  1. Turn the air conditioning ON! (If you have one) If not a desk fan really does wonders.
  2. Wear deodorant and bring some in your bag. No one wants to sit next to the stinky body odour guy.
  3. Wear lightweight and light coloured clothes. Opt for cotton, linen and other natural fibres that help absorb moisture.
  4. Run your wrists under a cold tap for about 5 seconds, it will cool your veins and blood.
  5. DRINK WATER! It’s easy to forget about that h2o so remember to keep yourself hydrated.
  6. Avoid alcohol! It will dehydrate you.
  7. Plan ahead and bring your lunch, you want to stay away from the heat as much as possible. (Tip: Spicy food actually stimulates heat receptors in your mouth, enhancing circulation and cooling your body.
