7 Tips To Stay Healthy While Traveling

After many years of traveling, I’ve realized that your health is your most significant possession. In this post I will share with you 7 top tips that I have learnt to help you stay healthy while traveling.

How To Stay Healthy While Traveling

1. TRAVEL INSURANCE

First and foremost; don’t forget to purchase travel insurance. Travel insurance is something that all travelers should invest in, and there is no one-size-fits-all option, so it is important to educate yourself beforehand. 

Knowing the possible risks of your destination makes it simpler to select an insurance policy that will cover you for every situation you may encounter. As a result, you can enjoy your vacation to the fullest, secure in knowing that if you become sick, you’ll have access to the best medical treatment available.

2. KEEP YOURSELF HYDRATED

One of the simplest methods to keep healthy when traveling is to drink as much water as possible. Water will hydrate you, provide energy, and keep your system clean. When traveling, especially when flying, staying hydrated is essential. Drinking enough of water while in the air and during the remainder of your travels can help you start your trip off healthily. 

Keep in mind that the stale airline air is enough to make anyone feel sick. Hydrating is especially important if you’re going to a hot place and will be outside in the sun. It is also highly recommended if you want to consume alcohol or go on an adventure vacation where you will be physically active.

3. WASH YOUR HANDS FREQUENTLY

We’re all used to washing our hands on a regular basis, but this isn’t always possible when traveling. Germs are everywhere, on airplanes, hostel knobs, dirty cash, filthy toilets, and even ATM keypads. Always wash your hands before eating and after handling money, or use hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol. Carrying a pocket-sized hand sanitizer is usually the best option.

4. GET ENOUGH REST

Sleep is critical for good health, and it is more important when traveling. While attending parties, touring, and taking excursions, it might be simple to stay up all night. However, when you aren’t struggling to remain awake, all of these things will be considerably more fun. Make time to sleep when traveling to maintain your immune system robust and healthy. It will also assist you in being attentive and productive and have more fun.

 

5. EAT HEALTHY MEALS

When you’re on vacation, don’t skip meals because you’re too busy doing everything else and don’t indulge yourself in too much junk food. Sure you will want to taste all the local treats but supplement this by eating healthy food such as eggs, yogurt, fruit, vegetables, and granola bars.This will not only help you stay healthy while you’re on the road, but it will also enable you to spend less on occasional meals.

 



6. TAKE YOUR VITAMINS!

Make it a practice to keep vitamins and medications on hand just in case. I usually include allergy medication, ibuprofen, aspirin, multi-vitamins and vitamin C pills in my carry-on. 

It is a good practice to have tea or hot water first thing in the morning before starting the day and if you’re feeling chilly during the day.

 

7. PROTECT YOUR SKIN

Always consider the climate of the location you’re visiting and plan appropriately. Continue to drink plenty of water, moisturize often, and use sunscreen as needed. If you’re in a hot sunny location, don’t forget that too much exposure can give you a heat stroke and that can take you down for a couple of days, so carry a hat, sunscreen and wear a t-shirt when possible.
