Hydrate on the Fly

Our Tips for Keeping your Body Hydrated During Travel


As relaxing and enjoyable as traveling can be, getting there can sometimes be a hassle. Between dealing with crowds, delays, and other stressful factors, the last thing you need to be worried about is your health.


Dehydration is one of the leading causes of health complications travelers encounter on vacation. The pressure, temperature, and oxygen levels in a plane cabin fluctuate, and the humidity level is lower than it is at sea level, according to Cleveland Clinic's Matthew Goldman, MD. Besides the dehydration you will inevitably face while getting to your destination, factors such as weather, activity and exercise, and alcohol consumption can very quickly lead to dehydration even once you’re back on the ground. Dehydration can then cause numerous other health and safety concerns, which is the last thing you need while on vacation.


Here are some of our tricks for staying hydrated on your next trip.


Miracle Mojito


If you’re staying in a villa or hotel with a kitchen, making this drink, especially after a day full of traveling or enjoying cocktails, will totally revitalize you. Although consuming alcohol dehydrates you, we understand that you're in vacation mode. So enjoy alone, add a splash of rum, or even tequila. The other healthy and hydrating ingredients will lessen the effects of your hangover!



Ingredients:


½ an English cucumber

½ a lemon or lime

Frozen ginger cubes (any kind of ginger will work)

Pineapple juice

Water or sparkling water

Mint leaves

Ice

Alcohol of choice


Instructions:


Using a blender or food processor, combine all dry ingredients with a half cup of pineapple juice and a half cup of water. Strain over ice (hot tip! use coffee filter if you can’t find a strainer). Add mint and enjoy!


Chlorophyl


A great tip for jet lag is adding a few drops of chlorophyl to your water just prior to landing. This tip will help you if you wish to stay awake longer throughout the day. Chlorophyl is a dietary supplement that assists the body when adjusting to a new time zone. It also helps to restore energy levels and improve sleep quality.
