Hi Andy, do you have swimming pools there, you can try taking a NIGHT SWIM for a change to cool you off, even in the afternoon you can take a swim too just make sure its a COVERED POOL so that there is no sunlight passing through. Another thing you can do is to EAT cold foods like... ICE CREAM & CRUSHED ICE with 12 toppingsm drink plenty of Cold liquid (DO NOT DRINK SOFTDRINKS) when you are tired and sweating. Its bad for the health. Do not eat SPICY bec it will only make you HOT. Hmmm im still thinking of ways to cool you down... maybe you can try putting ice cubes in a towel and when it starts to melt, spread it around your face and neck... that will cool you down... :)
