Top 5 Heatwave Health Tips

 

Heat can pose a serious danger to our health if not dealt with properly. It can also lead to a lovely tan. Here are 5 easy to implement ways to stop your body from overheating and stay healthy even when your body is under stress:

1) DE-STRESS

  • Cold white tea is a great de-stressor in the heat as it contains the amino acid thiamine which reduces anxiety - we love Teapigs
  • Dark chocolate - yummy and proven to lower the stress inducing hormone cortisol 

2) CUT BACK ON ALCOHOL

  • Alcohol is proven to lead to dehydration
  • Instead try this 100% alcohol free clean gin - The Clean Liquor Co

3) REPLENISH YOUR SALT LEVELS

  • Mix a small amount of sea salt into some water 
  • OR electrolytes are a great alternative

 4) DRINK LOTS OF WATER

  • Drink room temperature water as it is best for your digestive system
