1. Replenish Your Electrolytes:

When you travel, it's easy to become dehydrated, especially if you're flying on long-haul flights. This is where electrolytes come in handy. Not only do they keep you hydrated, but they also help to prevent cramps and keep your energy levels up. Whether you prefer electrolyte tablets or mixing powders, make sure to pack some to keep you feeling refreshed throughout your trip. Personally, whether I am home or traveling, I love Ultima's Cherry Pomegranate. The little stickpacks are easy to pack and I fill up my Stanley cup in the morning with water and a packet. They have zero sugar, zero calories, and zero carbs - just the good stuff! Non-GMO, and has Magnesium, Potassium, and Calcium.

2. Keep Your Beverages Cold With A Stanley Cup:

Really, any beverage cup will do, but I prefer the Stanley. It's a sturdy container that keeps your drinks cold for hours on end and prevents spills with its secure lid, has a straw, handle and the bottom fits nicely in car cup holders. Plus, it's eco-friendly, so you can feel good about reducing your plastic usage while traveling. Hotels and restaurants always have places you can fill up before you start out on your travels. I prefer the Stanley Classic Trigger-Action Travel mug when traveling.

3. Stay Connected With A Portable Charger:

We all know the feeling of frantically searching for an outlet to charge our dying phones, only to find that every outlet in the airport is taken, or your phone dying and you don't have access to your maps. Investing in a quality portable charger ensures that you'll never have to worry about your phone running out of juice again. Plus, they're lightweight and compact enough to slip into your purse or backpack without taking up valuable real estate.

4. Stay Connected With A Universal Adapter:

There's nothing worse than arriving at your dream destination only to realize that you can't plug in any of your electronics because the sockets don't match. That's why a universal adapter is a lifesaver. With its interchangeable plugs, it ensures that you can charge all your gadgets no matter where in the world you are. Plus, it's compact and easy to pack, making it a travel essential for anyone who wants to stay connected while abroad.

5. Keep Your Hands Free With A Bandolier Phone Holder:

Struggling with a bulky purse or backpack can make traveling a hassle. A Bandolier phone holder is the perfect solution for hands-free traveling. This stylish accessory lets you keep your phone, credit cards, and cash within reach. Plus, it comes in a variety of colors and has add-ons like a mini wallet or AirPod case that clips on easily. I chose this wallet to add-on and it holds a lot, from my passport, ID, credit cards, to chapstick and more!
