  • Sit close to a fan.
  • Use the frozen gel packs for cool boxes on your neck, wrists, and the backs of your knees.
  • Put a damp flannel in the fridge, then use it to dab your wrists and the backs of your knees.
  • Put a damp tea towel in the fridge then wear it on your head.
  • Put damp bandages in the fridge, then wrap them around your ankles.
  • Eat light meals and snacks often, rather than a full heavy meal.
  • Stay hydrated.
  • Cool down drinks faster by wrapping a damp piece of kitchen paper around the bottle before putting it in the fridge.
  • Freeze bottles of water to carry around with you.
  • Carry a parasol with you outside.
