Whether you’re headed on a ski trip, escaping the cold or travelling to visit family this holiday season, being prepared helps avoid those unexpected bumps in the road. Here are some tips to keep you and your family happy and healthy during your holiday adventures.
1. Don’t forget your documents
Before hitting the road, double check you’ve got your passport, itinerary, booking references, insurance forms and bag tags. Airports are known to be wild during the holidays and misplaced bags are a common issue. Keep an online backup of your documents, so you can easily access them no matter where you are.
2. Stay hydrated
Between all the holiday activities and excitement, maintaining proper hydration is usually the last thing on your list. We often forget that drinking water is such an important (yet simple) habit to keep us feeling our best. Save on the sugary drinks when you can and opt for a tall, cold glass of water instead. Your body will thank you later.
3. Bring RestoraLAX NeatPAX with you
Experiencing constipation when travelling is common and can put a damper on your holiday if you aren’t prepared. Change of environment, different foods and lack of movement while in transit are some of the causes of traveller’s constipation. RestoraLAX NeatPAX are an easy way to restore your body’s natural rhythm since they come in convenient travel size packets. Just dissolve it into your favourite hot or cold drink – there’s no grit or taste*!
4. Ride the wave
Figuratively or literally, your choice! A holiday is just that, a holiday. Leave the stresses at home and go with the flow no matter what you have planned. Try making a list of things you’d like to do as opposed to an hour by hour agenda, this way you can focus on having a good time and not on sticking to a strict schedule.
5. Wear SPF
It doesn’t matter if you’re hitting the slopes or the beach, protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays is so important. While the sun is weaker during the winter months it can still damage your skin and leave you with an unexpected sun burn. Don’t worry, you can enjoy your much-needed dose of Vitamin D in a healthy way!
6. Put down your phone
We are constantly consumed by today’s technology. This holiday, challenge yourself to unplug and focus on living in the present with your friends and family. Disconnecting from our digital lives is a great way to reduce stress and foster quality bonding time with our loved ones.
