While traveling, staying healthy is always top of mind. This is particularly true now amidst the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. If you’re traveling for your honeymoon, you may have fears relating to how you can stay healthy on this unforgettable trip. Luckily, there are many ways to stay healthy and avoid the coronavirus while traveling that are both easy and effective.

Wash Your Hands Regularly

Wash your hands as often as you can during travel, particularly after being on a plane or public transit. Put hand sanitizer in your travel bag to have on hand for those moments when traditional hand washing isn’t possible. However, remember that washing your hands the old fashioned way, with soap and warm water, is the best option whenever it’s possible. This is the most effective way to kill germs and stop the spread of illness and COVID-19.

Stay Hydrated

It can be easy to lose track of the need to drink water while you’re traveling and constantly on the go. However, staying well hydrated is a big part of staying healthy. Make it a priority to squeak in eight or more cups of water each day. A good way to get into the habit is to start the day with a big cup of water before you consume anything else. Not only will a well-hydrated body boost your immune system, but it will also make you feel better throughout your honeymoon and less tired and sluggish.

Wipe Down Surfaces

Wiping down highly touched surfaces during your travel is a good way to avoid coming into contact with Coronavirus or other viruses. For instance, the tray table on the plane, the armrests on your plane seat, and the touch screen on a plane TV should all be wiped down with a cleaning wipe before use. Other areas to clean include the surfaces in your hotel room, such as the remote in your hotel room, the doorknobs, and light switches. This extra cleaning will give you the peace of mind you need to know that you’re doing everything you can to stay healthy.

Eat Healthy Meals

Eating healthy meals filled with protein, fruits, and vegetables helps give your body the fuel it needs to stay healthy. However, eating healthy while you’re on vacation is certainly easier said than done! Make it a priority to eat a healthy meal at least once a day, getting in those fruits and veggies that are filled with antioxidants. This gives your body a good chance of fighting off viruses. Eating healthy foods has other perks, too, like giving you the energy you need to have a great and busy day.

Take the Right Supplements

Bring some supplements with you on your honeymoon to help your immune system. Elderberry gummies are effective in boosting immunity and are widely available. Vitamin C is always a good choice when it comes to helping your body stay healthy. Also, anything with echinacea helps boost your immune system, whether it’s a capsule or even tea that contains the ingredient. Take these supplements daily to build your immune system and to have a healthy honeymoon.

Get Some Exercise In

Getting up and moving helps boost your immune system and can ward off the coronavirus. Be sure to incorporate some exercise into your trip, whether that’s a long walk, a quick yoga session, or a run on the beach.

Don’t Skimp on Sleep

Sleep is the time when your body recharges and works to fight off any illnesses. It’s easy to lack in the sleep department when you’re on your honeymoon and enjoying yourself, as you don’t want to miss out on a single moment! However, not getting enough sleep puts your body at risk of illness. Prioritize getting those z’s every night and if you can’t, squeeze in a few naps here and there. After all, it is vacation!

The prospect of getting sick with any rampant illness is scary, and it’d be particularly inconvenient and upsetting to contract it on your honeymoon. Make the most out of this momentous trip by taking these measures to stay happy and healthy.
