While away you may be inclined to think more about your health. Being on holiday, basking in the sunshine, and wearing all of the summer clothing can often inspire you to put your health first. You may notice things like additional weight gain or the condition of your skin tone, because you are away from the normal day to day routine. So I thought I would share with you some of the ways you can take better care of your health and wellbeing while you are away. I hope it inspires you to do the same.
Have travel insurance
It may sound trivial, but it might be worth ensuring that before you travel you have the right level of travel insurance as an added protection. If anything were to happen to you while you were away, you can then assured that any costs incurred will be protected over the insurance policy you have in place. Even needing something like the international air ambulance or a hospital stay can be covered under travel insurance policies, which means that you get the level of care you need whilst in a foreign country.
Think about your skin
The sun is stronger most of the time when you head on holiday, and it can even be the incentive for your trip away. So it is vitally important to take care of your skin while you are away. It might be that you ensure you regularly top up the sunscreen and use a high factor, and it might also be wise to moisturize your skin at the end of the day to avoid skin peeling and drying out. Being away really highlights the condition of your skin, and the sun can actually help to clear out breakouts and spot prone skin. But it still needs to be protected.
Avoid drinking too much
We can all be guilty of drinking a little too much while we are away. We think that being on holiday, carefree with no commitments to our days entitles us to a cheeky drink or two. But be careful as sometimes the measures of spirits are bigger, and you may end up consuming more than you are used to. Combine that with the heat of the day and it can cause you to become under the influence very quickly. Leading to accidents happening or dehydration.
Drink plenty of water
On another note, dehydration is more common while you’re away whether you are consuming alcohol or not. The heat is causing you to perspire more and regulate your body temperature, so in turn you need to drink more in order to recoup the lost fluids. Keeping a bottle of water close by is essential and ensuring you drink plenty throughout the day and night to avoid getting dehydrated. It will help you to remain well and active while away and avoid any health issues that can be caused by dehydration.
I hope that these tips help you to take better care of your health on your next getaway to the sun!
