For many of us, our hair is an integral part of our identity. Imagine a drummer who was a member of hair bands in his youth facing rapid hair loss in his early 50’s. That was Solopreneur Hour Host’s Michael O’Neals’ story before he flew all the way to Turkey to have a hair transplant.

Travel tip #2
It’s all about downloading what you need. Make sure you download your podcast episodes (or videos, or ebooks) so you have something to listen to, read or watch while you travel. Alli uses the Overcast App.
If you need to work, download the web pages you need to reference. Google drive can be accessed offline so you can work on your documents without needing wifi.
Travel tip #3
When you sit on the plane, make sure you wipe the seat, window, and tray table. You really don’t want to pick up germs before you’re on holiday. You can also bring a natural antibacterial spray and essential oils to keep your hands clean.
Travel tip #4
Make sure you stay hydrated while you travel. Whitney uses a LifeStraw - it screws onto any water bottle and will filter your water. Do not drink coffee or tea while you’re travelling, caffeine will dehydrate you.
Travel tip #5
To combat jet lag, CBD is your friend. It will help you sleep on the plane. Take plenty of turmeric and ginger before you travel. Their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties will knock out any germs, help regulate your body and keep it healthy on your travels. Pack some probiotics. This will help if you’re going to countries where the food is not what you’re used to eating.
Travel tip #6
Change your sleep routine to avoid jet lag. The Jet Lag Rooster app will create a schedule for you to tell you when to go to bed, when to get sunlight, and more, so that you can avoid jet lag. You can also get blue light glasses, which block the light from the plane and help your body adjust to different time zones (Swanwick do stylish ones!).
Travel tip #7
Always bring a pashmina with you - you can use it as a blanket and a pillow. It makes the perfect neck support if you wrap it around your water bottle.
Travel tip #8
Bring accessories to make the flight more comfortable. Our favorite eye mask is the Dream Sleeper, it’s super comfortable. We also love Sleep Buds - headphones you can sleep with! The fleece ones feel amazing.
Travel tip #9
Pack healthy foods for the plane! For example, fruit & nut bars (choose those without added sugar), nuts, or fruit (like oranges or apples - but beware, you’ll have to eat them before you get off the plane because some states have strict restrictions on what fruit can be brought in), cucumber and hummus, little packets of olives, or even vegan cheese and crackers.
You can also tell the airplane your dietary preferences ahead of time.
Travel tip #10
One of the best tips if you’re travelling internationally: sign up for Global Entry and avoid the long queues.
We did a little wine tasting during our panel (we absolutely love Scout & Cellar’s wine selection)… and speaking of wine tasting, we’ll be doing some of that on our next Italian Vegan Getaway! This is an intimate women-only retreat. You’ll feel like one of the locals since Ravello is a town Leslie has been going to for years. No tourist busses, no huge groups - just 12 like-minded women. There are just a couple of spots left so if you’ve yet to join us…. What are you waiting for? Go to www.foodhealsnation.com/italy for all the details, or check out Leslie’s Instagram stories. Or email Alli with any questions at [email protected].
