According to AAA, more Americans than ever are traveling this Christmas, which means lots of airplane rides.
And chances are you could sit next to a stranger who may be sick.
So how can you stay healthy while traveling?
Health experts say your remedy should start before you even take flight.
Try to keep a balanced, healthy diet, exercise regularly and keep a steady sleep routine.
This way your body will be at its best before traveling.
And forget about wasting money on vitamin C supplements.
Researchers say there is no evidence that taking extra vitamin C will boost your immune system.
The CDC recommends getting the flu vaccine in case you are exposed to someone with the flu who doesn’t show any signs of it.
Don’t be afraid to wear a mask on the plane to cover your mouth and nose.
It’s a good barrier between you and others who may be exposing you to coughing and sneezing.
And if you’re the one who is sick, do everyone a favor and don’t take flight.
You can buy travel insurance for a small fee.
It will allow you to cancel your flight and be reimbursed for the airfare should you fall ill before your trip.
