7 Must-Pack Items to Keep You Healthy While Traveling

When you’re traveling, keeping healthy is a challenge. Airport surfaces are known to be covered in germs. Convenient meals are easier to find than healthy ones. And away from our local gym, fitness routines can be difficult to maintain.

Stay Healthy & Fit

Below are some of my top picks for staying healthy and fit while on a trip. Make sure to share some of your tips or tricks in the comments.

Nomader Collapsible Water Bottle

Make sure you stay hydrated while traveling. A great tool to have is a water bottle that you can fill up at the airport or at different fill up stations on your travels. I like collapsible bottles the best because they are easy to fold up and stow away in a bag when not being used.

Amazon User Review: “Anxious to use this on my next travels. Hate having to buy water at the airport.”

Price: Starting at $24 on Amazon

Trtl Pillow

Avoid a cramped neck by investing in a good travel pillow. The Trtl Pillow is scientifically proven to keep your head in a better position when sleeping upright by holding your head in an ergonomic position while sleeping. It’s also folds small, making it easy to pack.

Amazon User Review: “Gave to a friend who said it literally saved her neck on a 17-hour flight to India.”

Price: Starting at $30 on Amazon

No Jet Lag

Travel a lot across multiple time zones? Try No Jet Lag to help with sleepiness, fatigue, and irritability from traveling long-distances. Each box contains enough tablets for up to 50 hours of flying.

JZK Mini Portable Personal Cool Mist Air Humidifier

Sometimes when I travel, especially in places with dry air, my nose and throat get really irritated. A great way to prevent this is to use a personal humidifier. This one from JZK is rated pretty high, coming in at four stars. The humidifier can also be used as a diffuser and can be charged by USB.

Utopia Fitness Resistance Band

Keep up with your fitness routine in your hotel room with a set of fitness bands. These bands may seem small but provide a full workout. They also fit easily in your luggage. The set comes with five different weight resistances.

Culturelle Daily Probiotic

When traveling, of course you're going to be sampling food that you wouldn’t normally eat at home. Sometimes all of that new food can really mess with our digestive systems. If this happens to you, try to invest in a good probiotic. This probiotic by Culturelle is a good place to start, though check with your doctor for additional recommendations.

Amazon User Review: “This is the first probiotic I've ever taken. The capsules are easy to swallow no odd taste. I can tell they have boosted my immune system and have fewer stomach aches and problems than I use to.”

Price: Starting at $31 on Amazon

PURELL

Travel exposes you to so many awful germs. Make sure to have hand sanitizer in reach to keep your hands germ-free. This pack of mini hand sanitizers from Purell clip onto your bag so you always have them handy.

Amazon User Review: “Nice to be able to attach to a back pack.
