Having our loved ones around us brings about a feeling we cherish deeply; ask anyone who has commitments that demand most of their time away from their family. For this reason, people look forward to holidays to spend precious time with their nearest and dearest ones. One such instance is summer holidays, which parents wait for eagerly to get some quality time with their children that is otherwise impossible during the school year.

With our demanding lifestyles, making time for our family is a rarity, which is why holidays are the ideal time to correct that work-life balance. It is the perfect time to plan outings that allow the entire family to explore outside the confines of the house and gain some much-needed distance from our TVs or computers. Since this time is limited, it is very disheartening to see our loved ones fall sick to diseases.

Among the many diseases in India, malaria and dengue caused by mosquitoes were once considered seasonal diseases. But today, mosquitoes are present in our surroundings throughout the entire year. The monsoon is just the period when they multiply in huge numbers. Thus, here are some easy and quick solutions to keep your loved ones safe from mosquitoes:

1. For infants, try to put a mosquito net over their cots. A mosquito net is by far the easiest solution since they are quick to install and last for a long duration of time.
