As for why why bathing improves sleep, Mr. Hagayeg said, “Our body temperature is high in the morning and evening, and the temperature falls before sleep at night. If you take a bath, blood circulation will improve, and if blood circulation improves, the temperature will be released from the center of the body to the body surface, resulting in a decrease in body temperature. The body cools down to the proper temperature for going to bed, so the quality of sleep will be better. '

Mr. Hagayeg, who announced the results of his research, is working on the development of a “bed that can be used for warm bathing”.
