Give your body a break from the heat

It may be cooler out in the garden in the shade than it is inside an overheated building. Move to a cooler part of the house, especially for sleeping. A damp cloth or a splash of water on the back of your neck is better at cooling you down than a fan. You could also have a cool bath or shower.
