The travel season is just around the corner, but travel in this year and possibly for years to come will be far different than before.
COVID-19 has highlighted the need to travel safely and maintain good health, in addition to all the new health and safety precautions that need following. Here are some tips from our experts at Zulal Wellness Resort by Chiva-Som to help you stay healthy and enjoy your travels.
Drinking enough water is vital for your overall health, especially if you are travelling during the hotter months or heading for higher altitudes. Always carry a water bottle with you to prevent the onset of headaches and even lethargy.
The most important thing you can do while travelling is sleep. Try to stick to a similar sleep routine to the one you follow at home.
TAKE YOUR VITAMINS
A daily multivitamin can help you meet your nutritional needs while travelling.
PACK HEALTHY SNACKS
Sometimes when we travel, we end up eating and drinking more than usual, but exploring new destinations doesn’t have to compromise your healthy lifestyle. Pack your own healthy travel snacks that are high in protein. Good options include trail mix, nuts, eggs and protein bars.
Avoid sitting for long periods and ensure you stay active while travelling. If you’re on a long flight, get up frequently and walk the aisles. Waiting for your flight? Don’t sit around the airport going on your phone – get up and walk around.
BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
Keep your immune system activated with healthy food. Dried cherries are a natural source of melatonin, which can help you sleep when jetlagged. When your body has proper rest, it can fight sickness and disease better. You can pack dried cherries in your carry-on to use as a healthy snack on flights, and concentrated cherry juice in your checked luggage for later.
GET YOUR DOSE OF VITAMIN D
A key influence on your internal clock is sunlight. You may be able to ease into your new time zone and adopt a good routine by exposing yourself to daylight.
