Whether you go on a week-long trip or embark on a backpacking journey for months, there’s always the possibility of suffering from travel burnout. As discussed in a previous post on 6 Ways to Cope with Travel Burnout, it’s important to take it easy and find support as burning out isn’t necessarily a sign of being a bad traveler.
Remember that travel burnout will also wear you out mentally and physically, so keeping yourself in tip-top shape can further help with alleviating stress and exhaustion. If you’d like to enjoy your travels for longer, here are some tips on keeping yourself healthy while traveling with the help of technology.
Marpac Rohm Portable White Noise Machine
When you finally reach your destination, you’ll want to be in the perfect condition to maximize every second of your trip. But doing this can be hard if you’re sleep-deprived. Fortunately, Marpac Rohm has a travel-sized white noise machine to help transform your environment into one conducive to rest. It’s only 3.5 inches in diameter, so it won’t take up a lot of space in your luggage or accommodation. With settings for white noise, deep white noise, or gentle surf, you can find peace even in the midst of a bustling environment. The machine’s sound quality and volume range can also help you relax and fall asleep faster when you’re trying to adjust your body to a different time zone.
Maintaining a healthy and well-balanced diet is as essential when traveling as it is when you’re back at home. Otherwise, you’ll feel sluggish and bloated from overeating or indulging in unhealthy snacks. WeightWatchers offers personalized weight loss programs that are easily accessible on its official app, allowing you to make healthy choices even when you’re on the go. Aside from listing the specific nutritional info of food items, it can guide you towards choosing the right portion sizes so you don’t have to completely opt out of trying all the local dishes at your travel destination. You can further stay on track with your diet by researching restaurants in advance and making sure that your itinerary includes healthy and well-spaced meals.
Apple Watch Series 8
Going on a trip doesn’t mean you have to completely ditch your healthy habits and day-to-day routine. The Apple Watch Series 8 is perfect for travel with its smart features that track your heart rate, sleep, mobility, and activity. It has metrics for your choice of exercise from core training to yoga, so you don’t have to worry about getting active despite being thousands of miles away from your local gym. If you ever encounter any health or medication issues, the watch automatically syncs the information to your phone—making it easy to contact a doctor or a family member with just one tap. This latest smartwatch also has a temperature sensor, which female travelers in particular would find helpful for detecting cycle changes or irregularities while they’re on the road.
LocknLock Travel Sanitizer
Keeping your teeth healthy while traveling might sound simple, but there’s more to oral hygiene than just carrying a travel-sized toothbrush. The LocknLock Travel Sanitizer helps with oral care by reflecting UV light on every surface of your toothbrush, making it safe and germ-free. This method appears to be much more convenient than rinsing with hot water before and after every use, as you can’t guarantee that you’ll have access to hot water wherever you go. Finally, the device is rechargeable via a USB port, removing any worry of the battery running out right when you need it.
From exercise and nutrition to sleep and hygiene, these tech tools are designed to make self-care and a healthy lifestyle a top priority even when you’re traveling. For more travel guides and tips, feel free to check out the rest of the blog.
