How do you cope with extreme cold or heat? Somehow, it seems easier to get warm in the winter than it does to get cool when the weather is extremely hot. In winter you can rug up in multiple warm layers, exercise to get warm or switch on the heater – or all three. But when the temperature is soaring and you wear minimal clothing you can still feel uncomfortably hot and sweaty unless you are lucky enough to have efficient air conditioning.
Even wearing all cotton clothing, shorts, tops with spaghetti straps and nothing on your feet it is still hot. When the heat goes on for weeks and months, it can leave you feeling lethargic and unable to be bothered with anything or anyone, especially when the nights are also hot. Hot nights make for restless sleeping – if you can get to sleep at all.
