With the holidays approaching quickly, consider the suitcases and duffel bags youâ€™ll be packing for your trips to see friends, family, and the sights. Will you fill your suitcase with a few gadgets and accessories to make your travel healthy, or will your vacation be a gut-buster?
Start by following these tips for a healthy vacation, and then make sure you pick these items to pack in your suitcase.
Tennis shoes and workout clothes. Who knows? You might have time to squeeze in a workout or you might not, but without packing the requisite apparel, youâ€™ll end up lounging around instead of getting active.
Portable water alkalizer. We all know that drinking strange water can make you sick. And you donâ€™t want to be sick when youâ€™re on that stellar vacation! Take along a portable water alkalizer to give your body alkaline hydration and safe drinking water wherever your journeys take you.
Pedometer. Many smartphones include GPS pedometers nowadays, but if youâ€™re embarking on a walking-heavy trip (like a journey to Europe that includes walking tours, or a hiking trip), you might want to take along a pedometer to record your efforts.
Vitamins. Donâ€™t forget to pack your vitamins. With all the diet splurging youâ€™ll be doing on your travels, youâ€™ll need them to boost your immune system to keep you in tip-top shape for excursions and sightseeing. Bonus tip: Pack fiber pills, too.
Sunscreen. Sunscreen myth: You donâ€™t need sunscreen if the sun isnâ€™t out or if your whole body isnâ€™t exposed. Reality: You should always wear at least SPF 15 on your face, and if more of your body is exposed, increase the surface area. The sunâ€™s UV rays can harm you even if itâ€™s cloudy, so for a truly healthy vacation, pack the sunscreen!
