I wanted to share some of my favorite tips for maintaining healthy habits while traveling!
First of all, you can find healthy snacks in airports, but they are always overpriced, and often don’t taste as fresh as I would like. I love to pack a bag of mixed nuts and dried fruits to get me through a flight. I usually toss an apple or orange in my carry-on as well. 🙂
Second, drink lots of water! I know that it can be tempting to have a cocktail on the flight, but the air is already so dry on the airplane. Drink water! I always travel with a large water bottle as well.
Third, airplane seat pockets, arm rests, and tray tables are super dirty! I always travel with antibacterial wipes and wipe down my space when I sit down. I may look a little kooky, but that’s better than getting sick! 🙂
Next, throw a theraband in your bag for hotel workouts! A theraband takes very little space in your bag and can be used for lots or arm, booty, and hip exercises. You can also watch TORCH videos on our YouTube page for quick Pilates/HIIT workouts that don’t require any equipment! Perfect for the hotel room!
Bring an eye mask (or large pashmina scarf) and ear plugs so that you can sleep on your flight. I have forgotten my scarf before and super regretted it!
If you are on a long flight, make sure that you stand up and walk around regularly. I will also stretch during the flight. This helps with circulation and prevents blood clots from forming in your legs.
Until next time!
