Spring Break With SWW™

Spring Break With SWW®

Spring break is just around the corner. While vacations are fun, they can also be stressful and an easy time to fall off your wellness journey. We are here to take a little of the edge off with a few helpful SWW® approved tips to make your travels smoother.

Stay Hydrated - Ensure you and your kids pack your water bottles in your carry-ons. Drinking water before, during, and after travel is critical. Air travel dehydrates the body more rapidly than if you were on the ground, so make sure to sip throughout the journey.

Plan Your Snacks - Airports and rest stops are a treasure trove of unhealthy snacks packed with refined carbs and bad oils. Planning your travel snacks will allow you to stay on track with your health goals and prevent your kids from spiking their blood sugar, preventing a nasty crash. Take a little time the night before your trip to prepare a few snacks to keep you and your family fueled the right way.
  • Hard-boiled eggs
  • Pre-cut veggie sticks with hummus
  • Apple slices with nut butter
  • SWW Muffins
  • Primal Jerky Sticks
Alkalize - Getting a quick serving of greens at the start of your flight is a great idea. Adding a sachet of our SWW® Alkalize to your water bottle after boarding the plane will allow you to fight some of the fatigue air travel can bring from airport stress, altitude change, and jet lag.

Mineralize - Bookend the back end of your flight with our other supplement, SWW® Restore. Air travel can be so taxing on the body. Adding a sachet of this to your final drink of water before you land will let you disembark the plane feeling refreshed and replenished. Mineralizing will be a game-changer for how you start your vacation.

Keep That Blood Sugar Balanced - This tip applies to the whole trip for you and your kids. Keeping your blood sugar in check will allow your family to avoid burnout so you can fully enjoy all the activities you have planned for your trip. Make an effort to choose meals that are protein-forward. Another good tip is always combining a carb with something high in fat, protein, or fiber. Especially avoid overloading your kids with sugar during travel because this will lead to an energy surge that will bottom out, leaving them cranky and tired.

A little planning goes a long way when traveling with your family. We know you are up to your ears in packing lists, but these extra steps will make this spring break your best yet.
