Travelling has been one of the best leisure any person can do in his life. Whether local or abroad, nothing beats the pleasures that can be gained from it like being a stress reliever, an escape from busy and pressuring routines, and therapy for whatever going through. With these among reasons, this activity is always part of every individual’s dream, something that is always part of anyone's wish lists.
Unfortunately, despite having everything that’s needed to travel, unexpected circumstances occur that make either the long awaited travel have to be cancelled, postponed or restricted. Nowadays, the pandemic 2019 Novel Coronavirus Disease (CoViD-19) brings harm not only to the locals of every country, but also to those who traveled or those that plan to travel. With things such as issues of rebooking, refund and travel advisories and strict protocols to follow, airlines and travel sites provide essential information about this disease to encourage its visitors to educate and make themselves protected at all times.
Regardless if there is a CoVid-19 or any other disease and health-related issue, keeping ourselves healthy when travelling is a must. So, how can we achieve being healthy while travelling? Here are some tips:
Be an expert in packing your things.
One of the hassles in travelling especially at this time is to either a suitcase that is heavier than you, and a suitcase that is not suitable for travelling purposes. As much as putting everything there is something that should be done, being mindful of what to bring can surely make every traveler's life easier. Moreover, choosing the proper suitcase that can accommodate the must-haves should also be given attention to.
Sleep, sleep and sleep
For every activity that is expected in travelling, having a sufficient rest is important, and what can be the most effective way to do that but in sleeping? The body will suffer much if it has inadequate rest which will surely hinder from enjoying other things to do and places to go. How long does the rest have? It depends on what the body needs, so “listening” to your body is so important as well.
Keep yourself hydrated.
Wherever you go and whatever you do, do not forget to carry a water bottle with you. Drink sufficient water because after all, it is the source of your survival. Doing this will make your body love you more. Aside from the possible inconvenience in finding public restrooms, there will be less chance of hindrances to your to-do’s because of dehydration.
Doing stretches is another key.
Before doing what is listed on your travel planner, dedicate some time to do some stretches to achieve a great jump start on your day. A five to ten-minute stretch in the arms, legs, neck and shoulders will definitely pump you up and give you extra boost to make the most out of your daily activity. If you have a full day, stretches can be done during times you find yourself waiting, like for your breakfast and even in your vehicle. And do it also before bedtime to relax your muscles after your busy schedule.
