How To Avoid Getting Sick When Traveling

*This post is contributed to Spicy Scribbler Blog

While getting sick when you are travelling is an awful experience, it’s also a very common one, and you need to know what it takes to prevent most illnesses that can affect you while you are visiting new places. To help you make the most of your visit, we have compiled a short list of the some of the most common illnesses that affect travellers and what they can do to prevent, treat or avoid them.

Traveler’s Diarrhea

If you are visiting a developing country, then the odds are about 50/50 that you will experience traveller’s diarrhea. This isn’t like normal diarrhea, mind you. It is chronic and leaves you dehydrated and comes from contaminated food and water.

To avoid this problem, you need to be very careful about what you are putting into your body, no matter where you are visiting. Make sure the tap water is treated, and even check the bottle water to see if it has undergone some form of treatment, such as reverse osmosis. You also want to ensure all fruits and vegetables are washed and that meats are stored and cooked properly before consuming them.

Influenza

If you are waiting in line at airport counter or to get on a boat, you are going to be in a crowd of people where at least a couple of them are likely to have the flu at any given time. In tropical countries, influenza affects people all year long, and not just during a certain season.

To protect yourself, practice some prevention and take Vitamin C regularly, drink plenty of water, get your flu shots and wash your hands before they come in contact with your face (such as eating, blowing your nose, scratching yourself or even shaving).

Malaria

This is one of the more unpleasant ones, and it usually only affects people going to tropical or developing countries. Much of Asia, Africa and South America suffer from malaria outbreaks from time to time, and having proper preventative measures on hand is the only way you are truly going to be able to keep yourself safe from this awful illness.

One of the best treatments for malaria is Doxycycline. Though it cannot be taken by pregnant women and children under 8, it is suitable for everyone else. It should be taken 1-2 days before travelling somewhere that malaria is present. It is highly recommended because it is one of the least expensive and most effective malaria treatments.

Typhoid

This is another illness that can be contracted by eating contaminated food and water. While you can prevent it from affecting you by being careful about what you eat and drink, you are always going to be safer if you simply get vaccinated for it before you travel.

It’s always best to look up what diseases are affecting the area you plan to travel to. If you know what to expect, you can be prepared and have the proper vaccinations taken and medications on hand to deal with most illnesses that you encounter.

How Men Think Differently Than Women

*This post is contributed to Spicy Scribbler Blog

This goes without saying, but we’ll mention it anyways: men and women are vastly different creatures. While some girls prefer romantic gestures and spontaneous first moves, there are guys who are more into MILF dating and one-night stands than they are into love at first sight or buying gifts. Since there are more differences between how boys and girls see things than there are similarities, it’s only natural to wonder why the ways these two genders think are so different.

Of course, there are certain standards and expectations society has imposed that makes men and women do different things, but in truth, the reason behind guys and girls thinking differently lies much more deeply – in fact, it’s our brains that are on opposite sides of the spectrum.

A One-Track Mind

There’s a reason why women are so famous for multitasking, and it’s not because men are dumb. During his “Freedom of Speech” show, stand-up comedian and Hollywood actor Eddie Griffin made a witty remark about how a guy’s brain works.

Griffin says: “A man’s got a one-track mind. When we’re watching the game, that’s all we are doing. We’re so into the game it’s like we’re playing it.” Although it’s a fairly dull comment, it makes a lot of sense if actually think about it.

No woman will ever admit it, but it’s a fact that almost all girls have their minds on many different things at any given time. On the other hand, you know that if you’re thinking about something, that’s the only thing going through your head. This is one of the main reasons why guys tend to get “in the zone” much more often than women.

Another good explanation comes from the fact that guys are prone to visualizing, while women often think in words. It might seem confusing, but try it this way – if you’re confused about something and you try to solve it in your head, you’ll usually see pictures and images of different scenarios in order to come to a solution. Contrary to this, the ladies form sentences which they put into focus in the goal of resolving a situation.

Tabula Rasa

The popular opinion about women being smarter than men doesn’t really come from male stupidity – but from our ability to think about nothing.

Turning your mind off, even for a couple of minutes, is something girls simply cannot do. Whether you’re playing video games, lifting weights in the gym, or mowing the lawn, there’s a good chance that your mind is a blank page at that point. It’s one of the greatest gifts man was given, but it’s also something women wrongly perceive as a lack of intelligence.

However, it’s a fact that women are generally more stressed than men. They’re always on the move, they like to “use” weekends to do chores instead of relaxing and sleeping in, they think too much about their appearance and about what others may think of them – and it’s all because their minds are working around the clock. Instead of looking down on men for being able to have an empty mind whenever they want, they should be envious of this ability.
