5 Tips to Keep Your Energy Up While Traveling

All Transportation Travel Blog

Traveling can be grueling.  Here are a few tips to keep you alert. 

 

1. Sleep

Keeping your energy up by sleeping might sound contradictory, but a quality night of sleep will make a world of difference in your travels.  Take a siesta.   Relax.  Overworking yourself during travel can be quite damaging.  It's important to take the opportunity to refresh yourself.  If you are going on a long road trip, take turns driving or pull over.  Driving sleepy is extremely dangerous.

2. Drink Coffee or Tea

Try not to add a bunch of sweeteners. The purer, the better!  Added sweeteners might make your drink tastier, but ultimately it can cause grogginess. While sugar seems to give you a boost of energy, it'll quickly fade. Not a big coffee or tea fan?  Try to supplement with these herbs.  Still not a fan?  Drink good ole fashion H20.  It's honestly the best energy drink to keep you awake.

3. Eat Smart

Avoid heavy meals.  Food is fuel and should be treated as such.  Again, stay away from items containing large amounts of sugar.  Be wary of protein bars!  Some "energy" bars are not much more nutritional that a candy bar.  You can always play it save and pack dried fruits and nuts.

4. Avoid Quick Fixes

Energy drinks and pills might seem like a smart move, but the quick boost might not be so good in the long run.  Remember what goes up must come down.  Your energy will drain just as fast as it went up.

5.  Exercise 

Do jumping jacks, go for a walk.  Remaining sedentary can cause you to become exhausted.  "Contrary to popular belief, exercising doesn't make you tired -- it literally creates energy in your body. Your body rises up to meet the challenge for more energy by becoming stronger," says nutritionist Samantha Heller, MS, RD, a nutrition adviser for the Journey for Control diabetes program."
