Traveling can be stressful to say the least. Whether you’re traveling for business or for pleasure, unfamiliar environment, unusual schedules, and atypical eating patterns can wreak havoc on the emotions—and on the digestive system.
It’s hard to stay balanced when you’re on-the-go. Even if you’re not out of town, a particularly hectic day or week can really throw the body off its game. As difficult as it may seem to eat healthily and get enough sleep during particularly busy times, there are things you can do to keep your digestion on track.
Especially when travelling for pleasure and exploring new places, trying new cuisines is exciting and rewarding. However, eating outside of your typical pattern or pallet can cause digestive upset that lasts longer than that delicious half hour lunch. That’s not to say you shouldn’t try new things! Just be sure you listen to your body and take into account what you already know about how your body handles certain foods. Traveling, especially in different time zones, strains the body enough—don’t go out of your way to push your digestive system out of its comfort zone.
Getting enough fiber when you’re traveling is no small task. In fact, it’s hard enough to do in your normal day to day life! When you can, seek out whole foods, unprocessed snacks, and fruits and vegetables. Your digestive tract will thank you for skipping the vending machines and airport quick-e-marts.
