Summers are for chilling and drinking cool drinks while remembering our childhood and summer vacation days. But in recent years, global warming and pollution have combined to give India the harshest summers ever. In the past few years the temperature has risen making it unbearable to even step out, as the sun is right on top of our heads. Here are a few tips to beat the summer heat which will not only keep you fresh but also healthy.
Avoid large meals: During summers we should avoid large meals that are rich in proteins because that might increase the metabolic heat and warm up the body faster. Instead try shakes that are rich in proteins with a proper dietary meal to give you the energy that you need throughout the day.
Store water in a thermos bottle: Yes, you read that right! Storing water in thermos while going out or travelling will keep the water cool and fresh. By doing this you can drink ice cold water anywhere, anytime.
Add mint to everything: Mints are supposed to be natural coolers! Adding mint flavour to water or chewing some mint leaves after meals will keep you refreshed. This also helps in creating an illusion to make you feel cool and icy even when your surroundings are boiling hot.
Drink Enough Water: One of the most important things one should follow is to drink water! During summers you sweat a lot which is why you need to replenish your body’s water. Dehydration is a very serious problem that causes weakness, and even makes you nauseous. Hence, to avoid such circumstances drink enough water. It's no doubt that sometimes people do forget to drink water, some even set reminders to drink water which is fine but how do we naturally drink water without setting reminders. One such brand known as Beyond Water has come up with a very cool concept. They believe that adding taste through essential vitamin drops in water will not only increase your water intake but also make sure that you get enough vitamins and electrolytes to keep you energised even in hot conditions.
How Does it Work?
Many times people consume water and then immediately after 30 minutes go to the washroom. This shows that the water that you're drinking is not getting absorbed by your body. Hence, Beyond Water has come up with 4 Natural Flavours namely Mango Peach, Lemon Mint, Lemon Iced Tea and Zesty Orange that not only add taste to your water but also makes it healthy to drink as they contain essential vitamins and electrolytes. Beyond water uses Natural Colours to add that vibrant feeling. Mango Peach gets its lovely sunny yellow from natural turmeric extracts, also known as ghar ki haldi in Hindi. Lemon Iced Tea’s earthy brown color comes from the natural color released from the cold brewing of tea leaves. Lemon Mint is as clear as a bright sunny day just like the age-old nimbu pani we all love. Zesty Orange gets its vibrant color from dried natural carrots that were turned into fine powder and mixed with natural oils from the orange. They also use Natural techniques such as oil distillation and cold pressing to get that natural flavour. They use safe and natural alternatives such as stevia and electrolytes to keep you energized and hydrated throughout the day. These refreshingly awesome, delicious, fabulous drops of happiness that transform water into an energizing drink is surely going to be your go to drink!
