Boston winters may be chilly — but Boston summers still pack a punch. And as the country, and globe, reaches record high temperatures, you might be wondering why your neighbor seems to be handling the heat much better than yourself.

Well, it turns out, it could be due to your genetic code. Some are born with a tendency towards handling heat better. What can also affect your ability to withstand heat is age — very young and older people tend to get overheated faster — lifestyle factors such as weight, alcohol intake, certain medications or health conditions, like diabetes.

You can also increase your tolerance towards heat by slowly increasing the time you spend outdoors and avoiding air conditioning so you can better acclimate to the outdoors — but this advice is given with caution, and shouldn’t be done without speaking to your doctor especially if you fall under the above conditions.
