Staying Well While Traveling – “On the Road”


Traveling on the road can be a thrilling adventure, whether it's a road trip, a cross-country journey, or traveling with your caravan or camper. While enjoying the freedom and flexibility of the open road, it's important to prioritize your well-being to make the most of your travels. Here, we will explore some valuable tips and advice on staying well while traveling on the road.


Prepare Your Vehicle:

Before hitting the road, ensure that your vehicle is in good condition for a safe and comfortable journey. Take it for a maintenance check-up to ensure all essential components, such as brakes, tyres, and fluids, are in optimal condition. Carry a spare tyre, jumper cables, or jump starter and necessary tools in case of emergencies. Familiarize yourself with basic car maintenance, such as changing a tire or checking the oil, to handle minor issues on your own.


Plan Your Route and Stops:

Mapping out your route and planning your stops in advance can help you maintain a well-structured and enjoyable journey. Identify rest areas, scenic spots, and attractions along the way to take breaks and stretch your legs. Avoid driving for extended periods without breaks, as it can lead to fatigue and reduced concentration. Allow for flexibility in your schedule to accommodate unexpected delays or interesting detours.


Stay Hydrated and Snack Smart:

Proper hydration and healthy snacking are crucial during long hours on the road. Carrying a supply of water (ideally of zazen water) in a reusable water container is crucial and sip this regularly throughout the journey. Opt for healthy snacks like fresh fruits, nuts, and healthy snacks to keep your energy levels up. Avoid excessive consumption of sugary drinks and junk food, as they can lead to energy crashes and discomfort.


Practice Good Posture and Stretching:

Maintaining good posture and incorporating stretching exercises while on the road can help prevent muscle stiffness and discomfort. Adjust your seat to ensure proper lumbar support and keep your knees at a comfortable angle. Take short breaks every few hours to stretch your legs, neck, and back. Simple exercises like shoulder rolls, neck stretches, and leg extensions can alleviate tension and improve blood circulation.


Prioritize Restful Sleep:

Getting adequate sleep is vital for staying alert and focused while driving. Invest in a comfortable sleeping arrangement if you're traveling in a caravan or camper. If you're sleeping in your vehicle or at rest stops, use earplugs, an eye mask, and a comfortable pillow to optimize your sleep quality. Maintain a consistent sleep schedule and create a relaxing bedtime routine to promote restful sleep.


Maintain Personal Hygiene:

Keeping up with personal hygiene on the road contributes to your overall well-being. If you don’t have the luxury of an ensuite van, carry travel-sized toiletries, including toothbrush, toothpaste, and Renu28, to maintain cleanliness. Use rest-stop facilities or find nearby public restrooms to freshen up regularly. Changing into clean clothes and maintaining oral hygiene will help you feel refreshed during your travels.


Pack a Travel Health Kit: 

Prepare a travel health kit that includes essential items to keep you healthy on the go. Some key items to consider include:

Renu28 – great for most things from Sunburn to scraps, bites, stings, and discomfort.

Spray Bottle with ASEA liquid – great for keeping the eyes fresh whilst driving and keeping you alert and focused. Can also be used to sooth burns, cuts scraps etc.

Basic first aid supplies such as adhesive bandages, antiseptic ointment, and pain relievers.

Prescription medications, if applicable, along with a copy of your prescription.

Over-the-counter remedies for common travel ailments like motion sickness, diarrhea, and allergies.


Practice Good Hygiene: 

Maintaining good hygiene habits while traveling can help prevent the spread of germs and minimize the risk of illness. Remember to:

Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially before meals and after using the restroom. Alternatively, I use Thieves Spray (see below) when there is no soap available.

Avoid touching your face, as it can be a gateway for germs to enter your body.

I carry Young Living Thieves Spray; it is a portable essential oil spray ideal for cleaning surfaces. Just one small spray freshens counters, sinks, door handles, toilets, and more using only naturally derived, plant-based ingredients and the powerful spicy-citrus scent of Thieves essential oil blend. Safe to use around children and the perfect size to throw in a purse, backpack, or luggage, a bottle of Thieves Spray is ideal to keep with you wherever you go! to clean surfaces such as tray tables, armrests, and doorknobs.


Embrace Physical Activity:

Staying active while on the road is essential for your physical and mental well-being. Take advantage of rest stops to go for a short walk or engage in light exercises. Incorporate activities like hiking, biking, or swimming at scenic locations along your route. Stretching exercises can also be done in small spaces, such as picnic areas or campground sites, to promote flexibility and relaxation.


Traveling on the road offers incredible opportunities for adventure and exploration. By prioritizing your well-being and incorporating these tips into your travel routine, you can ensure a healthy and enjoyable journey. Remember to plan ahead, stay hydrated, take regular breaks, prioritize sleep, and embrace physical activity. With a mindful approach to your health, you'll make unforgettable memories while traveling on the road. I never leave my home without at least Renu28 in my handbag, there have been several occasions where others or I have needed it. Safe travels!
