5 Tips to Stay Healthy during Summer

by True Elements 05 Apr 2024

We are all experiencing the impact of rising temperatures during the Summer season. It is important to understand our eating patterns and how it leads to a drop in appetite during the season. India is blessed with nutritionally rich seasonal fruits and vegetables. These play a crucial role in staying healthy and should be part of our summer diets. The first thing we hear during summer is Dehydration. The human body is 60% water, and proper hydration is essential for overall health. Even a per cent drop in this hydration can upset the electrolyte balance. Dehydration leads to skin headaches, rapid heartbeat, confusion, muscle cramping, loss of appetite and even complete blackouts. 

Let’s deep dive into Five Simple Healthy Tips to Follow this Summer Season and Beat the Heat.

Eat your water

Watermelon is about 91% water and is a summertime staple that’s cool and hydrating. It helps with hydration, digestion, detoxification and curbs your sugar cravings. Eating summer fruits throughout the season will give you plenty of vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin K, manganese, potassium and more, so make sure to add these sweet foods to your daily diet. Cucumber is 95% water and is super hydrating. This vegetable detoxes your body and also keeps your skin healthy and beautiful. It can be added to a salad or as a mid-meal snack, or simply juiced. Even if your water intake is low, the water content of these can be cooling for your body
