5 Tips to Stay Healthy in Summer

As the spring ends, we are ready to welcome the hotter months of the year and the harsh effects of summer are well known to everyone. As the temperature starts to soar, more and more people experience discomforting conditions. Heat strokes, sunburn, and dehydration are some of the side effects of the scorching heat that summer has brings along. To stay healthy in summer it is important that you take enough precautions. In this blog, we will talk about the top 5 tips that will help you stay healthy this summer and protected from the blazing sun.


Drink lots of liquid

First and foremost, it is very important for you to stay hydrated this summer. Sweat is a very common outcome of any physical activity that you perform during hot days. To ensure that there is no loss of water from the body, it is important that you drink plenty of water and other liquids. Health expert’s advice drinking 8 glasses of water per day to stay fully hydrated. A hydrated body is more energetic and has a better ability to avoid exhaustion.

You must also avoid drinking unfiltered water as many of the summer diseases including diarrhea, typhoid, cholera, hepatitis A or E are water-borne diseases. In case you feel tired or have unusual bowel movements, you might be suffering from one of these diseases. It is recommended to visit a medical professional and get examined ASAP.

Take care of your diet

It is very important to eat healthy in summer. Thanks to the seasonal fruits and vegetables you get enough nutrients to serve to the body requirements and maintain health during the tougher months. Include salads, juices, yogurt, seasonal fruits and sprouts in your diet to get the required amount of nutrients and minerals.

Stay away from spicy food

We Indians love to eat spices. While hot and spicy food serves as a refuge in the winter months, it can wreak havoc on your stomach during the summer season. To deal with hot temperature the body gets heated up internally as well. The internal heat creates acidity which is often aggravated by spicy foods. Thus, it is advisable to eat less oily and spicy food to avoid gastrological problems.

Take proper rest

Summer days are long and tiring. As your routine may differ during summer, it is important that you take proper rest to avoid exhaustion. Having 7 to 9 hours of sleep is recommended by health experts. You must also eat light food in dinner to promote digestion and avoid any type of disturbance during sleep.

Protection from the sun

The sun can be harsh in summer, thus posing a plethora of dermatological consequences. To maintain healthy skin and avoid sunburns you must wear sunscreen whenever you step out of the house. Use medically recommended and high SPF sunscreen to maintain healthy skin. You can opt for SPF 30, SPF 40, SPF 50, SPF UVA/UVB sunscreen as per your skin type. Do not forget to consult a doctor in case you suffer from inflammation, irritation or any kind of skin discomfort that you suffer from sun exposure.

Being physically and mentally healthy is instrumental to our overall well-being. Medical professionals also advise doing light exercises and meditation for a healthy body and a calmer mind. Follow these steps to make sure you’re safe and healthy throughout the scorching summer months.
