The ongoing pandemic has had a serious effect on every inch of our lives, and it’s also put a huge strain on the travel industry. With more and more people staying at home and countries shutting their borders, it’s become almost impossible for people to go on vacation. This is having a serious knock-on effect on hotels, travel agencies, and others who work within this sector. However, you can help them if you have just five minutes to spare — and this could also save your future vacation.
Write a Hotel Review
Hands up if you have ever written a review of a hotel that you’ve stayed in? While we’re sure there are some people out there who have, the large majority of people do not do this. Yet, if you take just five minutes out of your day to write this review and give an honest opinion, you may be able to save that hotel when the market opens back up again. After all, most people choose to stay in the top-rated hotels, and your review could put your favorite hotel into that realm.
Postpone Your Trip — Don’t Cancel
If you were due to go on vacation in the past few weeks or in the near future, then you’ve probably come to the conclusion that you’re not going to be going on it. But what if we told you that canceling could seriously impact the travel industry in a negative way? If you can cope without that money being refunded back into your bank account, then it would be better to postpone your trip. This way, the companies working under your booking not only have your money to keep them going but also know that they will have customers in the future.
The travel industry is struggling, but you could seriously help them out. Will you?
3 Best Thirst-Quenching Tips for Happy Hydrating
It’s time to celebrate Hydration Day. Doesn’t sound familiar? Well, National Hydration Day is all about the importance of fluid intake in your body. Healthy hydration supports nearly every internal body function like temperature regulation, natural detoxification, and immunity. Here are the best 3 prescribed thirst-quenching tips for your regular hydration check.
Scratch the Eight-by-Eight Myth
The widely known concept of drinking eight glasses of water a day has become the gospel somehow. But it is doubtful that different people coming from different backgrounds, need to drink the exact same amount of water daily. Co-author of Quench and M.D., integrative medicine physician Dana Cohen tells that, there is no rule of thumb of daily water intake. It varies depending on one’s body type, environment, diet, and daily activity level. Generally, she recommends drinking half of the body weight in ounces in a day.
Include a Go-to Green Smoothie
Going green is always beneficial. According to Cohen, a fiber-rich green smoothie is more hydrating than drinking multiple glasses of water. For the ultimate thirst-quenching blend, simply throw ½ an apple, ½ a cucumber, 2 tbsp of chia seeds, juice of ½ lemon into a high-speed blender. Add 1 cup of greens of choice like spinach or kale. Then pour 2 to 3 cups of water. Now whir until all blends in smooth green goodness.
Chill with Chia Detox Water
Chia seeds may not be popular as hydrating foods, but these fiber-rich seeds are high on detoxification. When added Chia seeds, the H2O molecules react and layer upon one another, turning the water into a slimy gel consistency. You can add a dash of lime or lemon to it for taste. The fibers in it acts like a sponge and can absorb up to 10-12 times their weight, maintaining the hydration much better. According to Cohen, this ‘structured’ form is originally the form of liquid found in nature and also in our body cells.
