with Dr. William Hall
by: Sandy Dhuyvetter Executive Producer and Host of TravelTalkRADIO and BusinessTravelRADIO
Dr Hall is visiting TravelTalkRADIO this month and shared tips on how aging travelers can best prepare for their journeys.
A leader in ‘aging well’ Dr Hall says the number one thing to avoid while in transport is alcohol. While it may be offered for free, watch the temptation and put off the ‘drink’ until you have successfully landed at your destination and have reason to celebrate.
Know where you are going, and the limitations and accessibility to emergency services.
Flights that leave later in the day have are more likely to leave and arrive late. According to US News, booking early morning is the time most deals are available.
Airports provide assistance to travelers. Be sure to contact your carrier if you need special assistance getting from one gate to the other.
Time changes and jet lag can be debilitating and can cause your system to become out of whack. Be sure you put yourself into the time zone you are currently in. Try to stay awake until the evening time at your new location. Living in the ‘now’ is essential.
Vacations are meant to be fun and food can tempt even the most disciplined. Work with the airlines prior to your trip to make sure you are offered the food choices that work best for you. Pack nutritious food that can be eaten easily. Making good choices while on the road will keep the bodies constitution intact and running smoothly.
Don’t pack your prescriptions in checked luggage. It is always recommended to under dose rather than opting for that extra dose.
While flying, Dr. Hall has answered a fair share of requests from cabin crews for a doctor on board, most often the passenger have one of three problems, high blood pressure, a heart condition or diabetes. Make sure you check with your health specialist and discuss your trip
