Have a Healthy Monsoon !!
When the scorching heat of summers is followed by the rejuvenating Monsoon showers, everyone is filled with relief. The cloudy sky, the downpour and lush greenery all around makes the season a beautiful time to enjoy. While the Monsoons bring the much needed relief from all the sweaty heat, they also bring along a host of health infections such as allergies, infections and indigestion. But there is no need to panic, with good care of diet and health; you will be able to tide through the monsoon.
 
Here are some simple measures to adopt this rainy season:
 
Balanced Diet 
 
As digestion during monsoon is slow, it is advisable to eat slowly and only when hungry.
• Foods such as brown rice, oats, and barley are the best foods one could have in this monsoon.
• Drink only boiled and purified water to protect you from harmful germs.
• Also, adding a dash of Garlic to the curries and soups can also improve your body’s immunity.
• Have medium to low salt food and avoid heavy salty food as they are responsible for high blood pressure and water retention.
• People facing skin allergies should keep away from spicy food as spicy foods tend to raise body temperature and stimulate blood circulation which then might lead to allergies and skin irritation
• Have medium to low salt food and avoid heavy salty food as they are responsible for high blood pressure and water retention.
 
Cleanliness and Hygiene 
 
Before consuming fruits and vegetables, make sure to wash them thoroughly, especially leafy vegetables. Also, one must steam the leafy vegetables in order to kill the germs. Contaminated food might lead to illnesses such as jaundice. Eating freshly cooked food is recommended instead of uncooked vegetables and salads, unless they are organic.
 
Exercise 
 
Showers outside may hamper your exercise routine, but it can easily be managed by performing simple stretches, sit ups, knee bend to flex muscles. One could also take up Yoga, which is yet another method of indoor exercise and is known to help improve respiratory problems.
