During the dog days of summer, when you have to do something physically taxing in a  location that is not air-conditioned, chew a chunk of honeycomb (available at health-food stores). You can chew it like chewing gum. (It’s also OK if you swallow some.) The honeycomb actually causes a drop in body temperature, keeping you from feeling the heat. 

Caution: If you have asthma or a known or suspected sensitivity to bee products, do not chew honeycomb.
