Ever get sick when you travel? Or feel a nasty headache the next day? Well, if this is you, you may not be fueling your body with what it needs to stay healthy and hydrated. Don’t worry, today we break down our top 4 tips to keep you healthy and happy next time you travel.
Tip 1: Drink CF(Rehydrate) Immunity+
The best way to hydrate and prepare for a day of travel is with CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+. Not only does CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ contain electrolytes for premium hydration, it also has immune-supporting ingredients like Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Magnesium, and Zinc. This makes it a great way to prepare yourself for traveling. Ever get sick right after a plane ride? Well you’re not alone and it is pretty common when being around several people in such a small space. But CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ can help you combat any nasty bug or cold. It is formulated with functional nutrients that promote immunity and wellness when you need it most. Even if you are traveling by car, CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ can help you quickly hydrate yourself and replenish lost electrolytes.
Top 2: Eat a well balanced breakfast before you travel
When we have to get on the road early or take a 6 AM flight, it is so easy to skip breakfast—but this will cause more harm than good. On travel days, it is even more crucial to make breakfast a top priority. Some great travel day breakfast ideas are whole-wheat toast with 2 scrambled eggs and ½ an avocado (add veggies to your eggs for a bonus) or oatmeal with walnuts and blueberries. No matter what you decide to eat for breakfast, make sure it is packed with protein, fiber, healthy fats, and carbohydrates. If you’re in a rush, grab CF(Protein)® for a quick and convenient breakfast.
Tip 3: Pack more travel snacks than you think you’ll need
Even though we aren’t physically active when we travel on the road or in the air, we tend to get more hungry than we think. This may lead us to gobble down endless amounts of airplane cookies or stop at fast-food restaurants to get something greasy. We suggest preparing for this midday hunger with some nutritious snacks that will keep you energized for your travel day.
Some great travel snacks are:
- Raw walnuts and popcorn
- Banana and peanut butter
- Whole-wheat crackers and almond butter
- Celery and carrots with hummus
- Peanut butter and banana sandwich
Tip 4: Get a good night sleep
One way to make our travel day easier is by getting a good night’s sleep beforehand. It is so easy to leave packing until the last minute and spend all night trying to get our bags under 50 LBS, but getting 7-9 hours of sleep is crucial to kick off your vacation on the right foot. Even if you plan to sleep on the plane or in the car, try your best to get in your ZZZ the night before because let’s face it – sleeping on the plane or in the car isn’t necessarily the quality sleep our bodies deserve.
Now you are ready to take on your travel day and feel your best. Don’t forget to check out our website to purchase CF(Protein)® and CF(Rehydrate)® Immunity+ for premium hydration and nutrition.
