Traveling This Summer? Here Are 6 Ways to Stay Healthy So You Can Focus On the Fun.

I am well versed in traveling.  I grew up overseas and my father had two months of paid vacation every year.  Imagine that!  We would hop on a plane and travel to India, Europe and the US for almost the entire summer.  I have memories of getting ill many times while traveling as a child, but don’t recall dealing with constipation, fatigue, ankle swelling and bloating.  I don’t remember thinking much about drinking water, trying to get exercise and paying attention to what I eat.  Alas, everything changes with age.  Gone are the days of eating the bag of blue corn tortilla chips on a jetblue flight across country or drinking a cup of tomato juice because it just taste so good at 30,000 feet high (there is actually science behind why it taste better high up).  I now think mindfully about preparing my body prior to travel and the choices I make while traveling.  I’ve found that sticking with these 5 things keeps me at my best so I can enjoy my experience of traveling and recover quickly when I get home.
