Traveling Healthy

Melissa loves to travel and she has learned how to maintain her health while doing so. When traveling, it’s important to be mindful of your health, while also enjoying the experience.

Choosing the Resort

Melissa recommends researching resorts beforehand to make sure they have what you’re looking for as far as health and fitness. Look at the kind of food they offer, what kind of activities are available nearby, and if they have a gym on the premises.

While on the Flight

Studies show that if you fast while you’re on your flight, your chances of jet lag are severely diminished. Melissa talks about optimal times to eat and how to manipulate your sleep to reset your circadian rhythms.

Packing Snacks

Melissa always packs healthy snacks in her carry on and her checked luggage. It is so helpful! Melissa discusses whether or not to choose an all-inclusive resort in terms of money and health.

Not All Alcohol is Created Equal

It’s easy to overindulge while on vacation. While Melissa encourages people to enjoy drinks and cultural beverage specialities while traveling, she cautions to be mindful of hidden calories and sugars. Some drinks are better than others when it comes to health.

The Travel Mindset

Melissa reminds listeners to be in the mindset of being better, but not striving to be perfect. Traveling is a unique opportunity to try new things, but you don’t have to go overboard with indulgence, there has to be some sort of boundaries to stay consistent with your lifestyle.
