How to Stay Healthy During Holiday Travel


EXOS founder Mark Verstegen recently shared his go-to healthy holiday travel advice with U.S. News & World Report. Here are a couple tips from the article:

Stay active.

Exercise will boost your energy and mood while traveling, says Verstegen. Wear comfortable shoes so you can walk around the airport terminal instead of sitting down to wait for boarding. And make a few trips up and down the aisle during your flight, even if you don't need the restroom. In the car, take breaks every two or three hours for a quick burst of fresh air and brisk walk around the service station. "Even ten minutes will do," Verstegen says.

Avoid the holiday splurge-and-starve cycle.

Verstegen finds that when people eat a large meal or overindulge, "there's a tendency to say 'I overate at dinner last night, so I'll just skip breakfast and lunch.'" Steer clear of that downward spiral, he says. Better to break the cycle right away by starting the next morning with a quick walk and light, nutritious breakfast, and fill up with a snack and a glass of water before you sit down to the next tempting meal.
