Precautions to Take While Traveling in summer

Summers are officially here and you all must have planned for a summer vacation destination. Even if you aren’t going somewhere with the family, there would be times when you need to travel, maybe for business purposes. The heat and the many risks to your health are a big concern while traveling during the hot months of the year. If you have planned travel in summer and are worried about keeping yourself and your family healthy, you must know how to fight the heat in the first place. In this post, we have shared some great tips that would help you keep yourself and the family healthy, as you enjoy traveling during the summer season:


Stay Hydrated:

Whether or not you’re traveling, the thumb rule to stay healthy in summer is to stay hydrated. Increase in temperature causes the body to lose water rapidly through incessant perspiration. Therefore, to ensure normal health, it’s important to increase fluid uptake in order to sustain proper metabolism and other bodily functions. Drink a lot of water and water-based drinks (electrolytes, sports drinks) to make sure you compensate for the loss of water.

Beat the sun:

Planned your vacation by the sea? Make the most of it with proper preparation. A generous does of sunscreen before you go out in the open, will help you ward off sunburns. An ideal sunscreen not only nourishes your skin, but also safeguards it from the harmful rays of the sun.

Protect your eyes:

What better way to get into your vacay mode than to flaunt a pair of fancy sunnies? As you pack for your summer travel, don’t forget to lay your hands on your shades. It’s by far the most effective barrier against the scorching rays of the sun. Opt for a pair of UV resistant glasses and shield your eyes from the harmful glare as you go about your travel plans in summer.

Watch what you eat:

Digestive disorders are very common during summers and travelling makes you all the more vulnerable to them given the inevitable change in eating habits. Restricting your meals to eating small portions, and avoiding foods from unhygienic sources can help in avoiding the plethora of gastric diseases that are prevalent in summer.

Keep medicines handy:
Let’s hope you never require it on your travel, but slipping in your pouch of essential medicines in your luggage serves for the much-needed cushion you’d require when met with unfortunate setbacks. Travelling in itself is a taxing endeavor, and the summer is sure to make it all the more difficult – and the last thing you’d want is a stomach ache or a muscle sprain to play the spoil sport. Therefore, having basic medications with you can help cut your way out of health setbacks without compromising on your travel.

At Apollo Diagnostics, we deeply value your well-being and wish the very best of this summer. We hope these tips will help you make your travel plans secured than ever before.
