Maintain a journal
Another great way you can make sure your health is kept in check while travelling is by maintaining a journal. There are different ways you can maintain a journal. Be it on your phone or by keeping a record in an actual book. Whichever suits you best, go for it.
Maintaining a journal will help you know what you have consumed daily and what you need to do to keep yourself healthy. Writing a journal will also, in turn, make sure you are always motivated to maintain good health while you are travelling.
I have a digital journal on my phone, that I use daily to track my eating patterns, my blood glucose, and the type of exercise that I do . It really helps me see what has proven good for my health and what I should really avoid.
Exercising is one of the most important things when it comes to taking care of your health. You need to take care of yourself if you want to stay fit to travel for long and what better way to do it than to do a little bit of exercise everyday.
When you are travelling, you might not want to do a lot of exercises. And that is ok too. But if you need to maintain proper health, then there is nothing more beneficial than exercise.
You don’t have to do too many heavy exercises because that would leave you feeling too tired to explore the place you are visiting. Instead, doing something simple such as a 30-minute run can also contribute a lot to maintaining good health while you are travelling. Exercise is a crucial part of health maintenance. You can’t be fully fit if you don’t make sure you are working for it.
If you are a traveller like myself, who likes to explore the places on foot, then take it as your exercise for the day. Exploring the beauty of the world on foot, is the best of both worlds.

Get proper sleep
Sleep is one of the most important aspects of maintaining good health. You need to get a good amount of sleep if you want to stay healthy and active while you travel. Make sure to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep to make sure you can enjoy your day to the fullest. It is also crucial to understand that you need to sleep at night.
Many people, especially those who are night owls, have a hard time falling asleep than others, but the importance of getting adequate sleep at night is unmatched to taking naps in the day. It is also possible that jetlag might make it harder to sleep at night in the country you are travelling in, but you must try to get some rest.
For travellers who can’t sleep the night before the travel because of excitement, need to plan and set their daily routine at least 3 days in advance, so they can have a good sleep on the night before the travel.
One last tip that you should always keep in mind if you want to maintain good health while travelling is to stay hydrated. Many people don’t understand the importance of drinking adequate and enough water. Not drinking enough fluids causes fatigue, and you get tired of any activity.
When you are travelling, you won’t want to have your fun ruined by not being hydrated. So, make sure to keep a check on how much water you drink every day. If you have trouble remembering to drink enough, use your phone alarms to keep a track and remind yourself of drinking water every few hours.
Your health is crucial. You cannot have a good time if your health deteriorates while you are out and about. If you want to have fun, then you must know how to maintain good health while travelling.
