Hot summers come vacations and at that time of the year where everybody is out travelling. In the Holiday Season, we typically see a lot of family bonding, making memories with friends and partners, sightseeing in all sorts of weathers, be it chilly hills or the sunny beaches. One important aspect that is neglected is health, the sudden change of weather, eating in hotels, processed food, stress etc can take a toll on your health.
It is necessary to take certain precautions
- NEVER SKIP BREAKFAST
This is an essential tip to remain healthy even when you are not travelling, Due to the schedule or pure laziness, it is very common for people to skip breakfast and just catch a heavy lunch, which not only weighs you down but also makes you less energetic.
- DRINK YOUR WATER
Dehydration is a common thing tourists suffer with. Also, it is essential that you carry your own water bottle and fill it only in places that have pure drinking water.
- TRY OUT THE FARMER’S MARKET
If you’re travelling abroad, you can easily spot gluten free options and fresh foods. If you’re prepping your own meals what better way to add the healthiest ingredients?
- GET YOUR VITAMIN D
The morning sun is the best way to get some Vitamin D and alleviate mood. However it is essential to put sunscreen atleast 15 minutes before stepping out, and reapplying every 3-4 hours.
- PACK HEALTHY SNACKS
Whenever we travel we just keep buying things on the way, which could spoil our health as we might be loading up on processed foods with preservatives even though marketed as a healthy option. Try packing items like nuts, flaxseeds, dry fruits which are not messy and can be easily carried in handbags. Some other great options are makhana (foxnuts), low sugar energy bars and trail mixes (popcorn, pretzels, nuts, chocolate )
