I do not have time to get sick.
Who does, really? Even a run-of-the-mill cold can be enough to knock you off course for much longer than you’d like.
Traveling can make it even harder to stay healthy. When you’re out of your home environment, you’re more vulnerable. You may come across bacteria you wouldn’t normally run into. You may not be sleeping as well as you do in your own bed, which can sap your energy and your immune system.
You won’t always get sick while traveling, but it’s better to be prepared.
As frequently as I travel, I’ve found some things that work well for me.
Staying well while traveling isn’t tricky. It just requires smart packing, healthy habits (did you get your annual flu shot?) and self-awareness. You’ll enjoy your next trip so much more without the sniffles!
