At What Temperature Do You Function Best?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I have been hearing about the heat waves in parts of the U.S. and feel for those affected. Our weather here is extreme from - 40F to +95F. Currently it is around 70F which to me is lovely. Our winters here are challenging but I am also heat intolerant (a big symptom in fibromyalgia it turns out). My early morning walks begin around 6-6:30 AM to avoid the heat.

My ideal temperature is about 60-70F, when I am the most energetic. Heat absolutely drains me; cold just plain hurts. What is your ideal temperature?

I like 65 to 70 during the day and 50's at night. I hate having to plug in my AC but may have to tonight as it was in the 90's and very humid here today.

It was 93 here today in NY--and I think I may be in the minority here, but I LOVE it B)

My joint pain does not seem to be any worse or better no matter what the temperature.

My siblings etc..we are all beach babies...bake and then, swim like fish in cold New England water...no problem. B) ...except hub--Pure Irish-- and he would fry like bacon out there. :blink: We cover him up. :lol:

Ideally of course, 75 is perfect--lucky JUDY in California!! :)

That must be really hard, actually. I prefer evenings/nights cool at around 50F or so.

Actually I can't complain because the house is nice and comfortable. But, yeah, I like nights around 50

I just checked outside to report to you guys....it is 75 right now at 9 PM but it is nice ...Windows wide open!! Hubby will want the AC on, but I prefer the breeze and overhead fan. We live in the country and the tree frogs are noisy tonight and the fireflies are flitting all around...pretty cool! My cat is trying to catch them :lol: I already shooed her away from the bunnies today <_< ...

I like early morning about 55 F, and mid day to be around 65 or so. Igh, the heat just makes me cranky.

Oh, I don't mind cold. I only mind ice.

I live in So FL where its 90+ degrees 7 mths of the yr. I hate it but enjoying gloating in the winter when my friends are freezing their A$$e$ off up north lol...

I agree with the others low humidity & in the the low 60's to low 70's I like it so I can walk outside & not sweat or feel tired & sweaty .

My Florida friend often sticks her tongue out at me on Skype as she is in her tank top and I am wrapped in a blanket with a fire raging in the wood stove all winter. I used to visit her in August and that stiffling heat never bothered me. When we went down there in the winter, I swam in the gulf and the people thought me insane--it was "too cold" for them. :blink:

Yet, last summer, in the throes of celiac illness (preDX) I was FREEZING cold and wearing a sweat suit. My body temp was 94 and I did not sweat in a sauna. How weird was THAT?? :blink:

Do you guys think I'll level off at some point??? :huh:

I like anything below 80. I grew up here in south Florida and I hate the heat. I know it gets hot just about everywhere in the country, but when I'm sweating on Halloween, it's frustrating. I can remember going swimming on Christmas day when I was a kid. I have spent some winters up north, and I start shivering faster than anyone else, but I prefer it to heat. It's easier to keep layering up than to take them off and still be hot. :P

I like cool and dry. Even in the winter, I never have my thermostat set above 62. It is dry here, and although it does get hot (90's) sometimes in summer, nights cool off so much that windows open is all I need.

I think I function best at whatever temperature it is not. :rolleyes:

I can't take either temperature extreme of very hot or cold anymore. Moved out of the midwest to get away from the subzero winter ****. In northern CA and the Pacific northwest unless you go up into higher elevations the winters in the valleys are not as bad, but they are wet. Wet. and wet. And the summers are dry, and hot.

Except this year it kept raining, and raining, and it never warmed up. Up until a week and a half ago it was still going down into the forties at night (farenheit, so that would be about 6

As a person who has done more than play an occasional game of golf or tennis and being an avid hiker, skier, snowmobiling, dirt and street motorcycling... I have spent many days and nights sleeping in an unheated cabin outside in cold temps below zero with no running water and using an out-house to spending days crossing deserts in temps above 115 deg.

The heat drains everyone (yes everyone) when you are outside and not in an air conditioned environment or a cave. When I compare that to being properly dressed (warm/ comfortable) in a cold environment outdoors I must say that I feel better being in the cold.

Now if you ask me if I prefer to live in a warmer or colder area i would prefer to live in a warmer area with a good air-conditioner. But if I had to live full-time outdoors with no roof over my head for the rest of my life I would prefer being in a medium type of climate between 60 to 85 degrees.

60 to 70 is perfect to me. I am still okay if it dips down to say...50. I just put on a jacket. I hate heat and I hate cold.
