Is there any difference between these sentences? Is either one preferred?
Feeling cold, she turned the heater on.
Being cold, she turned the heater on.
I somehow feel "Feeling" is more often used looking back my English experience. (I'm a teacher, not a student.)
To tell you the background, these are two possible answers for a question in my English workbook. There is not context because it's just a grammar drill. The correct answer list shows only "Feeling" as the correct answer, though it doesn't say "Being" is wrong.
