What Conserving Energy is Costing You
You probably have put some effort into making sure to keep your energy bills down this season. You may have put some extra weather-stripping around the windows, or added some insulation. You put the storm windows up and made sure that everything is sealed up tight.
But, as tempting as it is to wrap up in a blanket on the couch, hibernate and wait for Spring, don't do it! Even now, when walking across the parking lot sounds like the last think you would want to do, do it! Invest in some warm gloves and a nice toasty hat and scarf and walk across that lot. And walk up those stairs. And get off that couch!
And here's an extra bonus for you - shivering burns calories! So let yourself be a little cold. Get out and walk around the block, even when the wind is blowing and the snow is falling. You won't melt. I promise.
Conserve the energy on your electric bill, but when it comes to your own personal energy, use it. The beauty of it is, the more you use, the more you'll have. You can be your own personal power plant! An Energy Star!
Burn baby, burn!
