Hello! Today I’m sharing 3 tips for keeping your belly happy while you travel. I travel a lot and I run a lot and running + an upset stomach = no bueno. So I’m working with Align Probiotic to share some ideas on how to help keep your digestive system running well and avoid discomfort when you’re away from home.
Flat Belly Tips for Traveling this Summer
1. Stay hydrated.
When we’re traveling it’s easy to ‘forget’ about drinking water or it’s easy to skip because you don’t have your usual water bottle and sink available. This can lead to overeating (since thirst can feel like hunger) or an upset stomach or overall feeling of yuckyness. Keep a water bottle with you as your travel and try to drink as much as you do at home/work.
2. Pack smart snacks and probiotics.

“This summer I want to remind everyone the importance of keeping your digestive system balanced. Summer adventures can take you out of your daily routine, which can cause occasional digestive upsets and disrupt the natural balance of good bacteria in your gut. Align can help fortify your digestive system to Live 24/7.” – Ashley Koff, R.D.
3. Exercise… Do some digestive support or stress relief yoga poses or exercises.
I love in yoga class with the instructor leads us through a pose and points out something like, “This is massaging your liver…give it a lil hug…”
Vanessa Packer is the founder of modelFIT and she also has a nutrition background. She is sharing the moves below to help encourage healthy digestive balance.
^That one is just like giving yourself a lil hug, right?! Love it.
Bonus: Align comes in a 7 day circle pack in each box so it’s easy to keep track of taking it daily. And it doesn’t have to be refrigerated like some other probiotics.
Question: Do you have an traveling or fun summer trips on the calendar?
