I Need To Get Things Done Before The Trip

Well, I got a head congestion and it’s giving me a headache.  I doubt it was from the pollen at the Butterfly Festival.  I am not feeling too good right now.  But I need to get some things done in the house because we are going out-of-town tomorrow.  There is still laundry that needs to be finished and a few clutters to be put away.  In addition, there I will run errands today too. So I have to take a pain relieve ASAP.

Life here in the US is not always easy.  You have to do things yourself.  It is expensive to hire a house cleaner, you know.  It is not a paradise.  You have to work hard like a water buffalo to earn money.  Plus the homesickness?  Makes me want to fly home, right now!

Here’s To Help You Acquire A Beach Body

I know, I know…that as early as now, everyone is preparing for the summer.  And it is fast approaching.  I like summer season not because of the heat.  It is because of the interesting and exciting activities we can do such outing, camping, fishing, vacationing, and swimming in the pool or at the beach.

It is undeniable that we are trying to keep up with acquiring a beach body.  Yes.  I am one of those ladies who is hoping to build toned muscles and sexy body for the summer.  Besides a regular exercise, a balanced diet is very important if we want to achieve the beach body goal.  They said that too much carbohydrates in our meal is not advisable.  In addition, sugar levels should be taken into consideration so it will stay normal.  Eating lots of sweets is not good either.  But if we eat in moderation like a low carb chocolate, for example, we might be able to control our diet.

Eating healthy is very important if people are always on-the-go.  And summer season is getting closer that everyone is anxious to go on vacation to the beach or likely on a cruise.  Wherever we may go to celebrate the summer season, healthy eating should be kept in mind.

Health Concerns Before Traveling

If you have health problems, always check with your doctor if you are safe to travel.  Your health condition should also be considered before you finalize your travel plans.  For those who have heart and cholesterol problems, keep in mind that weather conditions and food types in the destination you will be visiting are unpredictable and different.  Do not forget your prescription medicine and allergy pills before leaving.  Pregnant women need doctor’s advice before traveling.  The first and third trimester are the critical stage of pregnancy so travel plans on these period should be called off.  There are health precautions in every vacation destination.  So we need to be aware and be prepared.  A hand sanitizer is also essential to bring anywhere.  It is handy and helps to keep harmful germs away.

If you are taking a long vacation, be sure to refill your prescriptions so you won’t get short in medicine.  My husband takes 5 prescription pills a day.  When he came to visit me (while we were still dating), he double checked with his pharmacist if he got enough medicine to bring.

There are physically disabled passengers who can travel with the assistance of a companion or a family.  But then again, talk to your doctor for a valuable advice.

It Is Uncomfortable To Travel With Vision Problems

I went to meet my husband at the eye doctor’s office this afternoon.  He asked me to come and pick eyeglasses frame for him.  He really needs to replace his prescription eyeglasses.

Also, we are taking advantage of our time and schedule doctor’s appointments whenever possible.  Since we are planning our vacation, eye health is one of the priorities that need attention.  I am happy that my husband is getting his prescription eyeglasses soon.  As you know wearing a worn out eyeglasses while traveling is uncomfortable.  It is always advisable to have your eyes checked annually.
