The reasons why it is better to sleep in an unheated room (@ dr.karanr)
While the temperatures outside continue to zigzag, the temperatures inside have already dropped significantly and caused us to turn on the heating, especially at night.
Dr. Karen Raj, the undisputed tiktok doctor, argues that it is a mistake to turn on the heating when we go to bed, and that maintaining a cool room before falling asleep is critical to our health.
In the tiktok video, Dr. Raj explained: "The hormone that our body secretes with darkness and thus signals to the brain that it is time to go to sleep) increases the tendency to sleep, is also a hormone that promotes anti-aging."
Melatonin is part of the system that regulates the sleep-wake cycle chemically, while causing a feeling of drowsiness and lowering body temperature.
He added: "The core temperature of our body needs to drop in order for us to fall asleep, so a cooler temperature in the room brings you closer to your body's sleeping temperature target, so you will fall asleep much faster."

Dr. Raj added: “Warmer temperatures mean your brain and body will be more active in trying to cool you down.
This increased brain activity limits the amount of REM and the slow wave sleep your body needs to recharge. "
