Autumn has begun!  Facebook topic: have you turned on the ‘heat’ in your home yet?

The IDEAL room temperature = 68 to 72 degrees.  Bedtime room temperature = between 60 to 67 degrees for healthy sleep.

NOTE: Make sure the temperature where you sleep is on the cool side before you close your eyes at night. This will help your chances of getting a healthy and uninterrupted amount of sleep every night.
