8 Ways to Stay Healthy on Your Next Big Road Trip

A road trip can be the most memorable vacation you ever take. You get to choose where you stop, what you see and how you get there, all while saving a ton of money on airfare.

That said, the sedentary aspect of a road trip isn’t the best for your health. It’s fun to hang out and relax in your car at first, but after a few hours pass, it can get old. It’s all too easy to fall back on bad habits.

Thankfully, there are a few simple ways to stay healthy on your next big road trip.

1. Plan Everything

That means putting more thought into your trip other than what books you’ll read or movies you’ll watch in the car. Think about what you typically do while on the road. Do you sleep most of the way to your destination? Do you tend to snack more because you’re bored?

Take some time to remember past excursions and what aspects of them made you feel unhealthy. Whatever it was that inspired you to learn about healthy habits is what you should work on avoiding first.
