One of the main objectives and goals of traveling and a vacation is to get rest and relaxation. Sometimes people forget this simple fact and overexert themselves on what would otherwise be a tranquil and peaceful vacation experience. Travelers should always focus on getting plenty of sleep before and during a trip. This is essential to ensuring the dangerous mistakes and hazards are not encounter while on vacation.

Memory Problems While On Vacation Can Result In Missed Connections

In most instances adults should target eight hours of sleep each night as the norm. Teenagers and children should average about 10 to 12 hours of sleep each night while on vacation and while at home. Some of the most obvious signs of sleep deprivation are memory type problems. The cognitive ability of an individual is greatly hindered when there has been severe sleep deprivation. Memory problems while on vacation can result in missed connections, lost baggage and even the inability to find a ride to the hotel.

Adequate Sleep Will Help To Fight Off Illness

Another major concern when it comes to inadequate sleep while on vacation is that of a weak immune system. A lack of sleep can easily cause one to be more susceptible to catching a wide range of bugs, flu symptoms and even a cold. Adequate sleep will help to fight off illness and make a vacation far more enjoyable. As an added note, traveling on an airplane greatly increases the risk of catching a cold or flu. This is simply due to the fact that air within an aircraft cabin is re-circulated spreading flu and cold germs throughout the entire cabin.

Most Tranquil Tropical Setting Imaginable

Equally important is to be aware of stress levels while traveling on vacation. Congested airports and long lines can all contribute to stress. Even if you are going to the most tranquil tropical setting imaginable it is still likely that you will encounter some level of stress while flying or driving to your destination. Finally, poor judgment and slowed reflexes are also the direct result of a lack of sleep. These symptoms can also have an effect on one’s overall general health and wellbeing.

Few other experiences in life can compare to traveling abroad to an exotic beach destination. That said there are some simple yet important beach safety tips that every traveler should consider when traveling to any beach destination. For example, the internationally recognized flag symbols on most beaches will indicate different levels of danger. A double red flag simply means that it is much too dangerous to swim.

Current Conditions Are Safe For All Levels Of Swimmers

Conversely, a single red flag will indicate that it is dangerous to swim, while some bathers may find that wading into knee-deep water is safe. A yellow flag in most beach settings indicates that there is moderate danger and that strong swimmers will likely be okay to swim. Finally, a green flag is universally known to represent mild or inviting ocean or beach conditions. A green flag simply implies that the current conditions are safe for all levels of swimmers on the beach.

Never Combine Alcohol And Swimming

Another simple strategy that can go a long way in keeping everyone safe on a beach vacation is to never drink alcohol and swim. It is widely understood that alcohol and boating or alcohol and swimming never mix. Play it safe and be smart by saving the alcohol enjoyment for an evening after dinner. Many accidents have occurred at the beach because people chose to combine alcohol and swimming. It is also a good idea to be aware of any dangerous wave conditions or possible riptides or rip currents. Another key concern is that of lightning. Tropical beach destinations will have thunderstorms and lightning.

Diving Into Unknown Waters

It is obvious that lightning and water are a dangerous combination. Anytime there is a report of a thunderstorm or lightning it is advised to get out of the water and seek shelter. Finally, diving into unknown waters can be a very dangerous proposition. Be cautious and stay safe by never diving in areas where you are uncertain of what lies underneath the water. Most modern beach vacations are amazingly enjoyable, relaxing and incredibly rewarding.

However, it is well worth considering these simple beach safety tips as a way to stay safe while at the beach.
