The flu virus commonly enters our body through the eyes, nose and mouth.
Resist the urge to scratch your eye or wipe your sweaty forehead. Bring a clean napkin or handkerchief instead.
Protect yourself from dirty water
Clogged gutters and dirty puddles are a common sight during rainy season. Unfortunately, they are sources of water-borne diseases like diarrhea, influenza, cholera and fungal skin infections.
Covering up is the best way to protect yourself from these diseases and still maintain your active life. Aside from a jacket, invest in a good pair of rain boots. In the Philippines, many commuters prefer wearing rubber slippers because, unlike most closed shoes, they dry fast and are easy to move around in.
But slippers leave your feet at the mercy of contaminated elements.
Rain boots are now available for a very cheap price and can be found in a range of styles and designs to suit anyone. They can be taken indoors and stored in lockers or in a bag underneath your office desk.
Rubber ones are light enough to carry in a backpack.
Avoid eating street food
While fish ball, kwek kwek and kikiam sold in the streets sound like a good idea any time of the year, the rainy season is when you should stay away from them. Food cooked and sold in the open air are likely to come in contact with airborne and waterborne diseases and bacteria.
Better to eat fresh, home-cooked meals. Why not cook fish balls at home?
Keep mosquitoes out
The mosquito population grows during monsoon because stagnant water — their choice breeding ground — becomes more common.
To keep mosquitoes out of your life, do some housecleaning. Look through flower pots, fountains, ditches, nooks and crannies that may be holding stagnant water. Clean them out and cover them until the end of the season.
Slather mosquito repellent over your body, especially when you go outdoors.

To make it extra good for your body (not to mention pleasant and delicious), you can add body warming ingredients like cloves, ginger, pepper, basil and mint. Drink many of heating herbal teas, particularly those with antibacterial properties.

This substance can be your best friend during the rainy season when the nose gets clogged from flu and the body is maxed out from other diseases or even when dealing with just the extra strain of commuting in the rain.
There are several ways to breathe in its healing and calming aroma. You can dilute it in water and use it to steam your face.
You can also put a few drops of oil in a handkerchief and bring it wherever you go. Alternatively, you can dab it on your neck and head. - With reports from Pia Ranada/
