Prepare a drug box
While packing for summer travel you must prepare your drug box. It isn’t necessary that you will need it. But as they say, “Precaution is better than cure”. Your drug box may include an anti-inflammatory drug, anti-diarrhea drug, motion sickness drug. Antiseptic cream or lotion, band-aids and drugs for stomach upset are also a must. Once you have prepared yourself for this, you are good to go.
Keep Fit by Practicing Yoga
It is quite understandable that traveling hardly leaves you time to go about with your fitness routine. But, it takes only a few minutes of the day to give your body and mind the necessary break. No need to hit the gym, just 15-20 minutes of yoga a day will be enough to keep you healthy and happy throughout the duration of your vacation. Practice some easy poses like Trikonasana, adho mukha svanasana, Balasana, Malasana, Dandasana, etc. and stay rejuvenated and recharged all day long.
Hydrate yourself to the max
When we say hydrate yourself. It doesn’t necessarily mean with water. Of course, water is irreplaceable. So you can opt for bottled water or boiling water. If in any case these aren’t available, go for seasonal fruit juices. Any freshly made seasonal fruit juice will be as beneficial as water. You may also keep fruits with you that are juicier. The juicier the fruit is, more hydrated it is going to keep you. Avoid ice cubes if you can, try to keep water in containers that can keep it cold for long.
Don’t get yourself tanned
Yes, you were on a vacation. Show-off with your pictures, mark your locations, display the new stuff you bought from vacation. But don’t let your tan speak for you. You obviously spent a good amount on your travel. You wouldn’t want to spend the rest seeking skin care treatments from expensive spas. Taking care of your skin while traveling during the hot summer months is something one should never forget. Make sure you have enough sun protection cream or lotion for the body and face. Try and avoid going out in the afternoon. Even if you have to, wear eye gears, cover up your face with scarfs or visor cap.
Taste Local Delicacies but Always Keep a Lid on It
Vacation means indulging in some local delicacies, trying out new foods and satiating your taste buds with lip-smacking street foods. That’s part of the fun in fact. But, it is also important to keep a check on what you’re eating especially during the summers. A bit of cheat here and there away from your healthy routine is fine but don’t let it go beyond the limits. While traveling, it is always a good idea to keep some fresh fruits with you, some fruit juices, nuts, dates, etc. which are not only healthy but also takes care of your hunger pangs.
