Study has found that colder rooms can help you battle insomnia. The research discovered that one of the causes of insomnia is the body’s failure to drop to its core temperature. When the body drops in temperature, it naturally complies to the normal sleep cycle.

As the definition implies, the researchers who are from the University of South Australia identified the two kinds of insomnia – the Sleep Onset insomnia and the Sleep Maintenance insomnia.



The former occurs when naturally falling asleep is a problem; while the latter occurs when one finds it hard to stay asleep.

The researchers discovered that sufferers of both conditions have an irregular thermo-regulatory system. Their bodies tend to have higher core temperatures than those who sleep normally or well.
