Do you like working in the heat?

Most times when I work at the computer, I have the air conditioner on. I have to do that, even during the winter, or I can't breath well. Having the window air conditioner on helps me think more clearly. Otherwise I just get caught up in tangents and run around in circles online and get nothing done. That's just my experience though. I'm sure there are lots of people that love working in the heat. And, that's great. But, it doesn't work for me. Do you find it hard to work if your room or office is too hot? Or do you thrive in any environment?

My computer is in our basement, so I don't really have to worry about too much heat while I'm online. Our basement stays pretty nice all year round. As far as doing other things, I have a really hard time cleaning when it's hot. I hate cleaning the upstairs bathroom in the summer, because it just never cools down enough to give it a really thorough cleaning. We just have a couple of window units, and the air doesn't really reach into the bathroom from either of them.

I dont like working under a relatively hot environment either. AC is open the whole time I am in the office. I don't even want to go out because its hot outside, so I just order my lunch and eat inside the office. The same thing in my room, even when I'm in the Philippines, I prefer to stay inside our room than at the living room or somewhere else in the house wherein theres no AC.

I don't like heat much. I can't tolerate extreme heat well. It seems like I overheat more than the usual person and it drives me crazy. I have longer hair too that is usually worn down when I am inside so I know that accounts for some of the heat problems but still I can't take heat well so I prefer not to work in the heat if I can help it.

I don't even like breathing or moving when it's hot. I don't have the luxury of A/C here but hopefully I can make some changes soon. Heat makes me feel ill and I can't concentrate. Well technically it's the humidity that does me in and I'm not even in the worse place for humidity...someday I'll move some place dry.

I don't like working in the heat or doing anything really as I over heat too quickly but then I don't like the cold either. I get really sleepy the hotter it gets sometimes I wonder if I am a mammal at all. I seem to be more cold blooded.
