Top Tips for Travel

Looking to travel soon? Prepare for your trip with expert tips from our Health Nutritionist, Wellbeing and Lifestyle Coach, Yvonne Wake.

  1. Keeping mobile when you are in a plane is crucial. Don't feel embarrassed to stand up, move your legs around, wave your arms around and do this every 30 minutes if you are totally static in your seat. If you are able to be in a flat space, practice yoga poses like happy baby or child's pose. Stretch out!
  2. To help give your body an instant refresh, use Revive Body Gel which features Grapefruit and Rosemary to help energize. Spot apply the gel to the legs to help with fluid retention while flying. This cooling gel can also be applied over tights and stockings for an instant boost of energy.
  3. Staying calm and practicing yogic breathing for a few minutes as you travel can be so helpful and de-stressing. Take ten deep breaths in through the nose and then slowly out through the mouth. Use up all the breath. To aid with your breathing techniques use Support Breathe Essence. The refreshing blend of Eucalyptus, Peppermint and Tea Tree essential oils are the perfect travel companion to ward off any unwanted germs. Apply 2 to 3 drops onto a tissue and inhale deeply.
  4. We all know that airplane food, as well as snacks at any train station or gas station are all made from the least healthy ingredients. Be prepared! Take a boxed salad that includes avocado and a hard-boiled egg for protein and sustenance. Small packets of nuts, raisins and dried fruit are great to stay energized.
  5. Water is the best friend to remember to take with you. Stay hydrated while you travel. Don't rely on cups of coffee as this will dehydrate you even more, although one cup is totally fine!
  6. Only fall asleep if you are being watched over - but dosing off for those power naps will give you renewed energy for the rest of the trip. The Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Balm is a travel essential to help you sleep and relax during travels. 
  7. Airports, train stations and cars are not the best places to be for long periods - be prepared for delays, and they won’t seem half as daunting. Close your eyes and meditate whenever possible for those peaceful moments and renewed energy.
