Traveling overseas or driving cross-country this summer? Keep travel germs and unwanted hanger attacks at bay with these simple tips for staying healthy while you are on the road this summer.
Before your trip:
- Boost up your immune system by stocking up on vitamins before you go. Make sure you have enough to take with you on your trip!
- Throw hand sanitizer and disinfectant wipes into your carry-on to fight off those evil germs in an instant.
Plane or Train:
- Take bathroom breaks! Get up and walk around periodically (especially on long flights) to increase circulation.
- Remember to stay hydrated. Avoid soda and other sodium packed beverages and stick to water throughout the flight.
- Don't forget to pack your favorite NatureBox snacks and fresh fruits and veggies to refuel you throughout the day.
- Avoid the gas station junk and stock your car with healthy foods. Pack a cooler with fruits, veggies, yogurt and prepared homemade sandwiches along with your favorite NatureBox snacks.
- For those extra long trips, be sure to take a few breaks! When you stop for gas and/or food, take a short walk to get some activity into your day.
Some great NatureBox options include:
- Nut and seed containing snacks that provide protein and omega 3 fats: Country Ranch Sunflower Kernels, Jalapeño Cashews, Teriyaki Turkey Jerky, Pistachio Power Clusters or Sweet Blueberry Almonds
- Low in sodium: Probiotic Power Mix, Big Island Pineapple, Dried California Peaches
- Good source of at least one vitamin or mineral: Chocolate Chia Granola or Apple & Cinnamon Oatmeal
During the Trip:
- Even though it’s a vacation, remember to stay active. Explore a new city by foot or use the hotel fitness center.
- Stock the mini fridge with healthy snacks and breakfast foods.
- Make sure to get enough sleep and drink lots of water.
