3. Eating

According to TCM, summer is a season that depletes energy and body fluids and we should cater our diet to it. Basically, the key to health during this hottest season is to “cool” and “clear”—cool our mind and clear our body. Opt for a light and bland diet that is effective in clearing heat and reducing sweating, like eating more vegetables and fruits those with cold/cool property. At the same time, avoid high fat, strong flavor, and hot spicy food that are warming in nature bringing extra heat to the body.
