Have you ever thought about your health while traveling? Just turning on the news right now is nearly enough to make you think you should avoid busy tourist attractions and crowds.
Things to pack in a wellness bag so you can stay healthy on the go.

I don’t know about you, but this year brought new resolutions and a stronger determination to stay healthy and to get fit. Last year, my husband was critically injured when he fell nearly two stories and suffered a severe spinal injury.

Miraculously, he survived his life-threatening injuries which included a spinal injury. But the past year has been a year of change for us full of adjustments. First, as he was recovering, and I was caring for him and now as he learns that he can’t do everything that he used to do right now.

More than ever, he and I are aware of just how precious life is, how miraculous our bodies are, and the need to practice better self-care so we can be the best versions of ourselves. With that comes a shift in how we think. We’ve had nearly 50 years to solidify some bad habits that aren’t easy to break. But we’re determined to take one step at a time towards improved health.

One way to improve our health is to improve our activity level. Two weeks ago, we went on our first van camping trip, a test run to see if my husband was ready for a getaway. We found out that even though he was pretty comfortable with his spinal pillow, he wasn’t quite ready for van camping.

We also realized that when it comes to road-tripping, three hours max is about as long as he can sit comfortably in the car each day. But the upside to that is he needs to get out more, which means we can take short walks which lines up perfectly with our goal to be more active.

Speaking of aging, things aren’t as regular as they once were, especially when your schedule is disrupted by travel and once illness hits, it takes a bit longer to bounce back. 

Packing a Wellness Travel Bag

A wellness bag for travel.
As I’ve matured, I’ve discovered it pays to be proactive when combating illness which is why I’ve put together a wellness bag with some of my favorite products that I’ve picked up at Walmart.

Let’s take a peek inside my wellness to-go bag to find out how I combat this and work to stay healthy when on the road.

Metamucil Fiber Thins

Metamucil Fiber Thins

My travel bag is stocked with plenty of Metamucil Fiber Thins. Available in Chocolate, Cinnamon Spice and Apple Crisp, at 100 calories per pack, I even munch on them when hiking to stave off hunger pangs, plus, they provide up to 20% of your daily recommended value of fiber to promote digestive health.* The hiking helps with that too. Metamucil traps and removes waste, so you’ll feel lighter and less sluggish.* If you ask me, that’s a must to travel comfortably! Did you know they are also the #1 doctor recommended fiber brand on the market?* 

Align

Align Dualbiotic Gummies

The great-tasting, easy to chew Align Dualbiotic Gummies are also indispensable for a healthy gut. They contain prebiotic fiber and inulin to help nourish good bacteria in your digestive system. They also contain less than 1% sugar per gummy and are packed with natural fruit flavors.

Source Naturals
Source Naturals® Wellness Formula®

With high-potency Vitamin C and 25 more key nutrients and herbs like echinacea, elderberry and garlic all in one product, Source Naturals® Wellness Formula® is my go-to product. Just look at everything it offers:
  • Supports immune health
  • Supports a healthy respiratory system by promoting normal mucus production
  • Keeps your white blood cells healthy and free of free radicals and healthy  
  • Promotes a healthy response to stress 
This momma has been under a lot of physical stress lately because let’s face it, life likes to throw us curve balls which is why it’s so important to unlock the power of wellness to support your health, so you’ll Live Unstoppable™. 

Source Naturals Wellness Formula can be used to ward off that icky feeling when you start to feel under the weather or as a maintenance product.

Vicks

Vicks VapoCOOL SEVERE Drops

My husband and I have been known to wake up with a sore throat when traveling, especially when van camping. For this reason, I toss a bag of Vicks VapoCOOL SEVERE Drops in my wellness bag. 
 
The drops provide Maximum-strength relief that soothes your sore throat with its targeted intense cooling with Benzocaine, a powerful numbing agent to vaporize your sore throat pain so you can continue to enjoy your time away from home. Vicks VapoCOOL SEVERE Drops provide a rush of Vicks Vapors with 33% more medicine*.   
 
You can learn more about these products at www.WalmartHealthSupport.com.
 
It doesn’t matter if you’re road-tripping or flying, you’ll find these products easy to pack. Other items in my wellness bag include bandages, essential oils, hand sanitizer, a refillable water bottle so you stay hydrated, and pain relief for my husband.  
 
After last year, we’ve got some making up to do when it comes to hiking, biking, van camping and traveling. We don’t want anything to get in our way.  

What steps do you take to stay healthy when you travel? Do you have a wellness pack? Are these products in it?
