Battling Colds on the Road

Traveling While Sick Doesn't it feel like you have the worst luck sometimes? You're feeling healthy, strong and ready for your next business trip. You make it through the long flight and the first day of meetings. And then you wake up the next morning, congested, coughing and sneezing. Your head is pounding and the last thing you want to do is get out of bed.

Being sick while traveling is the worst, so obviously, you should do everything you can to to avoid it. The best way to do this is to stick to your normal routine. Try your hardest to stick to your same diet and sleep routine. When traveling in busy places it's also important to wash your hands often, keep distance possible between you and the person sitting next to you on the plane, and if you are sick dispose properly of tissues. It's all stuff we learned growing up, and just because you are traveling there is no excuse to slack off on healthy habits.
