I made it to London and it was amazing! Although I was only here for one day and now boarding a plane to Zurich, I wanted to share a couple of my health rituals I’ve done while traveling so far.
If you follow me on Instagram you would know that recently I’m obsessed with turmeric and ginger. Well I decided to implement these roots into my travel routine. I did a little research before leaving and found a couple different health benefits from these while traveling.
We ran into a Whole Foods randomly in London and I took advantage of the opportunity to grab me an Clint a turmeric shot. I was so happy to find this because I was feeling a little jet lagged from the flight and I know turmeric boosts antioxidant levels and brain functionality. After taking the shot, which was very good by the way, I felt a lot better. Clint actually liked it too. The first time trying turmeric you might think it’s spicy and tart but it grows on you and taking shots like this that have a hint of juice flavoring always help. It’s definitely an acquired taste. This one had pineapple juice so it was tasty.
Turmeric is also an anti-inflammatory and helps with digestion. These benefits are very important to me. It can help you with any swelling and head pressure that may be caused by flying.
Turmeric and ginger’s digestion help is huge for me. While traveling in the past I have had issues with not being able to go. I know gross, but this is real. It’s so annoying when trying to be cute, especially trying to enjoy a vacation with looking and feeling bloated in pictures. LOL. I drank a ginger latte that I found in a local cafe/juice bar. And that along with the turmeric shot, let’s just say I haven’t had any issues not being able to go.
I am so excited to share more health benefits along the way. I wanted to keep this one short and simple, but I will write another post about all the different benefits you can get from turmeric and ginger in the future.
Extra tip: Trying bring your favorite teas along with you. Since it’s my first long flight, I am feeling a bit tired and anxious. I regularly drink a herbal chamomile/lavender relaxation tea. It helps me feel calm so I can sleep. You can easily ask for free hot water anywhere and this has been a huge help for me. Clint thought I was crazy at first but he is impressed now as I sip my FREE tea on the plane ride to Zurich.
I Hope you guys are enjoying my posts and following along! London was great now off to Zurich to meet my best friend. I’m so excited to see her new home.
