Tell about a day when you fell ill.
- What illness were you suffering from?
- What was your experience?

A healthy lifestyle is an important factor in keeping a body healthy. It is highly necessary to maintain a proper routine in order to keep your body healthy. There are different ailments one can suffer from due to various reasons, such as cold, flu, nausea, and many more. I also fell ill at the start of this winter season, during last December.
I have recently shifted to Dehradun and this was my first winter season spent here. As I had shifted from another city and did not take heed of the weather change. Moreover, I ate a lot of cold foods and beverages and roamed around the city in the cold winds without wearing warm clothes. Due to these negligent practices, I caught cold and a high fever with severe body ache.
I was very tired that day due to lack of sleep. I was coughing, sneezing, and had a running nose. It was a very bad experience and it taught me a lot. With a lot of difficulty, I got ready and went to a doctor. The doctor advised me medicines and gave me strict instructions to follow regarding my routine and things to take care of during extremely cold weather. During my bed-rest, I had to take leaves from office, resulting in a disrupted routine, and loss of pay. My work and social life suffered equally, and I learned a lesson to maintain a proper routine and to take care of my health in order to prevent any future illnesses.
