Emslie’s Floreat Pharmacy With Practical Advice For Your Summer Holidays
With the summer holidays getting closer and the festivities of Christmas just around the corner, our team here at Emslie’s Floreat Pharmacy are preparing for the busy holiday season ahead.There are many ways to prepare for the summer holidays in anticipation of the usual things that can spoil what should be a fun filled and enjoyable time of the year, most of which are avoidable with some sensible preparation.Holidays are supposed to offer rest and relaxation, but often people can find them disappointingly stressful.The most important part of a holiday is to rest and recuperate from the stresses of everyday work and living.It is not uncommon for people to head off on their much needed holidays to have a “great time” cramming in as much as possible to each day, and then returning home absolutely exhausted.
When sensible preparation and common sense prevailing, a holiday can be enjoyable and stress free for the whole family.

Simple ways to prevent avoidable problems during your summer holidays include:
Make sure your family wear hats and use plenty of sunscreen when outdoors.
When travelling overseas with children make sure that all their vaccinations are up to date.
Try to maintain the usual daily routine for younger children, e.g nap time.
Avoid eating too much junk food and drinks that have a high sugar content– try and choose take away food outlets which offer healthy options on their menus.
Plan for travel sickness, upset tummies, insect bites, cuts and bruises by putting together a basic travel first aid kit.
Pack and label any medications that are needed and keep stored in a cool, dry container.
Avoid excursions that involve lots of traveling as this can be too much for some of the younger children, resulting in parents dealing with grumpy tired kids.
Alternate your days between physical activities and relaxation, to avoid being frazzled at the end of your holiday.
Be cautious of swimming in unfamiliar areas and make sure to read all safety signage.
Do not attempt adventure sports unless you have the correct equipment and are with a trained professional.
