Make a “cold compress.” Fill a cotton sock with uncooked rice, tie the sock and freeze it. Then slide it between the sheets at bedtime. Rice retains cold for a long period because it’s dense and starchy.

Drink water. To replace the moisture that you lose as you perspire, be sure to drink. As you lose water to dehydration, your body temperature rises, so replacing fluids is essential to keeping cool. Avoid beverages that contain alcohol, caffeine, or lots of sugar, which are dehydrating. Also, opt for hydrating foods. Try a smoothie for lunch, and add more fruits and vegetables to all your meals. Watermelon has a particularly high water content!
