Healthy All-Season Travel Tips

Healthy All-Season Travel Tips

Healthy travel tipsHuman being’s constant desire for exploring new places and getting different kinds of experiences has continued to increase over the years. It is a natural thing to want to have a vacation in an exotic foreign country and indeed this can be the adventure of a lifetime.

In order to make the most out of it and take only pleasurable memories back home, you have to prepare for the vacation as best as you can.

If you are like most of us who are always concerned about our health, then, taking care of all the basics when it comes to keeping your fitness in check will really allow you to enjoy your holiday to the fullest.

After you choose the destination for your trip, you should go and have a medical check-up. I recommend finding a doctor that specializes in travel. This is required primarily because you might need specific precautions against different types of diseases. It is not healthy to believe that it is only necessary to take an immunization only if you are going to a place with tropical climate or an underdeveloped area. With the global pandemics, you should really do your best to stay healthy during your trip. Your medical exam will help to show if there’s any problem that requires treatment before you leave so that you do not encounter any problem when you are away from your home.

In a more detailed approach, below is a step to step guide for healthy traveling abroad tips:

  1. Before you decide on your destination, please read the CDC website for advisories. Safety and disease prevention are the most basic elements of health! Travel and health insurance abroad are available too, make sure to secure both before leaving home. If you are doing specific sports, check insurance needs for those sports.
  2. Know before you go. Check out HappyCow.com for your destination and read the restaurant and healthy food store reviews for your area!
  3. Know before you go. Call your hotel and ask if there is a gym and/or pool.  Ask if they know any local trails.
  4. Know before you go. Get a travel guide for your destination and look online for hikes, scenic streets, famous walks, etc.  You can also look for a gym or recreational center.
  5. Know before you go. Weather! Check the weather and make sure to bring weather-appropriate clothing like rain coats or heavy coats if needed.  Hotels may have umbrellas that you can borrow so ask them when you call there.
  6. What season is it where you’re going? Are they known for outdoor sports like snowboarding, skiing, or SCUBA diving?
  7. Bring a reusable water bottle, so you can fill it when you pass security and stay hydrated during your flight and throughout your trip.
  8. Stay moving. Get up once an hour to make sure you’re circulating your body.  Stretch if there is a common area.
  9. Bring a backpack so you can walk more during your entire adventure.
  10. Foot maintenance! Take care of your pedicure, etc. before you go so you can walk and walk and walk.

 

While flowing along with the excitement and anticipation new adventures bring, remember to learn more about your destination country and its cultural traditions, social customs and regulations. Usually, what is considered a perfectly normal behavior in your country might be offensive and rude in your destination place. Respecting the local way of life, religious and political views, and the law is of great importance for having a fun filled vacation. For example running around in a bathing suit might be fine at the beach, but inappropriate to wear in a supermarket.

The suggestions in this article will guide you through everything you need as you plan to live a healthy lifestyle before and after you get to your destination!

Oscar Awards Fittest Actors

Award Winning Workouts – the Fitness That the Stars Are Wearing This Year

Award Winning Workouts – The Fitness that the Stars are Wearing This Year

Disclaimer:  Please check with your medical professional before making any changes to your diet or workout/exercise routine.

The Oscar for the fittest female/male actor goes to…

Illuminated on the red carpet every year looking amazing in their Dolce & Gabana or Versace, are the stars. It’s not just the fashion we observe, but often we see muscle tone, perfect posture and great physiques that movie stars work and train hard for.

What’s their secret? How can mere mortals like you and I benefit and use that for long term fitness success?

We can probably find some part of their workout that we can safely adapt to our own.

Exercise is essential to everyone!

For the record, I don’t endorse any specific celebrity workout. In fact, it can be difficult to duplicate a celebrity workout simply because they are customized for that person. Also, every celebrity has at least one, if not several trainers. They also have stylists, chefs, and wellness experts that help them to look their best. You and I might not be able to do it all, but we can probably find some part of their workout that we can safely adapt to our own.  These workouts are presented because they are great workouts for accomplishing what the stars need and I like these actors.

Hollywood actors can gain muscle, lose weight, gain weight, lose weight again etc. just to fit the role they are playing. It is not recommended to change your body so quickly without medical supervision.

Salma Hayek

Salma HayekThere are few people in the world today that are a lovely as Salma Hayek. Not only is she beautiful, but she always seems to be a genuinely nice person. She usually dresses simply and understated, allowing her smile and her body to be the focus of attention.

There are few people in the world today that are a lovely as Salma Hayek. Not only is she beautiful, but she always seems to be a genuinely nice person. She usually dresses simply and understated, allowing her smile and her body to be the focus of attention.

According to an article in SHAPE, Ms. Hayek’s workout is simple and effective. Push-ups, jump squats, and planks are the basis, keeping her overall body lean. For her arms, a problem area for many women, she does tricep dips. She also does total body sit-ups that really work her core.

Her cardio is kickboxing, dancing, and ball workouts. Everything is designed to be fun, quick, and easy. The 49-year old actress has an amazing body (note: she’s only 5’2”) by focusing on her core. Most of her exercises, including the plank and the sit ups, require no equipment and are easily done at home or on the road. No gym required. Continue reading

Your Personal Healthy Lifestyle Inventory – 2016 and Beyond

Your personal healthy lifestyle inventory 2016 download

Each and every day is an opportunity for self-improvement.

Doing a personal inventory of our healthy lifestyle can be vital. Each year, or even more often, everyone should put together a list of what has worked and what hasn’t in their quest for optimal fitness and health.

Here are ten reasons why you need to do a personal healthy lifestyle inventory regularly:

  1. You will know what worked for you – You will be able to look at your list and see where your best successes were.
  2. You’ll know what didn’t work for you – Knowing what isn’t great is as important as knowing what is.
  3. You can figure out what you really enjoyed – You will be able to see exactly which activities you really enjoyed. (The more you like, the more you will do it.)
  4. You’ll know what you loathed – Knowing what you really disliked doing will save you from doing it again.
  5. You can figure out what was unsafe – You can figure out what you did that was uncomfortable or caused pain. Remembering what hurt you can prevent injuries in the future.
  6. You can match up things that you like – You might like smoothies and spin classes. Those are the things that you can focus on in the future.
  7. You can plan more fun in your fitness – A list of your favorite things can help turn fitness into fun.
  8. You can set goals based on what works – Great goals are key to success. By using what works and what we like, we can get to our goals much faster.
  9. Your goals may include travel and you can start planning – If you decide that long hikes on New Zealand’s mountains are in order, you can start planning your trip now.
  10. You can plan ahead to succeed – Setting achievable goals that involve pleasant activities can virtually guarantee our success.

How to Get Rid of Post Summertime Blues

summer bluesI love summer! Inhaling the scent of suntan lotion, while feeling the warmth of the sun shining on me and listening to the Beach Boys, my toes in the sand. If you love summer, you know what a bummer it is when it ends. Oh, the heat, the fruit and the beach, ah!

When the cool air of fall starts creeping in, we have to change modes quickly. If we were working out in water, at an outdoor or seasonally heated pool for example, we may have to change that up.

How can we extend our summer fun feelings and prevent the post-summertime blues? Continue reading

Summer Diet and Exercise Tips

1. Take more walks

With warmer days, morning and evening bring nice opportunities to walk outside more.  Don’t forget to bring along some water

2. Try Aquatic Fitness!

Find your local indoor or outdoor pools.  Change it up and workout in the pool! Remember you still have to hydrate even in an inside pool.  Outside pools of course require hats and sunscreen.

3. Hello Hydration!

Your body loses water when you sweat!  Summer makes us sweat more, so to prevent dehydration, which can cause cramping, we have to be more mindful of hydration. Continue reading

Harvesting Honey Can Be Harm-Free for the Honeybee

Bee collecting pollen on flowers

 

We need to protect bees.

Bees need a Public Relations Department for several reasons:

  • Bees sting.
  • Bees are tiny.
  • Bees don’t have a fan club because they sting.
  • People kill bees because they sting.
  • People kill and remove bee hives. (It’s amazing to me that people still have hives removed, poisoned and killed today, when bees can be removed and relocated.)
  • Bees are bugs and people don’t like bugs.
