Simple hacks to have delightful Summer!

Keep yourself hydrated

It is the first and the foremost thing. As in summer we sweat extensively, which leads to fluid loss in the body. Keeping yourself  hydrated adequately is a good way to cope up with this loss. It is the easiest way to survive the summer heat. Along with water you can have buttermilk, coconut water and other hydrating fruits. Hence, drink adequate amount of liquid.

Keep meals lighter

Try to have light meals as heavy meals make your body work hard to digest it. As a result of this the core temperature of the body increases and you feel lethargic, sweaty and uncomfortable. Shun away from too much salty and processed foods like ice-cream. I know here I am sounding ruthless, but it’s true that for a time being it soothes you but later on it makes you feel hotter. If you are fond of ice-cream, then it will be a better option to prepare it in your kitchen.

If you eat carelessly or eat junk food from outside, the  microbes attack your digestive tract. It causes vomiting, abdominal pain and diarrhea. It’s important to maintain hygiene in the kitchen and consume fresh and well cooked food. Watermelon, mango and cucumber are healthier replacements.

Watermelon is the perfect option to quench the thirst during scorching summer heat. As watermelon is packed with nutrients like vitamin A, C, potassium, magnesium, antioxidants and high in water content (comprises 92% water).

Cucumber is also low in calories and high in water. It is composed of almost 96% water, along with nutrients like vitamin A and C, small amounts of vitamin K, potassium, magnesium and manganese.

Mango is exceptionally a summer fruit. As it beats the heat stroke and cools you down promptly and revitalizes you.
