Hydration Hacks For Holiday Travel

December 21, 2023 2 min read

The holiday season often means traveling—whether it's to visit family, escape for a winter getaway, or explore new destinations. But amidst the excitement of travel, staying hydrated can sometimes take a backseat. Long flights, changing climates, and altered routines can easily disrupt your hydration routine. Here are some expert tips to keep you refreshed and hydrated throughout your holiday adventures.

Pre-Travel Preparation

  1. Hydrate Before You Fly: Start your hydration journey before takeoff. Drink plenty of water in the days leading up to your travel day. This preemptive hydration helps set a good baseline for your body.

  1. Bring Your Own Bottle: Invest in a reusable water bottle that you can take with you on your travels. Ensure it's empty before airport security, then fill it up afterward to have hydration on hand throughout your journey. We recommend theHydroJug Traveler. It’s leakproof and easy to carry through the airport!

In-Flight Hydration

  1. Sip, Don't Guzzle: During the flight, resist the urge to guzzle large amounts of water at once. Sip water consistently throughout the journey to avoid discomfort and frequent restroom trips.

  1. Skip the Sugary and Caffeinated Drinks: While it might be tempting to reach for soda or coffee, they can contribute to dehydration. Opt for water or herbal teas instead.

Combatting Climate Changes

  1. Adjust for Different Climates: If traveling to a different climate, your body might need more hydration. Hot or cold weather can increase water loss, so be mindful of increasing your intake accordingly.

  1. Moisturize Inside and Out: Consider using a hydrating mist or saline nasal spray to combat dry air on flights. External hydration for your skin can complement internal hydration.

Post-Travel Recovery

  1. Rehydrate Upon Arrival: After reaching your destination, prioritize rehydration. Drink a glass of water before diving into holiday festivities to replenish lost fluids from travel.

  1. Monitor Alcohol and Caffeine Intake: Be mindful of consuming alcoholic or caffeinated beverages excessively, as they can contribute to dehydration. Alternate with water to maintain hydration levels.

By being proactive and mindful about your hydration habits, you can ensure that you arrive at your destination feeling refreshed and ready to enjoy the festive season.
