Your fan might be circulating hot air inside the room so it’s best to let it face the window. Doing this allows air to circulate better as it blows hot air out of the room and aids the cool breeze from the outside into your space.
Wear loose cotton shirts and shorts during summer nights. Loose clothing helps keep you cool while sleeping.
Air conditioners can burn a hole through your pocket if used all summer long. An alternative would be to place a block of ice on a bowl in front of the fan to help keep your body temperature under control.

Aside from saving energy and money, turning the lights off also lowers the temperature inside the house. It will also help if you unplug other gadgets and small appliances.
Fill a clean and unused sock with rice, secure it, then place it inside the freezer for at least an hour. Use it as a cold compress that can help you feel refreshed before you doze off.
