3 ways to stay healthy when you travel

If you travel for your job, you know it’s the worst feeling to get sick when you’re away from the comforts of home. Since you can’t take your home with you, it’s probably a better idea to do whatever you can to not get sick while you’re on the road. Here are three ways to stay healthy while you travel…

Keep your hands clean: Washing your hands is always a good idea when you’re traveling (and anytime you’ve been out in public). But when you’re on the go you don’t always somewhere to wash your hands. Keep some travel-size hand sanitizer around and use it often. Another solution is to try not to touch anything unless you absolutely have to.

Be aware of what you eat: When you’re on the road it can be very tempting to sample local restaurants that are nearby. Chances are that won’t be a problem, but even a small chance of getting sick is a big deal when you’re traveling. Use Yelp and investigate any restaurant you want to eat at before you place your order.

Drink water: You’re probably more active when you’re traveling than you are when you’re at home, so make sure you keep your body hydrated throughout each day. Another good thing to drink is orange juice. You can’t have too much Vitamin C when you’re being frequently exposed to germs.
