6. STAY AT HOME (WHILE THE SUN IS OUT)
When there was no air conditioning we knew much more about how to adapt our habits to the temperature. It’s simple:
During the day, the blinds, curtains and windows must be closed tightly. Let in the essential light you need for your tasks.
During the hours of sunshine, stay indoors or in conditioned places. If possible, take a good nap.
When it’s dark, open blinds, curtains and windows (if you think it’s cooler outside than inside, otherwise open at least to ventilate the house).
Take the opportunity to go for a walk at night. And if you have taken a nap and you are working at home, you can take advantage of a few hours to work.
7. IT CAN ALWAYS BE WORSE
In the Nordic countries they don’t stop taking saunas in the summer. As you know, the sauna ritual consists of locking yourself in a warm space that is 80-90°C hot and then taking a cold shower. If you are in good health, you can also do this in summer and it will help your body adapt to any temperature.
