When summer is at its peak, it can get painful for some people. If not taken care of properly, hot weather can cause fatigue, headache, and low energy levels. Here are few tips to beat the heat with few simple and easy tips:
The first and essential thing is to stay hydrated the whole day long. If you don’t drink sufficient water in a day, you may get dehydrated and feel tired. So, it is essential to keep up with the body’s water requirement on an everyday basis.
How much water one should drink depends from person to person! So, it will not be fair to define specific liters of intake for everyone.
Keep sipping water throughout the day whenever you feel thirsty, and check the color of your urine. When urine turns pale yellow or transparent, it means you are adequately hydrated and don’t need to sip extra water if you are not thirsty at all.
You can also drink coconut water, seasonal fruit juice, or barley water to hydrate and keep yourself energetic.
During summer, it is natural to feel less hunger. In such a situation, you can support your digestion by eating meals in moderation. It means you should eat your meals less of your appetite. Eating your food in moderation keeps your digestion on track, provides you energy and wellbeing. So, eat less and avoid overeating.
3. Short Nap
Ayurveda suggests taking a short nap in the daytime during summer. It helps to give you a quick dose of energy in the day. So, you can take a rest for 10 to 20 minutes and regain your energy levels. But, do not sleep just after having your meal.
As per Ayurveda, avoid drinking alcohol in the summer. It deteriorates the tissues inside the body and can make you feel more dehydrated and exhausted. So, to prevent that stay away from alcohol during hot weather.
