Are you aware of your vacation’s health risks? Summer is travel season. Kids are out of school, young adults have graduated from college, and parents are apt to take time off from work to venture out with their families. What many parents and families experience after coming home from vacation is a cold or some form of a stomach bug.
It is common for travelers to come down with what’s been coined “leisure sickness.” A term crafted by a Dutch psychologist back in 2002 after study a group of 1,900 men and women who did experience flu and cold like symptoms during vacation and weekends. Roughly 3% of the travel population came down with some sort of illness putting a damper on their vacation and travel plans.
“It may be related to a change in habits during the weekend or on holiday, including more or less sleep, coffee or alcohol. Or that during work, your busy jobs direct the brain’s attention away from signals from the body, so when you go to a quiet setting, those signals are suddenly perceived and interpreted as symptoms,” said Vingerhoets in an interview with The Guardian.
So what can you do when your body starts reacting to a virus? We have a few suggestions to combat and prevent “leisure sickness” affects.
