While it may sound counter-intuitive, drinking room temperature water or warm water will actually cool you faster than drinking ice-cold water. What happens is that when your stomach and other internal organs perceive the warmth coming in, your system activates the cooling process. You literally cool from the inside out. Desert civilizations have practiced this for thousands of years. Sure it may not be refreshing at first, but after a few minutes you will be a lot cooler.

5. Stay in One Place

Ironically, developing a fever or low grade cold is quite common during the hottest days of the year, especially during summer holiday festivities. One of the chief causes is the tendency to move from inside an air-conditioned building to outside in the extreme heat too quickly and too often. This constant back and forth makes it difficult for your system to know what it is supposed to do which then leads to an inflammatory response in the form of a cold or fever. If you have to move in and out of doors during your celebration, try to stay in one place for a few minutes before moving either inside or outside. This will allow your system to adapt and re-balance that way you won’t be suffering from the post-party blues.
