How would you feel if you get drenched in your own sweat from head to toe, your clothes sticking to your body like tissues with oily french fries? And what if this happens every time you get out of an air conditioned area?
This has been a hot summer in Delhi. It’s always a hot summer in Delhi, but this time I might have felt it too much. And this week, the temperature has been a constantly above 42C (108 F), plus a LOT of humidity! Yesterday, I could not even complete my workout due to total exhaustion. The air is heavy, and if you’re not in an air conditioned room, you’ll keep sweating, losing your body fluids, which will obviously make you really tired. It’s monstrous, to say the least.
If you’re living in Delhi or in place where you have similar conditions (it’s not hard to imagine that there will be similar conditions in other place, due to global warming), then I have some survival tips for you:
- Keep a water bottle with you. You just have to stay hydrated.
- Wash your hands and face every time you come back from outside, especially during the day
- Eat Ice Cream and drink chilled beverages! 😉
These tips might seem pretty obvious, but I wrote them down just in case you need a reminder.
Pray for the monsoons to arrive soon!
