1. Choose cottons and linens
Have lots of cottons and linens in your wardrobe that can keep you cool and soak the sweat from your body. Avoid synthetic clothes. Also try to pick light colors. Also wear loose fitting clothes if possible for adding comfort.
2. Stay hydrated
Drink lots of water and fresh juices as they make up for the loss of water and potassium from the body due to sweat. Also carry water with you.
3. Avoid oily and processed food
During our summers, digestion becomes a little weak, it is advisable to avoid oily and processed food and choose fresh, light and high-fiber items which are easily digestible.
4. Take care of your skin
Whenever going outdoors, use a good sunscreen with a high SPF to keep your skin from getting harmed by the harsh rays of the sun. Apply sunscreen at least 15 – 20 minutes before moving outdoors. Also, if possible, during peak heat hours try to stay indoors.
5. Have a workout routine
Do not stop exercising because of a hot summer, keep yourself active and if you want to exercise outdoors, do it early in the morning or late in the evening.
6. Eat fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables
Summers bring with them a variety of fruits and vegetables like mangoes, watermelon, lychee, lime, cucumber and many more. They are healthy with lots of water and are also rich in vitamins and minerals. Add them to your daily diet to stay healthy.
7. Plan a vacation
Children have holidays during some part of the summer, plan a family vacation to a cooler place to beat the heat and have some family time. Even if you are single or do not have kids, having fun time with your loved ones is not a bad idea.
