Tuesday/ 65 °F for sleep

Picture from the Wall Street Journal in an article that says 65 F is the ideal room temperature for sleep.

Turn down the thermostat to 65 °F (18.3 °C) to fall asleep easier, and sleep better, says the science about sleep.  The body’s core temperature actually needs to drop by 2 or 3 °F to initiate sleep.  And what I suspect many of us in warmer climates know : the body tries to lose heat through the hand and feet, so stick one or two out from under the blanket if the room temperature is a little too high.
