Have you ever felt that you need another vacation right after coming back from a trip? It’s really depressing when the time spent travelling turns out to be stressful, especially if you get sick while away. Of course, you try to reduce this risk by getting inoculations and otherwise protecting yourself from harmful bacteria. We can share a few more tricks that would help you stay healthy while travelling.
Snack on safe things only
Trying street food is a popular way to ‘get the taste’ of a new culture, but it’s also a huge risk. When travelling to exotic countries, you should only buy food from reliable vendors, so it’s best to stock up on snacks that you are 100% sure of. Those can be fruits, granola bars, etc. Taking them with you when you go out exploring will also help you save some money, as street snacks in popular tourist spots are often expensive.
Eat two healthy meals a day
Vacation is the time when we let ourselves go, which is a good thing because you really need to relax. However, junk food or some deep-fried new dishes, polished with numerous cakes and desserts, and flavoured with alcohol make for a very bad diet. If you eat like this even for a week, you may develop digestive problems, like bloating or constipation. These experiences would definitely ruin your cheerful mood and can cause serious problems while you are away on an adventure. To prevent them, be sure to get a healthy, well-balanced breakfast and at least a serving of salad for lunch. Enjoy some slacking off the healthy food routine during the dinner only.
Carry a tube of sanitising gel everywhere and use it
You need to sanitise your hands every time after using public transport, touching rails, etc. You can’t be too careful when it comes to killing off harmful bacteria. Note, some recent studies show that non-alcoholic sanitising gels are inefficient, so buy one that has a high alcohol content. As it will make the skin of your hands dry, consider using a moisturising cream alongside it.
Draw up a manageable itinerary
Very often, we have only short vacations while there are so many incredible things to see in the place you visit. However, ‘overstuffing’ your day with tours, museum visits, etc. would make you so tired, you won’t be able to enjoy your trip fully. Think of how much excitement you can really manage when planning your adventure and create an itinerary that will include both active and rest periods. This way, you’ll come back home buzzed with energy.
