Given are ways to stay healthy while you are traveling.
Order veggies, cur the meat
Eat veggies when you can! Pick healthier options when dining out. Choose a vegetarian dish or add a salad to balance your meal. You can also buy your own veggies or ready-made salad from the grocery store.
Eat plenty of fruit
Buy fruit at the grocery store and eat them for breakfast or as healthy snacks throughout the day. Bananas, apples, and oranges can be found virtually in any grocery store in the world.
Make your own meals
Of course, you didn’t come halfway around the world to eat your own cooking. BUT if you’re going on a somewhat long trip or want to eat well, this is definitely not a bad idea as eating out everyday may not be the healthiest.
Use hand sanitizer
This comes in handy when water and soap aren’t available, which can happen quite frequently when traveling. You’ve been walking all day and coming into contact with people, things, doors, etc. and the last thing you want to do is eat with dirty hands. Prevent the spread of germs and bacteria by cleaning your hands, especially before or after a meal.
Take your vitamins
It can be difficult to eat a healthy balanced meal with all the essential vitamins when traveling so take your daily multi-vitamins to supplement your meals.
Protect your skin
Protect your skin from being outdoors by wearing sunscreen with minimum SPF 15. Reapply every two hours if you can. If you’re visiting an area with a large population of mosquitoes and insects, be sure to wear insect repellent to prevent bites.
Do your research
When traveling to a foreign country, it’s important to do your research and know the risks before you go. You can check warnings and advisories with your country’s government website, visit the tourism board of the country you are visiting and check out blogs or even social media for up to date information.
Visit a medical clinic before traveling
If you visit a travel medical clinic before your trip, your doctor will be able to give you the proper injections and prescribe the medicine that you will need in case of an emergency.
