By Kapiva Editorial

Everybody loves to travel, whether it is for a business trip or a much-needed vacation with your loved ones. Having said that travel can affect your health badly, if you are not careful. Here are a few travel tips that will help you stay safe and healthy, no matter which end of the world you are heading to.

1. Enhance Your Immune System

See that you consume immune-boosting food and drink lots of vegetable juice prior to your trip. Air travel or even travelling by train can be a strenuous. Drinking fresh juices every day and getting ample amount of zinc, Vitamin C and Vitamin D3 in your diet helps to strengthen your immunity so that your system is prepared to tackle any kind of infection or virus.

2. Layer It Up

If you are travelling during the winter or it seems to be particularly chilly outdoors, be sure to carry a light blanket or lined jacket. It helps you stay snug and warm. This is imperative for healthy travelling as staying warm preserves your energy. Also, to keep the temperature of your body at optimal across varying temperature zones, dress up in layers, just to be on the safe side.

3. Exercise A Bit

Immune system protection is enhanced when you exercise every day. You can check and see whether your hotel room has a gym. You can even do some push-ups, squats, lunges or tricep dips without leaving your hotel room. Take a walk in and around the vicinity or even make use of the hotel’s swimming pool. Staying active and alert keeps you healthy and strong.

4. Take Your Own Personal Care Products with You

No matter how tempted you are to use the shampoo and soap available at the hotel, bring your own toothpaste, soap, shampoo, sunscreen, mouthwash and other personal care products. You can trust your own items while the hotel’s products may be loaded with toxic chemicals. It is not worth taking this risk.

These are just a few points to keep in mind when travelling near or far away. It will help you stay active, alert, safe and healthy. Have a  happy and safe journey!
