Air-Conditioning

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.

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.
