If the heat is coming and you think you can't take it, don't overdo it with the air conditioner. You can cool down naturally as we've always done. Here you have a few simple tips for you to put into practice.

At the end of the day, common sense is one of the best alternatives to air conditioning. Regulating our body temperature is easier than you think, and we can do it naturally.

Running water through the back of our necks, the inside of our elbows, our armpits, our groins... is the best way to cool down.

In short: look for sustainable ways to stay refreshed, without creating more heat.
