There is nothing worse than working during the summer. Here at OMJ we have to endure our days with a view of the Thames and the sound of revellers in Borough Market and I have to say, it's not easy! All you want to do in this heat is take your clothes off, pour yourself a pink lemonade and BASK like a cooked chicken. Well, that's all I want to do although I'd add a swimming pool to the mix because I can't sunbathe for more than 2 minutes without getting into water!
Another thing which is extremely difficult to cope with during the summer months, is the sleeping situ. Oh yes, you know what I'm talking about. Coming into work all tired and groggy because you were too sweaty to sleep is NOT the one. As a result, I decided to search the Google for innovative ways to stay cool during summer nights without aircon and I found this brilliant article on the greatest '24 Tricks to Survive Hot Summer Nights (without AC)'. I had to share it because they actually have some decent ideas. Who would ever think to stick their sheets in the freezer before bed?
We've all been there—tossing and turning in bed, struggling because our sweat has us practically glued to the sheets. It. Is. Awful. There are few things worse than trying to catch some shut-eye (or even just relax!) in an incredibly hot, sticky room. But brutal summer temps are unavoidable for most of us at some point in the year. So how to cool down a room without AC? It's possible, we swear!
