Summer is a popular time for many people to travel. If you’re planning
on traveling now or in the near future, it is important to stay safe and
healthy. Here are some of our favorite tips that will help your body stay
healthy throughout your travels:
Keep Your Hands Clean
Traveling usually introduces you to fun, new experiences. It also can introduce
you to germs that make you sick. Wash your hands after touching things
that are commonly used by other people. Things like airport security bins,
door knobs, and ATMs are common places that a lot of people touch. Wash
your hands after touching these items. We recommend trying to clean your
hands before your eat or touch your face. If you don’t have access
to soap and a sink, carry hand sanitizer with you and use it when you need to.
Stock Up on Snacks
Traveling can be unpredictable. Daily excursions or restaurant plans may
not always work out the way you intend. You may end up skipping a meal,
delaying a meal or getting hungry earlier than expected. Carry snacks
with you. We suggest having snacks that are nutritious and filling like
almonds, berries or granola bars.
Find a Place to Exercise
Working out is the last thing most people think about when they’re
traveling. We suggest against abandoning your workout routine! Find ways
to keep your heart rate up while traveling. Whether it’s finding
the hotel gym or going on a long, adventurous hike, we promise your body
will thank you for giving it the exercise it needs.
Depending on what type of trip you’re going on, it may be difficult
to find time to rest. Your body needs rest and sleep to rejuvenate itself.
Sleeping for at least eight hours a night while traveling will help your
body stay healthy.
