Traveling and Energy:
Why You Need A Boost
It's not just your imagination – traveling can zap your energy, dry out the skin and make body parts feel different or weird. Why? First, the airplane cabin's pressure, temperature, and oxygen levels fluctuate, and the humidity level is lower than at sea level. When you travel, you’re also often shifting climates and time zones. Finally, intense travel schedules and being away from your home cause stress. All of these contribute to making you feel tired and worn out.
No matter how many breaks you take, fatigue happens. Use TravelSana® natural energy-boosting self-care kit to combat tiredness and regain control of your trip.
4 Tips To Boost Your Energy
1. Take A Walk
- Prolonged sitting is the main factor of mental fatigue or fatigue strokes.
- Walking outside can help relieve stress and regain energy, concentration, and motivation. Natural sunlight is an excellent source of vitamin D, which benefits your mood and wellness.
2. Favor Slow-Acting Sugars
- Low-glycemic foods such as beans, bran, barley, nuts, and yogurt impact your blood sugar levels less than foods such as white rice, potatoes, cornflakes, baked goods, juices, and sweetened beverages. Eating foods with a low glycemic load stabilizes your blood sugar levels and helps prevent dizziness and discomfort following blood sugar spikes. Foods high in carbohydrates or sugars produce insulin resistance, which causes increases followed by sharp drops in energy levels.
3. Stay Well-Hydrated
- Moderate dehydration makes it more difficult for the body to perform normal tasks. In particular, the brain is susceptible to lack of water, which leads to drowsiness, dizziness, and intense fatigue.
- Keeping a bottle of water handy and drinking throughout the day is a good way to stay properly hydrated. Above all, don't wait until you feel thirsty, as the trigger signal is not always reliable and easy to identify.
- Caution: dehydration is more common in the summer when temperatures are high.
4. Enhance Your Diet With Vitamins, Minerals, And Supplements
- Overworking can cause lack of energy and fatigue, sleep deprivation, or intense stress. The brain entirely manages these signs of stress. Besides dietary glucose intake, several nutrients and vitamins can improve energy and fight fatigue.
- Whether by improving concentration, reducing stress, or regulating sleep cycles, food supplements may be an excellent support to fight fatigue and regain energy.
