We all know how important it is to take care of your body and stay healthy. However, it can be difficult on the road when there is no routine, small spaces, and limited resources! See 3 ways on how to take care of yourself even on the go.
Healthy meals on the road are all about planning. Yes, we know you hate that word, but it’s true! Planning out your exact meals and prepping them beforehand will make eating healthy easy and enjoyable on the road! Don’t go overboard – be realistic with the meals you want to make. Stick with simple recipes that have minimal ingredients made of whole foods and nutritious ingredients. Need some meal ideas, click here.
We know you hear this time and time again, but staying hydrated on the road is essential! Water is key to having the energy to explore those hidden gems on the road. We recommend bringing a large reusable thermal water bottle, a water reservoir backpack, and two 5-gallon water jugs per week (double for each person added to your trip). Don’t forget to bring that water filter you forgot you had just in case of an emergency. Once your water is covered, bringing a couple sources of electrolytes is a great idea. We recommend Skratch Labs Hydration Mix that will replenish your electrolytes fast without all the additives and preservatives. Check out our one-time buy Hydration Kit here!
Whether your road trip is 5 days or 6-months, we recommend getting into a routine as best as you can! Going to bed and waking up at the same time each day, setting time aside for self-hygiene and personal care, and staying active helps your body to feel good and you to enjoy those scenic roads just a little more. Plus, on the road workouts are always 10 times better since you can hike, run, walk or climb in new places with new sights! Don’t forget to practice a couple minutes of yoga and stretching each day to prevent muscle aches and tightness from being in the car.
Lastly, the most important thing is to be flexible and have fun! Don’t let yourself get obsessed with the do’s and don’t of health. Instead, treat your body kindly and enjoy the world around you!
