Everyone loves to travel for pleasure.
But not everyone is eager to travel for business. Either way you travel, there are a lot of things to consider, such as the time, the accommodation and not least of all, health and wellness while away from home.
If you are going overseas for whatever reason, you may want to consider these suggestions to stay healthy while doing things without the comfort of home or your loved ones:
We know this is not easy considering the time difference where you are going, the sudden change of temperature compared to what you are used to. What you can do is sleep on the plane, especially if it is a long flight. It will be challenging, of course, but do what you can and be as comfortable as possible. This way, when you get to your destination, you will be coherent and able attend to what needs your attention albeit the jet lag you may not be able to avoid.
Drink plenty of water
Hydrate and hydrate often. This is even more necessary when you are on a long flight. Drinking plenty of water may also help you avoid jet lag, and that in itself is a huge relief when you get to your destination. While at it, you may also want to consume light meals to keep your energy.
Walk as much as you can
Walk while waiting for your flight and walk while on your flight (when you are not sleeping and resting, that is) as it is a good way to keep the blood flowing. This way, you will still have an exercise, no matter how little. Since you are on a long flight, you could avoid sitting for long periods and also minimize the chance of having varicose veins, the chances of which, by the way, increase even when you only take a single long flight in a year.
Exercise before and after a long flight
You can run or have a high-intensity workout, whichever works best for you. Others prefer running, but you can always choose which exercise suits your schedule and your mood. You would be surprised how good it feels after. In any case, you need to take care of your body wherever in the world you may be.
