In 1977 Jimmy Carter was roasted for appearing on national television in a cardigan and asking America to turn down the thermostat a few degrees to help save energy. America was facing a cold winter and an energy shortage.
All of us must learn to waste less energy. Simply by keeping our thermostats, for instance, at 65 degrees in the daytime and 55 degrees at night we could save half the current shortage of natural gas.
Without discussing the love that Tiny Choices feels for Jimmy Carter: those are words to live by! as the temperatures grow colder in the Northern Hemisphere, instead of turning up your thermostat take a few minutes dig out your sweaters and heavy socks and then turn the temperature a little lower. If you get too chilly, take a break from whatever you’re working on and wash the dishes or scrub out the tub. That will warm you up!
Do you have any tips for staying warm in the winter?
