I'm a big fan of doing pretty much the opposite of what everyone has said. I enjoy eating spicy foods and drinking hot tea. It makes you sweat, which
in turn cools you down. I'm a big, fat guy (350 pounds, 5' 11" tall), so I sweat regardless. It does work though.
Here's a semi-credible sourced article on the idea.
How Spicy Foods Can Cool You Down On A Hot Day
Of course, this is being posted from my air conditioned basement, which is at about 60 F and 40% humidity. It's for the chinchillas though! We have
over 250 of them, and they need to be kept cool and dry. The upstairs is drafty, and about 80 F with 60% humidity.
Which makes me think of another point. If the temperature in F and humidity are less than 150 when totaled together, it's generally comfortable.
