The best sleeping experiences for me were when I was out of state in a hotel. Cranked the A/C and had two layers of cover (usually a sheet and a blanket) with the air unit being the only source of noise. I think a part of it is also jet lag and it doesn’t take long to actually fall asleep.
As opposed to here in Florida where I am typing this with a fan and one sheet. I’m recovering from heel surgery so the tingling nerve sensations aren’t helping. Once that goes away ( fingers crossed), I can bring back my bed fan:
must be cold enough so i can use the big comforter and thus be comfortable. also must be quiet and dark to fall asleep. once asleep, i can sleep through light/noise if i’m determined/really tired. although this was a more effective superpower when i was younger. fortunately, as i get older there’s less i have to try to sleep through, so it works out.
but yeah, if it’s hot, everything else could be ideal and i still wouldn’t be able to sleep.
All the above. I need quiet, dark and cool temp. I’m short on sleep right now because it’s too darn hot! Woke up covered in sweat. Got the window open and fan going but it’s just not enough. Don’t want to have to run the air conditioner yet (it’s still comfortable downstairs). Gonna have to get an evaporative cooler for the bedroom today. Any one of those factors involved, sleep won’t come easy. Apparently.
