If they drink too fast, the water will quickly enter the blood and be absorbed in the intestines, making the blood thinner. , blood volume increases, the heart is not good, especially those with coronary heart disease will have symptoms such as chest tightness, shortness of breath, and serious myocardial infarction. Therefore, in summer, drinking water should not be too fast, but a small amount of time. Drink only 100-150 ml each time, the body can absorb it better, and you can't be cold. Warm water above 10 degrees is best for the body.
Cleaning the room should be diligent
The sultry heat and high humidity in summer make it easier for dust to adhere to the air and enter people's skin and body. Because it is difficult to detect with the naked eye, people often neglect to clean them up. They float in the air for a long time and adhere to the surface of objects in large quantities, becoming the habitat of dust mites and mold spores in the air. These dirty things will take the opportunity to enter the respiratory system, and then cause various diseases such as asthma and rhinitis. It is recommended that the frequency of cleaning should be increased in summer, once every two or three days.
The eyes are most afraid of the sun
Chinese medicine reminds that the eyes are the most vulnerable organs. Experts remind that if the eyes are cold and afraid of heat, if you do not pay attention to sun protection, it is easy to prematurely age and cause various eye diseases. If you want to go out from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm, it is best to wear sunglasses, hats or umbrellas. The colors of sunglasses are brown and light green for the best UV protection; you can eat more eye-friendly foods, such as longan, yam, Carrots, red dates, etc.; bacteria multiply quickly in summer, try to rub your eyes with your hands as little as possible; wash your face with running water, which can reduce eye diseases.
Morning exercise is the most afraid of early
Morning exercise is a habit that many people have. Because the weather gets brighter earlier in summer, many people go to the park early for morning exercise. However, the air pollutants are the most in summer, and they are not fully diffused before 6:00 in the morning. In addition, before sunrise, because there is no photosynthesis, not only there is not too much fresh oxygen near the green plants, but a large amount of carbon dioxide accumulates, which is not good for health. Therefore, the summer morning exercise time should not be earlier than 6 o'clock.
Play should be quiet
In hot summer, you can't travel long distances, you should seek seclusion nearby. In the morning, when the sun shines first, the three breaths are fresh, and you can go for a walk in the lush gardens to exercise, revive the old and take in the new. In the evening, when the sun goes down, you can stroll along the riverside and lakeside. The cool breeze will make you calm like water and eliminate the fatigue of the day.
The cervical spine is most afraid of blowing
The protection of the cervical vertebra is an important thing in the health care of the four seasons, but in summer, because the weather is very hot, the chance of turning on the air conditioner is very high, but the cervical vertebra is blown against the air conditioner, and the surrounding soft tissue will be diseased, resulting in chronic inflammation of the muscles and subcutaneous tissue. , resulting in continuous neck spasm, back pain and other consequences. It is recommended that the temperature of the indoor air conditioner should not be lower than 25 degrees Celsius, and the shoulders and back should not be directly facing the air conditioner. If the temperature cannot be adjusted by itself, you can put a shawl on your shoulders and take a hot shower at night.
The exercise in summer should be moderate and not overtired. Patients with high blood pressure, heart disease, arteriosclerosis, gastritis, hyperthyroidism, obesity and the elderly and infirm should not exercise under the hot sun or in a high temperature environment.
4. Matters needing attention
After the beginning of autumn, the spiritual recuperation should achieve inner peace, peace of mind, and a comfortable mood, and avoid sadness and sadness, so as to adapt to the peaceful atmosphere of autumn. In life, you should start to "lie early and get up early, and you will be happy with the chicken".
