Health – planning ahead for a holiday – Injury claim lawyer in Horsley Lodge
When you are on holiday the last thing you want is for anything to ruin it, particularly illness or injury. When you are going on holiday it is helpful to try to plan for any eventuality. At worst you won’t need to use your back up plans, but at best doing this could save your holiday. Here are some tips for planning ahead for your holiday so that you can relax and enjoy it from the moment your plane hits the runway.
The best way to protect against an injury or illness ruining your holiday is to have travel insurance. This will cover you for medical treatment whilst you are away and get you the best possible care. Not being able to afford the treatment you need if you do have an accident will cut your holiday short as well as negatively affecting your health.
If you are going to country which has illness and diseases that we do not have here, then it is best to get immunised for everything you can before you leave. Visit your doctor as soon as your holiday is planned to find out what immunisations you and your family may need to have and get these booked in.
Deep vein thrombosis isn’t enormously common but does happen. Looking into buying DVT socks before you get on the plane, and keep moving throughout the journey so that your feet and legs are not in one position for too long. You should also avoid alcohol, and to avoid jetlag try to eat and sleep according to the right times at your destination from the moment you get on the plane.
Food and Sun
These seem like obvious things but many people forget to protect themselves while they are away. Avoid salads and drink only bottled water. Make sure everything you eat is thoroughly and freshly cooked, and hasn’t been sat in a warm place for too long. You should also get the highest factor sunscreen you have and then use a lower factor lotion as your holiday goes on if you want to get a tan.
