- Create a DIY air conditioner
Its an old technique; positioning a shallow tub or bowl filled with ice in front of a portable fan allows the temperature to cool down. The breeze picks up cold water from the surface of the ice as it melts, and creates a cooling mist.
- Sleep alone and hog the bed.

- Use heat-resistant window shades.
By hanging tightly woven screens or bamboo shades outside the window, you can block out 60 to 80 percent of the sun’s heat.
- Dress for the summer.
Summer clothes should be chosen very carefully, We should avoid the dark coloured clothes for instant black, brown, grey. Wear loose-fitting, light-coloured cotton clothing that will go a long way toward keeping you cool. Organic cotton shorts and tank tops are some of the summer clothes.
- Hang a wet sheet.
