Going on summer adventures?
Do it the healthy way.
Here are some tips for you:
- Bring plenty of fluids. We all know the saying, “eight glasses of water a day helps keep the doctor away.” This doesn’t only apply to water, but also to other types of fluids like juice and smoothies. Going on summer adventures will require you to keep yourself hydrated more often than usual. So, bring plenty of fluids on your trip. Pack in at least 3 bottles of water, 5 cans of fruit juice, and one or two water bottles filled with home-made smoothies (a healthy alternative to soda) that you can make with those found in http://juicerkings.com/best-ninja-blenders/.
- Pack snacks instead of full meals. The reason for this is quite simple. You won’t be that mindful about eating when going on summer adventures, especially if you’re having so much fun. However, you mustn’t skip meals or let yourself go hungry that much before eating anything. So, pack snacks instead of full meals (to avoid spoilage) on your trip. If you’re feeling hungry, you can eat right away. You can just eat full meals after truly enjoying what you’re doing. But until then, fill yourself up with a snack to replenish your energy.
- Condition yourself before leaving. And by conditioning yourself, it means getting your body strong enough to withstand adventures that might require one to make full use of his/her body such as deep caving and scuba diving. Aside from that, you also need to get your body adaptable to other extreme adventures such as hiking mountains and rock climbing. So, condition yourself before leaving. Stretch up, jog outside for at least 30 minutes, stretch up again, and just continue to build up your agility, endurance, and strength.
- Get enough sleep before leaving. Going on summer adventures will definitely be fun. The only downside is that you will usually be sleepless due to excitement or time constraints when travelling to another destination. So, get enough sleep before leaving. Or better yet, get enough sleep whenever you can or wherever you can like when traveling on an airplane, on a ship, or on a bus. Use your free time doing nothing to sleep and recharge your body for the next day’s adventure.
This might work for some, but not for others. Regardless, these pretty much are the basics when going on adventures – let alone, this summer. So, remember: bring plenty of fluids, pack snacks instead of full meals, condition yourself before leaving, and get enough sleep before leaving.
Enjoy your summer vacation!
