Secrets to Staying Healthy While Traveling

I can already feel my excitement building as I reach into our closet for my trusty travel backpack. Packing can be a pain, but it means the start of an adventure, and priceless memories that come along with it. But nothing can put a damper on traveling like feeling sick while you're doing it.  Do you always feel unhealthy when you’re traveling? Do you have a relatively healthy lifestyle the majority of the time, but then struggle as soon as your routine changes or you jet off to somewhere new? If you’re always left feeling exhausted, lethargic, and gross (thanks to poor food choices), then you need to do something about it - and fast. Here are some helpful tips to make sure you’re as healthy as possible when you travel.


The key is water. We all know that hydration is so important for your health in general, but when it comes to travel (and flying in particular), you need to make sure that you’re drinking enough water. It’s hard to remember when you’re on the go, but keep a bottle with you at all times for this reason. Try to refill and drink it multiple times, and schedule in bathroom breaks as needed.


Next up, you’re going to want to try and do your best to nail your nutrition too. It’s tough when you’re moving around a lot, and sometimes you just have to grab what’s convenient. Just do your best to plan ahead and bring healthy options to snack on or eat as healthier meals throughout the day. Obviously there will be days of delicious food that isn't the best for you, but the more healthier choices you can make while you’re traveling, the better.


And finally, if you really want to make sure that your body is nice and healthy when you’re traveling, you need to get control of your sleep- especially if you're going on a longer, overseas flight. You may find that something like the below infographic can help, as you can actually pre-plan and alter your sleep before you go so that jet lag isn't an issue for you. (And trust me, you'll be thanking yourself there!) If you strategically look to adjust your sleep, and get better sleep on the plane, it’s really going to help you to stay healthy.
