Although travelling provides you with awesome opportunities to see new places and experience different cultures, it can also expose your body to new germs and bacteria that increase your chances of getting sick. So, if you find yourself feeling unwell during your travels, don’t let illness cast a cloud over on your fun. Use these pieces of advice to get back on the mend!
Consume Lots of Fluid
This will likely mean frequent trips to the bathroom but consuming lots of liquid will help flush out toxins and prevent you from getting dehydrated. In addition to drinking water, tea is also a good fluid to consume, as it contains antioxidants and helps boost your immune system.
Many of you may not like this; however, it’s best to avoid alcohol when sick – to aid in a quick recovery. Not only does alcohol cause dehydration, which you might already be experiencing from being sick, but it can also interfere with any over the counter medications you may be to get better.
Wash Your Hands Constantly
If your immune system has already been compromised, keeping your hands as clean as possible prevents you from coming in contact with more germs that could worsen your symptoms.
Take a Hot Shower
Hot Showers are a great way to relax the muscles and open up your sinuses. Although this isn’t a solution to being sick, a hot shower can provide that momentary relief needed to fall asleep and get a good night’s rest.
Consult a Doctor
Depending on the person, opinions can vary regarding the use of over-the-counter medication; however, if more natural remedies have not solved the issue, consulting a doctor can be a quicker way to get to the route of the problem and determine its severity.
