    Try watering in large greenhouses for an hour, when you come out it feels quite cool.

    Get in the shower, get wet, don't towel off, stand in front of a fan (If there are no fans just use someone who likes you a bit )

    I'm just about to do that very thing myself!

    We have aircon, popping your feet in a bowl of cold water keeps you quite cool.

    I'm doing Christmas in an attempt to distract me from the heat.

    Heat never used to bother me and I lived in some pretty hot places but now I can't even cope with a British summer hot spell. I'm in pain and my ankles are resembling puffy cushions, soaking them in ice water has helped a bit.

    So I've withdrawn hermit like into my home, drawn the curtains to keep the sun's glare out, fans are on and I've had Christmas films or music on while I make Christmas cards, I don't think my brain is entirely fooled but at least I'm not feeling grumpy due to the heat.

    During that year when the temperature rose to 40C, I used to fill the bath with cold water, and every chance I got, I'd go and lie in it for a couple of minutes, until I felt cool, and then drip-dried.

    Also, keeping your (clean) underwear and even clothes in the freezer was a nice, if short lived, relief from the warm air.

    Also, going to supermarkets was great, especially by the chiller cabinets. I would spend ages in there.
    Best to put some clothes on first, though.

    Someone on another thread soaks a tea-towel, wrings it out, and drapes it over her head.
    That's sensible, as, if your head is cool, the rest of you follows.

    Don't go out with it still on, though.

    Some really good suggestions on that thread. I like the cold water bottles for guinea pigs.

    Some people are never happy.
    I'll bet around New Year when it was snowing outside, you were wishing it was Summer so you could go somewhere hot on holiday.

    Open your windows and get a draught blowing through, and/or use a fan. I think the forecast says it will cool off a bit later in the week.

    You should do like the nomads in the desert do and wear more layers.
    Their thinking is that the heat can't penetrate through to the body so they stay cooler the more clothes that they wear.

    Alternately, wear wristbands soaked in cold salt water.
