Hi, lightninstrike, there are many methods for you which I think is useful. 1. set up a aircondition. 2. sit beside a fan. 3. have a tip to a cool place. 4. have more cold drinks, especially ice cream. I hope that's useful. and I like the tip 4 most!

I want to say that I like summer season. I always don't go anywhere but stay at home. I don't wish my skin to be blacked.at that time,The air onditioner is my favorite. I think this is the best way to fight against heat. Oh, I have another idea, don't think about how hot it is.You fancy being a place where is very comfortable air,you also can do something to transfer your attention. Come on, Don't think too much about this all the time.The autumn will coming.....

Excessive heat have the tendency to make one weak and tired. So I take this drink 'Rush', everyday that makes me feel always on the go thoughout the way. It also replenishes right away the liquid that our body needs and losses due to excessive heat.

Oh this is a tough one. I hate the hot weather and we had a particularly hot extended summer here in Melbourne, Australia. Finally it's cooled down - sunny days and cool nights. If it's hot I always have the fan going - ceiling fans in the bedrooms are the best! We have air conditioning units too - but ceiling fans in the bedroom are even better. But I LOVE my air con. I suggest you get a empty spray bottle and fill it with water. Spray yourself while sitting in front of a fan. Bliss. Hope it cools down for you soon!

Well i can tell you that we are in israel are suffering for the last two weeks from heat waves in the weather. We do hope that it is going to end soon, because it is too hot and we can not really focus on anything important. The only thing that you can really do is drink alote of water and be in the air condition most of the time. If you are a person that are doing sports, do that only at night time.

Hi, well what I would recommend as I used to live in an extrmely hot place and it was very humid and the best thing is to run a bath so that you can go in there and also to make sure that you have plenty of ice on hand so that when you have a drink that it is nice and cool for you, and do not forget to drink plenty of water so that you do not dehydtate.

My favorite way to beat the heat is to go swimming. If that isnt an option I take a cool shower and sit in front of the fan. I dont use the oven when it's really hot out either since that makes the house so hot. I sip cold water or other beverages,and that seems to help. I also pray for snow.

Believe it or not, try drinking something warm. It tricks the system and water is absorbed by the body quicker. Warm, not hot....
