Being content with even a little air conditioning

It’s amazing how you can get used to something, even if it’s quite unpleasant.

In my lifetime, I’ve had to go quite a few Summers in hot and humid regions without having air conditioning. Sometimes, I got to the point where any amount of cooling no matter how primitive was very much appreciated. Other than that, I seemed to acclimated to the heat. When your body gets used to something, it may be jarring when you find yourself in very different conditions. What I am getting at, is that very recently my family had air conditioner restored to our home after quite a long time without it. As you would expect, we were very much looking forward to it. When the air conditioner was first installed, it seemed like my room was the quickest to cool down and remain cool. I found it to be quite refreshing and I was thankful. However, it was a little overwhelming. We never even set the temperature below 75 degrees, and yet I felt far cooler than that! I slept well that first night with air conditioner, but in the morning, I found myself wanting to go outside to thaw out in the heat! I had grown so used to dealing with the natural temperatures from the outside that I actually felt compelled to walk out there and soak up the warmth! Ultimately, I feel that it is a good thing that less air conditioner feels like more for me personally. I can certainly save money on energy bills in the future by feeling comfortable with more conservative settings on the thermostat!
