Carry an empty water bottle or purchase-bottled water.
Although you are unable to carry liquids through airport security, you are allowed to carry an empty water bottle. On the way to your gate, be sure to stop by a water fountain and fill up your bottle. Or purchase a bottle of water once you are through security. Once you are on the plane don’t be afraid to ask the attendant to fill your bottle. This will ensure you stay hydrated before and during your flight.
Eat the right foods
- Chia Seeds – Chia seeds have hydrophilic properties, meaning they are attracted to water. They absorb 9 to 12 times their size in water, keeping you hydrated for longer. Try adding chia seeds to your water or food before your flight.
- Yogurt – Yogurt contains beneficial probiotic bacteria that strengthen your digestive system and entire immune system. Eating yogurt before a flight helps to build your immunity to the germs your body becomes vulnerable to during dehydration.
Fruits with high water content – Water does not have to be digested in the form of a drink; it can be digested in the form of foods. Fruits like berries, pineapple, cantaloupe, cucumbers and watermelon contain a high percentage of water. Eating a water rich breakfast of oatmeal and fruit will help you hydrate before takeoff.
The experts recommend that we consume 1.2 litres or 6-8 cups of water every day to make sure our bodies are properly hydrated.
So don’t make your travel experience horrible, rather take the time to drink plenty of water and enjoy the ride to your next destination!
