4 Tips for a Healthy Summer Vacation

By Donna Stark

Are you ready for a vacation? If you've been itching with the travel bug and can't wait to hit the road or hop aboard a flight, join the club! There are millions of us packing our bags right alongside you. And while some of us just want to sit by the pool, eat nachos, and not move a muscle for the duration of the trip, others are committed to sticking with their daily fitness routine. No matter which group you decide you want to be in though, you'll be happy to know there are simple ways to ensure your summer vacation is as healthy as it can be. Take a look at the following suggestions from your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic.

Bring Healthy Snacks

Regardless of how you travel, you may find that it is a challenge to find healthy snacks, so be sure to pack your own. Eating healthier snacks, such as sliced fruit, nuts, sandwiches, and water along the way will help regulate your blood sugar level and stabilize your moods.

Stay Hydrated

Whether you are vacationing at the beach, mountains, or abroad, water will always be essential. Make sure you stay hydrated by drinking the recommended amount every day. Here are some tips that will make it easy to do so.

  • Drink a tall glass of water as soon as you wake up and before you go to bed
  • Carry a reusable water bottle throughout the day
  • Infuse your water with fruit to make it more appealing
  • Choose water over any other beverage at restaurants
  • Eat plenty of water-rich foods, such as watermelon, citrus, and cucumbers

Pack Workout Clothes

You will be more likely to engage in physical activities if you pack for it, so don't forget to bring a pair of sneakers and some workout clothes. Try to plan at least one physical activity each day. Rent some bikes, explore the local area, replace sunbathing with swimming, or dance the night away. By hiding your exercise in fun adventures, you won't mind working out while on vacation!

Get Your Sleep

Even though you may be tempted to stay up later than normal while on vacation, it is vital that you give your body the rest it needs. Try to remain consistent with your sleep routine so you can be sure to have enough energy for the next day's events. Adequate sleep will also boost your immune system, which is a necessary benefit to have while on vacation!

Have Fun

The main goals of your vacation are to relax and have fun, but don't forget to take care of yourself in the process. You definitely will want to feel your best so you can get the most out of your time away from home!
