Dealing with the Mumbai heat

Summers are already here and temperatures are soaring high. It is important to think about the well-being of our body, mind and skin without losing the cool. Below are a few tips to help us bear and beat the scorching sun of Mumbai.

Pani pani re…bahut sara pani re.

Yes, we say it once again. Please drink lots of water, nimbu pani and chaas to keep your system hydrated and cool. No cola or aerated drink can help quench the thirst that arises in this sweltering weather. Always carry a bottle of water in your bag and send one with your husband and kids as well.

Chata bachata

Carrying an umbrella helps to stay covered. The heat doesn’t directly fall on us and saves our skin from direct sunburn. Using the right umbrella definitely is a savior. Try it!

Swasth raho, mast raho

We get some of the best fruits and vegetables in summers. Melons, mangoes, lemons, plum, guavas, cucumbers are some of the best summery foods that should mandatorily be a part of our diet. Loaded with goodness and high in water content, these fruits and vegetables help us stay cool, calm and healthy.

AC zindabad

We definitely can’t thank the inventors of Air Conditioners enough. But there is a right way to use the AC which will not burn a hole in your pockets. Keep the temperature of AC between 23 and 25 degrees and use the fan. A ceiling fan makes the room feel 10 degrees cooler along with the AC. Always draw the curtains or the blinds so that heat and sunlight do not enter the room. When operated correctly, the AC maintains the room and body temperature along with keeping your electricity bill in check.
