"Suddenly the warm wind arrives, follow the small heat." Today, we usher in the small summer solar term, which is the 11th solar term of the twenty-four solar terms and the 5th solar term in summer, marking the arrival of midsummer.

  "Small heat and big heat, steam up and boil down." Folks usually refer to the period between the minor heat and the end of the summer as the "dog days", which is the highest, humid and sultry period of the year, which can be described as full of "heat".

As the "sauna" mode has been launched in various places, the appetite that needs to be rescued the most is the appetite that cannot be raised.

  According to the customs of previous years, during the small summer season, there are sayings of eating new food, eating lotus root, fried eel slices, eating Fu noodles, and eating dumplings.

In addition to these customs, you can also eat more watermelon, bitter gourd, mung beans and other foods that are mainly used to clear away heat and relieve heat to save the taste buds.

As the saying goes, "sleeping in spring, lacking in autumn and taking a nap in summer", eating more potassium-rich foods such as potatoes, spinach, and kelp can help to disperse sleepiness.

  In terms of housing and transportation, some heatstroke prevention tips are also essential.

Don't stay in the air-conditioned room for a long time, and don't close the air-conditioned room for a long time.

Arrange work reasonably and pay attention to the combination of work and rest.

If you go out, try to avoid sun exposure and replenish water in time.

Always prepare sunstroke prevention medicines, maintain an optimistic attitude, and have a healthy and comfortable summer.
