The best education I have ever received is through travel, but traveling is not always as glamorous as it seems.
Traveling to different places always feels amazing but it can also prove to be stressful and detrimental to us if not planned in a proper way. In order to enjoy the traveling experience you need to prepare yourself physically and mentally, it’s important to keep the healthy essentials handy to save you from health hazard.
There are few pointers on healthy essentials that need to be taken care of in order to have safe and incredible holidays.
First and foremost thing that you need to do before starting your holiday planning is to do some research, if you are visiting the place for the first time then it’s important to have the basic idea of what to expect. What is the behavior of the locals, crime rate, water born diseases, etc?
A well-researched travel plan is going to mark your vacation a great success.
Get Good Sleep
The most important thing that you should be concentrating on your vacation plan is sound and deep sleep. Understand this, you are on a vacation to relax your body and a vacation should be a recreational trip for your body.
Supplement yourself with the melatonin to recover your body from jet lag and to have some deep relaxation, melatonin is a natural hormone that assists in regulating the sleep cycle and helps the body in achieving sound and proper sleep.
Eat Plenty Of Fruits
Consuming fruit is a great source of vitamins and fibers. Most of the citrus fruits help in body’s detoxification and improving the immune system like oranges and blueberries are a great source of vitamin C that helps in protecting the body from common flu.
Additionally, consuming fruits also help in keeping a good distance from consuming unhealthy junk food as well.
You are on holiday and your whole routine has changed, your eating pattern has changed, it’s important to supplement your body with some healthy essential good bacteria to keep digestion going perfectly fine.
Healthy Nuts Or Snack To Eat Anytime
You are in a different place and there can be an instance where you could not find anything to eat, or you might find yourself stuck in the situation where you don’t have access to food.
Carrying some healthy snacks or protein bars can come into rescue.
Learn How To Eat Healthily
Learning to eat healthily is a lifestyle, and its good to follow a healthy diet while on holidays as well.
We understand that you are on holiday and you are on alcohol only diet, but you can opt for healthy snacks instead of consuming pounds of that deeply fried chicken legs.
When it comes to listing about the healthy essentials, staying hydrated should be your top priority.
Your body sweat more when you are on holidays because of the physical work you do like traveling, walking, playing some sports. It’s important to take care of your body’s hydration.
Opt to drink mineral water or smart water that can reestablish your body’s depleted electrolytes.
Workout While Travel
It’s the best thing you want to do on holidays, you are on a vacation to rehabilitate your body and mind, carry some lightweight exercise gears.
Vacations should not be always about alcohol and parties, your main focus should be about self-love.
You have 24 hours in a day and you are not required to spend 10 hours at your office, instead of spending those hours sleeping in your hotel room try spending them wisely.
Spend some self-pampering time, give your body some restorative time.
When it comes to planning a first date with a prospective partner it is often a decision that comes down to picking between booking a place at an expensive restaurant, going to a bar or taking them to dinner and to see a romantic movie at the local cinema.
These choices are all great but the big issue for a healthy-eating or diet-conscious individual is that most of these experiences result in an unhealthy eating experience. Going to the town’s most expensive restaurant will often deliver food laden in calories. Attending a bar or pub will result generally in the consumption of a fair few drinks and that is never good for the waistline whilst heading to the cinema normally results in sharing a family size bucket of popcorn.
So, what are dating options do you have if you are keen to impress but not looking to compromise your diet or lifestyle, below are two things I think you can consider:
Cook at home
Let’s be honest, the aim of a first date should be to spend as much time getting to know the other person as humanly possible. By offering to cook them a dinner at your home, the benefits are three-fold. Firstly, you will be able to spend time conversing without interruption. Your focus will be entirely on listening without distraction and your eye contact will be great which will leave a lasting impression. Secondly, by showing you can cook a meal you will earn instant brownie points. Who doesn’t like a man or woman who can cook? Finally, by cooking at home you can control what goes into the food and limit calories. You can make the meal as healthy or unhealthy as you wish, it is all up to you!
Go for a date outside
As society has continued to evolve into a more health-conscious entity, people are constantly searching for more outdoor date ideas in order to impress but also provide their body with some fresh air and sun. There are companies out there that provide fitness dates for couples where you can do a workout, get a boost in energy whilst at the same time bonding and getting to know the other person better. If that sounds too intense, maybe just suggest going for a long walk through downtown, you can burn some calories, chat for hours uninterrupted and stop somewhere to rest your weary legs and down a well-earned meal…guilt-free!
What do you think of these ideas? Do you have other suggestions for the healthy individual to consider when trying to impress a date but not add pounds to their waistline?
