Summer Tips to Stay Healthy By Dr.Gokhale

Summer brings with it the good old sun, but there are some unwelcome guests as well – sunstrokes, heatwaves, dehydration and weakness in the body. Although not everyone will face any or all of these symptoms, it is better to be safe than sorry. We present to you some health tips for summer, as suggested by Dr. Gokhale, the best heart and lung transplant surgeon in Hyderabad.

Lets know how to stay healthy in summer?

  • Staying hydrated is of the top most importance this summer.
  • Consume as much water as possible (at least 2 liters per day), and make sure you spread your water consumption evenly throughout the day.
  • Beginning from the time you wake up to the time you go to bed, water should become an integral part of your diet this summer.
  • One of the best health tips to stay healthy this summer is to begin exercising.
  • Summer is the season when you sweat the most, so why not sweat your fat and bad health away?
  • As there is a lot of daylight during the summer season, it is advisable to wake up early and go out for a jog, and exercise a bit. Remember to stay hydrated, though!

What is the best food to eat in summer?

The best diet plan for a healthy lifestyle is something that will always be debated, but thankfully, for the summer season, a diet plan that can be followed by everyone is already in place.

  • Watermelons and mangoes are the universal summer favourites, and need to be included in your diet for sure.  Watermelon is all water and it helps you stay hydrated while also letting you enjoy the delicious fruit flavour.
  • Apart from the multiple vitamins that cucumbers possess, they are rich in the most important elements, water and fiber needed for healthy digestion in summer.
  • Further dietary guidelines for good health recommend including foods like corn, tomatoes, raspberries and blueberries to your summer diet.

While we are on some health tips for summer, taking the doctor’s advice on healthy eating and drinking is useful, as the summer heat is very bad for your health.

What to avoid during the summer?

  • Avoid being exposed to the sun for long periods of time.
  • If absolutely necessary, wear adequate protective clothing that will reflect sunlight (light colors).
  • Minimize your time outdoors.
  • Avoid intake of junk food, street food, spicy food and dairy products.
