The four-day Chhath festival has started from today, in which this festival is a very special occasion to worship Lord Surya and his sister Chhathi Maiya. This festival is seen more in Bihar, Jharkhand and UP, but in other cities too, people celebrate it with great enthusiasm. Long fasts are observed for 4 days in which there is a risk of health worsening. The main reason for this is lack of water in the body. To keep the body hydrated, you should adopt some home remedies before starting the fast. Their advantage is that they also maintain energy in the body. Know about some effective measures.
drink lemon water
A long fast is observed during Chhath Puja. Therefore, before keeping it, definitely consume lemon water. By drinking this the deficiency of electrolytes in the body gets compensated. Due to this benefit the body remains energetic. Drinking lemon water reduces thirst and can also overcome the deficiency of nutrients.
Before Chhath fast, you can keep yourself hydrated by drinking juice. Juice removes water deficiency in the body and energy remains in the body for a long time. Juice can prove beneficial for you but drink it at home instead of from the market. Fresh juice provides double the benefits.
drink coconut water
Those observing fast in worship of Chhathi Maiya and Surya Dev must drink coconut water. A boon for health, coconut water is effective in keeping the body hydrated. Elements like sodium, potassium and iron along with vitamins are found in coconut water. One should not avoid drinking coconut water in winter.
You can also drink buttermilk before fasting. This thing contains sodium, potassium and iron which keeps the heat in the stomach cool. Its specialty is that immunity can also be boosted by consuming it. The right time to drink it is afternoon. Consuming buttermilk calms the heat in the stomach.
