There‚Äôs nothing quite like taking a vacation to get your mind and body back in shape. Being able to disconnect from the stresses of everyday life is a huge benefit of travel, but unfortunately, that also means exposure to new germs. 

At Lisell Travel, we understand the importance of staying healthy while you explore the world. That’s why we’ve put together these seven essential tips to help you avoid getting sick while you’re traveling.

Stay Hydrated 

Proper hydration is the foundation of a strong immune system. Start by drinking plenty of water in the days leading up to your departure, and don’t forget to carry a reusable water bottle with you. Avoid excessive caffeine or alcohol consumption, as they can be dehydrating. Remember to replenish your fluids after enjoying a beverage or that extra cappuccino.

Get Enough Sleep 

Quality rest is vital for a robust immune system. Aim for 7-9 hours of sleep per night, and try to stick to your regular sleep routine even when you’re away. If you’re crossing time zones, adjust to the new schedule quickly with sunlight and fresh air. Be cautious with caffeine and use melatonin if needed. For long-haul flights, consider upgrading your seat for added comfort and rest.

Vitamins & Supplements 

While we encourage healthy eating, it’s wise to supplement your diet with key vitamins. Take a daily multivitamin, and consider adding vitamin C or zinc supplements, which may reduce the severity and duration of colds. Start taking them in advance of your travels for the best results.

Good Hygiene 

In the midst of your adventures, you’ll encounter more people and germs. Maintain proper hygiene practices by washing your hands frequently, using hand sanitizer when soap and water aren’t available, and packing alcohol-based sanitizing wipes to clean surfaces, especially on planes and in public areas.

Sanitizing hands can help maintain proper hygiene when traveling.

Allow for Downtime 

Give your body the rest it deserves, particularly when traveling in new and challenging environments. Schedule some downtime each day to relax or catch a quick nap. It’s tempting to pack your itinerary, but taking a break will help you stay healthy.

Keep Stress in Check 

Stress can compromise your immune system. Reduce it by allowing extra time for travel, practicing breathing exercises like box breathing, and considering supplements such as CBD, L-theanine, or magnesium, based on your doctor’s advice.

Get Exercise 

Stay active during your journey to boost your immune system, digestion, and reduce stress. You don’t need intense workouts; simply incorporate walking, easy stretches in your room, and fun activities like yoga on the beach, a round of golf, or a scenic hike.
