5 Tips to Feel Your Best While Traveling
Carry a reusable water bottle and hydrate
Hydrating is my number one priority when travelling. My tip: carry an empty reusable water bottle with you through security then fill it up at a water station before the flight. Here are some of my favorite water bottles that keep liquids cold all day long.
Pack a healthy meal and snacks
This takes a little assembling but it’s completely worth it in my book. Since we usually fly in the mornings, I like to prepare everything the night before and store in a light lunch box or reusable bag. My go-to’s usually consist of hard boiled eggs, mixed greens, leftover roasted veggies, and some gluten-free crackers. For snacks, I love a piece of fruit, almond butter packets, a grass-fed beef stick, or a protein bar. All of these options are disposable and easy to pack ensuring that you’re ready for a long trip ahead.
Stand up every 30 minutes-1 hour
Halfway through flights my hip-flexers scream to be stretched out after sitting for a consecutive amount of time. To get the blood flowing, stand up every 30 minutes to an hour or use the restroom to give your body a little break from sitting. If you don’t feel comfortable asking the person next to you to get out for the restroom, just stand. Your body will thank you later. Another pro tip: wear comfy sneakers.
No matter what type of skin you have, traveling most likely affects your natural “glow” either by drying it out, or overproducing oil. I always head to the airport with a clean makeup-free face and carry on a few of my favorite skincare products. Whenever I feel the need, I grab my toner and chia seed oil to keep it hydrated and fresh, especially this time of year.
Pack light in one bag
Travelling is much easier when you are organized in one carry-on bag. There’s nothing worse than trying to tote around multiple bags such as a purse, backpack, makeup bag.. etc. Make it easy on yourself and invest in a backpack to store all of your carry-on items in one place. This makes it much more convenient getting on and off the plane without straining your back.
