Ginhawa sa Kalusugan Ngayong Tag-Ulan: Prepare for the rainy season with these necessities

A change of seasons brings both relief and health issues when the cooling rains replace the sweltering summer heat. While the rain provides a much-needed respite, it also brings with it health issues that are especially noticeable at this time of year. 

The shift in seasons usually affects me because either one within our family catch coughs and colds. I hate it because it hinders me or the husband from doing our tasks and if it is my daughter~ it prevents her from attending her classes at school. As we continue to experience rainy days, it's helpful to have these essentials to stay healthy, snug and comfortable during the downpour:

1. Umbrella: Stay-dry comfort
Unsurprisingly, an umbrella is at the top of the list. If I look in the bags of most Filipinos, I'm sure to discover an umbrella. It's like a dependable buddy in this crazy weather. In the crazy weather we face every day, it acts as a reliable ally.  We could be in the midst of a rainstorm with gusting winds one minute and sweltering heat the next. Having an umbrella on hand makes me prepared for any weather surprises that may arise.

2. Tea: A cup of warmth
There's nothing quite like wrapping my hands around a warm mug of tea as the rain taps against the windowpane. The soothing warmth of tea instantly makes me feel snug and content, making it the ultimate comfort drink for gloomy weather. I always choose a selection of soothing herbal teas such as chamomile, lavender, or ginger, which not only provide warmth but also have calming and digestive properties. Sometimes, I add some honey or lemon for an extra touch of sweetness and flavor!

3. Soup: Comfort food for the soul
For many Filipinos, soup has always been a comfort food especially during the rainy days. Whether it's the beloved Filipino classics like sinigang, tinola, or bulalo, or a simple yet heartwarming bowl of pumpkin soup, these have always been a go-to choice for me especially when I want some warmth!

4. Essential oils: Aromatherapy for comfort
Call me a tita but I love indulging in essential oils. These tiny miracles are made from plant extracts, and they have the power to turn my day around with just a sniff! Lavender essential oils can help reduce stress, while eucalyptus essential oils can provide relief from congestion, making it easier to breathe in the damp weather. It’s great as a sleep aid, too!

5. Essential vitamins and medicines: Defense and immunity booster
No rainy-day care package is complete without essential vitamins and medicines. It’s wise to have them on hand during days when I’m feeling under the weather. This rainy season, I make sure I always have Nutrawell's Sodium Ascorbate that help boost my immune system and Actimed's Paracetamol for unbearable headache's brought by colds. And to make sure I have ample supply of quality and affordable generic medicines and vitamins, I always go to Generika Drugstore. 

Through its house brand products Actimed Generics and Nutrawell Supplements, Generika Drugstore makes flu and allergy relief medications accessible and affordable. 

With these rainy-day essentials, ramdam ko ang ginhawa ngayong tag-ulan, ramdam ko pa ang ginhawa sa bulsa with the vitamins and medicines from Generika Drugstore!
