Remind me

to monitor my blood glucose


Holidays are a time to let loose and enjoy, and one of the most popular ways to do this is by savouring a multitude of different dishes. This can also be a buzzkill for the holidays for a person with diabetes as more often than not, these eatables are health hazards for them. So, as a person with diabetes, how else can you enjoy your holidays?

  1. Start your day early- Going for morning jogs helps you stay fit even on holiday, and gives a refreshing start to a whole day of fun!
  2. Take a Walk- Sightseeing is one of the most fun things to do on a holiday, and when you do this by walk, staying healthy becomes a fun activity.
  3. Laugh- Yes, that's right! Laughter is definitely the best medicine around, so find something to tickle your funny bone and give your holiday a positive boost.
  4. Learn about cuisines- The place you are holidaying at can have an intriguing cuisine. Don't second-guess its nutrition content. Finding out what foods you can enjoy and what you need to stay away from can be a great way to learn about its culture!
  5. Do something spontaneous- Diabetes doesn't hold you back from adding some spice to life. Pop outside for some coffee, catch a mid-afternoon movie or go shopping- small ways to have great fun!

Being a person with diabetes does not mean that you can have lesser fun during your holidays. Remember to monitor your blood glucose regularly so that you know your health status, consult your doctor before you set off on a trip, and most importantly, be prepared to have a great holiday!
