It’s no secret that traveling drains you. Especially when you are going long distances.
Why the Lag?
According to the MayoClinic “jet lag” is caused by numerous factors including:
- Cabin atmosphere
- Sunlight or lack thereof
- Circadian Rhythm
Staying Ahead of the Game
When you make a purchase using the retail links provided on my site, I may earn a small commission at no additional cost to you. That said, all opinions expressed on this site are my own, and I would never recommend products I do not enjoy myself.
Believe it or not, dehydration is all too common on long-distance travel. Here are some quick tips to stay ahead of the game:
Stay Hydrated: Bring your own reusable water bottle. I always travel with my 32oz Hydro Flask. They are great to have. Most airports have refillable stations but at the least, the coffee shops or restaurants have always filled mine for me.
Stretch: or perform a light exercise before a long flight. This is becoming increasingly popular. Some airports, including the Denver International airport, are host to mini yoga studios for personal use.
I usually use a simple blanket for my stretches, but I have my eyes on this travel size yoga mat.
Moisturize (specifically facial): Have you noticed a difference in your skin after landing from a long flight? Consider applying a deep moisturizing treatment before your flight to assist in skins hydration. These are my favorite moisturizing products.
Victimize to Optimize: If you know you will be missing some of your vitamins that are normally consumed through food, it may be a wise choice to pack essential vitamins.
