Now more than ever, you should be looking after your well-being very well. However, because there is a widespread, serious disease doesn’t mean that you should quit celebrating the fruits of your labour, such as completing high school with as little complication as possible.
Fortunately, turning your back on your schoolies 2020 getaway, which you and your best high school pals planned months ago, isn’t necessary.
Although life has to go on despite what’s taking place worldwide, you must prioritise your safety. It is also important that you keep your friends, with whom you will be partying, out of harm’s way. Staying infection-free should be everyone’s main concern.
When gearing up for your upcoming getaway, include in your checklist some of the steps that you need to take to stay healthy before, during, and after the trip.
Going on a grand holiday these days is different. It is not just about making it as memorable as possible that counts but also about making sure that you do not compromise your and your high school buddies’ well-being. Luckily, there are many steps that you can take.
Boost Your Immune System
There is one powerful weapon that you can arm yourself with during these difficult times. It is none other than a strong immune system. If your resistance is top-notch, your body can protect itself from invading microbes more effectively, keeping complications at bay.
Opting for healthy foods, getting regular exercise, and quitting cigarette smoking are some of the most effective ways to strengthen one’s resistance.
However, it doesn’t mean that having a bolstered immune system is grounds for you to be careless. You can still spread germs to the people around you, such as those with you while basking in the sights and sounds during your grand vacay.
Stick to Outdoor Venues
Health authorities say that infection-causing germs tend to spread more in poorly ventilated areas, such as enclosed indoor spaces. Especially if you share a confined room with many people, some of whom could be infected, you are most likely to end up with an infection.
Due to this, it is smart to spend most of your post-high school trip outdoors where the air can move freely, and everyone can observe social distancing easily.
Keep a Hand Sanitiser Handy
You cannot stash a sink in your backpack that will allow you to wash your hands after touching anything that could be teeming with microbes. However, you can always put a small bottle of hand sanitiser in the tiniest places, such as your pocket.
The CDC says that the best hand sanitiser for the job is the one that has at least 60% alcohol content. Otherwise, it won’t protect you as well as others effectively.
Just because you have a hand sanitiser handy while hopping from one tourist hotspot to the next throughout your schoolies 2020 holiday doesn’t mean that you are totally out of harm’s way. Clean hands can lower your infection risk, not make you invincible.
Avoid Staying Up Too Late
Earlier, the importance of having a strong immune system was mentioned. To keep your resistance optimum, remember to get a good night’s sleep each time.
It is recommended that you avoid partying all night long with your high school besties. Always keep in mind that you have a week-long vacation, which means that there is no need to lose precious sleep to experience it all.
