Your Guide to Survive This Summer In Style
Adopt these habits in your daily lifestyle to beat the heat in style!
We are now in the middle of summer, and it seems truly difficult to tackle the scorching heat and humidity outside. Also, worse is that several heat-related health issues (like heat stroke, heat cramps, indigestion, and more) are currently on the rise across India. The condition is going to worsen in the coming days, so, you need to take extra care this season.
Following are some easy precautions that you should adopt to survive this summer.
Limit sun exposure
Stay indoors! Step out only when it’s an emergency. Never forget to wear sunglasses and apply sunscreen (of at least 55 SPF) on your skin before stepping out in the sun. Also, if possible, carry an umbrella in your hand.
It’s a no-brainer that you need to stay fully hydrated throughout the day in the summer. So, drink at least 4-5 liters of water every day. You can also drink other fluids like juices, buttermilk, lassi, etc.
Eat small & light meals
The severe heat during summer takes a toll on your digestive system. So, it is advised to eat small and light meals during the hot season. Avoid heavy meals (especially high protein foods) as they increase your body’s metabolic heat production.
Maintain food hygiene
Food poisoning is a common issue in summer. So, make sure to maintain proper food hygiene this season. Rinse all your fruits and vegetables with cold water and dry them with a clean cloth. Also, make sure to cover all dishes, keep your kitchen surface clean, and store leftover foods in a clean and airtight container.
Wear loose and light-colored clothes
Tight clothing restricts airflow, which may make you feel uncomfortable. So, make sure to always wear loose, breathable, and light-colored clothes in summer. Go for cotton or linen clothes as they will help keep your body cool and calm.
Also, avoid black clothes and prefer the white ones.
