The holiday season typically involves a lot of travel. Bustling airports, busy highways, and packed trains. Winter is also flu season and rampant with germs with all of these people around!
When I travel this time of year, I take extra precautions for staying healthy during my travels.
— About a week before I travel, I start increasing my immune boosters. Aside from regular vitamins, Elderberry syrup is my go-to, and it works like a charm. I make sure to get enough sleep so that my body isn’t beaten down, and take my elderberry!
— Pack your vitamins and immune boosters to take with you. I can’t even count how many times I felt an illness coming on during my travels due to the abundance of germs I was surrounded by on airplanes and public transportation. Having your arsenal with you to combat it right away, before it sets in, is key.
— Pack your food. It can be hard (or extremely expensive!) to eat healthy foods in airports and while traveling. Pack yourself a healthy and easily transportable meal and snacks, so you don’t have to go hungry.
— Bring the antibacterial wipes or your favorite bacteria killing essential oil.
What do you do to keep the germs at bay as you travel? Leave a comment below — I’m always looking for new ideas!
