Healthy Travel Tips

Proper preparation, staying positive and using healthy travel tips is the recipe for unforgettable vacation. Whether you’re going to travel within your state or you’re going abroad for a significant period of time, use the Healthy Travel Tips I’m going to share below.

I’ve been traveling all around the world for more than a decade, and I’ve learnt much from these travels by trial and error. But you’re luckier – you can simply read the list of the tips to make your travel safe and pleasant :). So, here are some aspects you shouldn’t overlook when traveling:

#1 At Home

A bit of planning is very beneficial for your health: it will help you stay stress-free and relaxed during the trip. It doesn’t mean you should plan every minute – just make a simple blueprint of your travel in order not to do this at your arrival. In terms of health you can plan:

  • Getting inoculations (when going to the exotic regions).
  • Preparing your first aid kit. Fill it with the most urgent things you may need. These may include bandages, disinfectant solutions, cotton (for cuts, scratches), a neti pot for treating nasal problems (visit netipotby.com to learn the details), sunscreen, digestive tablets, etc.

#2 Abroad

Once you’re abroad I recommend you sticking to the following advice to stay healthy, energetic and positive. These are very simple and can quickly become a part of your routine:

  • Eat at home before leaving. Unless you’re going to try exotic dishes in local restaurants, I recommend you leaving with full tummy. Thus, you’ll be more focused on sightseeing than questing for cafes.
  • Avoid cheap takeaways. If you don’t want to get infected, prefer dining out in places with high hygiene levels.
  • Drink enough pure water. Dehydration makes us sluggish and tired. Prefer bottled water. In some countries avoid drinking and cooking using tap water.
  • Sleep well. To renew your energy during the trip you need to have enough sleep.
  • Stock up on healthy, rich snacks: bars, nuts and sandwiches. These will help you cope with hunger cravings attacks 🙂 on the go. Don’t be afraid of gaining extra pounds – when traveling your body ‘burns’ much more calories than in normal state.
  • Don’t take too many things with you. You can leave your unnecessary stuff in the hotel/hostel/elsewhere (left luggage room is also good). Don’t torture yourself carrying backbreaking backpacks.

#3 Stay Positive and Share Your Impressions With Friends

One of the most important factors influencing on the quality of your trip is the way you approach it. Don’t concentrate on negative aspects (which aren’t negative at all because it’s just the way you treat them 🙂 ). But focus on great, unforgettable moments of your trip. Remember to share those with friends and relatives. By the way, one of the greatest ways to learn more about the country you’re going to is to make friends (in advance or on the spot) with the locals. You’ll never forget this experience :). I can vouch for this.
