Wellness Tips for Holiday Travelers
Are you thinking of traveling this holiday season? If so, you are not alone! Thanksgiving travels this year are expected to be just as busy as pre-pandemic times. So if you’re going out of town or leaving the country, we’ve got some tips to help you be mindful of your wellness.
Don’t Feel Pressured to Travel
If you are not feeling comfortable traveling this year, remember – you don’t have to!Your mental health is just as important as your physical health.
If traveling brings you too much stress, don’t let family or friends pressure you into visiting if you don’t want to – you know yourself best.
Be Mindful of Your Stress Levels
If you do decide to travel, be aware of your stress levels. Ensure you include time to relax during your vacation and give yourself extra time to arrive at your destination safely.
Stress can also lead to being distracted, so don’t let yourself forget your most important possessions when traveling.
Check for these items before leaving on your trip. And check again after using the restroom or before getting off a plane, bus, or train – you don’t want to be caught without them!
- ID and/or passport
- Wallet/Cash/Credit Cards
- Sanitizer / Facemask
Are You Traveling internationally? If you are traveling outside of the country, give yourself peace of mind by checking travel restrictions and COVID-19 Testing facility locations where you are staying ahead of time.
Don’t get caught off guard when entering a different country or re-entering the States!
Staying hydrated is an important element of a healthy immune system.
Unfortunately, It can be easy to forget hydration when traveling.
If you’re driving to your destination, make sure to have some extra bottles of water with you, and if you’re flying, carry an empty water bottle with you and refill often!
Whether you decide to travel or not, we hope you have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
