Alcohol and sweet drinks are not just packed with sugar and therefore high in calories. They’ll disrupt your natural sleep pattern — which may already be out of control thanks to the time difference or long nights out.

If you are drinking alcohol, make sure you hydrate. Dehydration happens when the body loses water with more liquid coming out of the body through our cells than what we are taking in. What happens is your body has to work harder to cool off, to ward off infections, and to fight fatigue.

Again, stick to water instead and you’ll be able to make most of your vacation. And yes, you’re on vacation and it’s still ok to treat yourself now and then. The key is, as with so many good things in life: Consumption in moderation.
