The sweltering summer heat has set in in most parts of India. It is officially the hottest April in the last 50 years, and northern, eastern, western and central parts of the country continue to sweat it out as the mercury crosses 40 Celsius.As citizen’s pray for an early monsoon, staying cool this summer is now more a necessity than just about comfort.So, to help you beat the blistering heat here are some easy-to-do suggestions:Eat coolDoctors recommend small light meals, that are high on green, leafy veggies instead of large, heavy non-vegetarian meals during the summer. This will not only give your digestive system a break and help beat the lethargy that usually follows a heavy meal, but will also leave place for water, juices and cooling fruit.Speaking of fruit, make sure you get in plenty of fresh fruit with high water content, for eg, watermelon and other melons, grapes, oranges, sweet lime etc.Deep-fried foods such as bhajjias, wafers, samosas and farsan are not a good idea since they tend to have a thermal effect on the body, as are caffeinated, carbonated drinks that tend to promote dehydration.Click NEXT to read on…How do you stay cool in the summer?

Now this doesn’t mean you rush out and buy yourself an AC car. Instead… Instead of walking, take the bus/train. Your destination might not be too far, but choosing not to walk will help avoid the direct heat of the sun, and prevent avoidable physical exhaustion. If you are travelling around the city, duck in to an air-conditioned mall or shop and cool off for a while if the heat gets too much to bear. Click NEXT to read on…How do you stay cool in the summer?

Carry a small spray bottle with water. Whenever the heat gets too much to take, just spritz your face, arms and neck. If you tend to perspire a lot, treat yourself to some coconut water, lemon juice or fresh fruit juices to keep your fluid intake up. For the exercise freaks out there, pick cooler times in the day to work out. Early morning and late evening would be best. Also, instead of pushing your physical limits, try to just maintain them. This will help prevent over-exertion through the day as you go about your daily activities. Click NEXT to read on…How do you stay cool in the summer?
