No pool? No AC? Tips to beat the heat
UNDATED (WHDH) -- If you're trying to beat the heat without the help of a pool or air conditioner, there are a few alternatives you can try.
According the Reader’s Digest, these tips will help keep you cool.
• Try chrysanthemum tea
• Eat spicy food
• Chill your sheets
• DIY air-conditioning
Drinking a cup of chrysanthemum tea, whether it's hot or cold, will lower your body temperature.
Pair that with some spicy food, which will increase your blood circulation and make you sweat, which will cool you off.
You can also throw your sheets and pillowcases *in the freezer* for a few hours.
Freeze a few water bottles and put them in front of a floor or desk fan. The breeze will be much cooler.
