It is the time of year when many people are preparing for a restful vacation. Perhaps you are heading off to see the grandkids, or your whole family is taking a cruise. No matter what the activity, vacations are no reason to give up on healthy living. Here are few tips to help you stay healthy while on vacation.
Wash your hands often.
Take vitamin C or Echinacea. Echinacea is a popular herbal supplement used to boost immunity.
Dink lots of water. If you travel abroad, consider bottled water.
Take long walks everyday, use the stairs when possible, or use the hotel fitness room.
Limit fast food.
Pack healthy snacks likes dried fruit, healthy crackers, or nuts.
If you are driving, take breaks every few hours.
Find a famers market near you. Pick up some fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, pretzels and popcorn that can serve as snacks or a breakfast alternative during your stay.
Always select a sit down restaurant. Order dressing on the side. Try local cuisine or fish.
Share your meals around the table. Serving sizes at standard restaurants can easily feed two people.
Turn off the IPad and TV news for a few days. Try reading a book.
Limit the use of alcohol.
Keep bed bugs away. Don’t store your clothes on the ground, use luggage racks; bed bugs do no climb.
According to travel experts these are the top vacation spoilers: overeating, dehydration, hangovers, overspending, and getting sunburned. Try to stick to your normal sleep schedule and, bring your own pillow with you if possible.
