Around the House
Light-colored bed linen made of light fabrics is better to sleep in as they are breathable and excellent for promoting airflow and ventilation in the bedroom.
Heat enters your home as sunlight through windows
Add blackout curtains or blinds to rooms that get direct sun. Keep the shades drawn, and the blinds closed. This action substantially prevents your home from becoming a miniature greenhouse as it reduces the flow of heat coming into your house.
There are other ways to use a hot water bottle
Instead of filling the bottle with hot water, you can fill it up with tap water and store it in the freezer. Once frozen, you can place this bottle around your house. It will act like a temporary ice pack cooling the area at the same time.
Moving air makes a big difference
A ceiling or a portable fan increases air circulation and cool your room down in a low-energy way. Pointing portable fans slightly towards the windows pushes out hot air, so remember to place them strategically.
All Around You
When you’re sweating because of the heat, drinking enough water becomes even more critical. Even if you have to trick yourself into drink more water, you will be much more comfortable if you keep refilling your water glass.
Know Your Body’s Best Cooling Points
Finally, if you are at home and still feeling the heat, wrap up some ice cubes and apply onto your wrist and neck. These pulse points will cool you down quickly.
But don’t let that bogged you down. Try out these smart ways to escape the heat, and you might just be making your day a little cooler.
