A long long time ago I worked as a traveling management consultant. I traveled every week for four days a week. Then I decided to slow down, get married and find a job in town. I’ve been in this place for the past 5 years with minimal travel. That is until last year and this year is starting off no better. In the first 2 and a half months of the year I’ve been in Florida, Washington, Idaho, Florida again, New Jersey, Colorado, Arizona, then Colorado again. The next three months don’t look much better. I’m not complaining but I am nervous that I might be compromising my immune system. Thank goodness for Airborne Everyday(Check it out here). They have made it so easy. With this these two yummy gummies, I get the benefit of an immune support supplement and a multi-vitamin.
All this talk of staying healthy had me thinking of all the ways over the years I’ve been pretty successful at supporting my immune system. I’m going to share some of my tips then I’m going to give you a chance to get your hands on your own Airborne Everyday.
Take Your Vitamins
A vitamin like Airborne Everyday is a great way to get the most of your vitamins, right now, I desperately need the immune support!
Drink Lots of Water
I know this sounds like a given but it’s hard enough trying to remember to drink enough but when you add in running from gate to gate or sitting in a meeting in an office you’re not familiar with it gets even more difficult. Not to mention the need for more water is greater when you’re out and about like this. I ALWAYS take an empty clean reusable bottle with me. Once I get through security I find a restaurant and fill it up. No one has ever told me no.
Another one where you could say “Easier said than done” but it’s so critical. Pack some snacks. In my work bag at any given time, you’ll find a granola bar, an apple (washed and in a ziploc bag), some carrots and possibly some hummus if I’m really organized. Then don’t be afraid, when you’re dining out, to ask for sauces and condiments on the side. This will help keep your sodium levels and calories in check.
This is the HARDEST for me. I have a hard time sleeping on the road. I use to have no problem but anymore if it’s not home, it’s not quality sleep. One thing that has really helped me lately is packing my own pillow cases. I know it sounds weird but I know they are clean and the familiar smell of home helps me drift off to sleep (then I use the pillow case to store all my dirty clothes).
Exercise or Decompress
Business travel is nothing short of stressful so it’s important to find time to yourself. Knowing I’m going home to a crazy house, I always try to take advantage of time on the road to restore. If I’m somewhere warm, that’s an outdoor run. If it’s not, the hotel gym or some body weight exercises help.
Pack Your Own Cleaning Supplies
At any given time, in my suitcase, you will find Lysol wipes. The first thing I do when I get into any hotel room is wrap the remote in a wipe and let it sit to really make sure it gets disinfected. Then I wipe down all the surfaces I can think of as well. I feel a little better knowing I’ve seen those surfaces clean and always walk around in socks or sandals.
Now it’s time to get you on your way to healthy travel and immune support.
I will pick three winners that will each get their own bottles of Airborne Everyday. Here’s how to win:
