Health and Fitness: Enjoying vacations is loved by all of us. This is only a factor that helps everyone to charge themselves to become energetic, right from child to adults. In fact, vacations give a chance to move away from the hectic routine and monotonous lifestyle to energize oneself with physical and mental tiredness.
For this, one usually thinks about visiting spots, and often visualizes beaches with the sound of water waves, the crackle of trees swaying in the breeze, and the sand beneath the feet. But, for this, there is a bit of drawback also—holidays and vacations sometimes become unfavorable to our health. Naturally when one is on vacations due to break in daily routine of physical exercises and upset in the routine diet, the body may suffer with some or the other problems.
Thus, instead of feeling energized after the vacation, we end up feeling exhausted. But, in true sense this should not happen, rather it should be other way round, one should feel energetic and awesome.
Some people gets affected with post-vacation syndrome like sunburned skin, chlorine-damaged hair, very little sleep, and putting on weight due to disturbed eating and overeating.
One happens to do overeating, as one cannot stop himself to relish the famous food of that particular place and also think, doesn’t matter, will do more exercises once we are back, and also feel to enjoy that particular moment. And also, only food is the substitute for the one to provide energy to the exhausted body after the whole day outing.
