Mind The Temperature
Although most people sleep better in a cool room, with many painful chronic diseases, you will want to keep your joints and muscles warm. When the weather is cool, sleep under an electric blanket or set one on a timer to come on shortly before wake up time to reduce morning joint pain and stiffness. If you find it easier to get to sleep with a heating pad, set it on a timer to turn off 30 to 60 minutes after bedtime. Sleeping on a heating pad could potentially cause burns.
