11 Ways to Avoid Getting Sick While Traveling

2) Stay Hydrated

Water is going to become your new best friend the next time you travel. It is important to always carry a large water bottle when you go on a trip, to stay hydrated and stay healthy. Water is important for many of the functions your body performs every day. When you are dehydrated your body struggles to flush out toxins out of your system. When you’re hydrated, your first level of defense works at its optimal level. One example is the mucous membrane in your nasal cavity. If this membrane dries up from water dehydration, germs are more likely to make their way into your body. Every person’s body requires a different amount of water to function best but it is recommended that people drink eight 8 oz. glasses of water every day.
