In summers, a bath in cool water make your whole day cool and refresh.  This is the first thing that you do in the morning. So begin your day with a bath in cold water.

So emphasize activities that have a cooling influence, both emotionally and physically. Go out for vacations, this might bring a change in your routine lifestyle; enjoy the time with your family at a hill station. Try to manage all your official work at office only, and give a quality time to your family and friends. A walk in the moonlight would also be soothing to your mind.


Drink healthy and cool beverages

We usually drink Coke or Pepsi to cool down in summer. But, these beverages contain carbonate which is unhealthy for you. It will not only impair your digestion but also harm your immunity system. It is better to have fresh fruit juice and nectars, blended and stored at room temperature, and then drink. The fruit juices that are recommended in summers are Grape juice, water melon shakes, mango shake, eat melons, berries, and lassi, bhel sharbat, aam panna and saatu are also considered as the healthy beverages in summers.

And in vegetables, eat broccoli, bottle guard, karela, and other green vegetables. Add cucumber in your salads. Try to avoid spicy and sour foods in summer. If you want to use spices then have some cooling one like mint, fennel, anise and cardamom.

It is very essential to do a regular exercise. You can add a spice in your practice by adding new exercise or can say change according to the season. Like, swimming is a healthy and wonderful exercise for summers as it is not only helps you to strengthening body muscles but also it is a cooling and soothing for body too. Morning walks in the park and evening round in garden are another relaxing method for the body. A lot of people who do yoga love Bikrams hot yoga, but I would encourage switching to a cooler type during the heat of summer.  Specific yoga postures and breathing exercises are more cooling than others.


Protect yourself from the Sun

Most importantly, you should protect yourself from the sun. To protect yourself from sunburns use a good sunscreen. Use cucumber water to hydrate the skin and experience a cooling effect when you face when you face the scorching heat of summer. Cover yourself when you go out in the sun. Take yourself an umbrella and wear sunglasses to protect your eyes from sun rays. Always keep glucose or a water bottle along with you as dehydration might be found in you in summers.
