Be Prepared for Rainy Season

When you are going out, you should be prepared and well geared so that even if you are caught in rain, you do not get drenched. This is very important. This will save you from many infections.


Drink Purified Water

To save yourself from water borne diseases try to purify the drinking water up to the maximum level. There are many new and improved water filters available in the market. They are not only economical are useful also. If you do not have any water purifying system at home, you should buy one of these this rainy season. You can also drink boiled water in the absence of water filter to get somewhat relief from infections.


Take Extra Care

No one wants to get sick. But if anyone is sick in your home, try to give him complete comfort and keep him warm especially when it is cold or flu. Do not take any kind of risk and if the temperature or the symptoms persists even after 24 hours, consult the doctor.

When a person is sick, he or she might feel depressed and so you can put on light and soothing music so that it helps him feel relaxed.


Keep yourself Clean
 

If the cause of disease is lack of cleanliness, either inside or outside the house, get it rectified first. Cleanliness in every aspect is extremely important during rainy season.

Try to avoid getting wet in rains as much as possible. This will help you to keep the health disorders away during rainy season. The first thing which you get affect by when you get wet in rain is cold. And in this way you may also get fever if you get wet in rains for a longer time. Therefore, if it starts raining and you do not have umbrella you should wait rain to stop instead on getting wet in rain.

It is better to avoid eating outside during rainy season. If you avoid eating outside during rainy season, you can automatically keep lot of health disorders away from you. It is very necessary to eat only homemade food during rainy season as lot of water born diseases spread during rainy season due to eating outside. Therefore, I prefer to drink boiled water and I avoid eating outside during rainy season to avoid health disorders.

Cold is a common illness which is caused during rainy season. Cold is an unavoidable disorder during rainy season. Therefore, it is better to avoid having cold stuff during rainy season as it may increase the chances of getting cold during rainy season. Apart from cold, flu, fever, coughs are other disorders which a person may suffer from during the rainy season.
