Sometimes especially during noon and afternoon time, the temperature can get really hot and disturbing. Especially when the summer is coming. So what do you do during hot days? If I don't feel like enjoying the hotness, I would stay indoor with my air conditioner on and some cold drinks or ice creams. That should help me pass the day. On the other hand, A sunny and hot day may means time for sport, I would get my badminton racket and play with my brother outside of the house.

We usually stay inside watching tv with of course the a/c on. Or we'll go into the basement which is even cooler and turn the a/c on the main floor down so we conserve on power. Otherwise we do go outside swimming or get a sprinkler going but not until later in the day, high noon is too dangerous of a time with the intensity of the sun.

I wear light clothes and usually take a nap after lunch if it´s too hot as I feel drowsy. I don´t have air conditioner, but I don´t really need it. Our climate is not humid so there´s never a sticky hot sort of weather.

I'd stay downstairs since it's hotter upstairs or maybe chill in an air conditioned place or stay in the bathroom for hours since I don't have time for swimming for now.

Yeah summer is coming, it just seemed like it just left us. Funnily enough how that works, how time just rather flies rather quickly. More quickly than one could ever imagine to say the very least. Then again, there was not much of a winter. Not saying that is a bad thing, as the moderately comfortable temperatures were far better than the frigid insanity that I had dealt with in seasons past. If it gets really hot, the air conditioning goes on. Its just that simple I spent the first twenty years of my life suffering in the heat, which I’m sure has aged me about twenty more years other than that in some degree. If somehow the air conditioner does break down, let’s say, a nice ice cold bath would be a good way. A cool drink as well and a nice fan or two. Just staying out of the sun whenever possible would be the ultimate goal.

good day, what can i say, even it is not yet summer, the weather dictates it. as the heat and hot feeling really approaches so quick. wishing that i have an air conditioning unit so i can turn it on during mid-days. but, what to do, i don't have any so i am just using electric fans to give me at least a cool air. well, with that of your query, i used to stay at home during summer except when my friends or some family members invites me to go out for an outing like swimming.

Watch movies or my personal favorite, go swimming! A cold pool and lemonade is the perfect remedy to a hot day- and you get exercise!

in case of a hot day, I would not want to go out of my hostel. I would go take a cold bath for longer time and go back to my room with my body all wet and enjoy the fan. It would really cold me down for a while. You should try that too dude. After all one may fall sick because of the intense heat. Those who are not used to heat will suffer more.

fortunately, we dont get a lot of hot days but when its gets really hot here where i live, we go to the beach, hang out at my moms or hubby's parents as they have central air or go to the mall or the library. we dont have central air and fortunately, my work does so i am lucky there.

In the hot summer months I usually spend them in the water, either at the lake, the beach or my own backyard. If it's too hot then I spend them indoors sitting in the air conditioning.

Well, I go to places where it is cool, or I put on the air conditioner, but only if it is really hot. If it is under 95 degrees, I will not put the AC on.

Here it is still cold. But in summer it can be very hot. Even though, I don't want to stay at home to enjoy the air-conditioner in hot summer. I prefer to go out to have a swimming. I like to do some outdoor activities with my son. Since it will be good for him. I love China
