Even if the year 2019 has just started and summer is still months away, we can’t help but feel excited about this beautiful season. With all the exciting adventures one can enjoy every summer, we can’t help but fancy and plan a trip or two towards the beach.
However, it is also a time when lots of temptations go overboard, enticing us to wear those bikinis, drink cocktails, eat barbeques and ice cream and overdo our tans. While these may sound awesome, we should always remember to take care of ourselves amidst the fun and excitement.
Luckily, we’ve gathered the best travel tips for a healthy and enjoyable summer trip. Enjoy!
Grab Your Prescriptions and Visit Your Doctor
Some people tend to forget about refilling and bringing their medicines on their holiday trip which is a big no-no. Before going on a trip, make sure to check and see if you have enough of your prescribed pills, and bring more than enough just to be sure. Also, it’s best to make a doctor’s appointment so he can give you proper advice like regarding activities you can do safely and medications you may need to bring. He may even recommend a vaccine to make sure you don’t catch a disease that’s common in your travel destination.
While travelling and enjoying your getaway at the beach, make sure to keep yourself hydrated. Drinking lots of water in summer helps fuel your body and keeps your skin, hair lips from drying enabling you to enjoy activities longer. Enjoy those juices, fruit-infused water, fruits like watermelon or even yummy coconut juice for a healthy and tasty treat.
Don’t Forget to Reapply Sunscreen
Sunscreen works excellent in protecting your skin from the harsh rays of the sun. However, during the summer when the sun’s heat is so intense, and you enjoy long hours outside, it’s best to reapply your favourite sunscreen every three hours or as needed. Got sensitive skin? Go for a mineral-based one.
Wear a Rashie
Womens Rashies work great in protecting you from harmful UV rays and in preventing sunburns. However, these are not the only reasons to pack rashies on your trip. These also work great in keeping your skin soft, and your body warms all the while and lets you move with ease.
Ask Before Enjoying Your Food
Some people have extreme allergies on certain foods and ingredients. If you or your travel buddies have a food allergy or two, make sure to ask your server or tour guide the ingredients to make sure you don’t trigger an allergy attack. When staying at a hotel or while on a cruise, make sure to note this when booking the accommodation for your trip.
Disconnect with the Online World for a While
Putting your gadgets down and disconnecting from social media lets you enjoy the view, worry less, socialise more, enjoy more and savour the moment out of your usually busy world. Plus, it enables you to clear your mind and live for the moment which is essential for your mental health.
