Sleep is an essential part of a healthy lifestyle, yet so many people treat it like a luxury, thinking they're just "not good sleepers" when they wake up tired and miserable.
This doesn't have to be the case! If you've tried the obvious strategies -- like "not drinking a redeye at 8pm" and "staying away from the last round of Fireball shots" -- you might be guilty of the following habits that prevent you from getting that beauty rest you so desperately need.
Keeping the thermostat too high
Dr. Aneesa Das, a sleep medicine expert at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, says that if your room is too warm, it can interfere with a good night of sleep: "We sleep better when our bodies cool down. While you don’t want to wake up shivering, you should keep the temperature as cool as you can for comfort."
