Travelling is the least expensive mode of education and therapy with a myriad of perks. It is synonymous to meditation and peace. Travel carries with it a list of reasons that envelop an individual’s need. Some travel to attend or conduct business meetings, others travel to shed off the consequences of the burden they have been carrying for so long. Some travel to tickle their aesthetic sensibilities while others travel just to have fun.
No wonder the travel industry has achieved great heights. We have every kind of place to cater to our needs. Want to party? Thailand or Vegas just called and want their pockets filled off the drunkenness of people. Want to check out museums and architecture? Travel all over Europe, Middle East, India and marvel over the structures and genius of ancient citizens.
Travelling brings with it many benefits. It aids in curing depression, improves connections with people, keeps the heart healthy, increases knowledge and understanding, makes you more open-minded and less cynical. Most importantly, it enhances your personality and unbridles the best version of you. You find yourself learning and unlearning things. You become more humble, patient and sympathetic towards the plight of the world.
Additionally, travelling also boosts your immunity. Travelling takes you out of your comfort zone in a new region, climate, cuisine, culture and people. Naturally, your body is subjected to, if not alien, different conditions that may affect its functioning temporarily. The antibodies that fight any unhealthy influences on our body. When we travel, we often come in contact with dirty surroundings and dusty regions.
Change in water and taste further the alien conditions our bodies are subjected to. This is a positive thing because it trains the soldiers in our bodies to be more vigilant and attack more treacherously. However, one shouldn’t forget the following basic hygiene routine while travelling.
Here are few tips to boost your immunity while travelling
-> Eat as per the region and climate
It is important to eat right for all the salubrious reasons. Exploring through different tastes and spices used in the local cuisines can be a little extreme for your digestive system. You need to understand your stomach and eat what is right as per the climate. In extreme terrains, for instance in high altitude mountain regions, consuming more mono-saturated fat can help you in staying warm. The design of the terrain determines the cuisine of a particular place. Also, it is important that at least one meal of the day should contain greens and salads. Your body needs more nutrients to cope up with the discomfort that travelling causes.
-> Stay Hydrated
Water is the most essential nutrient in body and staying hydrated while travelling makes you feel more active and less fatigued. Especially while taking a flight, or hiking in the ‘Death Zone’. Drink as much water as you can on your trips.
-> Get off your seat
Move as much as you can around the block or on the road and avoid taking cabs or metros wherever you think you can walk. Exercise improves your body’s immunity and strengthens the metabolism. Engage more in activities like hiking and climbing. Additionally, walking will help you explore a new place more intricately and you might come across various wall-flowers that you might not have expected.
-> Follow basic hygiene rules
Always carry napkins and sanitisers with you while travelling and avoid touching your face. Research about the potential diseases a particular region might carry and take the basic medicines and first aid kit with you all the time.
