Although the rains do give some respite from the scorching heat, they are known to spread diseases which if overlooked can be dangerous to one’s health. Falling ill can be avoided with a few simple precautions!
Eating Out: Don’t be so sad if you have to give up roadside food, it’s only till the monsoon bids farewell that you’ll have to stay away from savouring your favourite Vada Pav, Bhajia and Shev Puris! Yes, as irresistible as they are and as difficult as it sounds it is important that the food that you eat is well-prepared, well-covered and safe from germs. Stick to home cooked meals and avoid eating outside.

Drinking Water: Monsoon poses risks of water-borne illnesses such as cholera, typhoid and dysentery, which spread due to the adulteration of drinking water. Boil your drinking water before consumption. Always carry your own water bottle and try to avoid unfiltered water at all costs.
Avoid Sea Food: Sea food is an absolute no! Monsoon is the breeding season for fish hence fresh sea food is rare. The best is to avoid them this time of the year instead of opting for frozen stale fish. Pick chicken and mutton to satisfy your yearning for non-veg food.
Wash Your Hands: You neglect this very basic instruction a gazillion times. In fact, washing your hands should be at the top of your list when it comes to taking safety measures during rainy season. This is the season when germs and bacteria’s work overtime to make your life miserable by targeting your immune systems. So go ahead, squeeze out a drop of liquid soap or always carry a hand sanitizer in your bag.
Exercise: Rain is the perfect excuse for skipping exercise routine. Outwit the rains by hitting the gym, using skipping rope, dancing your sweat out or simply using that untouched treadmill lying in your home. Since these can be used indoors, the rains are highly doubtful to hinder your fitness routine!
Binge on nutritional foods to stay healthy! With just a few safety measures, we can enjoy the loveliness and magic of these most-awaited showers.
