There are 4 predominant seasons in India which include: Summer, Monsoon, Winter, and Spring. The transition from one season to another is constant, and every season has its pros and cons.
As weather and seasons change, our tendency to fall sick also goes up.
We must take precautions and make sure we create a healthy lifestyle to avoid falling ill. Some of those tips include:
1. Keep Yourself Hydrated: A natural way of staying hydrated is ample intake of fluids, fruits, and vegetables that have high water content — oranges, watermelon, tomatoes, etc.
Eating these foods and taking enough fluids (3-4 liters/day) helps balance the core body temperature and keeps disease at bay.
2. Gear up for summer: Gradually start wearing summer clothes. Wear light and breathable fabrics which is an effective way to beat the heat. Naturally available fabrics such as cotton, silk, and linen are much better than synthetic fabrics.
3. Ensure Good sleep: While air conditioners have reduced the discomfort significantly, sleep patterns can still take a hit in hot, humid weather. Make sure you get 7-8 hours of undisturbed sleep to avoid lethargy.
4. Move your body!: It’s easy to get frustrated this time of year as we transition from the quiet and stillness of winter to the upward energy of the spring. Having an active lifestyle helps us to integrate the shift in energy and “go with the flow”. Sunlight is the best source of Vitamin D, use this season as the best opportunity to exercise outdoors in the morning.
5. Eat Healthily: Spring is an ideal time to look after your digestive system and strengthen the organs of elimination— especially the liver. Sour foods such as cranberries, citrus, berries, etc. are good for the liver. There are many foods such as green tea, coffee, garlic, grapes, prickly pear, etc. that wakes up the liver.
