Hot Winds

Summer has arrived in India. The temperature soars upto 43 degrees celcius in most part of India.
I take the following steps to beat the heat.
  1. Hygiene - During initial summer beginning, bacteria and fungi grow at a faster rate than the immunity of humans. Therefore, one needs to be careful and avoid drinking water from dubious sources. One must avoid outside food too. This is because water and food may have stronger bacteria and our immunity may be not that strong. The initial days are first 10 days. Currently, the initial period is over. Now you can have filtered water. You can also eat food outside.
  2. Keeping it cool - Crop your hair if you are a man. You may apply amla oil if you are a woman. Dabur Amla hair oil has thick oil base. So apply only a little. Oil bath also helps in keeping body cool.
  3. Keep pores clean - Scrub your body with loofah after applying soap. This will take out oil and dirt from pores.
  4. Cap and goggles - Wear a thin cap on your head and wear goggles while going out.
  5. Sleeping on floor - Try to get a nap in the afternoons on holiday on the floor without even a bedsheet or mattress. Just the floor and you. Switch on the fan. No AC or cooler. Try to get an hour or two of nap. Your body will get relaxed and you will also cool down.
  6. Cleanliness - When taking bath clean the feet completely with loofah and soap. The palm of the feet. The fingers of feet etc. This will energise you.
  7. Chywanprash - Chyawanprash can be taken if you are worried of getting infection due to water or food.
Follow these steps and you will be able to beat the heat better.
