Monsoon is a season when most individuals fall sick. The change in weather usually causes cold and flu to spread amongst individuals. During monsoon, our White Blood Cells (WBC) weaken due to frequent temperature fluctuations. This compromises our immunity and makes it vulnerable to the attack of free radicals.
Another aspect that compounds the situation is our lifestyle choices. Our lifestyle choices and environmental factors play a huge role in determining whether our immune system can withstand and prevent diseases.
It is therefore pivotal for us to adopt healthy lifestyle choices. In tandem with those choices, proper diet and supplementation are necessary to stay healthy. In this article, we will look at some important habits that an individual can adopt during monsoon. In addition, we will also understand the role of supplementation for a healthy immune system.
4 important monsoon health tips to keep you healthy during this monsoon
Practicing healthy habits can be crucial, especially with an increasing number of people getting sick. This also comes with an impending threat of the Coronavirus. So, here are a few habits that individuals can start practicing and stay healthy during monsoon –
Exercising or practicing some form of physical activity can drastically improve health. It helps us stay active and makes our immune system vigilant to external attacks. It also plays a role in helping us release harmful toxins from our bodies.
Nowadays, most people tend to stay hooked to their phones. With everything made readily accessible, they are reluctant to engage in any form of physical activity. This is detrimental to our health and can cause serious health issues.
Exercise is essential to improve cardiovascular health and release serotonin (happy hormone). These, in turn, play a key role in improving immunity. An individual can start with a simple activity like going on a run or practicing yoga. Even 15 minutes can make a huge difference. Overall, one must consider starting exercise to stay healthy this monsoon.
2. Wash/ Sanitise hands frequently
Now, this is perhaps one of the most ignored aspects. Washing or sanitising hands frequently is important during monsoon as individuals are more likely to contract diseases. One must wash hands properly before eating or after coming home or touching something outside. Most of those surfaces contain harmful microbes. An individual may fall sick and experience stomach upset, diarrhoea, cough, cold and other major health problems. Maintaining hand hygiene is necessary to ensure that we get rid of these harmful microorganisms and stay healthy.
3. Eat a healthy diet
It is important for individuals to avoid junk. Not just during monsoon, but during any season. Junk food is the root cause of most health problems. It contains high amounts of saturated and Trans fats. This leads to obesity. In turn, it causes health problems such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes and other comorbidities.
A poor diet leads to an increase in the attack of free radicals, which may result in an individual falling sick. So, Individuals must consider regulating their diet. They must consume healthy food that contains vitamins, minerals, proteins and other essential nutrients.
Nutritionists suggest that individuals must consume a diet that meets the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA). The challenge with this is most individuals cannot meet their RDA even after consuming a nutritious diet. This calls for additional health supplements and immunity boosters to help individuals stay healthy.
4. Immunity boosters and health supplements
Immunity boosters and health supplements are becoming inevitable additions to an individual’s routine in current times. A few decades ago, individuals would have been reluctant to consume health supplements due to lack of information. However, with easy access to information during current times, people can get the exact information of the ingredients.
Health supplements also help bridge nutritional gaps, fight health conditions and improve overall immunity. During monsoon, consuming health supplements is highly beneficial when an individual is most vulnerable to health problems.
