Earth is blessed with many seasons and each season has its own special features. The summer season might be a difficult time for many of us due to the heat and humidity but, this season can also be made enjoyable by taking care of some small things so that you can benefit from the care and precautions taken and make the most of your summer. So here are few tips to beat the summer heat and stay cool.
Wear loose, light-colored clothing- 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.
Accessories like hats and sunglasses are also recommended to protect your eyes against permanent damage caused by sun exposure.
Drink lots of water and fresh juices as they make up for the loss of water and electrolytes from the body due to sweat. Also carry water with you.
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.
Take care of your skin
Whenever going outdoors, use a good sunscreen 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.
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.
Summers bring with them a variety of fruits and vegetables like mangoes, watermelon, 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.
Switch off those Lights
Too many electric bulbs and lights in the room tend to heat up the temperature. So switch off as many lights as you can and use only the ones you require. Certain factors like concrete buildings, top floors, pollution, etc. can make the situation worse by trapping heat. Keep the curtains drawn if the harsh rays seep into the house.
