A passion of mine is traveling! I love to see many different cultures and landscapes, and it is often while traveling that I feel most vital and most free. As I have gotten older, however, I have started to develop food sensitivities, and traveling for longer periods of time often wreaks havoc with my digestion and immune system. More research is showing that the gut and mental health are inextricably linked, so in order to stay healthy in our minds we need to stay healthy in our bodies to ensure we can make the most of getaways.
Here are tried and tested ways I have learned to help reduce my chances of illness, fatigue, and sluggishness and avoid unnecessary weight gain while traveling. They're especially helpful during indulgent times like the holidays.
