Are you able to take the heat in the summertime, or do you prefer the winter weather? Someone said you can always find ways to get warm, but cooling off is hard to do. Do you agree with that thought? Which are you, a hotie or a coolie, when it comes to temperature preference?

while for some reason i dont do well in weather extremes, neither hot nor cold, i find that the heat is more unbearable for me. i actually feel sick when i am really overheated. at least in the winter, you can add more clothing!

....Hi cher913, There are many people who cannot tolerate the heat as you. Some people as I as am sure you know, will actually pass out from being overcome with heat. You have to be sure to drink a lot of water, I would keep a thermos or something containing water or Gatorade with me to stay hydrated, when it is hot. You have to be careful if you are affected by very warm weather. Delirium and heat stroke can occur. Thank you so much for responding. Take good care.

See if a health food store manager can tell you what might help your condition. There are many natural things which may be of benefit to you. Thanks so much for your response. Take care.

In our country, there's only two season (wet and dry). Wet season lasted for almost 8 to 10 months and the rest is dry. For me, I would prefer the dry months rather than putting-up my rain coats and umbrella every now and then. Wet seasons too brings more illness as compared to dry season. And to think of it, there are more things we can do during summer than during winter. And if its really hot, there's a lot of things to do to keep us cool (beaches is one of them). Summer is fast approaching and were already planning our picnic to the beach.

....Hi Fulltank, That's a long time to have wet weather, and having that much dampness will certainly affect your health. Sounds as though you and your family have much more fun in the summertime, which I think is the same here in the US. People are freeer in the summertime, don't have to wear as many clothes, and they go more places. The sun affects your attitude I think, it makes you happier. "o). Thanks for your interestimng response, take care.

I prefer to be hot as i have raynauds disease and if i get too cold this causes me alot of pain in my feet as well as in my hands.If in the winter i can stay indoors then i will stay in doors as that way it saves me not going through pain.In the summer i do not mind being too hot as i can get a fan and sit in front of it and there has never been a time that i have felt overly hot.

...Hi there jugsjugs, I am sorry to hear that you have the problem that you have. Do try to stay warm. I keep a lot of socks for my feet in the winter so that they will be warm. Can't stand cold feet. It's as bad as a headache to have cold feet. Thanks so much for your response, take care.

I guess I would have to say I hate cold rather than heat. I'm freezing right now and even if I put on a sweater I can't seem to warm up. I guess though it is easier to try to get warm then to try to cool down. I wish our house had endless hot water. I would go fill up the tub and soak for a few hours.

Hello Artistry, I have to say cold. I am 40 year old. I like summer and it can be 90 degrees and I am wearing pants and feel comforatble. I mind the cold like today only high 20 and going to be in the teens tonight. Snow for tomorrow. I really dispise cold when it windy it feels much colder than what it is. I do not like howling noise at night with then wind and hearing the tree branches swaying back and forth. Thanks and have a great weekend Sincelrey Unique16

...Hi unique16, I am one who likes to be warm, cannot take the cold weather, I must have my heat. If you go outside, you must cover up your face or your nose might fall off, it is so cold. You and I share our dislike of cold weather. Thanks so much for your response, take care, stay warm and cozy. You have a nice weekend as well.

I'll take hot weather over cold any day. I just cannot stand getting cold. Right now it's 11 degrees out with a wind chill below zero, I'm really dreading going out to get the grandson off the bus today. I used to joke that I was looking forwards to the day when I'd get hot flashes, then maybe I'd finally be warm lol (that is, until I actually got them haha) When it's summer and hits up in the 80's, I'm in heaven. When I'm home and do get overheated (which is almost never), I take a damp cool hand towel and lay it around my neck for a little while, it cools you right down real quick!

...Hi JoyfulOne, I cannot stand being cold, I was born in a warm state and when it is cold I am miserable. I make sure that I have plenty of blankets during the winter. I have my socks to keep my feet warm, and anything else I need for my body to be comfortable when it is cold. I hibernate from November to April, waiting for the spring. Hope you are staying warm, take good care. Thanks for your response.
