Beat the Heat in Healthy Ways
Summer is here and so is the scorching sun! While staying indoors is the easiest way to escape the sun, keeping the air-conditioner switched on the whole day will take its toll on your monthly electric bill. But did you know that you can keep cool in ways that can boost your health as well?
Here are some quick and easy ways to stay cool and healthy during summer without breaking the bank:
1. Eat salads
Chilled food items like leafy greens or fruits sound much more appetizing to eat on a hot day. You also get to avoid that heavy, sluggish feeling that you get from downing a heavy, greasy meal. You can add food items like chicken or tuna chunks, shrimp, or hard boiled eggs to add more flavor and protein in your salad.
2. Steer clear of the sun
This might be stating the obvious, but should you need to go out for errands or chores like throwing the trash, it’s best to avoid the sun between 11AM to 2PM when the sun is at its hottest. During this time you are most likely to overheat and expose your skin the most to the most punishing effects of UV rays, which is the biggest cause of skin ageing.
3. Refrigerate your bedsheets and pillow cases
Better yet, put them in the freezer! Do this at least 30 minutes before naptime or bedtime and you’ll be fast asleep before you feel the heat. Sleep is the best way to rejuvenate, beat stress, and boost the immune system, so don’t take sleep for granted even during the active summer days.
4. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
Keeping your body hydrated is essential in regulating your body’s temperature. Of course, a cold, refreshing drink straight out of the refrigerator is best. Liven up your hydration habit by drinking a healthy, flavorful drink like B’lue flavored water to perk you up.
