THE ART OF COOLING30 Sep 2021, Posted by FYS News in
Here in Mallorca, like most of the Mediterranean, we are in a heatwave. It is seriously hot and when I step outside it feels like I’m in a sauna. Even walking my dog in the evening after the sun goes down is sweaty work.
What do I use to cool down? Are iced drinks the answer? Or, is iced water to be avoided? I even read a social media post this morning demonising iced water… Seriously??
What does the evidence say?
What is the take out?
I find that cold drinks, whether iced water or something like a juice or kombucha are as refreshing mentally as physically. I drink a mixture of filtered water (room temperature) and herbal teas throughout the day and during exercise I add a little salt to my water and maybe a squeeze of lemon.
