Only open windows on the sides that are shaded to let cooler air in.

If temperatures are extremely high you may be better off keeping all windows and doors shut until dusk.


#2 Eat lighter and little and often and avoid large heavy meals.

Always consult a qualified aromatherapist before using essential oils if you have a serious medical condition.


#9 Have a lukewarm bath or shower.  It’s tempting to have a cold shower but your body will try and heat up to compensate for the cold soon after.
