Prepare for Jet Lag
Jet Lag can upset your sleep patterns and bring about depressive episodes. To avoid this impacting your trip, plan time to rest after the flight, 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 must be in bed by a particular time or need a certain amount of sleep, don’t let this slip just because you’re on holiday.
Diet can be a factor when coping with Depression if you find that eating healthily helps you keep up your diet as best as possible while abroad.
Much like a diet, exercise can also help control the symptoms of Depression. Taking time to exercise on holiday can help prevent your condition and ensure it doesn’t affect your trip.
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 no risk of losing it all if one bag were to go missing, and keep it on hand at all times.
Staying in touch with your Doctor and Home Support Network via phone or email can help you stay on track and get through any depressive episodes.
