Sehri tips to stay hydrated during summer season in Hyderabad

In view of the forecast made by both IMD Hyderabad and TSDPS, residents are advised to take necessary precautions and plan accordingly.

With the summer heat on the rise during the Ramzan, it is essential to drink enough water during sehri. As per various studies, a minimum of 60 ounces or nearly 2 liters of water can help a person keep hydrated for an entire day during the fast.

Eating yogurt at the end of sehri meal is scientifically correct and beneficial as it helps to soothe the stomach and prevent acidity, eventually preventing from getting dehydration.

In order to be hydrated, keep spice, salt, and sugar low in meals and add water-rich foods like cucumber, tomato salad, and juicy fruits like watermelon, oranges, kiwi, and more in sehri meal.

Apart from it, wearing loose, light-colored cotton clothing can also help in coping with the heat.
