How to cool during summers?

In the warmer, longer, lazier days of summer, the living may not be easy.

Even adults tend to adopt a "school's out!" attitude in summer.

That's why this is a perfect time to improve your health in a fashion so seasonally laid back you'll barely notice the effort.

To get you started, here is a nice tip...

Give Your Diet a Berry Boost

If you do one thing this summer to improve your diet, have a cup of mixed fresh berries -- blackberries, blueberries, or strawberries -- every day.

They'll help you load up on antioxidants, which may help prevent damage to tissues and reduce the risks of age-related illnesses.

Blueberries and blackberries are especially antioxidant-rich.

A big bonus: Berries also tops in fiber, which helps keep cholesterol low and may even help prevent some cancers.

I hope you had berries today to help yourself this summer

Another major thing to do is stay hydrated. Carry water with you at all time.

The heat saps away body energy and dehydrates us leading to fatigue, dizziness and even fainting spells.

You can add some rock salt and jaggery to make it a natural energy drink too.

Eat cooling foods like cucumbers and carrots , fruits and veggies and the good old Indian buttermilk /chaas.

Ice creams are cold but they don't cool the body and in fact dehydrate us.
