Top Tips on Staying Healthy at Festivals

Top Tips on Staying Healthy at Festivals

With lots of festivals taking place throughout the Summer and Glastonbury in full swing, it's incredibly important to stay healthy during the summer festival season. Here are my top tips on staying healthy at festivals!

Hydrate, Hydrate & Hydrate!

It’s so easy to dehydrate at festivals especially when dancing for hours to your favourite band or walking in the heat. Remember that alcohol dehydrates you so throughout the day, keep downing the water.

Alcohol

If you are drinking alcohol during a festival which I imagine is most likely. I suggest drinking water between alcoholic drinks to prevent dehydration.

Interestingly enough Prosecco & spirits with tonic waters such as Gin and Tonic have the least calories. Unfortunately the worst is Cider (and I’m from Somerset!) for it's high sugar content.

Exercise

When it comes to exercise, you will be walking all day long and dancing so there is no problem getting loads of exercise. Especially with Glastonbury Festival, which is as big as a city, taking an hour to walk across the whole site. Having a bike can help!

Food

Many of the alternative festivals, have an amazing array of healthy food options to choose from. One of my favourites at Glastonbury is the Thali Café with their amazingly tasty veg packed curries. Festivals such as Glastonbury, Womad and Bestival have lovely whole food cafes, serving freshly ground organic coffee and healthy whole some food all day long.

Suncream

As the 'Baz Luhrman' track once said always wear sun cream, and its true. Its super essential to protect yourself every day to stop you turning into a prune by the age of 30! Even when its cloudy as the sun can still make you burn especially if your chilling sitting on the grass all day!

One last thing!

Make sure you pack the baby wipes and wellies as you never know where your next shower is coming or how many rain showers there may be! So be prepared.

Above all though have a blast and be a free spirit, as festivals are places you can truly be yourself to find and discover new music, cultures and wholesome foods, staying healthy at festivals doesn't have to be boring!
