I always keep my house at a chilly temperature for a few reasons. One, because I like the feeling of being chilly, and two, I noticed chilly temperatures help keep me awake and help me get up in the morning which can be difficult enough as it is. Usually I will purposely keep my overnight temperatures really cold because by the time I wake up in the morning it will be cold. This way if I get any ideas about staying in bed for much longer, I won’t be able to go to sleep with the icy cold temperatures, and the only way to get rid of the freezing temperatures is to get up and change the HVAC thermostat, which at that rate, I might as well stay up. This is how I am able to get myself everyday to start the day. While I knew my A/C definitely had an impact on my life, it wasn’t until the cooling component broke down did I truly realize. My air conditioning must have broken down sometime during the night, because the night before I went to bed it was cold as it usually was, but when I woke up, it was incredibly warm. I am supposed to get up at 8:00 am in the morning to get my day started, but I didn’t wake up till 10:00. With the really warm and comfortable temperatures, I slept right through my alarm! I wasn’t able to get a HVAC repairman out for another day or two, which made it really difficult for me to get up in those days, but when I did have it fixed I didn’t have any more issues.
