5. My adjustments include

1) A heated mattress pad and electric blanket
2) A full length down robe and
3) the knowledge that we burn more calories when cold and could stand to lose a few pounds
4) cozying up with two fur babies the bonus being the oxytocin from the snuggles

I've also done things like patch gaps and hang heavy drapes to block drafts, I also only heat (and in the summer, cool) spaces I actually live in by keeping doors closed and hanging curtains in doorways using tension rods in door jams to block drafts. Hooded bed jackets and socks are cozy additions, lots of warm fuzzy socks.
