HEALTH TIPS FOR TRAVELLERS
Travel is fun. Travel is exciting. But it's not fun or exciting if you get ill. You
may think, "Not me. I won't fall ill on my holiday!" But, for many people, that
is what happens.
Of course you do not want to spend your holiday ill in bed. If you have heart
trouble, you don't want to make it worse. So what can you do to stay in good
health? There are three things you should remember when you travel: relax,
sleep and eat well.
A holiday is supposed to be a time for relaxing. But to our regret very often it is
not. Think about what you do when you are a tourist. There are so many places to
visit: museums, shops, parks and churches. You may spend most days walking
around these places. This can be very tiring. Your feet may hurt. You've got a
terrible headache after a few hours. If this is the way you feel, you should take a
rest. Do not ask your body to do too much. A tired body means a weak body. And
a weak body gets ill easily. So sit down for a few hours in a nice spot. In good
weather, look for a quiet park bench. Or you can stop at a cafe. You can learn a lot
by watching people while you rest.
You should not forget about sleep. If you want to stay healthy you need to
get a good night's rest. You may have trouble sleeping at night when you travel.
Your hotel room may be noisy or the bed may be uncomfortable. If this is true,
don't hesitate to change rooms or hotels. Or, you may not get enough sleep for
another reason. In many cities the nightlife can be very exciting. You may want
to stay out late at night. In this case you should plan to sleep for an hour during
the day. That extra hour can make a big difference.
Finally, if you want to stay in good shape, you must eat well. That means
eating the right kinds of food. Your body needs fresh fruit and vegetables, and
some meat, milk or cheese. No doubt when you are in a new country, you will
wish to try new food. But you need to be careful about how much you eat. Try
to avoid eating lots of rich food.
So, remember this: if you want to enjoy your holiday, take good care of
yourself. Give your body some rest. Get enough sleep and eat good, healthy
