Control Climate, Manage Health
By Tom Herrin
Dong more for health may involve a variety of things. For many years, it may have been considered to be doing more of whatever is believed to be the thing. For those who have issues that affect their health, it often means doing more of the same. It may be the same old diet or some other standard practice. At times, good results may be had by thinking a little more outside the box. In today's world, many researchers are finding all kinds of ways to make positive changes in people's health. By using a more creative approach to asking questions to new problems, they are making some interesting discoveries.
Sleep Problems Are Common
The number of individuals who experience problems of some kind with sleeping may be larger that one might think. Some studies have focused on what effect temperature may have on this. It is generally understood that most people prefer to live in temperatures from 60 to 80 degrees. In studies, it has been found that the range that is considered to be best for optimal sleeping is 65 to 72 degrees. Apparently when temps are too warm, they may inhibit the completion of the full sleep cycle. Each part of it is important in order for a person to get the most out of a night's sleep.
Weight Loss Made Easier
More people than not worry about losing weight, or so it seems. It is one of those things that is a big concern, and many have little success. According to some studies, there may be a temperature range that works best for losing weight. In fact, this range is very specific. It is 64-67 degrees. There must be something to it. In addition to this, some believe that those who shiver may burn calories by as much as five times the normal rate. For those who are willing to try this, it could be a lot for the effort.
Test It for Yourself
If you want proof that temperatures can make a difference, put it to the test. For a long time, I had problems sleeping, but I remembered that I usually slept really well when it was cold outside. I would pull the covers over me and be out. Some people use a weighted blanket due to the notion that it may help. I always turn down my thermostat at night before I go to bed. It seems to work. I find myself sleeping through the night much better.
