Travel Guide: How to Stay Healthy at 35,000 ft.

Whether for business or pleasure, travel can be pretty brutal at times. It’s easy to get out of your routine and sacrifice your normal health-conscious routine. From bad food to no working out, here are our tips when it comes to taking care of yourself on the go. From Bali to Australia and back again, we’ve tried it all and learned a thing or two about what can make you feel a little bit more like yourself while traveling.


Don’t Get Sick

Before the flight: There is nothing worse then getting sick from traveling before you even reach your destination! What a buzz-kill. The best defense is to build up your immune system beforehand. Two weeks prior to travel, pay extra attention to your food and water intake. Lots of greens and whole foods work wonders, giving you a boost of antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to build up your immune system. Including Vitamin D drops can also be big help (we like Pure Encapsulations). During the flight: Keep your immunity up with Vitamin C Powder Packs ( depending on the flight length, have more than one!) Don’t forget to wipe down! Sanitize with EO Essential Oils Lavender Hand Sanitizer. Most importantly, stay hydrated. Its great for your skin and great for preventing sickness.


Think About Food

Before the flight: Let’s not pretend like airplane food is healthy. Plan ahead and bring what you can. Fruit is light and easy to pack or opt for high protein options like Lara Bars or Rx bars. For meals try packing a salad, with your dressing in a small container on the side to avoid sogginess. During the flight: One of our favorite ways to travel is to treat it as a time to fast. As firm believers in intermittent fasting, flying can be a time to give your body a break and prevent burdening it with food. Depending on how long your flight is, this is could be the easiest and healthiest choice for your next flight. Treat yourself to a good meal when you reach your destination.

Summer Fridays MaskIn-Flight Beauty

During the flight: A good moisturizing mask or cream is a must. In order to step off the plane glowing try Glossier Moisturizing Moon Mask or Summer Friday’s Jet Lag Mask. Both are ideal during a flight since no rinsing required. Post flight: You might be different, but we need the most skincare help post-flight. Nothingfeels better than a long soak, body scrub or dry brushing session. Our favorite is Goop’s G.TOX Travel Kit, it detoxifies your skin and polishes it up so your refreshed and ready to go.

Hope these suggestions help you on your next flight. Safe travels!

Why You Should be Skipping Meals

Intermittent fasting has become quite popular, especially among those who have started diets such as the ketogenic diet or who are looking for ways to support their health or even lose some weight. If you are interested in learning more about intermittent fasting, keep reading! I am going to break it down and explain what it is and exactly what it can do for your health.

What is Intermittent Fasting?

Intermittent fasting involves eliminating food intake for a period of time. Some people choose to do intermittent fasting by skipping breakfast and eating their first meal of the day at 12pm. There is the 16-8 method which means that you eat all of your meals within the 8-hour eating window and then you fast for 16 hours. This works well for people who choose to skip breakfast and wait until lunch time to eat, or who want to eat a later breakfast and then an earlier dinner. This is one of the most popular intermittent fasting options as you still get to eat every day, and there is some flexibility in the times that you eat.

What Can Intermittent Fasting do For Our Health?

Fasting as a whole has been around for a very long time and intermittent fasting has shown to have quite a few health benefits.

#1 Cellular Repair: When you fast, your body has the ability to repair itself and even remove waste from cells which can be extremely beneficial for cellular repair.

#2 Blood Sugar Insulin levels during fasting drop which may be able to help support fat burning and be helpful for those who are looking to lose weight.

#3 Reduce Inflammation: Studies have shown that intermittent fasting can help combat inflammation which can greatly reduce our risk of chronic disease.

#4 Brain Health: Intermittent fasting may also be beneficial for brain health and may help increase brain-derived neurotrophic factor. Having enough BDNF is important for brain health, and not having enough has been linked to depression.

Intermittent fasting is something that has been proven to help support overall health and something that is becoming widely recognized. If you are interested in seeing how this could support your health, give it a go by starting with the 16-8 method and see how it makes you feel!
