Between flu season and the global worry of coronavirus, take as many precautions as you can whether you’re traveling by plane, train or automobile. Here are a few ways to stay healthy on your trip to D.C….Hydrate: When you’re traveling, it seems like you’re always on-the-go, so make sure you keep your body hydrated. Studies have shown that drinking water helps boost your immune system, and most of us probably don’t drink enough water on a normal day, so it’s important to ABDW. Always. Be. Drinking. Water. Just make sure you know where the restrooms are located. Also, don’t be scared to have a glass of OJ with breakfast. Vitamin C can be your best friend when you’re exposed to a lot of germs.Wash your hands: Washing your hands is always a good idea when you’re traveling and anytime you’re going out in public. You really can’t wash your hands too often, but when you’re on the go, you don’t always have a chance. Keep some travel-size hand sanitizer around and use it often. If you’re using airport bathrooms, it’s not a terrible idea to wash your hands before and after you go. And although you may feel like a weirdo, it’s a good idea to use paper towels if you have to touch any doorknobs when you’re leaving a public restroom.Don’t eat anything sketchy: I love eating at hole in the wall restaurants, but unless I’ve heard great things about a place, I use precautions when eating in a city I’m less than familiar with. You’ll probably be fine, but even a tiny chance of getting sick is a huge deal when you’re on the road. It would really be a bummer to successfully avoid everything that’s going around and then get taken down by food poisoning. Just be mindful of your food choices.Bring a surgical mask just in case: Some of you might think that this is overkill, but if you’re sitting in close proximity to someone who’s coughing on your flight, you’re going to be glad you brought a couple of disposable surgical masks along.Be safe, have fun and see you all at #CUNAGAC!last_img read more
