Summer Travel Tips

Welcome to July!

The weather here in Ohio is quite different than what I had been experiencing over the past week in Arizona and Nevada. I was on vacation and out west and it was HOT!! When people tell you it's okay because it's dry heat, they obviously haven't experienced 'dry heat' in their life. Oy, it felt like having a hair dryer blow on you non-stop outside.

We had an amazing vacation though and I can't complain too much because I love to experience new things and between Vegas, the Hoover Dam, and the Grand Canyon. WOW! If you haven't gotten the chance to get to the Grand Canyon yet, start planning, it's definitely GRAND.

Not to mention, the hubby and I celebrated 3 years of wedded bliss on our trip!

As much as I love being able to travel, my body has definitely felt the lack of sleep and some indulgence (i.e. the dessert and cappuccino you see pictured above!)

For any of you who travel or will be taking that summer vacation, you'll know what I'm talking about with being thrown out of whack.

Side note- Last night, I taught a "Natural Weight Release" workshop with a wonderful group of people. We discussed things like toxic buildup in the body and how to get rid of toxins so you can release weight. I couldn't help but relate some of things we discussed in our class with traveling. That's why I have taken a few tips from our class to share with you to practice during traveling.

Hopefully, these tips help your body adjust after your summer travels.

Tip #1 : HYDRATE. HYDRATE. HYDRATE!
I cannot tell you enough how important it is to hydrate your body with some good old H2O, no matter where your travels take you. Hydrate well before vacation, while you're traveling, and after you return.

Tip #2 : Don't Stop Taking Probiotics (or add them in if you don't take them already).
Probiotics help build up the good bacteria in your gut flora. Not only do they aid in better digestion and absorption of nutrients, building up and maintaining high levels of good bacteria will also give your immune system a boost to fight off any weird bugs you may come into contact with while traveling.

Tip #3 : Move your Body!
It's easy to be lazy when you return from a trip and your body might even need a bit of a rest and that's okay. However, you don't want to be stagnant, especially after traveling. Go for a walk, a hike, or a bike ride. It doesn't have to be strenuous movement as long as you're moving and pumping lymph fluid through your system to keep your organs in tip top shape.

I hope you have an amazing summer and incredible adventures! Please share in the comments below if you have any healthy travel tips our community might benefit from hearing! :)

Warmly,
