Have you ever wondered if you are staying in a clean hotel room when you travel? Even the nicest hotel room can make you sick – a study from one online travel site found that 20 percent of female travelers come down with some kind of illness when staying at a hotel. Whether you are traveling for work, for the holidays, or taking a vacation minimize your risk of catching something by following these guidelines:
Go smoke free. Request a smoke-free room when you make your reservation or check in. Even better? Request to be on a smoke-free floor.
Hide the bed cover. Mites and other pests can hide in bedspreads. Remove the cover and stash it in a far corner of your room.
Pack disinfectant wipes. Wipe down the telephone and TV remote before using them to avoid harmful germs and bacteria.
Avoid drinking glasses. Use wrapped plastic cups and water bottles for your drinking water instead of glassware that has been used previously – which may still retain germs.
Eat healthy. Bring your own snacks like dried fruits, nuts, and granola bars. Eating light, healthy snacks can help you avoid the temptation to overeat, which can result in weight gain or indigestion.
Get enough sleep. Pack eyeshades and, if necessary, use a white noise generator to ensure you get sound sleep under any circumstances.
Stay active. Spend some time in the exercise room, take a walk around the neighborhood, or just move around your hotel to keep your blood flowing.
