Air conditioning helps with sleep cycles

When I was a small child, my family lived in the country far out from the city limits. I can remember that house as if it were yesterday. There was this amazing tree that sat outside of my family room window I used to climb all day long. There were unusual colored flowers throughout the seasons over the years that you just don’t see in the city. And no matter what time of the year, there was consistently some type of animal hanging around the barnyard. When I was ten, my parents decided to move us to the city for what they imagined a better life and education. My Mom had a job with a sizable law firm in the city and was required to be closer to the courthouse. I liked being in the city, and actually I’ve been here ever since that time. Sporadically, I do find myself venturing up to the country to stay for a few afternoons and remember the feel of what it was like to relax.  I appreciate being away from the city on these mini trips, because I can smell the fresh air unlike the smog you smell in the city. Most cabins don’t have any type of central air conditioner program at all, which some city goers can’t handle. I for one totally appreciate opening the windows wide. It does not bother me in the least not having the air conditioner to access. It’s cooler while in the summertime out in the country as well, so I don’t need to use the air conditioner like I do in my city home. With the windows open all day, the whole house smells like heaven with hay, trees and fresh cut lawn. I appreciate that smell more than most as I love to remember my parents, because it reminds me of growing up in the country with them. They died a while back, now. It’s consistently nice to come back to the city at the same time, too, because I miss being in the comfort of my own home. I consistently miss having the air conditioner running at night some sleepless nights.  It’s taxing to sleep with the windows open with so much worry, for there are so many animals in the woods. It’s even harder to sleep with them closed ironically. If there is no breeze at all, it is stuffy and hot. It’s a delicate balance between safety plus comfort. But, when I am home, I don’t have to worry about my central Heating plus A/C system. It consistently keeps me comfortable when I need it to, no matter what the outdoor weather is like.
