One of the biggest struggles for me while traveling is managing to take care of myself. I tend to eat a lot of food in restaurants instead of cooking, I can find myself sitting on planes for days at a time, instead of exercising, and I fall out of many of my healthy habits when I’m on the road. Here are some tips for keeping yourself healthy, looking good and feeling your best, no matter what your time zone is!
1) A Good Skin Care Regime
Happy healthy skin can make a big difference to your mood and emotions. It’s important that you develop a regular routine and take enough of your products with you overseas when you travel, so that you can maintain your skincare regime. Dermalogica Active Moist can be a great product when you’re traveling a lot. It can help prevent dryness associated with long flights. I personally love Dermalogica products so feel free to browse their range and find something that works for you.
2) Don’t Skip Your Probiotics While Away
I was taking probiotics before I went away on a trip and left them at home. My stomach didn’t appreciate this sudden change in not only my routine, but the change of diet, and reacted badly. It’s important to minimise the stresses you put on your body, so try to keep your probiotics and other supplements on schedule no matter where you are.
3) Walk, Walk, Walk
One of the best things about traveling is walking around and discovering new places. Walking is also an easy form of exercise that’s light impact on the joints and helps ensure that you easily burn off all those delicious desserts and tasty treats you’re indulging in. If you’re heading a few metro stops away, while not consider walking? Not only will you save a little money, you’ll burn some calories, get some fresh air and get to see more of your new destination.
I’m not going to tell you not to drink, as that can be a really fun way to meet new people and have new experiences. But, make sure you don’t drink too much. Find a balance between having a few drinks, but not suffering through hangovers back-to-back on your trip.
5) Have a Backup!
It’s really important to plan for the worst, whether you’re taking a road trip across your home country or exploring somewhere more exotic. Planning for the worst means if it does happen, you can handle it with grace and ease without destroying your holiday. For example, travel insurance is absolutely essential. If you’re doing a car trip, why not have some spare car parts, and spare batteries in case of an emergency.
Traveling is a lot of fun, especially if you take proper care of yourself. Follow these simple tips to be feeling your best no matter how far you are from home.
