Drinking water should be the top one habit that we should take seriously during monsoon. The benefits of drinking optimum water have been proved by many health-related studies. Drinking boiled water will help us to remove toxins from the body and helps in blood circulation. To maintain a strong immune system, experts recommend drinking boiled water during monsoon.
Tip: Avoid intake of soft drinks as it reduces the enzyme activity which can weaken digestive system.
To make monsoon safe and healthy for you, follow a balanced diet. Since the body finds it harder to digest food during the monsoon, eat only in moderation. Try to include leafy veggies and freshly cooked food in your diet. Avoid seafood and fried food as these could cause a tummy upset and bloating.
Tip: Wash vegetables and fruits thoroughly with clean water before eating. Use potassium permanganate to clean fruits and veggies as it is very effective in washing away germs, bacteria and pesticides.
Eat Clean and Fresh Food
Chances of water contamination are high in the rainy time. Try to eat fresh food that proved maximum nutritional benefits. Limit processed food as these items have lost some of their fiber and nutrients but gained sugar, chemicals, or other ingredients. Also, our body takes a very long time to digest it.
Tip: Avoid street food as most diseases during this season are water-born and make sure you maintain a healthy diet.
Keep Away from Monsoon Insects
Monsoon insects like mosquitoes and flies are welcomed with the rains and can severely affect your health. Protect yourself from Malaria, Dengue, and other microbial diseases by staying away from these insects as the rainy season is perfect for them to breed.
Tip: Clean outstanding water to prevent mosquito breeding and use camphor to keep mosquitoes at bay due to its scent.
Avoid getting wet
Most people love to get wet in the rain. Walking around soaked is probably the unhealthiest option. Prolonged exposure to rain can make you inclined to viral ailments like cold, fever, cough and throat infection. As per WHO’s information, do not spend more than 10-12 minute in the rain as it could spoil good health.
Tip: Soon after getting wet in rain, take a hot cup of black tea/green tea and wash yourself with warm water.
Keep a watch over your eyes during this monsoon as dry eyes, conjunctivitis, ulcers, and stye are encountered during rainy days. Avoid touching eyes with dirty hands. Direct contact with eyes and rainwater can cause many infections.
Tip: Do not share towels or personal items with others as infections are spread through cloths and touched items.
Stay safe this monsoon!
