In parts of the U.S., the chill of autumn is starting to take hold. Some areas are starting to see leaves changing, while others are seeing morning temperatures dipping down into the 30s and 40s for the first time of the season. These cooler temperatures may have you reaching to turn up the thermostat, but think twice before you leave it turned up when you go to bed tonight.
Research shows that temperatures above 75 degrees or below 54 degrees can disrupt sleep. For most people, the best setting for your thermostat at night is between 60 and 68 degrees. Anything more than that, and you could be too hot to sleep well. Anything less than that could leave you cold.
