With schools going on summer break soon and more people looking forward to applying for days off from work, everyone could use some fresh air and peaceful time away from the hassle of the city life. Heat wave conditions prevailed in both the state of Haryana and Punjab with temperatures soaring to a maximum of 46.7℃ recorded at Narnaul (Haryana) and Sirsa (Punjab). Chandigarh’s weather also soared to maximum recorded this year at 44℃ on 29th May 2018.
To beat the heat wave we have gathered few tips to help you plan better this summer and use the time to regain your energies. Here we go:
1) Places to Visit
The location of the city beautiful offers easy access to several places in contrast to its city life. Its location is ideal for weekend getaways with many exotic, diverse and culturally rich destinations within reach of few hours. However, experiencing cultures which attract tourists from around the world, such as the diverse Rajasthan, beautiful Uttarakhand and the mystical Himachal Pradesh. Three less-visited and serene places, for both short and long vacations, that opens the doors to the freshness of mother nature include:
i) Chail, Himachal Pradesh
mere 103 km from the city, the exotic hill-station is known for its outdoor activities such as hiking and exquisite architecture. Another important aspect of Chail is its Sanctuary which offers an abode of wildlife. Thus, you get to experience the dense cover of oak, pine, and grassland, and as well get to witness some of nature’s best creation.
ii) Mussoorie, Uttarakhand
Situated about 200 km from the city, the pristine hill-station has all to offer for a perfect getaway. Showcasing its silver waterfalls, pristine ambiance and lush-green landscape everywhere you turn your head to, Mussoorie is the perfect way to unwind from the city life.
iii) Lansdowne, Himachal Pradesh
For people who would want the complete tranquility of mind and silence, Lansdowne is an option to consider. Ideal place for solo travelers, honeymooners and rejuvenating environment.
iv) Jaipur, Rajasthan
Perhaps for some, summer is about educating themselves and any amount of weather variation isn’t going to come in their way. One such place to engulf yourself in the rich heritage of our country is Jaipur which offers magnificent forts and palaces such as Hawa Mahal, City Palace, Jal Mahal and Jantar Mantar (observatory).
2) Drinks & Food
Keeping yourself hydrated and well nourished is crucial whether you plan on traveling or not. Few of the summer drinks that help you revitalize, promote wellness and can boost your health naturally while protecting you considerably from the damage hot weather may cause include water, coconut water, lemon water, pomegranate water, aam panna (Mangoes and mint leaves), mango lassi and lemon ginger squash. Food, vegetables, and fruits, which also help beat the heat significantly include cucumber, celery, watermelon, tomatoes, muskmelon, yogurt/curd, blackberries, raspberries, strawberry and dark leafy greens.
3) What to Avoid
Few things to avoid during summer include dark-colored clothes as they absorb more heat, drinking sugary drinks rather than water and other natural drinks, eating too much junk/street food (should be avoided for optimal health, anyway) and sipping one too many coffees as coffee which may cause you light-headed due to coffee’s natural diuretic.
In conclusion, these are few ways one can go about to beat the heat. Since most of our daytime is spent behind walls of our offices or working at/from home, getting out the city is a much needed psychological break.
