As I already mentioned in my post called “Being naked outside. Isn’t that cold?” I am now convinced there is a link between wearing clothes and the sensation of warm and cold.
A while ago I had a half day to work at home. As usual I didn’t wear any clothes then, which is normal whenever the temperature is agreeable for me. Then I had to go to the office, for which I had to dress. At one point it became very clear to me that wearing clothes has a very definite effect on the way a body experiences warm and cold. In the office the temperature was reasonably nice on my arms (sleeves rolled up) but it felt very warm on every part of skin that was covered with clothing, up to the point that it made me drowsy.
That made it once again clear to me that wearing clothes in conditions where they’re not necessary will hinder your body in feeling comfortable. Smart people that we are, we fix that by artificial cooling devices called air conditioners.
Doesn’t that strike you as at least a bit odd?
