The DO’s and DON’Ts for this summer :

Ayurveda, the ancient Indian system of medicine, offers several measures that can help us stay healthy and relaxed during the summer season.


  • Wear loose-fitting, light-coloured clothing stitched from natural fabrics like cotton, linen, and silk to keep your body cool and comfortable.
  • If you want to stay active during the summer, it’s best to do so indoors or in the early morning or late evening when the temperature is more relaxed. Activities like yoga, indoor sports, and swimming can be great ways to stay active and relaxed during summer.
  • Use a hat or an umbrella to protect your head and face from the sun.
  • Eat light food like watermelon, cucumber, mint, and coconut to keep your body cool and energized.
  • Plan outdoor activities during the cooler hours of the day, like early morning or late afternoon.
  • Take regular breaks in the shade or indoors to cool down and avoid overexposure to the sun.
  • Apply sunscreen lotion with a minimum SPF of 30 and reapply every two hours or after swimming or sweating to protect your skin from harmful UV rays.


  • Do not stay in the sun for prolonged periods, especially during the hottest part of the day, between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m.
  • Avoid wearing tight-fitting clothes or synthetic fabrics that can trap heat and make you uncomfortable. Do not consume alcohol, caffeine, or sugary drinks, as they can dehydrate your body and lead to heat exhaustion.
  • Do not exercise or engage in strenuous physical activities during the hottest part of the day.
  • Do not leave children or pets unattended in closed cars or other enclosed spaces, as they can quickly become dangerously hot.

Ayurveda believes that food plays a crucial role in our health and well-being. Hence, it recommends a diet rich in whole foods, fruits, vegetables, and healthy fats. Summer is a season of abundance when it comes to fruits. Many fruits are at their peak during this season and are an excellent source of essential vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Savour the sweetness of summer with Ayurveda’s holistic approach.

Happy Summer
