Travelers should take precautions to stay healthy through the holidays
Wednesday, December 12, 2012
Whether travelers are flying to a foreign city for business or meeting up with family at serviced apartments, getting sick is definitely not on their itinerary this holiday season. With the flurry of activity that takes place in the weeks leading up to New Year's, the odds that people will get rundown only intensify. For this reason, it is a good idea for them to do whatever they can to avoid sickness to ensure a merry season.
Fox News recently featured a few tips from Michelle King Robson, chief executive officer of EmpowHER, that may help travelers stay healthy throughout the holidays and beyond. For instance, even if road warriors show no signs of a cold, they should start boosting their immunity with a vitamin supplement mix like Emergen-C.
Cleaning germs off surfaces with hand sanitizer wipes and applying a little Neosporin ointment to the nose are two other precautionary steps travelers can take to keep sickness at bay during the holidays.
Those who will be flying to furnished apartments need to remember that their risk of acquiring a sinus infection only increases inside the pressurized cabin of an airplane. According to AccuWeather, inhaling the steam from a hot beverage or using saline spray may keep nasal passages moist enough so germs do not stick.
