Tips to cool down this Summer

  • Use your air conditioner.
  • No air conditioning then put a bowl of ice in front of your fan. If you’re using a basic fan, this can greatly increase its effectiveness.
  • Keep a spray bottle of water in the fridge. Spritzing yourself then provides a fast way to cool down.
  • Keep the curtains drawn. Keeping the sunlight out is more effective than opening the windows, especially on still days.
  • Take advantage of public air conditioning. You don’t have to stay at home: head to a shopping centre or a public library to take advantage of cooler temperatures.
  • Drink plenty of cooling liquids. 8 glasses a day of water is essential.
