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.
Packing a Wellness Travel Bag
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.
