Travelling healthy isn't hard!...
Posted on 09 August 2018
We all know travelling is awesome! But sometimes it can be stressful and detrimental to our health if we are not conscious of it. Here are 10 TOP tips for you to stay healthy while you’re on your adventure!
The most important thing to be mindful of when you’re travelling is your sleep! Your body needs rest. Especially after possibly crossing time-zones, carrying around luggage and walking all-day! So, get plenty of rest and listen to your body!
#2. PACE YOURSELF.
Take it easy! It isn’t a race! You will be able to see many things and with great depth without rushing and pushing yourself. Plan your itinerary to space things out and give yourself time to enjoy certain locations! You’ll also get to know the area more instead of just being able to say that you’ve “been there” but that you've actually "been there". Be active and roam, but don’t overdo it and be sure to take plenty of breaks in between.
Do you have a long day ahead of you? Dedicate at least 5-10 minutes to stretch out your body. You will feel refreshed and ready to go on your travel adventure! You could also stretch before you sleep! This will make your muscles much more relaxed and your sleep will definitely be that much better!
#4. AND EXERCISE!
Exercise is essential to maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Well, just because you’re travelling doesn’t mean you can’t exercise! Take a jog around some beautiful, unfamiliar but unique areas. If you’re unable to do so you could always choose to exercise from your accommodation. You will undoubtedly feel GREAT from it!
#5. EAT BREAKFAST
It’s the most important meal of the day for a reason - it gives you the energy to start your day right. During your travels, you will need this energy! After your breakfast, you will feel balanced and refreshed enough to continue your travel adventure!
#6. STAY HYDRATED
Water is the elixir of life! Always carry a bottle of water along with you and drink your water regularly! If you have plenty to do, you will need plenty of water too!
#7. DRINK WISELY!
Stay away from sweet drinks and alcohol if you’re looking to stay absolutely healthy! But if you are to indulge away, do so wisely and in moderation!
#8. USE SUNBLOCK
Protecting your skin is important when you are outdoors, so apply that sunscreen with a minimum SPF 15. Reapply every two hours if you can. And if you’re visiting an area with a large population of mosquitoes and insects, be sure to wear insect repellent to prevent bites.
#9. WET WIPES AND SANITIZER
Sometimes our hands get dirtied with no access to soap. So carry along wet wipes or hand sanitizers to prevent any unwanted illnesses and bacteria!
#10. YOU ARE WHAT YOU EAT!
Eating plenty of fruit and vegetables will keep you healthy and feeling rejuvenated to keep going during your travel adventure! So eat clean and even consider making your own food. Of course, going to new places would mean you should definitely try some new and authentic cuisine but making your own food will be a good and healthy option for you to watch what you eat!
It could be an eye-opening and fun experience to go grocery shopping and observe the local produce in a foreign place. And when you’ve made your delicious meal, you could even bring your loved ones along with you on a gorgeous picnic outdoors!
