As the college days begin in this torrid weather, beat the heat and travel in comfort with these tips.

As your college commences with excitement, the only hindrance would be the unbearable heat and humidity of the Delhi weather. As different modes of vehicular transportation will be used for your commute, prep yourself for the best.

Here a few tips and tricks to stay hydrated and fresh to make the best of the day.

The most popular way of transportation is the Delhi Metro. They are well-connected and one can reach on time eliminating peak hour traffic. While travelling in metros, ensure you carry a scarf around. The temperature difference can cause strokes or nausea.

Carry your caps or scarves while travelling in auto-rickshaws and buses as the heat can cause great harm. While travelling in your own cars, always carry enough water and ensure proper ventilation in the car. Always keep your sunglasses along, as the sun rays can damage your eyes.

Have a lot of desi-treats like:

  • Aam Panna,
  • Jaggery lemonade,
  • Coconut water and,
  • Jal jeera; among others to be recharged.

These drinks are not only energy providers but have great health benefits as well; they quench your thirst and prevent the excessive loss of sodium chloride and iron during summer due to excessive sweating.

A lot of college canteens serve fresh juices and have a lot of cold beverages to enjoy. Relish in the exotic ‘mausambi juice’ to freshen up.

Whenever your body heats up from physical activity or the hot weather outside, your internal air conditioner turns on and you begin to sweat. And remember, now that your air conditioner is using its coolant (your sweat), it is important to refill the tank — by drinking lots of H2O.

So gear up for the college season and make the best out of it by following these steps.
