Temperatures May Support Your Efforts
By Tom Herrin
Most people are constantly on the lookout for things that make life easier. Sometimes it can be small but have a large amount of impact on everything. With modern technology, it is possible to control the environment for most, at least when it comes to anything that is done indoors. You can manage humidity, air flow, and anything else that may come in this category. With the simple touch of a few buttons, anyone can select temperatures that can help them to make life better.
Everyone has their own preference as to sleeping comfort. Many find it a constant battle to be able to sleep well and stay asleep. It has been noted that there are some ranges of temperatures that may be best to help do this. While a general range of temperatures for quality living is often thought to be from about 60 to 80 degrees, the best range for sleeping is much smaller than that. It is believed to be from 65 to 72 degrees. Some have gone another step and defined the ideal temperature as 68 degrees. Though it may not be prime for energy saving, it seems to help sleep.
Manage Weight Successfully
Some people are able to manage their weight easily while others find it quite difficult. This is not any new revelation. The fact is that everyone is different and, very much, an individual. Some have found that this is best accomplished at a temperature range of 64 to 67 degrees. It apparently helps the body to function at its best. It is also believed that shivering may increase the body's rate at which it burns calories as much as five times. For those who can deal with it, this may provide a new tool in their efforts so long as they don't overdo it.
Make It Easy on Yourself
I am always on board when it comes to doing something the easy way. I have had difficulties sleeping for a long time. A few years ago, I began to turn down my thermostat before going to bed at night. It has seemed to help. When I sleep in a cooler environment, I may do so with light covers and avoid tossing and turning. I feel like it works well for me. If you struggle with this, you may want to consider it as well.
