How Does My Body Temperature Affect the Quality of My Sleep?

Read Transcript

Our bodies have an internal thermostat that drops to its lowest point just four hours after we fall asleep. This coincides with REM which is our fat burning zone, so the colder the room the colder your body temperature and the deeper sleep that you can get. When we hit our REM sleep, that's considered our a fat burning zone, and we want to stay in that zone so the goal is to keep our body temperature in it so we in it maximize it.

Research has shown that, on average, 63 degrees is the ideal temperature for the room to be set at in order to get your core temperature to that at magic spot.
