Last night for the first time this year I slept under an electric blanket. My sleep habits are a bit strange. About 15 years ago my wife and I bought twin beds from Penney's. They are adjustable beds, like hospital beds. I sleep on my back, never on my side or stomach.
We had them both in our bedroom, but we got older and her sleeping became harder. She has a lot of pain that causes her not to sleep well. So sometimes she slept in another bedroom. Over about a 10 year period she slept in the other bedroom more and more. When we moved to town last may we just set up two bedrooms. I kept one of the twin beds. About that time I had visited a "Relax the Back" store. I was looking for a massage chair, but I set in a "O" gravity chair. I really liked the feel of it. I went home and adjusted my bed as close to that position as I could.
We have a small motor home with twin beds. I have mine adjusted as close to the "O" gravity chair as I could. Also we have sleeping bags on the beds. I really like the sleeping bag to sleep in. I do not like to fight covers when I get up at night and do not like the weight of the covers. So in my bed at home I sleep on top of the covers with a light blanket over me. We keep the house temperature at night about 65 degrees. Sometimes I do not sleep as worm as I would like and 1/2 the time I sleep in my longjohns.
As I said above last night I slept under one of those light electric blankets that you use for a cover while watching TV. I started the night in my longjohns but had to take off the bottoms, I also wear under shorts, but left the longjohn top on because the electric blanket is not long enough to tuck under my feet and reach much past my belly. I folded the blanket over about my waist. Where it is double is where I kept my hands and it is warmer there. This morning my hands were not as stiff.
I got too wordy again, but it seemed to really help. Just wondered if some of you use an electric blanket.
