Spending weeks running around on holidays, staying up late, eating all kinds of strange foods and putting yourself in new situations is everything a good Aussie adventure should be but it can take a toll on your body. If you’re anything like us, there’s a long list of things you want to be doing and getting sick is not one of them.
Check out these top 4 tips for staying in tip-top shape while you make your way around Australia.
- Say No To Stress
You’re on holidays right? Holidays mean a break from the every day, a break from work and a break from stress! But no matter how well prepared your adventure is unexpected things can happen. Our number one stress-busting tip is to take some time out for yourself. Read a book, go for a walk, call a friend or explore any one of Australia’s awesome beaches. Kick back and relax because at the end of the day, you’re on holidays and the hustle and bustle of everyday life will still be there when you get back.
- Eat Every 3 Hours
Two things can really kill your energy levels when travelling: Not eating enough and eating way too much. We get it – you’ve got a long list of things you want to see and do and eating is right at the very bottom but going hungry only increases the risk of binging later or heading to the nearest fast food restaurant. A greasy, fast food afternoon snack will leave you looking for the nearest pillow for a nap and unless you’re in a hammock under a palm tree, no one should be spending their afternoons napping while on holidays!
- Steer Clear Of Roadhouse Junk Food
Travelling to your next destination is an adventure in itself, but sometimes long hours spent on the road can leave you looking for the nearest drive-through come lunchtime. If you can, try stocking up an esky with your own food. It’s better for you, you can have as much or as little of it as you like and better yet it’s WAY cheaper! Save some space in the esky for plenty of bottled water to keep you hydrated and alert. Your fellow travellers may not appreciate all the toilet breaks but trust us, staying hydrated is key!
- Avoid Fatigue With Scheduled Down Time
If your travel schedule is back-to-back with plans, you can expect to feel a bit run down after a while. Trying to see everything will honestly leave you like you haven’t seen anything at all. Be realistic and don’t overcommit yourself. Leave enough time in your schedule to rest, drink and eat between stops and, no matter what your inner-party animal tells you, always try to get a proper night’s sleep.
