How to Keep Shining During Wet Monsoons?

Well, you may not see much of sunshine during the wet and damp rainy days of monsoons. But, should that stop you from shining yourself?

No, not at all! In fact, the lovely rains are a perfect time to shine, sizzle and look great…After all, it’s only after soul-drenching, lovely rains that you get relief from all the sweat, grime and heat of summers.

Only…it is not so easy!

Monsoons, however awaited they are, bring with them their fair share of troubles – from major traffic snarls to swampy (okay, not swampy but water-logged, nonetheless) roads to stomach bugs and skin break-outs. And then, there’s that always impending question – “What should I wear?”

We are not saying that we will give you some panacea, or answer that troubling question for you – sorry! But yes, from years of experience (of having lived and worked in cities with rains-with-a-mind-of-their-own), travel, observation and my personal research endeavors, we can surely reveal some treasures that will –
….let you shine – come rain or hail!

1. Follow this Mantra

Eat Light…Sleep Tight…and Exercise Right

Vital Reminders – Our bodies are vulnerable, our bones are softer and roads (and other walking surfaces) tend to be wet and muddy – during the rainy season. So, take care! Wear rain friendly, non-slippery shoes. Never exercise beyond your capacity. Do not strain yourself, if you feel muscular strains and pains. Listen to your body. Eat carefully. Drink clean water. Wash and dry your feet well. Steer clear of infections.

2. Bring out the Colors!
Dull, grey skies, lack of sunshine, overcast afternoons and sleepy evenings – rains pack a punch with all these too. There is less of going out, mingling and eating out. As the day ends, few of us have the patience and energy left to fight the traffic snarls, and indulge in some night revelry.

Result? Feeling drab, dull, gloomy and lonely already? Well, many won’t even wish to go in to work or school, given those moist, lazy mornings.

To handle these low feelings, and put everything on the upswing – bring out those colors in full bloom.

3. Banish Skin and Hair Woes

Skin and hair tend to lose their luster, during monsoons, especially if you are not careful. Take good care of your health and diet, for starters.

Follow these tips – along with a healthy lifestyle, and you shall largely be able to breeze through a ‘sunshiny’ monsoon period! And, before we leave you to enjoy the rains to the hilt, here are a few more important, handy tips –
