Health tips for travellers
Travelling, whether near or far, can sometimes leave you vulnerable to the risk of seasonal illness and becoming run down.
Help protect your health on your next trip by following these business travel tips.
Prepare your medication
There's nothing worse than running out of a prescription in an unfamiliar city. Pre-empt this problem by ensuring you have enough of your regular medication to last you the duration of your trip. This will save you from trying to book doctor's appointments and locate pharmacies while you're away.
If you travel with large quantities of medicine it's a good idea to divide the portions amongst your luggage. This way, if a bag goes missing, you should still have a supply in a different item of luggage.

Get check-ups before you go
If you're travelling for a lengthy period of time you might want to have your routine check-ups before you leave your home town. This may include a full medical check-up, eyesight evaluation and dental assessment.
Pack a small medical kit with basic first aid tools to ensure you're always ready for action, no matter what part of the world you find yourself in.
Stay active and eat well
It's sometimes tempting to think of business travel as a big holiday, where diet and exercise go out the window. Unfortunately, this can become detrimental to your health, so it's best to keep up a regular routine while you're away.
