Airline travel tips to keep you healthy and happy

February 16,2017

Your boss says…..We are sending you to Asia for 5 days. The adventure sounds great – traveling on the company dime and experiencing a different culture all while doing what you love. But traveling across time zones can be torture. Plus you are only there for five days and it takes a day to get there! How can you be comfortable, upbeat and perform your job without being a zombie? There are so many variables that contribute to a good international trip versus a bad trip. From the airlines – delays and weather – to the passengers – cold and flu season – to jet lag – it can all be a big mess. Especially when it comes to traveling on long overseas flights, being in a metal tube for 20 hours is no picnic.

Airline travel can affect your daily health and performance. But there are a few things you can do to keep you healthy in the air and make you more comfortable when you land. Here are the top 5 travel tips from Uplift Ventures LLC.

 

  1. Prepare before you leave – have a health kit ready and packed including your own ear buds, a blanket, some snacks (lots of snacks actually if you are traveling internationally as you never know when a delay can derail you) vitamin c if you feel any cold symptoms coming on as that can help protect you in the air and ibuprofen for any aches and pains.
  2. Add the eye mask to your list of must haves – An eye shade can help you relax on the plane and block out the light allowing you to get a bit of shut eye and relax your senses. Don’t take the nylon ones that the airline gives you as they are paper thin and may not even help. Instead invest in a cushy pair with padding to block out the light.
  3. Saline solution is your friend – before, during and after the flight keep using a saline solution. Sinuses tend to dry out on an airplane and saline will keep your sinus hydrated and protect from germs in the air.
  4. Get up and move – During the flight make sure you move around or do some simple exercises in your seat to get those legs moving – even lifting your legs up and down and flexing your ankles can help. When you arrive at your destination get that blood flowing by taking a walk when you arrive and take another walk after you eat lunch or dinner as it will help with digestion (stomach issues are a major source of irritation for travelers) Walking can also allow for a better night’s sleep too. A hot bath can help to sooth the body and relax your body for sleep, especially after a long day or travel and especially before you lie down for the night when you arrive to your destination.
  5. Don’t immediately go to bed in your new destination especially if it is day time – embrace the natural light as it helps to reprogram your body to your new destination. To reprogram your body and reset your internal clock to the time zone you are in now try the Uplift app. The Uplift app ends jet lag naturally and guides travelers though key pressure points to unlock the internal body clock allowing travelers to reset it providing a more enjoyable trip and minimizing the effects of long distance travel.

 

These are just a few suggestions to make your time in the air more enjoyable.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE                                                                                                                               

Uplift Mobile App Starts Measuring Users Annual Jet Lag!

DOVER, MA (July 1, 2019) – Uplift Ventures announced today its consumer phone app will start measuring a user’s cumulative, annual Jet Lag by keeping track of the time zones crossed or “Zonage”.  

“For the first time, we will provide global travelers with insight and data they can share on the number of time zones they cross each year,” said Ted Finn, Co-Founder and & CEO of Uplift Ventures, LLC.

“Now that Uplift has developed a protocol to address and neutralize Jet Lag, we need to develop a vocabulary to discuss the problem and the metric to measure it”, Ted continued.  “With the latest update to our mobile app, Uplift will calculate our users cumulative, annual Jet Lag by measuring the number of time zones the user crosses. We refer to this as your Zonage and everyone should know their Zonage.”  NASA research tells us that for each time zone crossed it can take a traveler as long as 12 hours to one full day for their body to fully adjust. In his past career scaling a global shoe company, Ted would cross at least 150 time zones every year and saw the value in this new feature. The entire Uplift team is proud of this new feature as it empowers travelers everywhere with meaningful insight to track and share other layers of your travel experience.  In a recent correspondence to shareholders, CFO Bill Davlin says, “My only wish was that the Uplift Mobile App existed during the last 20 years ago, I could have spared myself countless weeks of bravely working through painful days and sleepless nights. Everyone should know their Zonage”.

 

Are you traveling without Jet Lag yet? What is your Zonage?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

UPLIFT VENTURES JOINS CCB PRO CYCLING

Dover, MA January 16, 2020 - Uplift Ventures has been selected by CCB as their wellness & performance partner as they officially launch their new 2020 season.  The club which was started on the North Shore of Boston in 1979 as a small elite race program has grown in membership and international notoriety over the past 40 years. Despite - or maybe because of - the mixed nature of the club, over the years the club has gained tremendous standing in the region and has been home to many professional bike racers during its formative years, from Tim Johnson, Gavin Mannion, and Tyler Hamilton.

 

“We are excited to partner with Uplift this season since we have riders who travel across multiple time zones to compete, ”says Tim Mitchell, Principle of CCB Foundation. To date, the CCB club’s elite team has received invitations to, and raced in world-class races in Belgium, Ireland, France, UK, Ireland, and China as well as all across the USA. In addition, the club's storied pink, blue and white jersey is well known - not just in the Northeast US, but across the country.

 

“As an avid cyclist myself, I see tremendous value in this new partnership as these amazing athletes no longer have to endure the disruption Jet Lag can have on their sleep, performance, and recovery during their travels to compete in these long grueling races. In this beautiful sport where one second can be the difference between making the podium or not, Uplift can truly optimize the athlete’s performance in the most natural way,” says Uplift CEO & Co-founder Ted Finn.
