Grata on the Go: Travel Routine
Updated: Dec 6, 2022
Summer is a wonderful time to travel, explore, and create memories with friends. Several of you have asked: how can one travel while maintaining routine, consistency, and balance? This summer I've traveled from NYC to Chicago, DC, Lake Waramaug, Long Island, Nantucket, and Denver.
Throughout my trips, I have tried to incorporate the following practices to help me feel more grounded while away:
Bring a reusable water bottle and drink water!
On the day of travel, I typically have 4 steps to optimal hydration:
Drink one bottle en route to the airport
Refill after security and finish another bottle pre-flight
Refill before boarding and hold off on other beverages in-flight (unless a Sprite is calling my name)
Refill once more at the destination airport before hopping in the car
I stay dedicated to hydration throughout my travels by keeping my water bottle with me and remembering to drink lots of water at meals as well.
