Eat and drink carefully.
You probably do not think about what you are eating or drinking as seriously contributing to how hot you feel during the summer, but what you put in your body effects your temperature quite a bit. When you eat spicy foods or heavy meals, you tend to feel warmer. This is not just all in your head either. Certain spices have been shown to actually raise a person’s body temperature slightly. So, if you really want to stay cool, stick with light, cold-served meals. Salads, raw vegetables and chilled fish work well for cool summer meals. They also tend to be lightweight which can help you stay cool.
Water is essential for every aspect of life, and bodily temperature control is no exception. If you are dehydrated, your body cannot produce sweat as effectively. While this may seem like a good thing at first glance, no one really likes being sweaty after all, the inability to sweat effectively will quickly leave you roasting in the summer. Sweat is how your body gets rid of heat. When you are dehydrated, your body cannot rid itself of heat as effectively, so you feel too hot. In addition to helping you sweat, a glass of cold water can temporarily bring down your internal body temperature helping you cool off.
