Yes, the prime holidaying and vacationing season may still be a fair few months away. But, it’s never too early to start thinking and even preparing for it, is it? And, when it comes to this year’s holiday prep, why not do more than just the standard (and highly important, of course) booking of accommodation and flights? Why not do more than just decide where it is you and the family will be jetting off to? Yes, why not go one step further with your holiday prep and actually make some plans on how you’ll be staying healthy whilst on holiday?

This might sound like a bit of an alien concept, I know, but by doing so and then actually doing all you can to stay healthy whilst on holiday, your body and your health will thank you tenfold. For advice on how to stay healthy on holiday, make sure to read on.

First of all, focus on your eating

Your annual holiday may be a time for you to let loose and enjoy yourself, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to fill your body full of bad and unhealthy thing whilst on it. No, you can enjoy your holiday and eat healthily at the same time. To do this, you’re going to have to exercise a lot of self-restraint and resist the urge to splurge at all moments. Try and remember that old adage: a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips!

Be smart when it comes to the sun

Of course, being smart when it comes to the sun completely depends on whether you are jetting off to a sunny country or not. But, if you are heading for hotter horizons then you should most definitely be sun smart because being the opposite will result in an adverse effect on your health.

First of all, because the sun’s harmful UV rays have the potential to cause irreparable damage to your eyes, you should be doing all you can to protect your eyes from these rays. To do so you should be smart and get yourself a pair of prescription sunglasses, such as those found at, and should be making sure you that you wear these sunglasses of yours whenever you venture out into the sun. And, whilst you’re at it, make sure to protect your skin from these harmful rays, too, as they too can have irreparable damage caused to them by the sun. When it comes to doing this, make sure to get a sun cream or lotion that comes with the right SPF for you. Anything higher or lower for your specific skin type will not protect your skin the way it needs to be protected.

So, as you can see, staying healthy on holiday is not all that hard. In fact, it’s not hard at all. It’s just about showing restraint when faced with temptations and remembering that to wear and apply certain things at certain times.
