Traveling requires a lot of planning for all to go the best way possible. However there´s always a subject that we don´t usually pay too much attention: our health.
That´s why we share with you these 10 tips to take care your health during your trip:
¡Before the expected journey!
1. Investigate about your destination.
This is the first step to know what considerations and type of clothing you need to wear. For example knowing if you can drink water from the pipe or not, food considerations, where`s the nearest hospital from the place you are staying.
2. Get a doctor’s appointment.
You can evaluate your physical state (in case there´s some physical activity on your destination), besides you can learn what precautions you must have on your destination.
3. Buying travel insurance.
A travel insurance can save you from a big spending in case you have to visit a hospital or even when the airline lost your luggage.
4. Pack according to your destination.
Not just as clothes matters, but buying pills and medicines (against muscular pains, flues, nausea, any illness that may affect you during your trip).
5. Check if the place you are going requires a special vaccine to visit.
Every countries embassy`s has this kind of information. With a short visit or phone call they can confirm this or any other question you may have.
¡During your trip!
6. Don´t exceed with alcoholic beverages and food.
You are in a new place, where you nearly don´t know anybody, don´t put yourself in a vulnerable situation like this.
7. Use always insects repellent.
Avoid nasty burns (especially in sunny destinations), sickness or allergic reactions transmitted by mosquito bites.
8. Keep in mind your medical history for the activities you will be doing.
For example if you have a delicate stomach don´t try very exotic or spice food.
9. Keep yourself hydrated.
Not only to avoid dehydration, but to boost your energy and keep your defenses strong.
10. Stay alert on the signals your body is giving you.
Strange pains, dizziness and generally irregular sensations can be a clue that something is not entirely right with you.
Once you get home and the days after, put attention to any strange felling you may have. Sometimes some sickness and reactions take a couple of days to manifest.
