Your body temperature plays a big role in getting a good night’s rest. If you’re going to have a shower before bed, make it a cold one. When we take a warm shower close to bed, we raise our body temperature, which naturally falls around 10 p.m. You simply can’t get to sleep as easily if your body temperature is too warm.
According to David Randall the author of Dreamland: Adventures in the Strange Science of Sleep. One study by researchers in France, found that subjects fell asleep faster and had a better overall quality of sleep following behaviors that cooled the body, such as taking a cold shower right before bed.
