Travel Advice

Prepare for Jet Lag

Jet Lag can upset your sleep patterns and bring about depressive episodes.

In order to avoid this impacting your trip, plan time to rest after the flight, try to maintain your sleep patterns as much as possible and avoid drinking alcohol on the flight.

Maintain your Regular Routine

Try to maintain your routine and sleep patterns as best as possible.

If you have to be in bed by a certain time or need a certain amount of sleep, don’t let this slip just because you’re on holiday.

Eat Healthily

Diet can be a factor when coping with Depression.

If you find that eating healthily helps you, make sure you keep up your diet as best as possible while abroad.

Exercise

Much like diet, exercise can also help control the symptoms of Depression.

Taking time to exercise when on holiday can help control your condition and ensure it doesn’t affect your trip.

Medication

If you’re on anti depressants or other Medication, pack enough to last you for the duration of your trip, plus some extra, in case of delays or emergencies.

Also, split the Medication between separate bags, so that there is not the risk of losing it all if one bag was to go missing, and keep it on hand at all times.

Keep in Contact with your Doctor

Staying in touch with your Doctor and / or Home Support Network via phone or email can help you stay on track and get through any depressive episodes.
