We already know that Monsoon is the best time for viruses and bacteria to make merry and multiply themselves in geometric progression.

To this end, nothing could be better than eating sprouts, fresh green vegetables, and oranges to make your diet Vitamin C rich.
A big no to Junk Food
One of the most fascinating or tempting things about monsoon is the stimulus of our taste buds. We are easily allured to eat street food, deep oil fried chaat, samosas, pakodas, and freshly cut fruits and other kinds of food items sold on the street, that should be evaded strictly. There are many reasons to refrain from being a diehard foodie during these days. It is a well-known fact that roads are seen bursting with potholes full of water and mud. These strike chord with our hidden neighbors in the form of harmful microorganisms. When such street food items are unprotected in the open air, the higher they are likely to become home to them. So, when you devour your beloved junk food, you are prone to get in touch with a disease.
Stop Storing Stagnant Water
Another most rampant concern during the days of monsoon is of the growth in the number of mosquitos. Despite being so tiny, they can be your biggest nightmare once they get you infected. They are a master in making hell out of our lives. But don’t be frightened and worried. A little care can help you overpower these little beasts. By the help of a few precautions, you can easily sail through the trouble caused by these little monsters. You need to make sure that there is no open water storage in your home. Make sure that pots are always safeguarded with covers. By the same token, save some time to notice that the drains are not blocked. Moreover, no rainwater should be held standing in your vicinity. It is a universal truth that mosquitos are born in motionless water, so eliminating causes of stagnant water will help the cause.
Add a Disinfectant to the Bath Water
One of the most enticing things about rain is taking a walk along with your loved ones or friends. There are obvious reasons to that; like imitating Amitabh Bachan or some other actors or enjoying Bollywood songs during rain. Doing this is invigorating and nothing short of a heavenly feeling. But, while doing so, care for some disinfectant like Dettol, Savlon, or Betadine. (Of course, it’s no product placement). It will help you stay away from the millions of bacteria, fungi, virus and many other microorganisms and you stay healthy and fit. Washing your hands and feet, legs are advisable as you get back.
Nonetheless, enjoy the monsoon. Happy rainy days ahead!
