Sleep is a critical aspect of our lives. It's an essential component that keeps our bodies healthy and functioning correctly. However, many factors can influence our ability to get a good night's sleep. One such factor is the core body temperature. Changes in our body temperature can impact the quality of our sleep, making it essential to manage it correctly. In this article, Dr Shankar. S. Biradar, MBBS, Medical Director, in association with Magniflex India,will explore the impact of core body temperature on sleep and how to manage it.
Our body temperature declines in the evening, helping us feel sleepy at night. However, if our body temperature is too high or too low, it can disrupt our sleep. An elevated core body temperature can make falling asleep and staying asleep challenging. It can also lead to frequent waking during the night.
The body's internal thermostat, the hypothalamus, regulates our body temperature. When body temperature is too high, the hypothalamus signals the body to cool down by sweating. However, this process can take time, making it difficult to fall asleep.
A low core body temperature can also disrupt our sleep. When our body temperature drops, it can cause us to wake up during the night. This is because a drop in body temperature signals the body to wake up and warm up. However, it can also cause us to feel sluggish and tired in the morning, making it difficult to start our day.
Managing our core body temperature is essential for a good night's sleep. One way to regulate our body temperature is to adjust the temperature in our sleeping environment. For example, keeping the room cool and using a fan or air conditioning can help lower our body temperature, making it easier to fall asleep.
