3 Tips for Healthy Traveling

By Donna Stark

You've committed to living a healthier lifestyle and have, so far, found great success by doing so. You've never felt better, you're happy with the way you look, and your thinking is crystal-sharp. But you just found out you have to travel, and if your past trips are an indication of how this trip is going to be, you are going to need help! Don't arrive at your destination feeling tired, rundown, and unwell. There are some proactive steps you can take to maintain your overall well-being when your daily circumstances have changed. Take a look.

Quality Sleep

You know your body needs quality sleep, and deep down, you also know that even if you plan for it, you're not going to be able to sleep on the plane. So, make sure you are rested before you take a step out of your door. And that doesn't mean to only worry about the night before your travels. No matter how anxious you are about the trip or how busy you are at work, stay committed to your normal sleep schedule.


Traveling is stressful, and stress can wreak havoc on your overall health and wellness, so make sure you are staying on top of the nutrients your body needs, such as Vitamins B and C. Here are some reasons why these vitamins are so important.

  • Vitamin B - The B vitamins help your body by breaking down food, maintaining healthy blood cells, preventing migraines, improving the immune systems, and increasing energy
  • Vitamin C - Vitamin C boosts the function of your white blood cells, neutralizes free radicals, and optimizes your immune system

Although you may be tempted to grab one of those cold-fighting Vitamin C powders at the airport kiosk, try to pack a whole-food Vitamin C supplement instead. Those powders often have more sugar in them than you think.

Chiropractic Care

One last thing you should do before you leave for your trip is to head into The Joint Chiropractic for a quick and gentle adjustment. The adjustment your chiropractor provides will alleviate pain and discomfort by placing your body in proper alignment, easing muscle tension and strain, restoring joint function, and relaxing the body. On top of that, it will improve the function of your nervous system which will definitely have an impact on your overall well-being! With chiropractic care on your side, traveling couldn't be any easier!

Healthy Travels Ahead

Just because you are taking a break from your normal routine doesn't mean you need to take a break from good health. By following the steps above, you can look forward to a safe, healthy, and happy trip ahead.
