With summer approaching fast next month, we can’t help but think of traveling. Whether you’re planning a trip away from Orangeburg, South Carolina or you find yourself with relatives visiting your Indigo Run apartment, it’s important for those who are traveling to stay in good health. Today we’re sharing a few tips for healthy living, courtesy of mindbodygreen.

“At mindbodygreen we take a 360 degree approach to wellness that incorporates mental, physical, spiritual, emotional, and environmental well-being—because we believe these pillars of wellness are vital and interconnected…”

Valerie Grandury, a Los Angeles resident and wellness coach, shared her experience of traveling six months a year without getting sick. Sounds nice, right? Well, that’s not an easy accomplishment for everyone. Sharing her story on mindbodygreen.com, Valerie focused on five points:

  1. Try a pillow prop-up to relax

  2. Steer clear of colds and viruses

  3. Get grounded

  4. Don’t abandon your evening routine

  5. Pack some of your favorite healthy dry goods.

Here are a few quotes straight from the source. You can read them in full detail by clicking on the above link.

  • “[on an airplane], propping up your arms with a couple of pillows helps you relax.”

  • “...never touch airplane food. Instead, I travel with Moon Juice snacks and ask for fresh fruits—most airlines carry apples and bananas. I also rely on MycoShield Immune Support Peppermint throat spray for a good boost to my immune system. The peppermint version also works as a breath freshener.”

  • “To get grounded in a new time zone...take a walk, even if it’s just for five minutes.”

  • “Keeping your evening rituals will help you feel more at home.”

Traveling can be a stressful experience, and added sickness just makes things worse.
