Tops To Avoid Getting Sick When You Travel

There is at least one flu season every year – if you are a frequent traveller, you surely dread it already. Flu epidemics spread from person to person through contaminated, airborne droplets of respiratory fluids, so spending any amount of time in crowded places, such as railway stations or airports increases the likelihood of contracting the illness. However, there are some measures that can help you minimize the risk of falling ill, even if you need to travel a lot – here are some of the best methods:

  • Carry an alcohol-based sanitizing product and use it each time after you have come into contact with doors or handles used by many people;
  • Avoid touching your face, especially your eyes, your nose and your mouth with your hands in public places – your hands might carry the virus;
  • Hydrate all the time – proper hydration is essential for a healthy immune system that is able to ward off infections. Consume plenty of water, fruit juices and herbal teas to keep your body hydrated;
  • Eat healthy – maintaining a healthy diet might be challenging during long journeys, but you need to consume the right amounts of vitamins, minerals, proteins and fibers to strengthen your health and to improve your resistance to viral infections, including the flu.  Find clean and well managed places to stay at
