The body is an amazing piece of technology with many automated process such as breathing, heart beating and sweating. The body tries to keep itself at 98.6 degrees regardless of what the air temperature is. If the body's temperature drops to much our brain tells our muscles are told by the brain to contract and expand quickly, resulting in a shiver. This process generates heat, but also burns a lot of energy, too.

Shivering is just another way our body works to maintain itself — take it as a clue to get out of the cold or add another layer of clothing. Keep in mind as we age, our systems decrease inability to identify changes and respond accordingly. There is no substitute for common sense.

Shivering is actually a good thing, as hypertherma (body core temperature being to low) can result in death.
