I Can't Sleep If My Bedroom Is Hot Or Stuffy

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 2,726 People

    Can anyone sleep under these conditions?

    I just imagine some person being like "I love sweating in my sleep and when I can't breathe through my nose uuuuugh it's so perfect!" I don't even like my room being warm. I have to be able to cover up which is kinda weird. I like the room cold so I can cuddle under a blanket...

    A cold bed. I can't get into bed to sleep

    unless my bed is cold. I snuggle and get off to sleep straight away that way. I can't stand stuffy rooms, that's why I have slatted windows.mi can open them a little to allow air in. I can't sleep with a lot of noise, like snoring. It wakes me from my corpse like slumber. A...

    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...

    I prefer a cool bedroom,

    I sleep with the window open when I can, if not, I use as little coverings as I can

    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...

    If there are more than two people in the

    bedroom, you need open the window! Stuffiness affects me quite a lot! Hot rooms are soon stuffy rooms.

    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.

    Ugh I always sleep with my window open.

    Summer, winter, rain or shine I need the fresh air. If I sleep with the window closed I have a headache in the morning:(

    I've always preferred sleeping in a cold/cool

    room. I always have a hard time sleeping in a hot/warm room, but then in the morning when I need to get up out of my warm bed, it's torture #freezing 😬 lol

    Horrible!

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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

    It's To Hot..

    If it is to hot and stuffy, I can forget about sleeping.  I have a window cracked to full open almost year round.  Even in winter my house is not above about 63-65 degrees.  I can't sleep unless the room is cool, below 65 degrees. I like the room cool and snuggle under my...

    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.
