10 Tips For A Great Beach Holiday

1. Stay hydrated.

Okay, we are stating the obvious here but drinking lots of water is always important, let alone whilst being in hotter climate. I know it’s easy to get carried away with drinking all the martinis when you’re on holiday and we often forget about water but you really don’t want to feel dizzy whilst sunbathing. Staying hydrated helps you adjust to the climate better and keeps the headache at bay as well. It’s a must!

2. Balance Out Your Diet

In an ideal world holiday calories wouldn’t count but unfortunately they do. I am such a foodie and I’m always up for eating all the burgers and fried squid but I think that moderation is key. I know how easy it is to overindulge in yummy desserts and sugary cocktails but think about the bloating the next day and feeling less confident waking around in your bikinis. It’s important to feel light, so maybe pack some healthy lunch when hitting the beach. Chances are there will be some fast food places there but having something more nutritious is always a good idea. Take some fruit or a healthy salad and give the fish and chips a miss. Another good idea is to share meals with people and that way you can try all the delicious food and cut the calories in half.

3. Stick With Your Exercise Routine

You probably had a strict workout routine and worked hard for that smokin’ beach body, so why not stick with it whilst you’re away? I know it is tempting to skip the morning exercise and have a lie in or head to the beach early to get as much tan as possible but staying in shape on holiday is important. It will be much easier for you to get back to your usual routine when you get home and will make you feel confident in your body when sunbathing. You don’t necessarily need to hit the hotel’s gym, you can also go for a run on the beach or do some yoga when admiring at the gorgeous sea views. Take your pick, pack your gym gear and stay in shape!

4. Satitize

That’s a step I never miss and I think it’s important to keep that germs at bay at all cost. You don’t want to end up being ill on holiday and there might not be sink and soap you can use, especially if you go exploring the nearby caves. I love the fresh and clean feeling that sanitizers give and they also smell incredible. I love all Bath & Body Works ones or if you can’t get your hands on them, then this one is a personal fave!

5. Have a Social Media Break

As a blogger I am always trying to stay up to date with all my comments and catch up with the latest updates of my favorite bloggers. I always have my camera with me, ready to take pretty images or Snap that very cute dog. But it is important to have a social media break every once in a while. I’m not saying to stop uploading pics of your latest meal or stop checking you Twitter but try to engage with conversions with the people you’re away with. Try to enjoy every moment more without thinking how many likes you got on that photo or tweet. Focus more on yourself and your loved ones – it is mind refreshing.

6. Don’t Forget Your Camera

As I said, I always have my camera on me and I just love taking beautiful snaps of everywhere I go. Not for social media, just for me to look back on. Creating memories and capturing them on camera is such a great thing and being the nostalgic person I am, looking back on old holiday photos makes me super happy. You can also use your phone of course but if you are like me you probably don’t have enough space on your phone (sort it out Appple!). Plus, the camera always gives better quality photos and I find it a lot more intimate and the photos won’t disappear in the sea of selfies and screenshots.

7. Take Reading Material

I’m quite a busy person and unfortunately I rarely find the time to read at home, so when I am on holiday I always check a lot of books off my reading list. I find reading at the beach the best way to relax and even if you don’t fancy reading a book, flipping though a magazine is always fun and a great way to unwind.

8. Protect Yourself From The Sun

Right, you’ve fake tanned and look all sorts of golden goddess-y but the fact that you have a beautiful tan base doesn’t mean you can’t burn in the sun. Quite the opposite actually. Slap some SPF on, reapply every few hours, put on your favorite shades, a hat and enjoy. You don’t want to end up looking like a lobster on your first day, am I right? Besides, if sunbathing and tanning is your thing, you can still get tanning oil, which will help you enhance your tan whilst still protecting you from the UV rays.

9. Take Care of Your Skin

My skin usually goes cray when I change climates, so sticking with my usual skincare routine is vital. I know it’s tempting to pick up tons of minis from the drugstore but changing your entire regime on holiday is not ideal. Makeup wipes wouldn’t really do the trick either. You need to make sure that you got all that build up sweat and SPF off your skin prior going to bed. Instead of getting all the samples just get some of those travel size toiletries containers and fill them with your tried and tested skincare bits.

10.  Relax & Don’t Touch Your Laptop

I like keeping busy and as a workaholic I know how tempting it is to check your emails or finish that report that you are working on at the office. It is, however, important you take some time off. The thought of all the work that’s waiting for me at home used to make me super anxious but after experiencing quite a serious burnout, I learned the importance of relaxing. Those emails can wait, they’ll still be there when you go home, so try not to stress about it and don’t feel guilty for taking time for yourself. Try to soak up the moment, finish that book that you’re reading, go for a swim or just enjoy the sun while sipping on Sangrias. Don’t ‘live for work’. Remember - it should be the other way around!

Lots of love,
