It’s that time of the year when all you want to do is put on a sarong, lie in a hammock with a glass of chilled mojito, and hum to Feelin’ hot hot hot!
The summer is officially here, and TBH, who doesn't love the sun shining in all its glory. With the kids running around in cute tiny swimsuits and families packing picnics to head off to the beach, it's truly everyone's favorite season.
Now, it's quite easy to lose track of time when you're having such a gala time. Not to forget, the hot sun can be extremely gruesome and exhausting. You've got to look out for yourself not to get a heatstroke!
So, what can you do to save yourself and your family from the excruciating heat? Well, don't you worry ‘cuz we’ve got your back! Consider these helpful tips and beat the heat in style to get the most out of your vacation.
#1 Always carry sunscreen
If nothing else, you absolutely must do this. Do yourself a favor and never step out of your house without wearing sunscreen. A good SPF will always protect your skin from harmful sun rays and keep your skin’s texture intact. Quick tip! Carry travel-size bottles of sunscreen in your handbags or pockets.
According to the TSA, sunscreen falls into the liquid category, which means you're allowed to carry only 3 ounces or less in your handbag on an airplane. You don’t want it to end up into your checked luggage (remember Ross’s horror when the shampoo exploded in his luggage in Friends? You don’t want that happening with your sunscreen!).
#2 Keep yourself hydrated
We can't stress this enough. Bring along plenty of water when you're on a vacation. Keeping yourself hydrated is essential to maximize your traveling expectations. Trust us when we say this – dehydration can easily ruin all your fun time. So drink at least 2 to 3 liters of water every day, and if you're engaging in high-intensity activities, feel free to increase your water intake. Anyone thirsty right now?
#3 Be easy on yourself
We understand that you want to tick off every item on that bucket list ASAP, but hold on, don't be too hard on yourself. It's essential to give yourself some time to relax and unwind from back-to-back excursions. Look for opportunities where you can sit and chill in the lap of nature, take small naps in a shade, or lounge in an aesthetic café. These little things will spice up your holiday like never before.
Regardless of where you're spending your summer vacations, on the waters at a balmy beach or on a road trip with a beautiful view of the countryside, make the best use of your time. Remember, this can be your only opportunity for months to come, so enjoy it to the fullest. But don't forget to follow these handy summer travel tips.
