Ramadan is but a few days away and the summer will be at its very peak. This time, the summer is said to be worse than ever. With temperatures going up to 42 to 45 degrees in certain parts of the country, we need to be extra careful when it comes to self-care.
Here’s how to survive through the excessive heat of the summer
Get lots of water in your system
Staying hydrated is the key to surviving the summer but this can become tricky during Ramadan. While you can’t drink anything during the hottest hours of the day, you can pace the amount of drinking water that goes into your system. Get in a solid 6-8 cups as per any normal day.
With work and home, we spend most of our day indoors anyway but a lot of us find ourselves under the sweltering sun for one reason or another. Try and avoid theses instances as much as possible but if you can’t don’t shy away from looking for shade. Get sun screen cream or even an umbrella to block out the sun as much as possible.
Eat lots of water-based fruits
It’s the season for water melons during this Ramadan. And if you have trouble eating fruits, you can always have fruit juice then instead. Besides, there is always an ideal choice of green coconut to get day long energy. So don’t feel guilty when it comes to consuming fruits. The natural sugar will give you loads of energy and the water content will keep you refreshed.
Stay away from deep fried oily foods
Though it’s hard enough to avoid fried fruits, the truth is that having fried foods everyday for 30 days can never be good for your system. These oily foods will slow you down sucking all the energy during Ramadan which you will badly need.
Don’t Skip Sehri
It’s pretty much usual that some fasting people prefer a heavy dinner and like to skip Sehri. While it may be tempting to choose an extra hour of sleep over Sehri, skipping it increases the hours between meals and by the time you reach iftar, your body will have exhausted its resources. So, it’s the wise decision to take light dinner for the sake of heavy dinner meal to survive till iftar.
