Health Tips For Monsoon

Monsoon brings with itself the promise of rain, new life, and an escape from the heat and humidity of summer. 

As a result, while we might love walking in the rain, diving into a puddle in the field or just enjoying freshly cut fruits on the road, it certainly isn’t entirely harmless.

To stay safe and enjoy the rains to the fullest, we prepared a list of 5simple health tips.



Dr. Santosh Dhadambe, CMO, Vijaybhoomi University

  1. Increase Vitamin C intake

Monsoon is the perfect time for viruses and bacteria to thrive. To remain healthy, you need to increase your immunity. One of the easiest ways of doing that is increasing your Vitamin C intake. Eat sprouts, fresh green vegetables, and oranges to have a Vitamin C-rich diet.

  1. Drink clean water

During the monsoons, ensure you are drinking clean and purified water, whether at home or outside. If you drink beverages outside, ensure that only pure water is used (including ice cubes). Taking your bottle of water with you is best to be on the safe side. 

  1. Avoid junk food

Street food, freshly cut fruits, and other kinds of food items sold on the street should strictly be avoided. The road is usually filled with potholes full of water and mud. These form perfect incubators for various kinds of harmful microorganisms. The longer the food items are exposed to the open air, the higher they are likely to become home to them. So, whenever you eat your favorite junk food, you are more likely to contract a disease.

  1. Add a disinfectant to the bathwater

Most people love taking a stroll in the rain. However, remember to bathe with a disinfectant like Dettol, Savlon, or Betadine, every time you get wet. It will save you from the millions of microorganisms you carry home and help you stay healthy and fit. Washing your hands and feet and legs is advisable as you get back. 

  1. Exercise regularly and get enough sleep

Don’t let the rain wash away your exercise routine. Jumping rope, squats, planks and burpees are all excellent exercises that can be done indoors. Exercising not only helps you lose weight or stay in shape, but it is also great for your immunity. It gets your heart racing, improves blood circulation, and triggers serotonin (happiness hormone) production, all of which fortify your immune system against viruses and bacteria. Don’t stay up late working or watching a web series. 7-8 hours of sleep bolsters immunity and helps to reduce the chances of flu and cold-like conditions common during monsoons.

Educational Binge

In today’s health-conscious world, people are always on the lookout for newer ways of satisfying their urges of taste while still keeping things healthy. In order to satisfy that craving for something namkeen and savoury, Healthy Binge is a health-centric brand.

On 16th July, The Founder and Co-Founder, Pranav Korke and Karan Korke came to VijayBhoomi University to conduct an Experiential Entrepreneurship session, ‘Idea to Startup Journey’. The session was announced to the campus and many students were excited about interacting with entrepreneurs who were involved in a startup involved in the food industry.

On the day of the session, Pranav and Karan were greeted by an enthusiastic audience. The session started with Introductions and then the speakers took over. They started with a story about themselves. Both of the speakers had good jobs but they decided that to pursue their goals, they had to leave their comfort zone and venture out into the unknown. This then branched out to the importance of perseverance in the current startup-dense market. 

They revealed that while it had not been their initial idea to start with Healthy Binge, their ability to adapt led them to the idea of selling healthy snacks. They also pointed out the importance of market research and emphasized the idea of focusing on one’s target audience.

The students, who had been very attentive to the learning and the journey were very inquisitive, which made the session very interactive. The session ended with the students receiving some gift boxes from the pair.

  Readers Ask, Vijaybhoomi Answers    

Is there a specific venue for events at the University?


There is an Amphitheatre where all the open mic events and shows used to happen. Students can spread across the place, and have a seat in their own comfort. 

All the previous events like dance shows, DJ nights, and musical nights, took place in the amphitheater. 

Recently, the Auditorium has opened up for events. It is well-treated for sound and is the best for open mics and other events. This Auditorium is inside the workstation building that is built up for the musicians on the campus.

One should experience the vibes of the events in the Auditorium and the Amphitheatre both.
