The summer temperatures in most parts of the country are steadily rising, making us vulnerable to heat cramps, exhaustion, dehydration, and other related problems. Staying home can be a great option to beat the heat, if you have homes in well planned townships that offer recreational activities within the campus. Read ahead to find out ways in which to stay home this summer and beat the heat:
April is about the come to an end, and the summers have already picked pace. In a month’s time, schools will close down for the summers. While many of you’ve already planned a holiday to the breezy beaches, but how long will such holidays last, a week or two? What happens when you’ll come home after the break? You’ll have to return to the heat, and staying at home can actually turn out to be the best option for spending time meaningfully, and without burning in the heat.
Things you can do at home to keep the heat away include:
Spend Time in Air-Conditioned Homes
Summers in many Indian cities means long hours of power cuts, which keep you away from air conditioning and takes you out of the house, to the Shopping Malls for some respite. But, newer townships that are emerging around Chandigarh are providing good backup for compensating electric cuts – certainly a good reason for staying at home!
Spend More Time with Your Children and Keep Them Protected Against Infections
Going out during the summers not only means vulnerability to heat strokes, but it also means that your family is going be susceptible to summer diseases like malaria, dengue and the like for mosquitoes are in plenty around the shabby gutters of the towns. Staying at home then is the best way to simultaneously keep away from the heat and the infection.
Select a House Where Plenty of Recreational Activities Are Accessible
All newly built housing projects today offer within their campus a multitude of recreational activities. From swimming pools for children and adults, to special sports complex, open theaters and gyms, all are accessible at a walking distance from the house. Housing projects like that initiated by Savitry Greens in Chandigarh, Zirakpur and Mohali offer them all and make it very convenient for you to remain home happy all through the summers.
Take A Cool Shower, Use the Refrigerator and Watch TV
How much we all yearn all year around to get some time to rest and watch TV, and when it’s sweltering hot outside, we simply leave home in search of the cool. Why not stay at home instead, watch some TV, drink cold water, eat ice cream and take as many cold showers to keep it cool all the time.
Prepare Ice Water Spas
Ice cold water spas are the simplest way to keep the heat out, and the easiest to do at home all by yourself. You simply need a tub or bowl full of ice water, in which you place your hands and feet. Our body radiates heat from the palms and the feet, and if you keep them cool, your entire body is left feeling cooler.
