for dealing with the cold. Wouldn't work at night though. My 5th grade teacher taught me this and it always stuck with me.
Close your eyes and stare at the sun. It really warms you up.
We have a local lady who wears shorts all year long, even in sub- zero temperatures., who is a regular visitor to the library. I asked her once and she said it's not so bad. She does exhibit signs of being schitzophrenic though.
Maybe her mental condition helps her deal with it. I always wondered about the Sherpa Guides in Nepal that go up Everest. I've seen them often in documentaries walking up the mountain in the snow with no shoes on.
Snowing here today, but I'm fully dressed for it.

And a happy new year to you!
I like the staring at the sun exercise. I'll give it a shot.
As for the woman who exhibits signs of schizophrenia, I'm really not surprised. When you go against the grain of the majority people think you're nuts. My mother warned me earlier today that if I go round telling people it's mild when it's freezing I'll get stoned. She reckons if I was living in the middle ages I would have been burnt at the stake. :-)
I believe heat and cold are states of mind. I have noticed when I'm not thinking of being hot or cold I feel neither hot or cold. It's difficult to describe the feeling, I just feel good.
Incidentally, I've just read a friend's mediumship blog about last night's sitting and someone was shown how to tune into the power within to keep yourself warm. Here's the link. [link]
Lots of love,

u may hav the abilty to ignore the cold but that duznt stop ur body from eventualy going into hyperthermia. Im sure that Scott and hiz krew dreamed they wer on a hot tropical island right up until the point when they froze to death. U r quite mad Miss Ej but if it wernt for people like u the world wood be a far less intresting place, especialy for me on this site.
Oh and for gods sake if u wonna exercise go to the gym DONT stare at the sun! It will be the last thing u ever see.
Skitzafrenik people will feel hot n cold at the same fkin time koz ther fkin nutz. I see a guy get off the bus the ova day wearing a coat, a wolly hat, n shorts with sandles and it woz about -10c. U kood say that this guy had an unique and divine ability to disconnect temperature and pain throo yearz of mental and physical disiplin n that he woz in full control of his bodys shakra points and chi energyz, or u kood say that the guy just myt be a bit of n idiot. U decide.
