Our Current Healthy Obsessions: Travel Essentials
Summer is in full swing and so are summer travels. While fun, between germs, lack of sleep, and various time zones, traveling can also be stressful on the body. Therefore, taking those extra steps to stay on top of your wellness game while away from home is super important. After all, no one wants to get sick on vacation. These are the essentials we always make sure to take with us wherever we are going so we can enjoy our time away.
When it comes to traveling I’m the ultimate overpacker. While I am trying to be better, the one thing I’ll never leave home without is Natural Vitality’s Calm. This magnesium supplement keeps me calm when I’m out of my comfort zone, helps me fall asleep no matter what the situation is, and helps with any digestive issues that develop while traveling.
I love this reusable, collapsible water bottle for my busy summer! It’s BPA free and keeps me hydrated whether I’m on a road trip or flying somewhere a little further away. It’s great for vacations, hikes, picnics, or anything else that requires me to be on the move!
One thing I definitely need when traveling is sunscreen, and this is the best option out there! This sunscreen comes in a travel size of 3 oz. (and larger), and was awarded the National Eczema Association Seal of Acceptance™ as a suitable sunscreen for anyone with sensitive skin conditions. It won’t clog pores being oil free, is resistant to sweat and water, and is hypoallergenic.

FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE CONSULTATIONS FOR PEOPLE AROUND THE WORLD
Dry air can increase your likelihood for getting sick, and since traveling already increases your germ exposure, it’s important take as many precautions as possible. This personal mini humidifier is great because I can just grab a water bottle and use it for the water source and its small enough to fit inside my carry-on.
I love traveling! But when I do, I have to have a go-to snack. Kind Bars are absolutely delicious and come in so many flavors! They are surprisingly filling and my whole family loves them! I love that they take up little space which is huge when traveling. The more space when packing the better! And it’s great knowing I always have a healthy option since your choices when traveling can be unpredictable.
As a mom, traveling in airports with your kids can get a little crazy! As much as I prefer my natural hand wash at home, sometimes hand sanitizer has to do because life happens, right? Dr. Bronner’s products are my go-to since they are filled with natural ingredients that are not rough on your skin.
