We have collected some proven tips on how to survive the heat.

How to cool the room

1. Open all the doors inside the house

To cool the rooms, air circulation is necessary. You can also turn on the fan. This will ensure the movement of air and will not allow sweat to accumulate.

2. Keep blinds or curtains closed

Up to 30% of the heat comes from windows. Close the shutters, blinds or blackout curtains, and you will immediately feel that it has become much cooler. This is especially true for rooms whose windows overlook the sunny side.

3. Turn on the hood in the kitchen and bathroom

If you are taking a hot bath or cooking in the kitchen, then do not forget to turn on the hoods in these rooms. They will help to get rid of steam and hot air, and at the same time from additional degrees.

4. Open all windows at night

In the evening, the temperature usually decreases somewhat, and in some places the difference between maximum and minimum temperatures can reach a dozen degrees. Do not miss the opportunity to take advantage of this and try to accumulate a cool night for the first half of the day. To do this, open all the windows in the house with the onset of evening. You can even arrange a kind of wind tunnel with the help of a draft. Just close the windows before sunrise, before the temperature starts to rise.

5. Humidify the indoor air

This can be done with a special humidifier or using a regular spray. Spray water every 40 minutes. Just don't overdo it, because too humid air can make it even worse.

6. Make long-term investments

Take some measures in advance. For example, plant your house with trees that will give shade, arrange special canopies over the windows, or at least buy modern heat—reflecting films - they create an effective heat shield for the room.

7. Buy an air conditioner

If the heat in your area is a constant phenomenon, then air conditioning is the simplest and most effective solution. The Lifehacker has instructions on how to choose an air conditioner, and a selection of 10 mobile devices that are suitable if you live in a rented apartment or just don't want to drill the walls.

How to cool yourself

1. Drink cold and wear light clothes

Our ancestors lived for thousands of years without any air conditioners and developed during this time many ways to survive in hot weather. Just start cooling your body, not the room around you. Cold drinks, light and loose clothing, water-soaked bandages on the head and wrists are used.

2. Do not eat heavy food

On especially hot days, it is better not to overeat and choose light food so that the body does not have to hard digest what it eats and produce additional energy.

3. Take a cool shower

A long cool shower or bath will help reduce the central body temperature. In the process, you will also get rid of sweat and fat accumulated during the day, and this will allow the skin to breathe better.

4. Sleep without clothes

This makes it easier for the body to cool down. If you can't sleep without everything, choose things made of one hundred percent cotton. This fabric allows the skin to breathe and removes moisture from it.
