My 5 Smart Essentials While Traveling

I received compensation from Bayer Consumer Health, makers of MiraLAX® to write this post. MiraLAX® is a laxative used to treat occasional constipation. All opinions are entirely my own. #ReLAXOnTheGo #CollectiveBias


5 smart essentials while traveling


We love to travel especially that now my kids are home for summer. Staying as healthy as I can while traveling is a must for me but can be a bit tricky.


Staying healthy while traveling


The last thing I want is to come back home feeling blah from a good vacation because I slacked on my healthy routine. I have found 5 smart essentials while traveling that are an absolute must for me. I can not leave home without them.



My Smart Essentials While Traveling

  1. A good reusable water bottle

Staying hydrated is a must while traveling. While you are out and about walking more your body needs the extra water especially in the heat of the summer. I always take a reusable water bottle with me and keep lemon water in it.

  1. My own pillow

No matter if we are staying with family or at a hotel nothing is like your own pillow from home. Having a good nights rest is crucial when traveling since you are out of your routine.

My husband always laughs at me but a momma needs a good night sleep!

  1. MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax®


I have a tendency to go off my normal diet while traveling like many of us do which is not always the best on my stomach. I also tend to suffer from occasional constipation and get that bloated feeling even more when we travel.

Healthy Essentials While Traveling


MiraLAX® works naturally with the water in your body to hydrate, soften and ease to provide effective relief from occasional constipation. Best of all there are no harsh side effects. No one wants to deal with that while traveling.


Healthy Essentials while traveling


The MiraLAX® Mix-In Pax are SO convenient while traveling since they are a single serving size. I found mine at Target.

Use as directed.

  1. Healthier snacks

I pack things like almonds, fruit, and veggies and put them into small individual sandwich bags.

While I am at home I really watch what I eat but while on vacation I love to try new things which may not be the healthiest.

Before we go out for a meal I like to snack on healthier options. This prevents me from overeating and I am still getting in the foods I need to stay healthy.





  1. My gym sneakers

Even if we are traveling to a place where sitting on the beach is all we do I always pack my gym shoes.

Y’all know I like to workout every day and even though I am on vacation this routine does not stop for me. Even if it is just 30 minutes a day I try to jog. I do not hit the gym but I keep my cardio going while I am traveling.

What are your smart essentials while traveling?
