Turn the Thermostat Down at Night
For all you thrifty people who like to turn down the thermostat at night, here's another reason to support your habit. Keeping the thermostat between 60 degrees and 68 degrees drops your core temperature enabling you to drift off faster and enjoy deeper sleep. People who get seven to eight hours of shut-eye nightly are up to 50% less likely to be overweight. Sleep is critical for regulating hormones that control hunger and insulin sensitivity. Be sure to get your beauty sleep y'all!
