Why You Feel Hot When Sleep and How To Sleep Cooler
In fact, thermoregulation is a key component of good sleep at night.
When you try to sleep, your brain will give your entire body an order that it has to lower the temperature by 1-2 degrees Celsius to the sleeping level.
But simply as that decline in needed temperatures induces sleep, if you try to get some sleep in too hot of an environment, you’ll wake up or even unable to fall asleep.
