Japan travel tips: How to avoid getting sick during your vacation

Getting sick when you're on vacation is never fun. Fortunately, by following these tips, you can stay healthy during your trip:

Don't overwork yourself before you leave – According to the American Psychological Association, stress can weaken the immune system. With this in mind, it's important to avoid running around like crazy in the days leading up to your Japan vacation. Set aside enough time to prepare for your trip so you're not stressing out at the last minute.

Get plenty of sleep – While it can be difficult to adjust to a different time zone, you should still try to get a full eight hours of sleep each night while you're away. These tips for avoiding jet lag that we wrote about previously can help ensure that you get a good night's rest.

Wash your hands – "We all know to wash our hands after using the bathroom and before eating (if you don't, you need to make that a new habit), but while on vacation you really should wash your hands more than you think is necessary," states IntentBlog.com, an online lifestyle blog. "Your skin is your first line of defense and your hands specifically are always touching things and then touching your own face, mouth, or eyes."
