This summer has been a scorcher all over the world. As the mercury soars, it can be harder to feel comfortable and even to concentrate as our minds are off dreaming of days by the pool in Margaritaville with a nice breeze blowing in from the sea. Whether it be trying to fall asleep in the persistent, humid, and sticky weather or just cooling off during a blazing afternoon, we’ve gathered together some tips and tricks to keep you cool day and night – no air conditioner required.
In this list, we’ve covered the full spectrum of summer cooling activities, minus opening a fire hydrant with a wrench and playing in the outflow. You’ll see some food tips that will help you cool off from the inside out; some tips for your house that will keep things cooler inside; and some tips to help you keep cooler at bedtime. (Since our body temperature drops as we fall asleep, making yourself cooler before bedtime will help you fall asleep faster and sleep more soundly.)
