    As this is a communal interactive thread the idea is that people contribute.

    OK, here's another:
    Walk in wooded areas, not only is it cooler but you get a different "soundscape" - insects and birds. If you can get away from busy roads and noisy kids.

    What if you live in a central city with no wooded areas around? Isn't like I can walk out of my house and end up in a forest, but okay.

    I don't mean to be a grammar nazi but do you mean "throw" instead of "through"?

    Throwing cold water over yourself will not do it, you need to immerse yourself for several minutes. The body is a lump of fatty meat, you need to suck the heat out.

    If you happen to live in London go swim outside in the Hampstead ponds, the serpentine lido, or Oasis's rooftop lido. That's basically what I did all weekend :3 There are probably similar things (lidos/wild swimming locations) all over the country if you google it.

    Water's therrmal conductivity is 24 times that of air, so it will cool you 24 times as fast.

    A friend wgho worked outside in Australia said they would wear a towel of cold water on their head.

    The opposite is falling into icy water in winter - you need to get out fast.

    Other benefits of a cold bath

    1) They help you treat depression Cold water baths have shown to increase the release of depression-beating chemicals like nor-adrenaline and beta-endorphins making you feel fresh.


    2) Helps improve reproductive health in men.
    (this may not be a benefit for some men)
    Studies have shown that cold water showers stimulate the release of testosterone which helps in increasing your libido.


    3) Cold water baths have shown to stimulate the lymphatic and immune system, which helps in boosting the production of infection fighting cells thereby increasing your immunity.

    Good idea.
    (choose a window that is letting in air)

    also, water in pipes may be warm so allow to run a bit
