Traveling To Your Adventure?
Tips for Staying Healthy
There is nothing worse than getting sick on the way to your adventure. Air flights and long car rides can be tough on your body and immune system. As long as you take some time to care for yourself, you will stay healthy to enjoy your vacation.
Travel stress can cause your body to be hypersensitive. Plan ahead when packing and don’t leave things for the last minute. Make a list a couple weeks ahead of time and start ticking away at tasks that need to happen before departure. Give yourself plenty of time to pack and use and checklist as well so you don’t spend all your time thinking about what you might forget. Give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination. Rushing not only stressed your out mentally, but physically as well. Try and organize travel paperwork in one central folder. The more organized you can be, the less stressful your travel will turnout.
It is important to stay hydrated when traveling. Planes tend to circulate dry air and can suck moisture out of your body. Drink plenty of water while in flight rather than coffee, soda, or alcohol which can dehydrate you. Even if it calls for more pee stops, drink plenty of liquid while road tripping as well.
Boost your immune system-
Supplement your diet and increase your Vitamin C and Echinacea intake. These are known to increase your immune system.
Wash your hands-
Make sure you wash your hands frequently when traveling. On planes and in cars, you are in close proximity with the public leaving your body vulnerable to human viruses and bacteria.
Take the time to stretch your legs and move around. Getting your system and blood moving will help you feel awake and full of energy.
Start living in the time zone you are traveling to as soon as possible. This will ease transition and help you make the most of your adventure. If you feel the need to nap, make it a catnap. Long naps can make it hard for your body to adjust to new time.
Vacation should not be stressful. Take the time to relax, take in the sights and eat well. Don’t over program your vacation and leave no time for zoning out.
