Summers bring along with it the scorching heat, sweating and a host of several other heat-related issues. With the change in season, the human body naturally needs a change in diet and lifestyle depending on the season. Let us try to Beat the Heat this summer with the following tips:
The right diet:
Switch to fresh & light meals regularly instead of heavy & stale junk food which tends to increase the heat in your body. Add on fruits & vegetables in your diet which are high in water content.
- Stay Hydrated:
Keep yourself well hydrated by drinking 2-3 liters of water daily. Make sure to carry a water bottle while traveling.
- Workout schedule:
Exercise can be restricted to the coolest hours of the day (early morning and evening) to avoid exhaustion.
- Get adequate sleep:
Limit your exposure to lights, and keep the space well ventilated to cool the room which may improve sleep quality.
- Eye care:
Wear protective eyewear when outdoors that can block the brightness and protect your eyes from the harmful ultraviolet rays.
Applying sunscreen will help protect your skin from the harmful effects of UV rays.
- Wear the right clothes:
Wearing light-colored clothes, preferably cotton and loose-fitting will help in keeping the body cool.
- Avoid alcohol & caffeine:
Avoid aerated drinks, alcohol & caffeine which can dehydrate the body quickly. Substituting the same with water or flavored water can help in keeping the body hydrated.
