Travelling this spring? The upside and downside of family vacations

 

I love going on vacation!  

I love just getting away, whether it is just to the cabin, camping, a stay-cation or actually getting on a plane and flying somewhere.

I am from an island on the east coast of Canada where you see a lot of people fly south this time of the year.

There are so many great things about travelling, you and your family:

  • gets to have a new experience,
  • can have a great chance to have fun and bond,
  • tries different things (like different foods and activities),
  • gets away and relaxes (great for the mindset!),
  • learns about different people and new cultures,
  • would have a boost to your mood,
  • get to experience the excitement of planning and looking forward to it,
  • will likely be active and get some Vitamin D (sunshine) while on vacation,
  • and so much more!

But there can be some downsides to family vacations…

  • Your sleep can be thrown off because of time changes and flight times,
  • You may not eat as well as normal,
  • It is easy to become dehydrated, especially when you are flying,
  • You may experience other health challenges such as:
    • headaches,
    • poor digestion,
    • puffiness/swelling,
  • Stress (you want everything to go perfect),
  • And more

Now, I certainly think that upsides of travelling FAR outweigh the downsides!!
