No one likes to sit sweating in a lecture room when it’s scorching hot. But what can you do when varsity kicks off and duty calls? We’ve come up with 5 ways you can keep your cool during the blazing summer.
1. Do you even Fan?
One of the most fan-tastic inventions to help us beat the heat is the mini fan. Some are so small, they even fit in your pants pocket. Get yourself a battery operated mini fan, or a little USB fan which you can use to cool off during a lecture, while on a bus or shuttle, or just while you hang around on campus. They don’t make a lot of noise, so you don’t need to worry about disturbing anyone. Whoever invented these, thank you.
2. Grab that Window Seat
Even the hottest of breezes can be a relief – so make sure you run to the window seat if your lecture room has one (unless the sun is shining right onto that spot, then DON’T).
3. Let your Organs Breathe
Did you know your skin is your biggest organ? Yeah, so let that thing breathe. Wear loose and heat-friendly clothing! This calls for flip flops, tie tops, and airy shorts. Check out the latest MRP fashion range for some summery outfits – it’s friendly on the pocket too. Yep, it’s about beating the heat in style.
Remember, whether you’re a first-year fresher or going back for seconds – varsity life is about to get real. Think fresh pops of colour, cut-out accents and cute lace-up details. From Monday lectures to Friday hangouts, it’s all about hanging onto the summer spirit and keeping your cool on campus.
4. Rock a Bandana
They say we have eyebrows to keep the sweat from running into our eyes, but what about the rest of our face, and neck, and back, and cleavage? The struggle is real.
Go get yourself a funky bandana and tie it around your hairline. It will soak up the sweat and still make you look fresh and stylish. And make sure you stock up with a sweatband to wear on your wrist, or else you might have to deal with constant sweat-stache.
5. It’s Spraytime
If you don’t have a fan, then make sure you don’t throw away that empty Windowlene bottle. Fill that thing with water and keep it with you at all times. When you walk around on campus, spray some water onto your face and neck – it will cool you down for a little while, especially if there is a light breeze.
Keeping your cool is sometimes more than just about avoiding sweat stains and dehydration – it’s really, really hard to focus when it’s so hot. Try to find a coffee shop with air-conditioning to write your assignment, or try to work in the early mornings or evenings when it is a bit cooler. You’ve got this!
