Are you already enjoying the summer? Are you one of those #Greenviters who goes with flip-flops and swimsuits everywhere? Holidays in the mountains? Enjoying the seawater on some delicious beach? Or, on the contrary, have you not even left the office to go to throw out the garbage?
Whatever you are doing, we are almost sure of one thing: you have a sore throat. Don’t worry too much! It’s very common, during the summer, to suffer from pharyngitis, angina, or to catch a cold…. Wanna some tips to avoid those problems?
The power of Hydration: keep your throat hydrated, better with water, but you have other healthy and natural alternatives in our May blog. Hydration is the key to protect mucous membranes and vocal cords. Watch out !!! We have to drink slowly, with small sips, more if the drink is very cold or icy, because, if not, the remedy is still worse than the disease.
Being cool is always a good option: are you wearing a scarf or pashmina? They are essential allies in summer because changes in temperature are common (interior with air conditioning, exterior, cars, public transport, unexpected storm, drop in temperature …) and tremendously harmful to our throat. At home, in the office, in restaurants … use your good taste by choosing a good complement and, in addition, protect your throat!
Time to go to bed! Although dirty minds may be thinking about how to use a bed in the best way, we encourage you to rest and sleep well. Remember that the ideal is 6 to 8 hours a day, and, perhaps now, you can have that much desired time to sleep! Kill your alarm clock and, between summer parties, find a place to sleep, better if you have company 😉
Let’s see you in August! Until then, eat well and live well!
