I personally love doing hot/cold, it’s a great way to recover, if you’re going into the hot tub make sure you periodically get out and into a cold shower.

This checklist of 10 reasons your internal thermostat is out of whack can help you get a handle on why you're chronically freezing your butt off. You're too thin Low body weight — defined as a BMI hovering around 18.5 or under — can chill you out for a couple of reasons. First, when you're underweight, you lack an adequate level of body fat to insulate you from cold temperatures, explained Maggie Moon, RD, a Los Angeles – based nutritionist. The other thing is, to maintain that low BMI, you have to reduce your food intake so you likely aren't eating very much at all. Skimping on calories puts the brakes on your metabolism, so you don't create enough body heat. Consider putting on a few pounds by loading up on whole, healthy foods that contain lots of protein, fat, and complex carbohydrates.

Always being cold is a telltale sign of hypothyroidism, which means Your Thyroid doesn't secrete enough thyroid hormone.

It's spring once again, the streets are paved with mud and the hills are alive with the sound of mosquitos.
Think of a cold front that forms when a very cold air mass comes down to the U.S. from Canada, here we find a very hot plasma mass coming outward from the sun that encounters the cold plasma in the interstellar medium. It does not surprise me that a sharp boundary forms.
