Got any summer trips (via car, plane, or train) planned this year? Travel can be tough on the body. Here are some suggestions to keep you healthy when you’re on the go.
• Make the World Your Playground. Do heel lifts at the gas station, pelvic tilts everywhere, toe lifts standing at line for a ride, shoulder elevation and depression waiting for the movie to start, plank anywhere that looks cool. Just start to think of the world as a place where you can play and move the body whenever you get a chance. Do high knees if you’re standing waiting for a light to change.
• Try to get a good night’s sleep before you leave. Give yourself a little back or foot rub to help you fall asleep and relax.
• Bring some healthy snacks that you know make you feel good. Make your own trail mix and travel with fruit.
