Five Wellness Must Haves for Traveling

Christmas is coming, Christmas is coming! Us? We’re going..back home that is=) Are you traveling for this Christmas season? What does travel look like for you?

Nick and I fly a good amount, and take road trips when applicable. And, if you know me, you know I plan for the wellness of it all.

We’re going back to Wisconsin for Christmas, and I can hardly wait. I love the change of the seasons and we haven’t been home for Christmas since we’ve been living in Florida.

We will be flying, so the requisite suitcase will come along, filled with sweaters, jeans, leggings, and all the fuzzy socks. And what’s more? Wellness items, of course.

Here’s my five must haves. Like the products? The pictures are links to Amazon so you can get your hands on these great items, too!

Five Wellness Must Haves for Traveling

Oils

You can purchase blends from my store!

I know, you’re shocked. But seriously, I always have oils with me. Right now, I’m working from a local library and I have oils in my purse. Over the weekend, I went to a wine tasting and yup, you guessed it, oils in my purse. Take them with you! No Sick is awesome for keeping well and I use Frankincense right around my ears to prevent plane popping. I love oils.

Snacks

Not only are airport snacks way more expensive than they should be, there aren’t that many great selections. Yes, I see more and more healthy options coming out all the time. But if you want to ensure to have great snacks you love and know are good for you, bring them yourself!

Water bottle


Keeping hydrated is about the best thing you can do for yourself on any given day. Plain water is best (and so refreshing!) so keeping a BPA-Free water bottle with you at all times is a must.

Blanket


Trust me when I say, oils aren’t the only thing that go everywhere with me. And I feel a bit like a child sometimes, but I love my blankie. Aww. How cute. The thing is, my dad got it for me at some point in college and I cannot let it go!

I’m talking, sleep with it every night, goes on every trip and even comes to any movie theater showing with us, that’s how much I love it. And in the airport and on planes, it’s awesome.

Probiotics


So this is the thing, whether you’re eating differently than at home or if you’re out and about with other people,Β  you need to take care of your gut. And probiotics do that. Do you eat (low-sugar) yogurt on the regular? What about fermented foods like pickles or Kombucha?

If not, consider a probiotic supplement. You’re tummy will thank you for it and the “happier” (read: HEALTHIER) you keep your tummy, the better you will feel.

 

Check out my wellness tips book for more great info on how to stay well, whether you’re busy at home, or from the road.

And we’re off! We leave today for 10 days in our home state. Yay! If you’re leaving for the holidays, safe travels to you, and wellness, too!

Disclaimer: I use Young Living Essential Oils and based on my research, I believe these are the best, safest, and most pure oils on the market. PLEASE do your own research and determine which oils are best for you and your family.
