Hello Lazy Ladies!
So, the summers are finally here and it’s already making us go crazy. Ice cubes…. drink coolers…. skin tans…..mosquitoes…. Phew! So if you are too lazy to sweat it out in this already sweaty weather, stop sweating! Learn these wacky summer hacks and beat the heat 🙂
Avoid Friends Who Don’t Have Air-Conditioners
Don’t want to step into that furnace your friend calls a house? Don’t!! Temporarily avoid all your friends who don’t have AC installed in their humble abodes. This is spring cleaning at its best! Also, the best way not to be guilt tripped into a miserably hot get together. Next time, a friend calls u to his/her place, ask very politely if they have good cooling arrangements at their spots. If not…well then….you can always ping – “Later, losers.”
Eat Only Ice-creams For the Rest of Your Summer
Yes, ONLY ice-creams, ice candies, frozen yoghurts, sorbets, snow cones, gelato, slushes….. Salivating already? Imagine the sheer variety you will come across! Also, we present to you…. the all new ICECREAM MENU!!
Use Portable Fans
How many times have you felt that you are not getting enough air or enough cooling? You don’t need to rush to the front of the air cooler or position yourself right below the fan to get airy.
And you didn’t think those handheld fans are used by anybody else other than “Geishas”..did you?
Thanks to INNOVATION… Now you can have a portable fan attached to your mobile phones. So the next time you feel the heat, don’t go to the pond, let the pond come to you! You can buy these online here:
Now welcome the breeze …..

Use Dark Curtains
The best way to deal with the hot sun entering your house is to put DARK BLACKOUT CURTAINS. Yes, just like a vampire’s liar!
Dark curtains cool down your house by blocking out the sun. The air-conditioning works better and more efficiently, thus saving on your energy bill. Draw the curtains before you leave home, so that they can block out the sun’s rays and your house will be few degrees less hot by the time you come home. You can buy one through clicking on the below options.
Sleep Like an Egyptian
Does it feel like you are sleeping on a hotbed? Worry not! Here’s what you can do to sleep comfortably:
- Fold your bed-sheets/bed-covers and put them in the fridge. Keep them for around 1-2 hours. Before sleeping, place the bed-sheets on the bed. The moisture will make you feel cooler and sleep comfortably.
- Wipe your face and hands with a damp towel
- Put some ice in a towel, wrap it up, tie the towel at both ends and suspend it in-front of the AC, cooler or a portable fan. The evaporated air from the ice-cubes will make the air cooler. Place a holder/container below the towel to hold the melting water from the ice-cubes.
- Wear cotton while sleeping
- Sleep like an Egyptian!
Want to visit a place where you can get air-conditioning without spending a fortune? Check out the nearest museums in your area. Museums house artifacts which require perfect air-conditioning. So, the next time you want to step out, instead of a shopping mall or a movie theater, go to a museum. Art and History lessons plus air-conditioning…for free!! 😀 😀
Buy a Pool for Yourself
Feeling too lazy to go to the community pool? Buy one for yourself! Order an inflatable and portable swimming pool for yourself and get soaked! But make sure you have ample space to house the pool! Order one here or here. Make sure you have an inclined surface to dive in or else you will make a splash like this –
Even if you didn’t feel like putting the above tips to use, i’m sure at least some of them made you smile 🙂 Enjoy the summer lazy bums… Adios!
