Here are some easy natural ways that will help you to stay cool when it’s hot outside.

Consume cool foods – There are several foods that help to regulate the body temperature and keep it cool. Foods like mushroom, lemon, lettuce, cucumber, mint. Spicy food will cause excess sweat that further results in cooling down the temperature.

Drink sufficiently – Always keep a water bottle with yourself. Drink adequate water, stay hydrated. Aim for 3 liters, then only you will end up having 2 liters. To replenish the lost electrolytes, you can have sports drinks. You can opt for natural juices; these are good alternatives to drinks. Mint juice is also a good option, it has numerous health benefits. But do avoid soft drinks and caffeinated drinks as they dehydrate you.

Swimming – Swimming is the best way to cool off. By this, water evaporates into the skin and makes us feel cool. If you are unable to go to the pool, you can take a bath, sprinkle water or wet your hair or soak your feet underwater.

Dress light – If you are at home, you can wear anything, shots or any pajama. If you are to go anywhere out, opt for loosely woven natural fabrics, such as linen or bright colors. This fabric is breathable, it allows the body to shed heat and the brighter colors will reflect heat from the sun.

Try to stay on the lowest floor – The top floor of any house is the hottest. Hence try to live on the lowest floor. As you go down, the degree of hotness decreases. Spend most of your time on the lowest floor of your home. There is a vast difference in the temperature on the top floor and lowest floor. You can chill, relax, and enjoy. 

Avoid going out in the sun at the peak hours that is from 11 am to 4 pm. If you have to go, try doing all your outdoor activities in the morning or in the evening.

Avoid doing outdoor exercises, prefer indoor exercises. Keep sipping water as and when required.
