Traveling is one of my favorite passions, but it can cause health issues if you don’t take care of yourself. I have managed to figure out how to stay healthy while traveling.


Check out the time difference between where you live and where you will be traveling and move your bedtime to get closer to the bedtime you will be having during your trip. You can start preventing jet lag a week in advance. For example, if you are going somewhere that is 3 hours behind you (NY to CA), when it is 10 PM EST it will be 7 PM PST, you can start moving closer to a PST schedule. About a week to 4 days before you leave on your trip, try to push your bedtime back a half hour every day and set the alarm to wake up a half hour earlier each day.

Take Elderberry

Use Sambucol Black Elderberry Gummies can be a great way support your family’s health while traveling. These amazing tasting gummies from Sambucol provide strong immune system support to help you and your family stay healthy throughout the year and can be taken every day for continuous immune support. Black Elderberries have been recognized for centuries for their immune-supportive properties. They are high in flavonoids called anthocyanins, which give the berries their bluish-purple color. These flavonoids have antioxidant properties, and they also have been recorded to have a high oxygen radical absorption capacity (ORAC), which is the scale by which antioxidant activity is measured.*

Sambucol Gummies contain no artificial flavoring, dairy products, eggs, gelatin, gluten, peanuts, preservatives, wheat or yeast. They are pectin-based, (derived from orange peels) which means they won’t stick to your teeth and won’t melt or stick together! You can use Sambucol Black Elderberry Gummies can be a great way support your family’s health while traveling. Look for Sambucol products at select Target stores and most drug and grocery stores.

Don’t Overdo it

When traveling, you can stay healthy by not overdoing it. Don’t try to cram everything into one day, but instead pace yourself and take your time.

Drink Lots of Water

Start getting hydrated before your trip by making sure you are getting the required amount of water every day. When you are on the plan, skip the caffeine and alcohol and opt for water instead.

Stay Hydrated

Keep Your Routine

If you are in the habit of working out, keep your routine. Exercising helps you sleep better and avoid stress and anxiety.

Hand Sanitizer

When soap is not available, hand sanitizer can keep you healthy when traveling.  Avoid contracting germs that can cause sickness, by keep hand sanitizing wipes in your carry bag.

Wear Socks

Don’t forget to wear socks to the airport. I hate socks, but I don’t want to be barefoot at the airport. The thought is traumatizing. I’m not dramatic or anything! It seriously is gross, and if it has happened to you, you should know to bring or wear socks to the airport from now on. I am just here to remind you to do the right thing and wear socks.

Stay Warm

If you want to be comfortable while traveling, it is best to layer your clothes so that you can peel or add layers as needed. On flights, I like to bring a scarf that can double as a blanket. It keeps me cozy and comfy on the plane ride and helps me avoid the stress of being cold.

Don’t Skip Meals

Try not to skip meals while you are on vacation. You run the risk nutrient deficiencies linked to fatigue, poor mental function, and other health concerns. When you skip meals, especially while traveling, you are at greater risk of headaches, fatigue, extreme hunger, and even infection.


You should always wear SPF and especially when you are on vacation. You don’t want to end up a sunburn.
