  • Not a secret- air conditioning. But there are also gel packs used for hot and cold compresses you can put in freezer or fridge. Or just a cold beverage can be placed on the back of the neck or forehead helps. Or you could even use something already in the fridge or freezer like a bag of frozen veggies or berries. You can also make a towel or washcloth damp and put it in fridge or freezer- or two so you can rotate them. A fan blowing directly on damp skin works well, also boosts effects of ac. If you don't have ac use someone else's. Restaurant, store, library, church, neighbors... Also don't wear synthetic fibers they don't breathe. Its like wrapping yourself in plastic! Loose fitting cotton is good. Shorts are better than pants, skirts better than shorts and a dress even better. Be careful exposing too much skin in the sun and always use sunscreen. I know it makes you sweat more, but sunburn is hotter! Cool showers are heavenly for you and spraying the roof of your house MAY help depending on the home. That's all I can think of off the top of my head. Stay cool !

      I've just been living in the south for a long time! I thought of more. Always stay hydrated! It helps you sweat. And you need to sweat if you're hot! It cools you. If you stop sweating you may be in heat stroke and need to go to the hospital. Drink iced drinks, but not alcohol. It dehydrates you and will bring on heat stroke faster. Go swimming and let yourself air dry in air conditioning or in front of a fan or at the very least in the shade. Preferably sipping an iced drink. Here's a great list! https://greatist.com/happiness/tricks-to-sleep-in-the-heat

  • I have my AC on, a fan in the living room, and I sleep with a fan on as well. For more ideas, just Google.
