The heat is most certainly taking over sooner than usual this year in Pakistan, it’s only April and what dreads us, even more, is that Ramadan would be hotter than any year this time in the middle of May. All around you, you may hear people say abhi itni garmi hai agay kya hoga? And you find yourself wondering just the same. In such garmi your least favorite task turns out to be hitting the gym. I mean, itni garmi upar se gym ki garmi? You then decide to just stay home and maybe do some squats one day and some lunges the other day.
So basically, if working out becomes an exhausting task for you in the hot weather, there are a couple of other things that you can at least bring to focus in order to keep your body fit and healthy.
Keep Your Detox In A Bottle
Preparing detox water for summers is a fun thing to do and you can sip in some real citrus flavor throughout the day, consequently, you are taking in an influx of anti-oxidants that help remove the toxins from your body all day long. All you need is a bottle of ice cold water, a few mint leaves and any citrus fruit (lemon being the best for summers). Leave it all in the bottle, refrigerate and take it along with you to work or college in the morning.
Add Green Tea To Your Routine
Okay we understand how taking a whole mug of green tea in the hot weather can be challenging for some people considering the different skin issues that might come with it, but a few sips really don’t matter and they do make a bit of difference to cleanse out your digestive track. Take maybe a ¼ cup of green tea or half a cup after dinner every day and walk around doing chores a bit.
Soups Are Not Just For Winter
Make soups a good part of your meals and you would be satisfied with the amount of healthy stuff entering your body which is full of nutrients. If you swap even one of your major everyday meals with soup, you’d be cutting off a huge deal on calories. And you won’t be feeling hungry after that either if you add mushrooms, carrots, prawns occasionally, broccoli, peas and so much more to it.
Stick To Fresh Juices
Looking for something extra refreshing, more healthy and fat free as well as low on fiber? Oh and did we forget, super duper yummy too? Fruit juices are there to save the day. Yes, we understand how tiring this must be for some people even though machines have made stuff easier regarding fruit juice extraction, but honestly the summers are the best time to stay hydrated with some fruity fun. This goes in a two-way direction since not only are you staying hydrated, you are also receiving so many nutrients. And if it’s still a lazy job for you, Nestle is always there for you lads, isn’t it? Choose that over soda and make a wise decision.
