This is when I read about changing your temperatures at night can improve your sleep.
For a long time, I was like everyone else. I would run my heating and A/C device only during the day, and then when dusk came, I would turn the cooling unit off, since it would be cooling down anyways. I never really thought that much about this schedule, I thought it was something that everyone did. I have had sleeping issues for as long as I can remember. Ever since I was a teenager, sleep has often evaded me. I am lucky in the aspect that once I fall asleep, I can stay asleep and not have broken sleep like some people do. But falling asleep is the issue. Even with the most comfortable bed, I still find myself tossing and turning, night after night. I have tried many different medications, with varying success. However the medications always made me feel somewhat like a zombie, and so I just decided to deal with my sleep issues. This is when I read about changing your temperatures at night can improve your sleep. More specifically, running the air conditioner at night can actually improve your sleep. I used to keep my dial thermostat set to the high 70s, but after reading about how lower temperatures can improve your sleep, I have started setting the programmable thermostat to the low 70s. I was amazed at the difference, the first night I fell asleep fairly easily and slept through the rest of the night. For once, I woke up feeling refreshed in the morning.
