Here are some my wellness and survival tips for city living.
Drink at least 8 glasses of water to keep yourself hydrated. The number should go up in the summer as we tend to perspire more which leads to rapid loss of water from the body. Each time you go out, keep a water bottle with you to ensure easy access to clean water whenever you are thirsty.
Be sure to have enough sleep:
Use sunscreen every time you step out of the house. The UV and UB rays are extremely harmful to the skin and can also lead to skin cancer. You should apply sunscreen every time. Why? Remember that sun rays can penetrate the clouds and when they reach you they will harm your skin. Apply it half an hour before you step out and apply it again after 2-3 hours.
Keep all the emergency numbers handy:
If anything happens to you, make sure you have all the emergency numbers handy. Keep them where you can quickly access them. You could still have them on your speed dials on your phone. In addition to that, if you are suffering from a disease let your friends and family know about the medications you are taking and their quantities.
Avoid wearing flip-flops:
Whenever you get a cut you should know what to do to stop the bleeding. Take a class for first aid it may save your or a loved one’s life.
Health is so important and the foundation for a happy life. I hope this post points you in the right direction.
