91

Everyone awaits for the monsoon season, especially after the hot and torrid summers. As the royal blue clouds start to loom in the sky, there’s a sigh of relief among people. The cool breeze followed by shimmering raindrops brings out a joyous disposition from people.

However, monsoon season can be unforgiving in its own ways as it brings with itself more than just umbrellas and raincoats. The rainy season increases the probability for infections such as bacterial, viral, and fungal. Hence, it’s necessary to follow certain practices to boost immunity and make healthier lifestyle choices.

Here are five ways to keep yourself perfectly healthy in this monsoon season:

1. Avoid Street Food

Strictly avoid eating street food during monsoon, especially if you have low immunity. Street food increases the chances of infections because most of it is prepared in the open and is a hotbed for microbes. Consuming street food during monsoon will invite food and waterborne diseases.

2. Drink Safe Water

Make a habit of drinking safe water throughout the year; however, do make sure you follow this habit during monsoon season. Monsoon season is humid and a favourable environment for the microbes to strive on. Drinking clean and boiled water will reduce the risk of waterborne diseases during the rainy season and even improve digestion.

3. Practice Good Hygiene

Maintaining good hygiene is among the most crucial things to do in the monsoon season. Accidental touch of hands to the mouth can cause the spread of germs and cause infection. Use a hand wash to maintain optimum hand hygiene and always wash hands before preparing and eating food. Also, keep your surroundings clean and avoid infestation of mosquitoes and germs that are particularly active in this season.

4. Healthy Diet

A balanced diet consisting of fruits, herbs, green leafy and cruciferous vegetables is idle for monsoon season. Consuming a healthy diet will boost immunity and reduce the risk of falling sick. Eat seasonal foods as they are less likely to be infested with bacteria, germs, and worms. Furthermore, only eat cooked food and strictly avoid eating raw vegetables.

5. Exercise

The role of exercise is associated with a higher immune function. Even though during the monsoon season it might not be possible to hit the gym, but you can always exercise at home. Yoga and stretching at home will ensure that muscles and bones are lubricated and prevent pain. Exercising boosts immune function which helps fight illnesses.

Monsoon will be here soon, and it’s going to bring with itself a host of illnesses. The best thing to do is to protect you as these infections can sometimes lead to hospitalization.
