Warmer days are nearing, so here are some tips that may help you to get through this hot season.
With the days getting warmer and warmer, it's important to adopt measures to help cope with the insane weather.
Not to worry, we've come up with a few tips that might do the trick.
Carry a bottle of water around with you
Since our bodies are meant to function best within a certain range of temperatures, it needs to cool off if it gets too warm. Therefore it is necessary to carry a bottle of water around everywhere you go.
Drink coconut water
Aside from the many health benefits that it provides, coconut water is proven to be useful in rehydrating the body by replacing the water and minerals lost.
Take more fruits
Fruits contain water and fibre which not only helps with rehydration, they also taste good. So grab yourself an apple before you start knocking on the doctor's door!
Intake of spicy food increases our body temperature which is not helpful for this hot season. Every effort should be made to keep your body temperature low which means, ditch the chilli padi!
Increase indoor activities
Indoor activities such as board games can also help in family bonding. Alternatively, there are indoor swimming pools or even the movies, if you're not the stay-at-home type!
As everyone is different, it is important to get a sunblock where the SPF matches your body's tolerance in the hot weather. For more information on SPF levels, click here.
