While I am off on an adventure around California and New York City I thought that I would share with you my tips for staying healthy while travelling. I know many of you will be off on your own travels this summer so I hope you find them useful.
+ Before you fly ~ Flying can take it's toll on the body, especially long haul flights so before you travel make sure to drink a lot of water before you fly as your body can get dehydrated during the flight. It also helps with jet lag.
Try to eat a good healthy meal with plenty of greens as we all know airplane food is not the best! I also tend to suffer from travel sickness so it's best for me to eat beforehand as I know I won't eat a huge amount during the flight.
+ During the flight ~ Keep up with your hydration, guzzle that water! Also on the theme of hydration I like to whip all my make up off during the flight to try and keep my skin happy. If you have a facial oil then you can use it to protect your skin from drying out during the flight.
Try to sleep as it will help your body adjust to your new time zone and lets face it, is a good way to kill time during a long flight! I like to pop in my headphones and put on my eye mask to help me drift off.
Stretch! Yes I am one of those people who stretches everywhere, I love a good stretch while at my desk at work so while flying is no different. Move around as and when you can to get the blood flowing.
+ When you land ~ Hydrate again. Yep you may make many trips to the bathroom but trust me, your body will thank you for me. Also grab a green juice if you can as your body will need the nutrients, it will also help with your digestion.
