Freeze your breeze

If you place a bowl or tray of ice in front of a blowing fan your room will become cooler as the ice melts.

Shut out the sun

Keep blinds and curtains closed during the day as a preventative measure to stop your room from overheating.

Get in the shade

It's advisable to step into the shade between 11am and 3pm, in the UK, this is the time of the day where the sun is strongest.

Eat small meals regularly

Your body warms up as it works to process larger meals.  Metabolic heat is needed to break down food, so eating smaller portions can help keep you cooler.

Choose cotton

Opting for lightweight cotton clothing is the best option when it's scorching outside.  Avoid dark colours and keep summery with whites and creams, as these are more likely to reflect the sun's radiation.

Keep hydrated

Sweating can cause dehydration, making you more susceptible to heat exhaustion and heat stroke.  Drinking cool glasses of water throughout the day can be enough to bring your body temperature down.  

Get low

Hot air rises, so get down as low as you can to make sure you’re surrounded by cool air.  Sleep on the floor, or even head downstairs, if you’re getting desperate to escape the heat.

Rinse your wrists

Washing either your wrists or your feet with cold water before you hit the hay can help you to cool down and drift off.

Keep your feet cool

There are plenty of pulse points around the feet and ankles, so dunking your feet into an ice bucket can help take your temperature down.
