PACK IT UP
Believe it or not, taking a little time ahead to prepare your packing can help you stay well when you’re travelling. Being prepared helps reduce stress, and thus protects your immune capacity to ward off new bugs and exotic food.
Start with deciding on shoes, since they’re bulky and take up a lot of room. Then try to pack as lightly as possible. Plot out what you plan to wear each day away. Pack a suitcase where pieces can mix and match. And if you’re traveling from a cold, wet climate to somewhere sunny and warm, make sure to leave enough space in your bag to pack a coat and heavier shoes for your return.
