You love to travel but are you wary of being sick in those foreign lands? You just have to take some precautionary measures and follow some basic tips and you can make your travel a wholesome experience that remains memorable and illness free.
If you are leaving for a place that has been known to have had instances of epidemic or viral diseases in the past, then it will be a good idea to get yourself vaccinated before you leave for your destination. You can rest assure that your immune system will pick up from the vaccine and prevent any ailments.
Basic hygiene is a must. Keep a hand sanitizer with you and always wash your hands before and after eating; using the sanitizer is a must. If you use computers a lot, then ensure that your hands are clean because the keyboards can be as dirty as the door knobs and these are breeding grounds for germs.
Eating right and eating adequate are both important. Do not forget to include fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet to make sure that there is a daily dosage of fresh fruits and vegetables for your system.
In case the place is new and the food items are unknown, seek the advice of a local on what is healthy and what is not, and choose your meals accordingly.
Resting your body is very important. When you rest the body calms down and the maintenance of the worn parts starts automatically. The worn off cells are recreated and the immunity system also gets strengthened. Also, if there has been a change in the time zones, then adequate rest always helps the body to adjust to the local daylight time.
One of the most important things is to keep your body hydrated. Constant water supply in the body not only keeps the skin and the body parts in good condition, but also ensures that any toxins that might have entered the stomach get dissolved and there is a lesser chance of dehydration.
Avoid the water from the tap. It invariably will contain some germs and microbes that your body will not be attuned to and can pose serious sickness hazard.
