When Life Gets You Down….

This is, primarily, a travel blog, but I like to write about general life happiness and wellness also because the fact of the matter is that most of us can’t live our lives in a bubble where we float from one fabulous location to the next. We can’t all satiate our wanderlust at all moments, and there are days, weeks, or even months at a time where life can feel like a mundane, dreary routine of monotony.

How to Avoid Stomach Troubles While Traveling

We’ve all been there….we travel to some beautiful destination…we’re having a fabulous time, and then BAM! Stomach issues.

It’s happened to me, for sure! That’s why I wanted to take a little time today to talk about some strategies you can use while traveling to make sure your travels aren’t derailed by digestive issues. This isn’t to say I guarantee 100% you won’t have issues, but I do promise that if you follow these tips, you’ll greatly reduce your chances.

How to Get Through Being Exhausted While Traveling

This advice could work for anybody who hasn’t slept for any reason, but since travel often involves being awake for long hours, enduring sleepless nights, and staying up way (way) past our bedtimes as we cross time zones and hemispheres, I’d say there’s a fair amount of exhaustion we travelers have to deal with. Here are my tips for getting yourself back on track after losing out on rest.

Traveling to the United States? What to do if you get sick while you’re here…

In addition to writing this travel blog, I also read a lot of other people’s blogs and there is one thing I’ve noticed from the blog posts of some of the international blogs I follow…information on medical issues while traveling in the United States. To be fair, anybody traveling anywhere wants to know the medical situation in their destination country, and it can be tricky and varied. Certain countries allow in some medications, while the same medications are strictly prohibited in other countries. In some countries, medical care is easy to access and affordable, and in others it’s prohibitively expensive. It’s really hard to know what you’re facing without doing your research first, but since I know I do have some international readers on here and I do sincerely hope you all come visit my country should you get the chance, I thought I would write up a few tips and some general information for you to help you prepare for your trip here.

Workouts you can do in your hotel room.

If you’re like me and you like to stay healthy and fit, you’ll know the struggle of coming back from a trip with a few extra pounds on. All that delicious food and interruption of a regular fitness routine can take a toll on the body, but it doesn’t have to. Fitness is something you can squeeze into any trip if you plan your time wisely. I previously wrote a post on staying healthy and fit while on the road, but today I want to delve into some specific workouts you can do inside your hotel room because, quite frankly, sometimes that’s your only option.

Great Workouts to do on the Road

I previously wrote a post about Staying Fit While on the Road with some tips and ideas for staying healthy and getting exercise while still enjoying your vacation. I wanted to expand on the topic, however, because if we’re all being honest with ourselves, we all know that travel can seriously interrupt your fitness routine even when you have the best of intentions. Sometimes it’s not always an option to pack a bunch of extra workout clothes or fit in enough time to go out on some awesome fitness excursion.

It doesn’t need to be too difficult, however. I’ve put together this list of videos, routines, and apps for you that will help you fit exercise into your busy travel schedule wherever you happen to be.
