Healthy Travel Tip 4: Try To Stay Active
Whether you’re traveling by plane, train or automobile, one of the best ways to stay fit and healthy and fight off unwanted infections is exercise. Exercise will boost your energy and mood while traveling. Make time in your travel schedule to do something that gets your body moving and your heart racing, so you can reap the benefits of a healthy mind and body. You can start by scheduling your workouts into your traveling scheduling. Take advantage of the hotel gym. If there is no hotel gym, go for a walk or run to explore your new surroundings.
Healthy Travel Tip 5: Wash Your Hands Regularly and Sanitize Surfaces
This might seem like an obvious way to stay healthy, but it is surprising how many people forget how important it is to follow through. When you travel, you can come into contact with surfaces that many other people have touched. Using handrails, touching counters and opening doors are all things we do without much thought. Often, those surfaces are the dirtiest. Even if you don't think your hands are dirty, they probably are if you're traveling.
If you are traveling by plane, train or bus, it is important to sanitize your seating area. This is especially true if you are traveling with children. An adult might refrain from touching all the surfaces in an area, but the same cannot be said for children. Sanitize your seat, armrests, table back, headrest and airflow nozzles and buttons. It is uncertain how often these areas are cleaned.
Just a little common sense and a tiny bit of preparation can help you stay healthy during travel.
