Employee Benefits Tucson

Life is an adventure, Especially on Vacation…Even if you are not particularly brave there are still many ways to experience the adventures that lie in every corner of our planet.  It maybe as simple as going to the zoo at your destination and seeing the animals that are local to that habitat or taking a jungle tour though the amazon. There is so much to see and do, pick the adventures that appeal to your family and do them together.

Your Kids won’t be kids forever:  Doesn’t it seem like yesterday that the teenager that just borrowed your car, was in diapers and daycare? Most parents agree that time seems to fly by quickly and those babies are grown before you know it. There will come a time that your children will have lives of their own and sad as it may seem, spending time with mom and dad will not be anywhere near the top of their list.  Take the time for a family vacation while they still want your company.

Time to Kick Back and Relax:  Now this part is important. One of the main reason to take a vacation is to get some rest and recharge. It is important for everyone so don’t overdo it.  So whether you choose to pack the kids in the car or fly to more exotic destinations, the benefits are the same . As far as memories go, we tend to remember the good things; the time we spent together as a family, the new things that were discovered, the new friends we made, the places we saw. This is what your children will remember and, the fact that you were there with them to enjoy it.

Traveler’s Life= Air

To flights that lasted longer than six hours. Although some doctors will even  tell you there is an increased risk with flights lasting longer than four hours.

Department of Health and  the World Health Organization still state that prolonged immobility during travel increases your risk for DVT. (Deep Venous thrombosis) is the formation of a blood clot in a vein that is deep inside a part of the body, usually the legs.

This is why travelers are encouraged to get up and move around at least once every hour. There are some simple and inexpensive ways to be preventive:

* Wear compression socks or stocking- it helps increase circulation in legs and feet during the flight.

*Avoid wearing short, tight socks or crossing your legs for long periods- cuts off blood flow in deep arteries & veins.

*Wear loose clothing.

* Drink plenty of fluids and electrolytes.

* Avoid dehydrating fluids, like coffee and alcohol- dehydration causes blood to thicken and vessels to narrow.

On your next flight, stay hydrated, avoid alcohol, leave the sleeping pills at home and most important, move around as much as possible during your flight!
