Where to Start

Whether you're traveling across the world or making a short drive to your hometown, holiday travel can lead to physical discomfort from longer periods of immobility. To help, here are our top three tips to travel more comfortably.

Stay Hydrated

Though it may seem counterproductive during travel, we have a secret to hydrate without frequent trips to the restroom— water-rich foods. Fruits and veggies with high water content such as watermelon, oranges, cucumbers, celery, and tomatoes can help hydrate the body without too many fluids.

If traveling by plane, it’s more likely to become dehydrated more quickly due to the drier environment. As a general rule of thumb, drink 250 ml of water every hour at 30,000 feet. The key here? Drink small amounts more frequently and don’t wait until you’re thirsty to start sipping.

Wear Compression

Compression from the ankle or calf can help promote continuous circulation in your legs, reduce swelling, and support the muscles during times of immobility. Wearing a compression pant or legging that offers this type of support can help improve comfort levels while in flight or the car. Looking for a compression garment to wear during travel? Shop Marena’s Travel Legging for Women or Low Waist Legging for Men for your road trip or flight this holiday season.

Move + Stretch

No matter your method of travel, it’s important to keep moving to help maintain circulation levels. Take advantage of those gas station pitstops and stretch your legs for a few minutes… literally. Stretching will help relieve muscle tension and bring oxygen to the muscles to reduce lactic acid build up. On a plane? Take a moment to stand and walk up and down the aisle or to the restroom, more than once if you’re on a lengthy flight.
