recommended tips include the following top ten tips:-

1. wearing cotton clothes
2. put bedsheets in the freezer and use them just before sleeping
3. use a hot water bottle as an ice pack in the summer
4. point box fans out the window so hot air is pushed out and adjust the settings of ceiling fans so they turn anti clockwise (I didn’t know ceiling fans could turn anti clockwise!)
5. dampen a towel and use it as a blanket – Egyptian method
6. wear loose cotton nightshirts or top/underwear
7. use a shallow box/pan with ice in front of the fan to create a cool water mist
8. use a fan placed opposite a window to create a cross breeze between the air coming through the window and the cool breeze created by the fan
9.place ice packs or cold compresses against your pulses such as your wrist, neck, elbows, groin, ankles and behind the knees
10. use high tech pads that stay constantly cool
