Everybody wants to be able to remain energetic and in good health while traveling, particularly when this travel is part of a military move; however, the combination of low nutritious food on the road and the stress of the relocation itself can cause you and your family to become more susceptible to illness. Fortunately there are some tips that can help you to stay healthy even during the most hectic part of military relocation.
Medical check-ups should be scheduled prior to military relocation. Ensure that all your immunizations are fully up to date and you might even want to think about everyone in the family getting a flu vaccination, particularly if you are going to be traveling in the middle of flu season. It is also a good idea to get any prescriptions filled before the move.
One good method to ensure that you and your family stay healthy during travel is to pick a supply of wipes and hand sanitizers. Whether you are traveling by airplane or by motor vehicle, you should keep a good selection of these products handy at all times.
