Staying healthy on the road or abroad can be challenging. Especially when it comes to late nights, weather change and limited food options. This is why we’re sharing our travel must have’s with you. Stay healthy and well even when you’re on the go!
1. Protect the skin you’re in
It’s the only skin you have, so keep it safe. If you’re going to be in the sun, wear appropriate amounts of sunscreen (try to find a chemical free sunscreen) and don’t forget to re-apply! Sunglasses, a hat and umbrella are great additions too. It’s also important to moisturize as much as possible. Unrefined Shea butter is a great moisturizer.
Stay hydrated people! This means bringing a reusable water bottle with you, a shaker bottle, thermos or even a travel friendly water purifier. Depending on how hot the climate is, try eating foods rich in water like cucumbers, watermelon and other fruits and veggies!
3. Essential Oils
Bring your healing oils with you. Natural essential oils are great for stress relief and random aches and pains. Pure lavender oil and peppermint oil are great multi-use remedies to take with you. Both provide natural sunburn relief in case you spend too much time in the sun. Plus, they can even boost your mood and keep you calm.
4. Healthy whole food snacks
Adequate snackage should be a high level priority in life. SO make sure you have whole food, nutrient dense snacks on deck. If the weather’s hot, consider freezing your snacks the night before, so they’ll stay fresh and tasty. Ie. frozen fruit, Bliss Balls, or our Nut Butter Boats. Our Smoothie Boosters are a super easy way to add quick nutrition into your day.
Headphones, earplugs, your lucky pillow, take it all. I know I said earlier that snacks are a high level priority, but catching adequate Z’s is right up there too.
Download your favourite upbeat jams prior to your trip. If you don’t have one already, make a vacay playlist! Also a pre bedtime playlist too. It’ll help you stick to your sleep routine.
Don’t forget to bring a couple books you’ve been meaning to read, or a fun magazine. This will help you zone out and relax.
