1. Stay hydrated
You tend to sweat more during the summers. If you don’t eat well and drink plenty of water, you are also likely to get tired easily. It is recommended that you drink at least 8 to 10 glasses of water every day.
Once a day, you can also treat yourself to healthy drinks like fresh lime water, buttermilk, fresh coconut water or green tea.
As much as possible, avoid canned juice or soda based drinks. They contain a lot of chemicals and preservatives which are not very good for your health.
2. Eat natural foods
The summer season brings with it a lot of juicy fruits and veggies. You should include seasonal fruits and vegetables in your diet. Some fruits and vegetables that keep you healthy and hydrated during the summers are watermelon, cucumber, eggplant and tomatoes.
If possible, avoid deep fried and extra spicy foods. It takes longer to digest and isn’t healthy.
3. Protect yourself from the harsh sun
The sunrays are extra harsh during the summer. When stepping out, always apply sunscreen. Ideally, you should also wear a hat and sunglasses to protect your skin and eyes from the harmful UV rays.
While the early morning sun rays are good for your health, direct exposure to sunlight during the day is harmful.
4. Exercise regularly
Exercising regularly keeps your heart strong and healthy. Summers are a great time to start a new exercise regime or take up a new activity. It is also the perfect time to indulge in outdoor activities like swimming, tennis, trekking, hiking or cycling.
You should also go for regular morning or evening walks during this season. It might be tempting to stay indoors in you air-conditioned room all day. But stepping out and staying active is very important to stay healthy.
5. Take some time off
All the heat and the soaring temperature can make you tired and cranky. To keep your mind and body refreshed, it is important that you take some time off for yourself. Summer is the perfect time to take a vacation. It is also the time when schools have summer vacations.
Head to a place that is away from the chaos of the city. Treat yourself to a soothing vacation at a place close to nature. If you are a health freak, sign up for a wellness vacation. Pamper yourself to a refreshing wellness session and get back to life, relaxed and rejuvenated.
