I'm printing out this article for my husband in bold letters. A new study finds sleeping in a cold room could actually be bad for your health.
My hubby keeps our room so cold at night I use an electric blanket and a heating pad. He actually opens the window, even when it's down in the 20s.
Researchers found that people who slept in a 57-degree room overnight saw their blood pressure rates jump six to eight percent after climbing out of bed in the morning compared to sleepers who slept in a 76-degree room.
Researchers say the spike in blood pressure lasts at least two hours and, over time, can put a strain on the heart.
