    Try putting ice cubes in your mouth and holding them under your tongue or holding an ice pack on the back of your neck. This will cool your spine and large nerve endings that will make the rest of your body lower in temperature.

    Live in a house or apartment? In a house, sleep in the basement, it is usually a lot cooler.
    When it gets really hot I take cold showers. After the first moment's shock, it feels great and you feel cooler for a long time after.
    Avoid nicotine, it reduces your resistance to heat.
    Eat very light, and avoid sugar and carbs, they burn hot for some reason. Eat small meals of protein and fat. Seriously, it helps.

    I'd suggest buying a lot of fans. We have two in our bedroom to try and cut down using the air conditioner. It's helpful but it won't keep you as cool as I'm sure you want to be.
