4 Superfoods to Take Before and During Your Next Trip Abroad

Eating healthy both before and during your travels will do wonders for keeping both your mind and body sharp, and one way to make sure you’re getting proper nutrition is to incorporate various superfoods into your diet.

You’ve likely heard about a number of popular superfoods including acai berries, avocados, kale, turmeric, and ginger among the line up of foods that are super-charged with health benefits. Foods such as these which have garnered the title of being a superfood are often packed with healthy vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants which can help to boost things like energy, focus, and stamina while also aiding your immune system to function as it should be.

Travel really can affect both your mental and physical health in substantial ways thanks to jetlag and adjusting to new time zones, falling into new sleep and eating patterns, exhaustion, and being exposed to new allergens and pathogens.

In order to give your body and mind the best chance of staying healthy, stick to a well balanced diet and try incorporating some of these lesser-known superfoods you may not be familiar with the next time you travel.

Self-Care While Traveling

Looking after yourself is one of the most crucial to-dos, especially when you are away from home. But so many of us see travel as an escape, that we tend to let our self care slip.

I’m personally guilty of the ‘calories on vacation don’t count’ mentality, and forgetting to apply sunscreen as I would in my normal day at the beach (if you haven’t seen photos of my sunburn in the Galapagos and Antarctica they’ll make you cringe!).

So to make sure we’re having the best vacation possible, and returning home without needing a self care recorrect, here are four areas of self-care worth your attention when traveling.

How to Enjoy Happier & Less Stressful Travel

Travel is supposed to be about relaxing and getting away from your normal daily stress and anxiety, which makes it quite surprising that recent surveys have shown nearly 90% of people consider travel these days to be stressful.

So is there any hope of escaping stress on your next escape and hopefully enjoying a sense of happiness?

The sad truth is that we only have ourselves to blame for being stressed while traveling, whether it’s trying to tick a long list of experiences off we feel we need to have or not giving ourselves enough flexibility to deal with unforeseen events or circumstances.

Thankfully, there are adjustments you can make to enjoy happier and less stressful travel and it often starts simply with changing your perspective and getting rid of expectations. No matter the destination or your budget, any vacation can be a successful and rewarding experience if you want it to be.

Join the All Female Kilimanjaro Trek on International Women’s Day 2022!

Join the All Female Kilimanjaro Trek on International Women’s Day 2022!

I’ve written a lot about how climbing Mt Kilimanjaro changed my life; it pushed me to discover my physical and mental abilities, and transformed my whole perspective on life.

Oh, and I returned home from Kili with a husband (husbands not included in this March 2022 all female tour!).

But as I was climbing the mountain for my own personal development, I didn’t stop to notice that there was not one single female porter or guide. This was 2010, and fastforward 11 years, guiding trekkers to the summit of Kilimanjaro is still a male dominated world; fewer than 1% of the total guides being female.

Glory Thobias founded Tanzania Women Guides Foundation to change this by providing training and showing a career in guiding as a viable option for women. And to support these efforts, Solo Female Travelers is climbing to the top of Kilimanjaro on an all-female guide, porter and trekker team, to celebrate International Women’s Day 2022.

Will you join to climb to the top of Africa this coming March?

Ekrin B37: The Best Portable Massage Gun for Travel & Outdoor Adventure

Ever craved a deep muscle massage while traveling? Maybe your muscles are tight from all day exploring Angkor Wat, or your back is killing you from that airline seat you’ve been strapped into for 10 hours.

Massage guns have always been a tool used in fitness; they relieve pain, reduce soreness, and improve performance for both gym junkies and athletes.

Using them improves the circulatory system, central nervous system, and all of the connective tissues in your body: muscles, joints, ligaments, tendons, bones, cartilage, and fascia.

But there’s another activity that puts stress on your body: Travel and outdoor adventure (OK that’s two activities, but for me they go hand in hand!)

And to cut down on the high cost of spa treatments when traveling, a massage gun that you own; that you can pull out at any time and use for unlimited recovery; is a brilliant option.

Portable, light, and in a travel case with 8 hours of battery life, the Ekrin B37 is a fantastic massage gun to take with you for travel, and have on every outdoor adventure.

Best Countries for Travelers and Expats with Disabilities

Whether it’s booking a simple holiday overseas or planning a move to another country, it can be an extra anxious time if you have a disability. Knowing whether your chosen destination offers things like accessible public transport and attractions, Braille signs and currency, and information around the general legal rights and welfare system is important.

People with disabilities understand the need for accessibility. Moving is already full of uncertainty, and not knowing whether your chosen relocation destination is accessible can only add to the stress.

Thankfully, there are a number of countries that are taking steps to make disabled persons feel more inclusive by implementing ways to help them navigate daily public life.
