Summers are here and with the sun shining bright on our heads and the mercury levels rising to a good 45 degree Celsius, we know that it’s here to stay. The month of May has started and that marks the month of final exams or summer break. The kids are already gearing up for an adventurous summer break but here’s what we think. Why not plan a summer holiday with family this year? Sending them off to a summer camp may seem like an ideal option but why send the kids away when you can plan and enjoy this adventure with them.
Summer is all about reunions, family, adventure and bonding. In our opinion travelling to a new place or visiting your hometown can be a fun activity if you take the below steps in consideration before you zip those bags!
Exercise! Exercise! Exercise!
We cannot even begin to explain how important it is to stay active and fit before or during your travel. People often confuse the concept of relaxation with no exercise. Absolutely not! Every holiday requires you to be physically fit, it’s quite clear that either you will be hiking, swimming, driving for long hours, walking or even sight-seeing. You cannot perform any of the stated activities unless you are active and robust. Hence start exercising or go for long walks as it will help build your stamina and improve your mental and emotional well-being as well. Why pay for such an expensive holiday if you are come back exhausted and watch TV rest of the day.
Fruits, vegetables and fresh fruit juices is what we have in store for your diet chart this summer. Remember a bag of crisps and cola may seem the perfect snack but isn’t this what you snack on all year round. If you are visiting a new country or a new culture then why don’t you indulgence yourself in their seasonal fruits and juices? it will keep you from being dehydrated and will fit in your fitness plan.Remember you don’t need those bags under your eyes from excessive salt and sugar intake!
Remember it’s a “summer break”, the activities that you have planned for your holiday will require you come out in the sun for longer periods of time. It’s important to pack extra bottles of water with you at all times and take a fresh gulp of water from time to time to keep yourself hydrated and replenished. If you get dehydrated then in extreme situations there are chances of getting a heat stroke and fainting.
Pack Light And Wisely
While travelling it’s important to travel light and pack ONLY the most essential things otherwise you will have to spend most of the time worrying for your baggage other than enjoying your stay.
There is no such thing as a summer vacation without an SPF 30 at least. Invest in a good sunscreen and make it a habit of slathering it on your body before you head out in the sun to prevent skin problems and diseases in future.
