This morning as I was walking pass a clinic to get some breakfast from a kopitiam next to it when I saw a mother holding her two children by the hand, leading them into the clinic entrance glass door. The children looked flushed, and were sniffling – so I thought, these children must be sick. I peered into the glass door, and I saw a 2-3 children in the clinic, assuming that they are sick as well. I made a conclusion, probably it’s the heat and the unpredictable weather.
The hot weather is really something you can’t avoid. You can’t tell the sun to stop radiating and you can’t rearrange the clouds to shade the Earth from the scorching heat, right? Here’s what you need to do to keep you and your family cool and healthy during this crazy hot weather in Malaysia! Here are the top 5 ways to keep you and your family healthy!
No. 1 – always keep you and your family hydrated. Drink plenty of water throughout the day, and not only when you feel thirsty. Because your body lose water through excessive sweating, you’d end up dehydrated and parched like a dried prune. Occasionally, you can have a glass of cool peppermint tea. This is a great way to make your insides feel cool and tingly, thanks to the menthol and a substance in the plant that works the opposite way capsaicin does, instead tricking your body into feeling cold. Plus, you can spray mint tea onto your skin to provide both evaporative and mentholated cooling, so this beverage pulls double duty.
Secondly, another way to keep yourself hydrated and avoid overheating in this terrible heat is to add water-rich food like some of these seasonal produce – watermelon, cantaloupe, and cucumbers. These produce contains loads water, furthermore, they’re easy to digest and don’t need to be cooked, and taste better than water, am I right? LOL. But don’t skimp on water! Drink water and eat these mouthwatering water-rich fruits to keep your body hydrated and healthy. Other than peppermint tea, coconut water is used for its cooling properties. In addition to that, it’s also a great source of the electrolytes you lose through sweating, making it a relatively low-calorie, low-sugar substitute for sports drinks.
Third, avoid heavy meals and opt for frequent small meals instead. This is because digesting a large, heavy meal requires more energy than digesting a small one. That is why, it is advisable to eat small meals throughout the day instead of a three traditional meals to keep your body from doing extra work and heating up in the process.
Fourth, up your vitamin C intake. Being cooler in this dreadful hot weather could be as simple as popping a pill into your mouth! Vitamin C is found to increase the tolerance for heat by delaying sweat gland fatigue, which reduces the occurrence of heat exhaustion and prickly heat rash. Furthermore, vitamin C also keeps your body temperature from rising during heat exposure with a dose as small as 250 milligrams.
If you are still in search of a great Vitamin C supplement, Mommy J will recommend you the Shaklee Sustained Release Vita C Plus or the Shaklee Chewable C Plus for your kids!
Fifth, during days like this – a minute its hot, then the next its cold – this could cause your body system to go haywire and soon you’ll catch a fever. That is why it is so so important to keep your body healthy all the time. Fueling and providing your body with a balanced diet and keeping fit is sometimes troublesome, why not try incorporating multivitamin into your daily routine?
