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

    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...

    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

    Too Hot In The Room

    If my room is too hot and stuffy I have to turn on my fan and if that don't work I go down stairs and sleep on the couch as I am tonight.

    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.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    Definitely can not sleep in those conditions.

    In fact, we keep our window open all year around except for when the temp goes in the negative numbers. Our room tends to get stuffy if you put on the heat. So we never do. We also sleep with two fans on us. Well one is directly on my head. I also need the sound of the fan...

    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...

    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 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.

    Too True

    As many of you know I share my bedroom with my younger sister. This is usually fine during the winter. However the problem starts in the Summer. We do not live on the main road but my sister will not have the window open - it gets shut at about half six in the evening (this is...

    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.

    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...
