Hi all! Thanks so much to everyone who’s been checking out my blog over the past few months! I’ve been trying super hard to post more articles I thought you guys would love as I traveled around like a crazy person this summer and fall. And since I’ve been traveling so much, I wanted to cover a VIP (Very Important Problem): how to avoid getting sick while traveling.
Most of my travel involves planes and trains, but almost all of it involves me getting up way too early, staying up way too late, and running myself ragged trying to pack ALL OF THE JOY into every trip.
Because I like to travel as affordably as possible, I will usually book the earliest (i.e. cheapest) flights. They tend to leave around 6am, which means I have to get up at 4am in order to get ready and over to the airport. If you’re like me, by the time you arrive at the airport you’re already a haggard mess by the time you get on the plane. Perfect for plane napping!
Since sleep is one of the most important factors in overall health, it’s not ideal to purposely wear yourself down. But luckily, I have a few tips and items that should help us both avoid getting sick while traveling.

And two bonus recommendations to avoid getting sick while traveling: SLEEP and a flu shot! Try to sleep as much as you can before and after the flight. And if you’re able to nap on the plane, go for it!
What are your best tips to avoid getting sick while traveling? I’d love to hear them!
