Eat light and non-fried foods
Include light, non-fried foods in your diet. Never eat too much food at once. Eat food which is easily digested. During summer, the stomach takes more time to digest food and light and non-fried food gets digested quickly. Avoid eating food kept in the open or fast food during summer.
Avoid spicy foods
Abstain from spicy and acidic food. Spicy food causes burning sensation in the stomach and invites many other problems.
Keep yourself cool
Always keep yourself cool by using a fan or cooler. Avoid going out without work and if it is necessary to go, then definitely use an umbrella.
Avoid exposure to direct sunlight
Avoid the sun’s rays and stay mostly in the shade so that there is not much pressure on your respiratory system.
Always keep humidifier
If there is less moisture in the air and those who have breathing issues, especially keep a humidifier with you and use it. It will cure the problem of breathing.
