A jetsetter's guide to staying healthy on the go

If you’re a self-confessed jetsetter, chances are your life revolves around boarding passes and luxe villas. For the most part, health and wellness might not be part of your travel routine. However, taking a vacation is no excuse to skip healthy habits, so we spoke with leading luxury villa booking portal TheLuxeNomad.com who enlisted the help of their savvy Celeb Nomads on how to avoid bringing home extra pounds as a souvenir.

Strengthen your immune system

This starts at home. Before your trip, take time to get enough rest and eat plenty of vegetables, fruits, nuts, and seeds. Drinking multivitamins and probiotics can help prevent an unwanted cold or flu that could put a serious damper on your vacation.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate

Celeb Nomad Chloe Chapman, founder of Aloé Swimwear, stresses the importance of drinking the recommended 2L of water per day. “Flying tends to dehydrate me because of lack of humidity in the cabin air, so I try to so stay away from drinking anything caffeinated or alcoholic when I’m in transit,” she says. “Theres nothing worse than waking up with a flight hangover!”


Not only does it help burn the calories, but it’s a great way to explore a new surrounding by experiencing everything on a local level. “The best way to learn a city is to walk it,” says Celeb Nomad Lesley Murphy, a travel blogger and former Bachelor contestant. “Skip the double decker bus tour for the city’s free walking tour. If you’re close to a mountain, hike it. If you’re near a sand dune, board it. There really are no excuses, and all options above are great ways to explore new destinations!”

Sydney-based socialite and Celeb Nomad Shiralee Coleman agrees, “If I am close to the ocean, I will run along the beach, of if I am staying in the city I will go along the sights. Then treat myself with a nice coffee and breakfast afterwards.”


If you’re stuck in a hotel room, there’s always YouTube. “I love a little youtube yoga session… You just can’t go wrong!” says Chloe.

Indulge… in moderation

Admittedly, we know travel can be a good excuse to forget about your well-balanced diet. “For me, part of traveling is experiencing a culture’s cuisine, but in moderation,” says Lesley. “One macaron in Paris, one Italian gelato, one Finnish pastry. You get the picture.”

Ward off germs

Don’t ruin your vacation by catching a cold on the airplane. Make it a staple to have a small hand sanitizer in your bag. Other essentials include disinfecting wipes, light shawl or blanket, bandages and reusable water bottle. You’ll never know when unsuspecting germs come in your way.
