Acknowledge Your Travel Jitters
It’s normal to feel anxious, stressed out, and nervous before you travel. No matter how much of a seasoned traveler you are, you’re bound to worry about something before you depart whether it be forgetting an item, a long and restless flight or car ride, or the logistics once you arrive at your destination.
Some signs of travel anxiety include:
- Not being able to sleep before your trip
- Irritability with your travel partners
- Inability to focus on work or fun activities
- Constant worrying about packing and preparing
- Nightmares about travel disasters
- Financial worries
Luckily, there are plenty of tools to help you stay calm while traveling. We’re here to help with that.
Traveling can be a fun, enlightening experience; it doesn’t have to work your nerves. When you feel well-prepared physically and mentally, you can enjoy your trip without worries!
Pack Your Travel Bags Early
Don’t wait until the night before you leave to pack. Make sure your carry-on bag and other travel bags are stocked with personal hygiene items, the clothes and supplies you’ll need for your trip, any supplements, and other travel essentials.
Rest Up Before Your Trip
Getting poor sleep can amplify feelings of stress and anxiety. Try to get seven to nine hours of sleep each night before you leave for your trip. This is a good general rule to follow, but especially in the nights leading up to travel. If you start your trip off with inadequate sleep then that could set the tone for your whole vacation and be an immediate tax on your immune system.
Whether you’re flying or riding as a passenger in a car, train, or bus, take a pair of headphones or earbuds. You can turn on relaxing music or even do a meditation session with plenty of privacy. Having something to listen to can make the time go faster or feel more pleasant as you personalize your experience, and headphones can also help to block out unwanted noises that might make your trip less enjoyable.
Hydrate and Eat Properly
Especially if you’re flying on an airplane, flight can cause more dehydration than usual, so it’s important to drink plenty of water while traveling. Be sure to take water bottles onto the plane with you, or if you’re traveling by other means then have them readily available in the car, bus, or train. Leave yourself time to pick up healthy snacks or meals as well so you’re nourished during travel when food items might not be available for several hours. This will all help your immune system stay boosted and strong, especially at the start of a big trip so you can set off on the right foot!
Managing Flight Anxiety
Flying on an airplane can be a stressful experience for anyone, regardless of age or experience. Many people feel a loss of control and significant anxiety about plane ride disasters.
Statistically speaking, airplane rides are safer than riding in cars. However, this does little to ease most peoples’ nerves, especially since anxiety isn’t always rational.
Flying on an airplane can (and should) be a relaxing, restful experience. That’s where Serenelle® comes in.
Serenelle®: Calm Your Nerves While Flying
Serenelle® is our premium stress relief supplement. Unlike other anti-stress supplements, Serenelle® provides non-drowsy, energizing stress relief so that you can stay on top of your travel plans.*
This supplement is especially helpful for parents and others who must stay awake, alert, and calm throughout their flights. Serenelle® can increase clarity and focus while simultaneously reducing feelings of stress.*
Serenelle® works to balance the stress hormones your body releases when you’re worrying about something.* Balancing stress hormones will signal to your body that you’re safe and reduce physical symptoms of stress.
This supplement also helps your brain generate calming waves called alpha waves. Beta waves are responsible for nerve-racking sensations and emotions, so by promoting alpha wave formation, Serenelle® helps your brain calm down.*
Serenelle® contains adaptogens, natural compounds that combat physical stressors in your body.* This means that as you board your flight, you can feel at ease and tension-free.
Stay Healthy While Traveling: Immune Health Supplements
Our immune system support supplements can help you remain healthy as you travel to and through your destination.
It’s important to keep your body healthy when you travel. During travel, you are exposed to new people and places, which can challenge your immune system. By taking Quality of Life immune health supplements, you can feel well enough to fully experience your destinations.*
Boost Your Immune Function with AHCC®*
AHCC® supplements are some of our most popular products. With AHCC® in your travel bag, you can enjoy your experiences as your immune system functions smoothly.*
AHCC® is a proprietary blend of mushroom root extracts that boosts and supports your immune system’s defenses.* This compound works with specific immune cells to facilitate better, more efficient immune function.*
Our AHCC® supplements are beneficial for the following:
- Boost immune resistance*
- Strengthen and speed up immune responses*
- Promote peak T-cell activity*
- Promote optimal natural killer cell activity*
- Increase populations and activities of dendritic cells*
- Manage macrophage activity*
This proprietary ingredient gives your immune cells the extra help they need to fight off health threats.*
Immune Support, Detoxification, and Protection: Advasorb® Vitamin C*
Advasorb® Vitamin C is the ultimate Vitamin C supplement.* Typical vitamin C supplements are poorly absorbed in your body, which makes them far less effective.
Advasorb® Vitamin C contains a fast-absorbing form of vitamin C to deliver maximum health benefits right into your system.* Your body can better use the vitamin C in Advasorb® Vitamin C for immune health, detoxification, and anti-aging.*
Vitamin C is a natural antioxidant. This means it protects against free radical damage, which harms healthy cells and tissues in your body.
Advasorb® Vitamin C contains milk thistle extract, which detoxifies your system.* Milk thistle has been shown to help remove tobacco smoke, heavy metals, and other toxins that could harm your health.*
When you’re traveling, you never know what could be in the air, and regardless it is an environment your system isn’t regularly used to. Take Advasorb® Vitamin C for optimal immune system and health protection.*
