The weather has been oppressively hot for the past few days and it looks like it's gong to continue for at least a few days.  I am one of those people that LOVE the summer, so I am not complaining by any means, however, I will say that sometimes, even I seek a little relief from the heat.

If you don't have air conditioning like me, (yes, we exist) here are some tips to get you through this stretch of weather:

  • Wear loose clothing.  Tight clothes are going to make you sweat even more and they aren't comfortable, so go for the cotton and wear loose things.
  • Take a cool shower.  Your temp will immediately go down a little once you get in to a cool shower.  It feels wonderful.
  • Put ice in a shallow pan and put it in front of a fan.  The cool air is amazingly similar to an air conditioner.
  • Sleep without anyone touching you.  I know it's great to snuggle, but not when it's this hot.
  • Consider sleeping in the basement.  We have a guest bedroom in the basement and the temperature difference is so much cooler.  You just have to deal with the spiders, but they usually leave you alone.  (eyoo!!)
