With the winter season upon us, it can mean more travel – especially around the holidays. While it is an exciting time full of joy, cozy sweaters, and parties, it is also cold and flu season. But don’t worry! The travel experts at Last Minute Travel have tips to keep you healthy and festive all season long:

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate The most important thing you can do to stay healthy while traveling is by drinking a lot of water! By hydrating your body, you are increasing your blood circulation to better ward off those nasty bugs and viruses.

Eat your Veggies Being out of your normal routine with increased travel; it is hard to remember to eat a balanced diet. Try to eat a serving of vegetables at every meal - even just as a side dish. Not only will your waistline be happy, but you’ll also be getting some much-needed nutrients to keep you healthy.

Pack Probiotics Start taking probiotics about 2 weeks before traveling for optimal use. When you change your environment, you risk drastically changing your microbiome. This can lead to being susceptible to all sorts of stomach and health issues which could put a damper on your vacation. Probiotics may help improve your gut health and reduce your chances of any stomach related problems.

Disconnect from Work Make sure to relax and enjoy the holiday season with your friends and family.  The holidays are already stressful enough, so let work stress take a back seat.  Lowering your stress can improve your immune system.  Start scheduling your OOO email reply now!
