Stay Healthy

If you’re worried about gaining weight like a baby blue whale on your next holiday, listen up! I start to feel bloated and sluggish just thinking about poolside cocktails and five-star hotel buffet breakfast pastries. Really, who wants to spend their holiday feeling ‘blah’ and needing a serious detox, or new wardrobe, every time you get home? Not me, and hopefully not you either. So here’s how to avoid holiday weight gain (and by weight, I mean body fat), while still having a great time.

Staring at the ceiling of a hotel room at 2 a.m. in the morning is my least favourite way to start a holiday. And to think there was a time that I didn’t believe jet lag was a real thing… How naive! But if it’s ever hit you, you’ve probably been left in the dark wondering, what is jet lag and when will this nightmare end?!?

Bali Belly, Thailand Trots, Montezuma’s Revenge… you name it, we’ve had it. And missing out on exotic beaches and natural wonders of the world is enough to make you learn how to not only prevent, but also treat traveler’s diarrhea. And fast. No one wants Bali Belly symptoms ruining their holiday in paradise.

If you plan on getting high (literally, I mean) on your next holiday, you’ll want some advice on how to prevent altitude sickness naturally. For sea level peeps like us, heading to the mountains means we need to think about the impact it might have on our health. And as anyone who’s had altitude sickness in the past can attest, it’s one that shouldn’t be ignored.
