The world is opening up again and many of us avid travelers can’t wait to grab our passports and hop on the next flight out of here. Our search for endless beaches and pina coladas should not come at the expense of our health, however, so if you are thinking of jet-setting around the world here are a few tips you may want to remember.
1. Fly at off-peak times
When I travel I will most likely book red-eye or set out to find a flight that takes off at odd hours of the night. Simply because fewer people will be flying. With the airplanes still packing people in like sardines, I would like to increase my chances of having seats around me clear.
2. last stall
When using airport bathrooms most people will automatically go for the closest stalls. To decrease your chances of catching something opt for the furthest stall
3. Use plastic
If you can use plastic eating utensils that are enclosed when eating out while traveling, do so. While the metal utensils should be clean this way there is little doubt that nothing is lingering on your knife or fork when you eat.
4. Carry alcohol
Not the kind that you drink, although you could do that too, the ethanol alcohol you spray, and don’t be afraid to use it everywhere! Spray your seats, tray tables, and armrest with alcohol before sitting. If you can use an airport seat cover as well.
