Tips to care for your health while you travel
As the coronavirus pandemic's efforts have reduced all over the world, there is a high chance that several people want to explore various parts of the globe during the summer holidays. If you plan to travel solo or go on a business tour or have family time in a beautiful location, here are some tips to stay healthy while enjoying the tour.
1) Take several short naps in your journey:
If you plan to go by road or rail or air, you will surely get a lot of time to stay seated. Utilize the time to take short naps in your travel period. This will help you to stay fresh and energetic once you reach your destination. If the environment is too noisy to handle, you can put on your earplugs or carry a scarf to tie on your head covering your eyes and ears as well. This will help you get an undisturbed sleep or naps while on the tour.
2) Carry items that help you manage common health issues:
So, if you are someone who gets a cold if sitting on AC for a long period, you can carry a eucalyptus oil bottle with you. You can apply a few drops of the same on your handkerchief and also keep it near your nose and eyes as it will give you a soothing effect. You can carry some medicines for cold, headache, acidity, etc. if you are aware that these will occur due to your tight travel schedule and eating outside food. You can even carry jeera and sauf to be taken at regular intervals as they are good in helping digestion.
3) Avoid eating junk food:
Eating local food at a local restaurant that is visited by many people is far better than munching on pizzas and burgers at the top restaurants. Junk food is never good for health and if you get that craving to eat them, you can eat a few slices of the same as a top-on to your regular meals. Do not replace junk food with your regular meals that you have during breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can stop by a few places to drink tea or coffee but not roadside ones as you never know their quality of food and how it can impact your immunity.
4) Stop the travel period if you think you had enough:
You might have earlier planned to visit 5 places in a span of two days. But if you think your health is giving up once you have reached the second or third place itself, you can stop the journey and take a break. You can book a hotel nearby and take a rest for the second day and return back. It is always good to travel as much as we can than making your health suffer and spoiling the travel memories after you are back.
Consult a medical professional if your health issues are quite serious. You never know what may strike you once you reach another place. So, it is always better to consult your family doctor on the phone and share with him or her whatever is happening to your health during the journey.
