Sticking to an anti-inflammatory lifestyle while on holiday

Your holiday is a time to recover and enjoy the good things in life. Most of us have, however, implemented healthy routines in our lives that we don’t want to loose just because we’re on holiday. In this article, you can read more about how to make the most of your holiday and keep your mind and body healthy.

Prioritising your health while on holiday

While it is important to make sure you have healthy routines in place regarding diet, exercise, sleep, etc., you also have to allow yourself to indulge and relax every once in a while – especially when you’re on holiday. But in order to keep feeling good, even when on vacation, it might be a good idea to maintain at least some of your everyday routines. You can, for example, make sure that you take your daily dose of Synbiotic, drink a green smoothie and get some form of exercise every day.

Your vacation is also a great time to establish new habits, since you have both the time and energy required to implement changes. Maybe you want to bring more mindfulness into your everyday life, or start exercising regularly? Read more about how to create and maintain positive habits here.

8 tips for an anti-inflammatory lifestyle during your holiday

1. Bring synbiotics with you on the trip

Regardless of whether you are hiking, going out with the boat or if you don’t have access to a refrigerator for a couple of days, you can continue to take your synbiotics without any problems. The bacteria in Synbiotic can survive outside of the refrigerator for shorter periods of time, so you can bring your daily dose of bacteria and fibre with you on your travels, both within and outside of the country.

2. Enjoy locally produced foods in season

Take the opportunity to enjoy local produce. Support your local farmers or research where you can pick berries and fruits yourself. Enjoy fresh vegetables as they both taste good and are great for yourbenign gut bacteria.

3. Put your effort into one meal – keep the rest simple

Even though your holiday is supposed to be a time of recovery, it can sometimes be a hectic time full of activities, excursions, cooking and so on. A tip is to keep breakfast (if you do not practise intermittent fasting) and lunch simple and then make more of an effort when preparing dinner (or indulge when going out for dinner!). You could make a smoothie for breakfast, a simple salad for lunch and then a more time-consuming dish for dinner. If you’re looking for some inspiration, we have some recipes to get you started. 

4. Experiment with new dishes

If you enjoy cooking, take the opportunity to try some new recipes during your time off, and get new ideas for your everyday meals. Maybe you already have recipes saved that you have not had time to try yet? You could also try a new vegetable you have never tried before and either find a suitable recipe or experiment on your own. Or if cooking isn’t your thing – why not give it a go? It’s a great activity with the family or friends as well – hanging out in the kitchen together while preparing a delicious meal. 

5. Take your time when eating

Have you heard of mindful eating? Now is the perfect time to try this technique! Eat slowly, chew your food properly and take note of all the flavours and textures. This can both improve digestion and calm your stomach, which is good for the gut flora.

6. Move every day

Physical activity is an important part of the anti-inflammatory lifestyle, but you don’t have to go hard if you don’t want to. 30 minutes of moderate exercise a day is enough. Kill two birds with one stone and combine your exercise with fun activities such as walking, hiking, making a snow man or skiing if you venture off to the cold, and if you stay in sunny Asia, swimming, yoga on the beach or a new outdoor sport could be fun.

7. Prioritise recovery

Taking a break from work and school is a good opportunity to properly recover, which might not present itself during your stressful everyday life. Be sure to take advantage of this time to rest and sleep properly. You can also take the opportunity to try different methods of stress management that could come in handy once you go back to everyday life.

8. Find healthy alternatives to sugar

During vacation you can easily end up having a little too much white sugar. There are, however, several good alternatives that are both more nutritious and that don’t effect your blood glucose levels as severely. For example, try making your own raw balls with different flavours or make your own ice cream by mixing frozen fruits and berries with avocado for a creamy texture.

A supplement for your gut health

Want more energy and less bloating? It might be time to take better care of your gut. To strengthen or restore the balance in your gut flora, it's important you feed your gut with a daily dose of pre- and probiotics. A healthy diet with lots of fruits and vegetables is usually sufficient. If you want an extra boost or make sure you get a daily dose of good bacteria, you can complement your diet with a supplement.
