Fit for the journey
Excitement for the holidays can admittedly make the car journey there a little sweeter. But it doesn't do much to improve your physical fitness at the wheel. The long motorways offer little in the way of distraction, and that is wearying. Just like the constantly unchanging seating position. On top of that, there are stressful situations, such as mile-long traffic jams and reckless overtaking manoeuvres from other drivers. To stop you reaching your limits too soon and turning the journey and the holiday into a catastrophe, you should be well-prepared for every long drive.
Above all, you should pay attention to what you eat before your journey and to the provisions you pack. To ensure you get through the hundreds of miles to the Alps or to the Mediterranean coast safe and well, three points are especially important: a diet rich in vitamins and minerals, regular breaks to stretch your legs and drinking enough fresh water. Build up your strength before the journey with a light breakfast: muesli, dried fruits and whole-grain bread will fill you up, but are not too heavy and won't tire you out. For the journey, pieces of fruit and vegetables, cereal bars and wholemeal pastries work well. Most importantly, you mustn't forget to pack enough fresh water. Water invigorates you and provides energy. Fresh, pure water in particular can be a real energy-booster and improves concentration. Nutritionists recommend allowing for one to one and a half litres of drinking water per person for longer car journeys. Sweeten your journey by relying on the energy of pure water.
With a SecoSan stick you can keep your water fresh and pure and protect it from germ formation. Fill bottles with the desired amount of water at home and store your energy-boosters on the passenger seat. Regular sips during the drive will help you to concentrate and stay fit over the long distances. But don't forget: regular breaks are also crucial. At a service station you can enjoy your SecoSan water in complete peace whilst taking a short walk, preparing yourself in the best possible way for the rest of the journey. And you will arrive at your destination safe and relaxed. Holiday time!
