How to Prevent Travel Aches

How to Prevent Aches and Pains For Stress-Free Travel

Staying healthy and stress-free throughout the holidays is not always an easy task. One reason for aches and pains is the ways we have to twist our bodies and lug heavy suitcases or shopping bags while rushing through the day. Here's how you can help prevent and combat these pains while traveling.

  • Cramped airplane seats and hours of waiting for delayed flights can subject your body to lots of uncomfortable positioning. Take time to do these in-flight stretches to help prevent getting sore. Each stretch allows joints and muscles to move more freely in a cramped environment.
  • Rushing from party to party? Give your feet a rest by doing these leg-strengthening exercises made especially for high-heel wearers; they'll help ensure that you don't suffer for fashion.
  • Even if you've opted for more comfortable shoes, being on the go all day long can lead to tired feet. Get some fast relief by rolling a tennis ball or ice-cold water bottle under your feet; you'll massage sore arches and soothe overworked soles in no time.
  • When you're stressed, chances are you hold the tension in your neck. Take time to do these tension-relieving head and neck stretches so you don't get sidelined by a headache.
