As the world keeps easing restrictions, especially after the Covid Pandemic and people are getting more comfortable booking flights again, I am sure everyone wants to have some good old fun traveling and going on vacations. This period would be a great time and one would be devastated not to participate in the activities either your family or friends are doing.
Follow COVID-19 Safety Guidelines
Before you head on to your trip, you should ensure you are safe from Covid by at least making sure you travel when you are vaccinated, that is, two weeks after the final dose. Also, make sure you always wear a face mask, especially in public. Make sure you get a Covid-19 test before traveling and you can get the best recommendations from the CDC site. Also, please get to know the high-risk destinations to avoid them.
Get Enough Sleep
People get unwell on trips because they run themselves dry by not sleeping and get tired. This is a recipe for disaster as it attracts stress which can then affect your immune system. Therefore, make sure you adjust your sleeping routine if you are traveling in different time zones to have enough sleep.
A dehydrated body is a tired and dizzy body that will hinder you from enjoying your travel. Also, when you are hydrated, the body wards off germs and infections while keeping the nasal passages moist. Without the moisture in your nasal passages and throat in the form of mucus, germs may not be trapped effectively.
Be Careful What You Eat or Drink
Traveler’s diarrhea, among other diseases, can cause a riot in your vacationing routine. So it is wise to check what you eat by especially visiting the CDC site and checking out the notorious food for causing foodborne illnesses. The NYU Family Medicine Center may also guide on the same.
Wash and Sanitize Your Hands
Wash and sanitize your hands for at least 20 seconds to ensure you remain safe from germs that you may have gotten from handling things many people might have touched, such as door handles and handrails.
Always prepare before your trip and carry the essential items that can help you when you feel unwell. These things include painkillers, medications, and repellent. Also, make sure your immunizations are up to date and you are duly vaccinated according to your destination.
