21 Jan Avoid getting sick while travelling
Travelling is a privilege, and it’s a lifetime dream for many people. It’s a chance to meet new people, see the world, embrace fresh opportunities, learn a new culture or language and perhaps relocate and live in a new country.
But with travelling and change comes many unknowns with a change of location and a change of routine.
Be mindful of your health and well-being and try not to get sick in a new place.
The Covid-19 pandemic swept the world but taught us some basic lessons, and perhaps this safe, hygienic mantra is the ‘new’ normal.
Covid-19 Preventive measures:
Get the necessary vaccinations.
Wash and rub hands thoroughly with soap and water for at least 20 seconds and keep unwashed hands away from the face
Cover coughs and sneezes in your sleeve or with a tissue (not your hand)
Use face masks or coverings in public settings to minimise the risk of transmissions.
Physical or social distancing at least 1.5m
Carry hand sanitiser and sanitise surfaces as you travel
Avoid handshakes and hugs
Tips to avoid getting sick when planning the next trip and while on that trip.;
Stay hydrated – carry a water bottle and drink lots of water
Get enough sleep when you are travelling
Be wise in the sun
Protect yourself from creepy crawlies
Pace yourself as a tourist, don’t do too many things in one day
Eat mindfully – it’s easy to say we are on holiday, so I can eat and drink whatever I want, but it soon catches up with you and disrupts your digestive system and overall health
Rest and enjoy the moments, have fun and laugh!
Every morning we enjoy a nice mug of Indian Masala Chai.
With the many spices in Chai, the most prominent ingredient is freshly grated ginger, cardamom, cinnamon and cloves – these ingredients will undoubtedly keep the doctor away!
