Everyone Should Have Daily Health Choices, But how about when you travel? In this Post we share our Travel Health Choices!
Most of us have daily routines, whether intentional or simply drifting along in a kind of specific way. I mean we all get up, go toilet, brush our teeth…(Well some of us) etc. But how about your Travel Health Choices? Do you have a routine for when you travel?
Lets Talk about Your Travel Health Choices!
See, when you travel you are out of your “Comfort Zone” that place we call home. We assume you made it secure? Ohh you aint sure? Go check out our episode on the smart things to do before you leave home.
Right so this post is not about what you are thinking. Its a pretty short but sweet guide to what you can do to boost your health and well-being even when you travel.
Lets dive in…
Travel health Choices – Favorite Meal – Breakfast
We love a full English…dont judge 😉 And it can be as nutritious as you can make it. Very filling and can take you for hours before your tummy demands a refill. So what do we choose as a healthy choice:
Eggs royale – poached egg, with smoked salmon in flat bread, (usually in a muffin), with mayo.
Free-range Chicken Sausage – an acquired taste but ohh so yummy and healthier than Beef. Or maybe horse meat…who knows what they may put in sausage.
Mushrooms – steamed with a spray of virgin olive oil, Grilled Tomato, A hash brown…well cant be anything but…
That cup of organic fruits infused tea and bowl of steel cut oats and we are good to hit those tourist trails. 😉
Definitely add a bowl of fresh fruit, a glass of Fresh juice and a tab of organic yogurt.
With food its good to know its origin, maybe provenance, what its made from and how it was prepared. The less fried or microwaved the better. More raw, steam, grill, or simply boiled is fab.

Travel health Choices – Our Go-To Remedy
Activated Charcoal tablets. Trust me you want Charcoal tablets – yes very well documented in various posts on here.
Every kitchen and travel hand luggage must have this. Thing is, every time you go somewhere new, you introduce new cuisine to your system. Your poor tummy doesn’t know what has hit it sometimes, so it goes on strike…
You could take exclusive ownership of the bog house for hours if you dont have charcoal tablets on hand. You can Purchase Charcoal tablets Here.
Pro Tip: Our GP gave us this tip 10 years ago. Pop 1-2 charcoal tablets and chew on them at least 30 mins before your meal. Then you can chomp away at anything without getting holiday tummy. (Disclaimer – unless its a serious bacteria or virus in the food. Otherwise you can survive any exotic cuisine.)

Travel health Choices – Keep Fit and Sexy
Keeping fit should be one of your travel must dos. Unless you are going to spend hours walking the tourist trail thus getting your sweat on.
You must spend at least 30 mins a day exercising. Remember you are stuffing your face with all the hotel goodies…ya gotta burn it off. Unless you intend to partake of our 5 Days Post Travel Detox.
Healthy exercise can be gym work or swimming if the accommodation has a gym/pool. This underpins your regular activity like HIITS, Running, Jogging, Biking, Aerobic dancing etc.
How about you walk on the beach for 30 mins! Sand adds a level of resistance as you walk, meaning you do more. And it acts as an exfoliant for your hard heel skin…You will need to scrub it to smoother, (hello baby soft heels.)
We did this daily in Punta Cana, the views were breathtaking and we got to eat whatever we wanted. It was such a dream, we got our tan on too and we didn’t come home with extra kilos on the bod 😉
Pro Tips: Walking has been known to be great for mental health, different views, meeting other people. Good for the soul.
According to recent American research, being Active 5 times a week for at least 30 minutes at a time significantly improves your heart functionality. Esp. if you are middle aged…(University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center Research)
So, just doing 2-3 times a week wont protect your heart from ageing…Take it up a notch. meaning Vacations or travel should not stand in the way of your healthy heart!
Travel health Choices – Make more Perfect Healthy days
What do we mean by this, after all one is meant to over indulge while on Holiday innit?
No way Jose…
A vacation is simply you getting away from it all and refilling your pot of life…Yet it can be a way of over indulgence…Once presented with so much new good stuff esp. on an all inclusive holiday. Only the strong can resist and keep to a strict diet! Be strong, I know it may be your Perfect dream Holiday! Talking of which…
We once talked about a “Perfect Health Day on Holiday”. Our Son came up with this…hilarious
I wake up in our fab hotel suite facing an infinity pool, Grab my guitar and play a few notes. Have breakfast by the beach after a competitive jog along said beach and snorkel with my sister…I win the race and snorkel mini competition of course… 😉
Have some freshly squeezed juice with lunch that was cooked right before my eyes. Go for a donkey ride…throw in some Beach Zumba. Go shopping in the Snarzy end and spend some dollar on bling and such…
Watch a show on the beach in the evening with mom and dad who are sipping on some kind of exotic cocktail…As we watch the dolphins swim…
From the above description clearly his perfect Holiday day requires about 49 hours long! Yet its is pretty healthy… (Well done mom and dad Pkjulesworld.)
