    I sleep with my windows open (at least

    partially open) in the winter. What does that say?

    I find hotels are generally very bad

    for stuffiness. There is a delicate balance to be found between traffic noise and temperature in the big cities.

    How Uncomfortable...

    I don't know if this only happens to me, but often times if I go to sleep and my room is really hot and sticky, I will not only be up for most of the night just tossing and turning, but I tend to get semi delirious during the night. It's like the effect of inhaling too much...

    Fan Please

    I sleep with a fan on in my bedroom 365 days a year. Something about the noise is soothing, but I love the feeling of air moving around me. Now some nights that means that I add extra blankets and pull them up tight. Hahaha

    Nope. I cannot sleep with a hot

    and stuffy room. I have to have it chilly in my room. But I want as many blankets as possible for weight and coziness. If I get too warm, I'll stick out a foot or something to regulate my body temperature.

    3 seasons of the year,

    my window is open all the way, and I have a fan circulating air. The only time it isn't is in Summer, when instead I keep the A/C cranked up in my room.

    Now, in the winter, no matter how cold it is you can turn on the electric blanket and pile on more blankets and get toasty warm even if you can't afford to use the central heating unit. In summer, ugh, even if you take off all your clothes and sleep on one of those gel mat...

    I'm a naturally warm person (at least that's

    what everyone tells me). Because of this, my body doesn't function well in warm temperatures. If it's warm in my room, I won't be able to sleep! I figure "what's the point of having a blanket if I'm already warm?" But I need the blanket because I'm used to sleeping with it, so...

    Good Night's Sleep

    I like my room a little cool, not cold, so I could use a sheet and light quilt for cover. A small amount of humidity, just enough to keep my nose and mouth from becoming dry. I like waking up in a warm room.

    Let the air in, please!

    yes, getting into bed at first can be a bit chilly, but that rapidly dissipates. The difficulty is when it is too cold to have bits hanging out.
