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

    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...

    The last couple of nights have demonstrated

    just this for me too as last night in particular, was the warmest July day on record in England at37C. Felt so close and stuffy ON bed last night! Have to have the window open, even in the depths of winter.

    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

    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.

    Last night my room was

    so freakin warm! It was unbearable! I kept waking up. My air conditioning wasn't working. I should've slept down stairs with the working one.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    This sucks. It's 11:48pm

    and my room is way too hot and stuffy. I just can't get to sleep. I tried watching a tv show to pass the time and make me tired, but I just can't sleep :(

    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...

    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 becomes hard to breath.

    I end up kicking my blankets off in the middle of the night.

    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...

    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.

    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.

    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...
