World Mosquito Day: 9 Simple Tricks To Stay Mosquito-Free Team healthhunt Team healthhunt
20 Aug 2018Array min read

Dengue epidemic or not, mosquitoes have never been good news.

[:en]

Not only are mosquito bites bloody annoying (pun very much intended), they can be highly dangerous as well. Malaria, dengue, chikungunya, yellow fever, and now Zika, amongst others. Nowhere is the adage, ‘prevention is better than cure’, more applicable. Here are a few ways you can keep yourself mosquito-free:

1. Mosquito repellent – One of the simplest and most obvious things to do to prevent bites, yet most people either forget, or seem to want to avoid it. Always keep a tube or bottle in your bag, and make sure it has adequate DEET (N,N-Diethyl-meta-toluamide) content, about 30-50 per cent. DEET works by blocking the CO2 receptors of mosquitoes. Since mosquitoes are attracted to CO2, they will land on you, but won’t bite if you’ve applied an even coating of a product containing DEET. DO NOT use this for babies under 2 months.

2. Cover yourself well – No, I’m not going all puritanical on you. The more skin that is exposed, the more chances of you being bitten. Wear long-sleeved and full-length clothes, and try and choose clothing that is of a tight weave, so mosquitoes can’t get through it.

3. Mosquito net – This is one of the most effective ways to protect yourself at night, especially in warm and wet climates. This also works well for babies, as their crib/bassinet/stroller can be covered well with the net.

4. Light-coloured clothes – Mosquitoes usually swarm around the lower halves of your bodies, and use differentiation in colour to distinguish humans, or their food, from their surroundings, during the day. Hence, wearing light-coloured clothes will protect you from bites.

pasted image 0 (7)

5. Keep the fan on – You must have noticed that if a fan is on, or if it’s windy, you’re bitten less. The reason is that even if there is a slight breeze, mosquitoes find it difficult to fly.

6. Keep the CO2 away – Since mosquitoes are attracted to CO2, it makes sense to limit activities that create more of it in the body. These include drinking alcohol, eating spicy foods, and exercising too much.

7. Stay cool – It is believed that mosquitoes are attracted to warm bodies, and ‘old’ sweat. Have regular baths, keep your clothes clean, and wear comfortable clothing, especially if you are in a warm or humid climate. Dark-coloured clothes also attract heat, making you more susceptible to bites. Another reason to love pastels!

8. The natural way – Some plants and their oils are understood to keep the bites away. These include citronella, tea tree oil, lavender, basil, lemon eucalyptus, neem (Indian lilac) catnip, and peppermint. Some studies also say that increasing your intake of vitamin B1, or thiamine, will make you unattractive to mosquitoes. There is no strong evidence for this, but since high doses do not affect humans in any way, there is no harm trying this out.

9. Keep the perfume away – Perfumes tend to attract more mosquitoes, especially floral smells.

Pregnant women and overweight people are more likely to attract mosquitoes, as they have higher CO2 levels, so they need to take extra care.

Mosquitoes breed in still water, so keeping your surroundings clean is as important as any of the above points, or even more. If you use a water cooler, clean it every couple of weeks, and change the water. Kiddie pools, hot water tubs etc. also need to be kept clean. If you do get bitten, don’t scratch yourself silly. Instead, rub an ice cube or a little hand sanitiser to minimise the sting.

Weekend Workout: Try Pilates For A Lean Body Team healthhunt Team healthhunt

From a stronger core to better sex, Pilates is believed to add miles to your fitness goals, irrespective of your gender.

[:en]

 

                               https://img.aws.livestrongcdn.com/  

Pilates is a low-impact exercise that was developed in the early 1900s. It is seen as a way of building your core strength and enhancing flexibility, through repetitive exercises that focus on making your key muscles strong. Pilates involves a series of precise, tight movements that target specific muscle groups, which go a long way in building endurance, and is hence seen as a brilliant form of exercise for those looking to increase their overall tenacity.  

Strong core and flexibility – While you may start off slow, Pilates can be quite challenging, as it forces you to use muscles that have been in cold storage. Combine it with yoga for a strong core and flexibility, both of which will go a long way in keeping you moving, as you transition to middle and then old age. While on the surface of it you are strengthening your body, it works well to keep your mind sharp and focused as well.

More strength to you – However humble or lofty your exercise goal may be, Pilates can help you get to it by bettering the overall strength of your muscles, and endowing them with a tenacity they previously lacked. By doing Pilates, you can also reduce the incidence of injury.

Posture – Most of us lead a life which weakens our muscles, given its sedentary nature. Muscles need to move in order to stay relevant, and by fixing your posture you can fix many ills in your life. Pilates refers to this as alignment, where the focus is on making diverse muscle groups come together effectively to keep the body supple.

Makes you look leaner – For many people who think exercise needs to involve excessive cardio, Pilates may seem like it has limited benefits, but it works slowly and surely to better the health of your entire body. This form of exercise focuses on abdominal obliques, a group of muscles that are difficult to target through other forms of workout. As a result, rather than lose spot weight, you will find yourself looking leaner and more toned, overall.

Bye-bye back pain – Very often the back bears the brunt of our poor habits, and the best way to fix your back is by doing Pilates. How does this work? Most back-related problems are linked to a poor core, and by attacking and strengthening that core, the back benefits tremendously. Experts say that if you can stabilise the lumbar-pelvic area, the rest of the body breathes easy too.

Easier delivery – Unless your doctor has advised you otherwise, Pilates is the wonder exercise routine to follow during and post your pregnancy. Lifting the pelvic floor, which is a common term bandied about by Pilates instructors, helps strengthen your pelvic muscles and give them much-needed flexibility, which, in turn, can help with an easy labour and delivery.

Thank you! We look forward to answering your question.

Write for Us

Mental Wellbeing

Today, what we all need most is peace of mind, and mind you, it doesn’t come easy. To find tranquility, you must let go, and to learn to do that, you must embark on a journey for your own sake. We know that being healthy means so much more than just a healthy body. It means a healthy mind – a state of complete mental wellbeing. We welcome personal experiences, expert views, meditation techniques, and other holistic ways of achieving mindfulness.

Nutrition

The human body is perfectly designed by nature, and how we fuel it is important. In order to climb the Everest, backpack around the globe, get that promotion, break the world record for baking the largest apple pie, or anything else that you want to do in life – it is important that you and your body are on the same page. And surprisingly enough, of all aspects of health, nutrition is the most ignored or misinterpreted. No more fad diets, ‘magical detoxes’, or weight-loss powders. Nutrition is simple science...and lots of taste. Submissions within this category will include articles on health through foods, recipes, juices and smoothies, and natural and sustainable ways to achieve weight goals.

Fitness

We walk, run, swim, cycle, dance, workout – all to stay fit. Even though the end goals may be different for everyone, fitness, at the end of the day, means something that promises a healthy, fulfilling life. It means training your body to do better each day in whatever ways you want it to. Submit within this category if your article is to do with any form of physical fitness like yoga, running, muscle building, a success story, or any aspect of physical health.

Organic Beauty

Most of what you put on your skin is absorbed right into the bloodstream (Need proof? Think nicotine patches, or birth control patches). This is why a lot of the world is going back to their roots. Think organic. Think of all gifts of nature you could use, that could enrich your body, without all the chemicals and preservatives. Organic beauty is taking a stand for yourself – it is a lifestyle. If you have written about hair, skin, natural remedies, ayurveda, or alternate therapies, this is where you need to be.

Love

Love for a friend, family member, or lover – all such profound, complex emotions and connections. Oh love, love, love! It has the power to heal the soul, make a saint out of a criminal, and basically, just bring a smile to your face even on the most dismal of days. There are no rules, no laws, no policies, and absolutely no one manual when it comes to relationships. But oh, wouldn’t we all like a little help once in a while? Our broad categories include relationships, friendship, dating, sex, parenting, and other aspects of love.
