Summertime can mean a fun vacation and traveling with your family. The idea is to have a great time, see the sights, and enjoy the activities, along with each other’s company. Sometimes germs and injuries may be inevitable, but taking precautions and following the right tips to stay healthy makes all the difference.

And know that our services include a full list of regular and preventative care to help keep you healthy throughout the year. 

Possible summer ailments

When you travel, germs seem to come along with you or find you, especially on planes and in public transportation. Colds, the flu, sore throat, or allergies can ruin a vacation. If you’re spending time outdoors, you can get a rash from the heat or poison ivy. And of course, if you’re being active, you can suffer from a sprain, broken bone, or other injury

The key is to address these issues as quickly as possible. You may be down for a few days, but with the right treatment, you can miss less of your vacation. Let us get you back on your feet.

10 tips to stay healthy this summer

  1. Wash your hands regularly
  2. Stay hydrated
  3. Use sun protection like sunscreen, hats, and sunglasses
  4. Use insect repellent
  5. Pack all medication, vitamins, and supplements
  6. Get plenty of sleep
  7. Maintain a healthy diet
  8. Brush and floss daily
  9. Reduce stress
  10. Visit your doctor before you travel

Most of these tips are pretty straightforward. Washing your hands can reduce germs and the chance of spreading them, and brushing and flossing can eliminate germs and bacteria in your mouth. And even though you’re on vacation and want to do everything, getting enough sleep is always vital. Over planning can also add stress, which contradicts the whole idea behind your vacation. 

Coming to visit us at ER Near Me before your trip means you can address any potential issues and make sure you’re currently healthy. And we make sure you’re up-to-date on any medications you’re taking, so you have enough to bring with you. Preventative care is always best, but just know we’re here for you in any situation. Call us as soon as you need an appointment.
