In the past 15 years, we have traveled to six continents. During that time, we found that travel can have many contradictory things at the same time: inspiration, inspiration, fun, relaxation and even energy. However, it can also be frustrating, exhausting, challenging, and sometimes even energy-consuming.
Unfortunately, early morning and late-night sightseeing often means a decline in sleep quality, and travelers tend to eat more exotic (and decadent) food than at home. Combined with long periods of low activity, such as extended flights, we can see that travel is both costly and demanding, and even affects physical and mental health.
As a frequent traveler, a large part of staying healthy is taking care of our health when we are not traveling. In this way, we start from a healthy baseline and the health challenges of travel are not a problem. If we are on the road, healthy, healthy, we will be better able to cope with airport stress, skipping meals, sleep disruptions and other travel challenges.
Want to know how to stay healthy on the go? Here are some of the best health travel tips we need to stay on the go, focus and the best.
Prepare your workout
With a range of simple and effective workouts, you can exercise anywhere. From ancient push-ups and sit-ups to stair walks and light aerobics, find the right work out for yourself.
YouTube is great, you can find free workouts anywhere you have an internet connection. There are also a lot of great workout apps you can do on the road.
Exercise while traveling
If you like to go sightseeing, rent a bicycle instead of taking a taxi, or if you are exploring a seaside city, you can take a kayak and float in the water. The choice is endless. Whatever you do, try to make it interesting and you will be more likely to stay healthy.
We like to walk while traveling. This is a great way to exercise, and it allows us to discover things that are not found in the car. You can choose to stroll through the beach or walk a few miles to the outdoor market. Just remember to put your shoes and adventure in your travel bag.
Bring the necessary fitness equipment
For me, the essential fitness equipment includes running shoes, socks and comfortable fitness equipment.
When we traveled on the road, I threw my yoga mat at the back of the car, I could exercise anywhere, and I had enough room to put it down. I don’t have a yoga mat when I fly, but if I can, I will try to book a hotel with a gym.

Start a new day
Whenever I can, I start a new day with freshly squeezed lemonade.
This is a habit that allows me to add extra vitamin C and make sure I start a new day by drinking more water. If you are keen, you can add a little cinnamon, 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar or grated ginger to get extra boost. This is a very easy habit when I live in Airbnb or an apartment with a kitchen. When I am at the hotel, I usually start a new day with a large glass of water.
Don’t forget to stretch
As a result, many travel bases are difficult to achieve our flexibility, including aircraft, increased walking and travel pressure. To offset this, I need at least five to ten minutes a day to stretch a few times.
Your muscles will thank you! In addition, stretching is a good pressure.
Keep track of what you eat
You don’t need to follow the food for each snack, but pay attention to what you eat. If you find that you eat too much or drink too much and are unhealthy for you, you should compromise. If I have a huge microphone and cheese for dinner at night, I will light up the breakfast food and make sure I have some vegetables for lunch the next day.
Plan to have a good night’s sleep
What makes me angry is how much our North American culture attaches importance to sleep.
Sleep deprivation is associated with many chronic health problems, and quality sleep is essential for physical and mental health, quality of life, and even safety. I know that if I don’t have a good night’s sleep, my work is inefficient, my complaints are poor, and I can’t enjoy life at all.
Bring a sleep mask, book a room in a quiet hotel, close the blinds, and even bring your own travel pillow to help you get a better night’s sleep.
When we travel, we walk more often than usual, so it is easy to dehydrate. To offset this, I tried to find a simple source of fresh drinking water, whether it was to find the nearest drinker or to store it on bottled water and leave extra things in the hotel room. You can keep your water by drinking lots of fresh fruit at breakfast, which is one of the best ways to keep moisture in the Galapagos Islands.
The plane is the most dehydrated because I often get off the plane and feel that the dry airplane air has sucked away every ounce of water from me. In order to offset the drying effect of the aircraft, I brought a light moisturizing product to my skin and ensured plenty of water.
Don’t ignore your mental health
Travel can be very stressful, especially if you put your schedule on the raft. I have been working very hard to push myself too hard to find myself moving from one place to another instead of really enjoying myself. When you leave home, try to pay special attention to when you feel uncomfortable.
On the other hand, many people struggle with grief, loneliness and even depression when they travel. If this is the case, the first step is to pay attention to your feelings and take any steps you need to start feeling better.
Take a moment to meditate
Of course, meditation may be the last thing when starting a week-long holiday in Mexico. In other words, meditation is especially helpful for staying grounded and relieving stress, even if you can manage only five minutes of meditation or the first thing in the morning.
Clearing your mind allows you to fully enjoy what you are going to experience and help you start your day, no matter what activities you are going to participate in.
