Tips to Survive Hot Summer Without Air Conditioning
In the UK, brutal temperatures are unavoidable in summer. So how to cool down without air-condition? It’s possible, we swear!
It’s been a long sweaty summer, but we can all get through it with a little ingenuity and a lot of water. Once the winter temperatures come, we will all be dreaming of summer again, so try to have fun while keeping hydrated.
Some few tips on how to stay cool in summer:
A cold shower takes on a whole new meaning in the summertime. Rinsing off under a stream of cold H20 rinses off sweat.
For anyone who doesn’t spend the hottest parts of the day in an office, summer can be rough. Pick a loose, soft cotton shirt and shorts or underwear.
Sleep like an Egyptian
Speaking of sleeping, night-time can be particularly awful during a heatwave. The so-called “Egyptian method” involves dampening a sheet or towel in cool water and using it as a blanket.
Fill up the tank
Drink lots of water and remember, your friend’s caffeine and alcohol further dehydrate you. So, try and drink 8 glasses a day. Getting a water cooler might be the best option.
If all fails, find a place to hang. If you work from home head to an air-conditioned coffee shop. Or, if it’s the weekend, the movies, library, or beach can provide some relief.
