Do you often think about your furnace?
The odds are that you don’t, and that it’s turned up somewhere in the low-to-mid twenties (Celsius; you Fahrenheit types know what yours is set to). But what if you turned that down?
In my day-to-day life, I’ve turned the thermostat down to about 15 degrees, and suddenly I found myself noticing every time the furnace came on. That’s because I need it, now, and it’s no longer just something that happens in the background.
Any time you’re comfortable, try doing with less. You’ll notice more about your surroundings.
