2. Drink water

You can always take a reusable water bottle with you when you travel, which you can fill also at the airport terminal and further anywhere along your way. Dehydration is the first thing, which you must know during a long flight. It can lead to a weakening of the immune system. Try to refrain from overly salty foods and alcohol during the flight, which also contributes to dehydration.

3. Sleep

If you cross several time zones, it is very important to recover during the flight. If you are traveling from west to east, take sleeping pills or foods high in melatonin, and if from east to west, go to bed early on arrival. Avoid alcohol, coffee and spicy on the first day after arrival – this will help to quickly restore the schedule. Lack of quality sleep can lead to overeating. Make sure that you have at least 7-8 hours of sleep per day.

4. Leave excuses at home

Traveling and business trips can be complicated and fussy, but this should not be a reason to stop taking care of yourself. The first rule – try to eat healthy food. The breakfast is the most important step to set up all day. Even if you are in a hurry, do not allow yourself to eat fast food or something similarly harmful. Even if you have business lunches or dinners, choose something healthy from the menu and abstain from alcohol.

Before the flight, look at the website of the airline, what kind of food they have. Better to eat in advance before departure, so as do not be tempted by what is offered in flight and at the airport. You will have more time to sleep without being distracted by food.

5. Choose a longer path

A long walk is always a good idea, wherever you are. A walk in the morning is perhaps the most correct start of the day.Try do not take a taxi, because to overcome the distance on foot is the best way to stay in motion. It will also allow more to see and learn. Remember, to stay healthy, it is recommended to take 10,000 steps per day.
