paulaThere are a lot of people that travel at the holidays.  There are tips that can help you stay hydrated and energized during the process.

-Drink water consistently.  Flying can drain your body of moisture and leave your skin and hair dry, and you feeling run down.  Drink 8 ounces when you get up, since you cannot carry water through security. 

-Keep your alcohol intake to a limit.  Drinking before you fly, robs your system of its hydration and often leaves you with a headache.

-Try to keep yourself organized (packing, making arrangements for your pets and mail…) so that you can get to bed on time the night before you fly.  Being run down does not make you an easier traveler for anyone around you.

-Take snacks in your carry on.  An apple, no-salt roasted almonds or walnuts, a granola bar, even a bag of high fiber breakfast cereal can keep you from stopping for Cinnabun or fries on the way to the gate.

-Pack your workout tubes or bands, and your Walkman so that you can exercise away from home.  It will energize you for the day-long activities that are planned.  Make your mental and physical survival a priority by scheduling this time for you.  Ask your sibling or children to go for a walk with you and involve them in your exercise.

-Take gum for the flight.  It helps keep your ear drums opened and keeps you from eating those cheap, salty, high calorie peanuts or pretzels they give you on flights.

-Keep a small container of hand sanitizer in your carry on.  The germs on a plane are vicious.  ALWAYS wash your hands before you eat anything.

Most importantly, have fun, smile, laugh and enjoy the true meaning of the holidays.  Thanks for your support of this blog and ENJOY!
