can only afford to keep it down to 74 or 73. I could save some money if I could keep it up to 75.

by Anonymousreply 2610/11/2013

Below 50 and you'd have every damn animal in the house sleeping with you.

Who farted? All of us, human.

When I lived up north I had to sleep at 59 or 60 degrees, I was uncomfortable with that. I don't like a cold nose.

OP, maybe your cat sleeps on your face when it's cold.

by Anonymousreply 2910/11/2013

No, I like my bedroom to be on the chilly side. 50-55 is no problem.

My parents always turned off the heat at bedtime. They also delayed turning on the heat for the season until late in Autumn and switched it off in early Spring.

I find it difficult to sleep when the room is warm.

by Anonymousreply 3010/11/2013

Jesus fuck, R25, what was the point of all that?

by Anonymousreply 3110/11/2013

I turn off my heat at night in the winter. I use an electric blanket and that's it. getting up is hard, but sleeping is Great!

Because you're a fucking moron, R12.

I'm the opposite - I'd rather it be cold than hot. Hot air makes me feel miserable and I can't breathe.

by Anonymousreply 3410/11/2013

I love a cold room, a cold house, and the season of Winter. I'm one of those people, if it goes above 50, start fanning myself and asking if anyone else is hot. At work, where I don't pay for the AC, I keep my office at about 50 degrees all Summer.


In the Winter I love sleeping in about a 45 to 50 degree room with an electric blanket.

How are you this fine evening?

Your comment about my post deserves a response -- it is "FUCK YOU."

Cold with covers = blissful sleep

by Anonymousreply 3710/11/2013

I love this time of year when it's cool at night but not freezing cold yet. I have 2 windows and I usually leave 1 open just a little and then I snuggle under my covers. That's the best. And I always sleep like a baby. I agree with most here that I cannot sleep in a warm room. I hate the heat actually. I could do without summer altogether.

by Anonymousreply 3810/11/2013

I sleep like a log in a cold room (60 or below). If it's warm (above 74), I toss and turn all night and feel like shit the next day.

by Anonymousreply 3910/12/2013

Count me among the cold room/lots of blankets crowd. I can't sleep if it's hot.

by Anonymousreply 4010/12/2013

When sleeping I turn my heat off completely in wintertime.

My normal waking hour winter temp is between 65˚ - 68˚ so by daybreak, my home's temperature has only fallen at most 10˚ overnight.

It's just me in the house so I don't have to please anyone else, and because it's just ME paying the utility bills, this is a big money saver.

My bed is toasty warm with an electric mattress pad under my flannel sheets and cotton comforter.

Cold room/warm bed sleeping is THE BEST.

by Anonymousreply 4110/12/2013

I love love love a cold room with warm blankets.

by Anonymousreply 4210/12/2013

the best thing is one of those fluffy pillowtop down mattress pads when it is cold. It envelops your body and is sooooo wonderful.

Any credence to the belief by some that electric blankets decreases sperm motility in males -- something about the electromagnetic waves given off by the heating coils being in such close proximity to the testes?

by Anonymousreply 4410/12/2013

Here. It explains why we like to sleep in cool rooms. Not surprisingly insomniacs have higher core body temperatures.

Someone give R44 a junior high school biology book. She doesn't seem to know how testicles function.

It has to be cool (under 70) or I just can't can't sleep

by Anonymousreply 4710/13/2013

I prefer cold but when it gets below 50, I have to wear a wool knit cap.

The coldest room I've ever slept in was in London, staying at a hostel where no one wanted to put money in the electric heater. The windows were leaded glass (not double-glazed, LOL) and one morning I noticed that a tiny pane was missing and snow had blown in overnight onto the window sill, and it never melted. That was cold.

Please share with us, magister.

What did I have wrong?

by Anonymousreply 5010/13/2013

I don't sleep well if it's over 70. I like it about 65. I can't let my feet get cold before bed because they never warm up in bed. Men usually prefer it colder than women so it's often a problem for couples. My father always liked to have the window open even in the winter and we lived in a cold climate.

by Anonymousreply 5110/13/2013

R50 it's the heat that's the problem, not electromagnetic radiation. That's why the testes are outside the body, in an otherwise vulnerable position - to keep the heat down.

No snark intended and not R46.

Why is my butt always cold when I wake up, and more often than not hanging out of the sheets and blankets?

R9, install window screens.

by Anonymousreply 5510/16/2013

Yeah R51. Men like it colder. It's hell working with a bunch of sweaterfraus who all want a plug in heater for their feet while "working" in their cubes. During the winter they have another thing to obsess on, besides showers, holiday parties, and Friday' free snacks in the break room. THE THERMOSTAT!

Cold room, window open, flannel sheets and down comforter. However, I cant sleep in a cold room if I am cold and the blanket isnt warm enough.

My animals sleep beside me in the winter.

Two cats, brother and sister. She sleeps at my hip and and is adept sheet surfer when I turn over. Her brother absolutely loves to sleep on my feet.

Kitty quirks!

They like a warm bed too!

During they sumner they sleep all over the house, and sometimes outside.

Here in the Palm Springs area, being able to sleep in a cool room without AC is a blessing. We pay for it in the summer, but revel in it this time of year.

doesn't matter either way if you have insomnia...

by Anonymousreply 6410/18/2013

I do! If I'm too cold I won't sleep a wink. The first time I remember this happening was a weekend sleepover at a friend's house in the country. It was cold and damp and I was knackered after that. Food was spectacular, thankfully.

I also find it hard to sleep on a bed of nails. Whats your point, OP?
