Dr. Kayode Sotonwa suggests that to stay healthy and prevent common side effects of traveling be sure to drink plenty of water; more water than you might normally. Commonly occurring afflictions due to traveling can often be prevented or stopped by staying well hydrated. Headaches, digestive upsets, and jet lag are things that can sometimes plague travelers. Extra hydration will help these conditions. Of course if you are suffering from these conditions and it is truly affecting the quality of your travel time, be sure to seek any needed medication. Dr. Kayode Sotonwa knows that many over the counter medications for these aliments can be found in most hotels and convent stores.
However, knowing you should and actually drinking more water are two different things. Having a re-usable water bottle that you like using can help with this. Something that is easy to fill, comfortable to hold and will not leak is going to be your best choice. If you are not a water drinker, or you do not like the taste of the local water, adding a powdered or liquid supplement can add taste and sometimes vitamins and electrolytes. Single serve packets of the powder and small bottles of concentrate are easy to carry around and can greatly increase your water intake. Dr. Kayode Sotonwa knows that drinking plenty of water will help keep you feeling well and healthy throughout your trip.
