When you plan your vacation, make sure you enjoy every minute of it. Being physically fit is the first step to enjoying a relaxing holiday. Here is how you can stay fit and live it up at the same time:
Before your trip, have a talk with your doctor about your travel medications and any immunizations you might need. Discuss any dietary precautions you need to take and ask for emergency tips. Take your doctor’s consent before undertaking a new exercise program. Start off with a healthy diet and try to sample the food you might encounter on your trip. Be sure to inform your airlines and tour operators about your dietary preferences well in advance. Stay hydrated during your journey by drinking plenty of water. Sunburn can ruin a vacation; be sure to carry a sunscreen lotion or cream with you. Test your sunscreen lotion to make sure it does not irritate your skin and carry your sunglasses and a sunhat if possible.
Wear comfortable walking shoes while traveling; remember that you will also need them for exploring places when you reach your destination. Be prepared for uneven surfaces, it is good to practice walking on different surfaces like gravel and sidewalks. If you have trouble with your balance, consult your doctor for some balance exercises and consider buying a cane to use on your trip. Deep vein thrombosis is a serious concern on long haul flights as it causes blood clots in arms and legs. During your flight, walk around the cabin and do some stretching exercises. To avoid lifting heavy bags, pack light and distribute items between bags, be sure to carry a smaller, lighter carry-on bag.
Go ahead and enjoy your holiday in USA, but do not neglect your fitness, your body will thank you for it.
