Traveling for work, again? Here are Four Items to Help you Stay Healthy and Focused!

With an uptick in corporate travel, it is imperative to practice positive mental and physical habits in order to stay healthy and focused while on the road. Traveling can be disruptive to our circadian rhythm, which can elevate stress levels and weaken our immune system. Traveling for work (and fun) can create its own set of challenges, yet your ability to be prepared and ready to be a healthy 'road warrior' is entirely at your fingertips. This is especially true when you prepare for potential stressors. These five items have helped me to stay healthy and relaxed during my road routine!

Hydration – Water is your friend and is crucial for several reasons. Staying hydrated helps regulate body temperature, lubricate joints, prevent infections, and keep organs functioning properly. Another win - hydration improves sleep quality, cognition, and mood. While traveling, especially flying, drink at least 8 ounces of water per hour. My favorite refillable travel companion is a Swell Bottle - Light and compact with excellent thermal control.

Pro Tip: If I am going to drink close to 100oz of water per day, I want it to taste good! Whether the goal is hydration, rejuvenation, or energy, Nunn is by far my go-to choice. With several options of flavors and convenient tabs to drop into your Swell bottle, their approach to healthy and socially responsible products is perfect for the seasoned traveler as well as those in tune with their fitness goals. Bonus if you also workout while on the road as Nunn - will check both boxes!

Snacks – One of the most challenging areas to balance while traveling is nutrition. Packing your own snacks that are travel-friendly can keep you rejuvenated, whether it is for a quick bite, unplanned delay, or arrival to a destination without an option for a meal. I have become a fan of GoMacro - Everything is 100% plant-based and comes from organic and non-GMO certified growers who follow sustainable farming practices. All of their products provide nutritional benefits without any additives or preservatives. They also taste amazing and are a constant companion in my bag.

Clean Air – Making recycled public air in a confined space pleasant can be challenging. Diffusers used with essential oils help to achieve more balanced emotions, promote rest and relaxation, and support a healthy immune system. Now more than ever, freshening and purifying the air in a hotel room is key to supporting healthy respiratory functions. My favorite, perfect for tucking into a carry-on, is the Actpe Travel Diffuser - Multiple power supply options, including USB, make it an easy item for on-the-go.

Lavender Oil - It is a bit of a 'table stakes' item to pair with your diffuser. Lavender oil's sedative properties make it a useful oil for calming both emotions and physical concerns such as minor skin injuries, cramping, and sinus congestion. It's also used to relieve headaches, anxiety, and insomnia. While lavender is usually at the top of the list, I often mix it with lemon, peppermint, or eucalyptus oils for a complementary blend. Research to find your perfect blend, knowing lavender will consistently be your base.

Imagine the peace of mind you can achieve when regardless of the circumstances, you are hydrated, satiated, and relaxed, knowing you planned ahead and were ready to tackle whatever came your way. It is an excellent way to ensure you are at your best when it matters most!
