Monsoon is an excellent excuse for not exercising as continuous raining does not allow people to step out of their houses for walk or exercise however, it is needed to stay fit and boost your immunity levels. We all tend to enjoy spicy and fried food, that combined with lack of exercise along in monsoon increases body weight considerably.

Exercising can be fun during monsoon season as there are plenty of fun activities within the house which can help us enjoy monsoon and stay fit. Here are some of the activities which can help you in monsoon season as well.

  • Rain Dance: Dancing is one of the best cardio vascular exercise, which helps in stretching and burning of calories. Above all monsoon gives all the reasons to dance. So get your dancing shoes on and tap your feet on the latest tracks without caring about the steps.
  • Basic warm up and stretching: A basic warm up and stretching gives your day a kick start.Warm up and stretching not only prepares body for exercise but also helps in increasing rate of metabolism and heart rate.
