1. Reserve the silky, satin sheets for some other night and bring out the old, reliable lightweight cotton linens. They’re breathable and help promote ventilation. And for nights like this, it’s better to sleep au natural with no cuddling. Sorry!2. Hot air rises so point the electric fan up and towards the window so that it pushes the air out.3. Conversely, you can point the electric fan towards the ground to help circulate cooler air. To make the most of the situation, place a shallow pan in front of the electric fan and put frozen water bottles in it. The fan will pick up the cooler air as the ice melts and helps create a refreshing mist. Later on in the night, you can also keep yourself hydrated by drinking the melted ice water from the bottles.4. Since hot air rises, it might be a good idea to bring your sleeping area as close to the ground. Instead of your thick, heavy foam mattresses that retain heat, opt for bamboo mats. For those with marble floors, find greater comfort just laying on the cool marble.5. Keep cool from all angles by setting up a temporary hammock.
