Tips for Healthy, Happy Travels!
Will there be a meal served on your flight? Are you planning to eat at the airport? What are the dining options near to your hotel? Plan ahead by calling the places you will be visiting and researching the area.
Bring an empty water bottle to fill up once you get past security at the airport. Staying hydrated prevents your sinus cavities from drying out on the plane. Eating fresh fruit will also help you with hydration.
Pack a SnackApple, oranges, and bananas are the original fast food! Toss a few in your carry-on for a snack.
Hydrate Your Skin
When traveling, skin becomes dehydrated and dull due to climatic changes, long-haul flights, modifications in diet, additional stresses, etc. Apply intense moisturizer the night before you are going to fly. This will help increase hydration in your skin!
Avoid Salt and Sugar
Dont rely on salted nuts or processed food while travelling. The extra sodium will dehydrate you during the flight. Also, avoid excess sugars, caffeine and alcoholic beverages to minimize travel- related health conditions.
Travel is great living healthy food, lots of activity, fresh air, and all those stairs! Get up and stretch or walk around to keep circulating going on a long flight.
Start your day off by fueling up on a heartily plant-based breakfast. Choose whole grains and foods high in fiber to fill you up and give you energy.
Wash your hands often, keep your nails clean, and avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth. Pack hand sanitizer or bacteria killing wipes in case you cant get to a sink to wash your hands before eating.
Planning to eat at the street or hotel? Be sure to chose plant-based, high-fiber, nutritional meals. Avoid unhealthy-looking restaurants. Meat should be well cooked and, in some places, avoided altogether.
Getting a good nights rest is optimal for long travel days. Being well rested will help your immune system stay at the tip of its game.
