Tips for Staying Healthy
During Holidays and Travel

How to care for your health on holidays

The holidays are great because they give us a chance to come out of your daily routine and escape from our work monotony. It's also an opportunity to get rid of the stress and have holiday fun with our family and friends. There's no better way to rest and relax.

But you also have to be mindful of your health when travelling and on holidays. Being more relaxed, with less responsibilities, you might be more tempted to indulge in junk foods, unhealthy drinks and lazing around, all of which can end up having a netive effect on your health.

Holiday Health Advice

To avoid potential problems, it's important to take some precautions and stay healthy during your holiday travel. Here's some advice that will help keeping your health and enjoying your holidays more.

1. Visit your doctor

Before you travel, it’s better to have a quick visit to your physician. This is especially advisable if you suffer from chronic illnesses. He/she will then properly advice you on the precautions you need to follow while on holidaying and any medications if necessary.

2. Stay active and keep fit

Being active and fit while travelling whether it’s flying in the plane or driving on the road is very important. This can prove to be difficult. But one has to exercise some discipline, as a bit of exercise will help you stay active and provide numerous health benefits. Here are some tips:

3. Wash your hands

Get into the habit of washing your hands frequently, while travelling and on your holidays. This is especially important to do before eating, to protect you against possible germ contamination.

4. Plan your meals when away

If you're traveling for a day or two only, get a good healthy meal before you travel. This will give you enough energy for your travel, without having to rely on road stops for your meals. You also avoid the risk of eatning potentiall contaminated food. If you are traveling for a longer period of time, make a timetable on what to eat and when to eat. Cut back on alcoholic drinks and junk food and include a lot of fruits and vegetables in your diet.

5. Get enough sleep

Lack of sleep makes you overeat, cause dizziness, makes you sluggish and affects your mood. Aim for a minimum eight hours per day sleep and if necessary take power nap in the afternoon. After all, you're on a holiday!

Drinking water provides many health benefits, which is very important on your holidays when you are more active and spend more time in hot temperatures.

6. Drink plenty of water

To avoid a dehydration especially in the summer, get into a habit of drinking plenty of water. A glass of fruit juice in the morning with breakfast is fine. But overall avoid fruit juices and especially soft drinks, as they contain a lot of sugar and calories. Fiyyz drinks in particular can harm your health.

7. Bring emergency pack

Carry a travel emergency pack with you always while holidaying. The travel emergency pack should include pain-relievers, sun-screen, Band-Aids, cotton-pads, your necessary medications, etc.

8. Skip buffet lunches

Many hotels offer complimentary champagne, holiday snacks, heavy meals, holiday cookies or the special buffet lunches in the hotel. If you are attending those events you will be accumulating high calorie meals in your diet. So, try to skip those events. Choose healthy alternatives instead.

9. Relax and de-stress

Find different ways to relax and destress. Take time for yourself and indulge in any kind of spa treatments or massage therapies to relax your mind and soul. And most importantly make time for yourself to meditate at least 5 minutes in a day as it keeps your mind peaceful.

Remember to bring your summer attire and your sun protection,
if you plan to sunbake at your holiday destination.

10. Dress up appropriately

Last thing to keep in mind is your comfort when travelling. Decide what to wear and choose light clothes to keep you comfortable and relaxed. Be also mindful of the weather at your chosen holiday destination and bring appropriate clothes. This will help you reduce unplanned expenses, or a visit to the doctor if you don't dress up appropriate to the travel location.

By properly following the above tips for staying healthy, one can enjoy the holiday season to its fullest. With this in mind, any medical condition that requires treatment during your vacation in any of the European Union country should be covered by your medical insurance. However, always make arrangements for private travel insurance, too.
