Do you have a habit of leaving the door and windows open when you go to bed? What makes the difference? Any experiences about this.

Once upon a time you could do that but today you can't, I have windo security grills on all opening windows so they are opened permanently, I think it is nice to have fresh air coming in, I think it helps me sleep better.

I don't have a habit of open the door and window when I sleep. If I do that, I feel unsafe and uncomfortable to sleep. It seem that have people see me when I sleep.

I leave the window in our bedroom open in nice weather open. We live in a second floor flat and the bedroom doe not have a porch or balcony attached to it, other wise I would keep it lock at all times. Even so, I close and lock it when we leave. Too much crime in a large metropolis. lol

i would never leave my windows or doors open. not now a days. you can't in todays world. when i was younger we lived in an upstairs apartment and my mom left her bedroom window open with a fan in it. she wake up to something on her hand. it ended up being a bat and my father had to chase it around the house with a fishing net. he finally got it and put it back out. needless to say my mom kept her window closed.lol

except summer i never have my door and windows open when i go to bed. when the door and windows are open, perhaps i will be disturbed by more noises or wind and i don't like wind except when it is very hot. though i have the door and windows closed, i don't think fresh air is the problem because i will open my door and windows open after i get up.

I always have my window ajar a little just to get some air in the room so I don't feel stuffy in the morning! Come to think of it I always leave my bedroom door open as well but this is so the cats can wander in and out at their leisure.

In the Spring and Fall if there is a nice gentle cool breeze it is nice to leave the windows open, to feel that nice fresh air coming through the room is wonderful.

No, my habit is to close the door, windows then turn off the lights. I can't really sleep with a shade of light ON. hehe. I guess that is just me, a habit or ritual before going to sleep hehe

With so much incidence nowadays about rape, theft,robbery and all, I tell you I can't sleep when windows and doors are open! Not unless, any of the family member is awake and watching TV then I have no problem but when I'm alone I have to locked the door and close the window. I just want to be very careful to avoid anything that is not good! even if I know the neighborhood is safe enough! We just need to be safe all the time!

I find it a much better atmosphere for sleeping to have the windows and doors open to create a nice cross breeze and fresh air to waft over your face.

I leave the windows open but keep the doors locked, when I go to sleep. I do not want someone to disturb me at night, means he coming in my room, without me knowing about it.

I always close the doors and windows while going to sleep. Only then I feel secured..Moreover for a hot climate it is necessary for us to use the AC throughout the night. So there is no other go that we have to close the windows and door.
