A new app is helping travelers avoid the grogginess that's become a staple of flying cross-country or overseas.
More and more apps are promising to help you catch some shut eye on the road.
Because of language barriers or differences in equipment or supplies, travel to other countries, especially developing nations, can bring an extra set of challenges in a health crisis.
Traveling without a smartphone seems almost unthinkable. Imagine: There was once a time when embarking on a road trip required a paper map, booking a hotel room meant you actually had to call the concierge, and word of mouth was pretty much all you had to rely on to find a great restaurant in a new city. Thankfully, in a day and age where smartphones are incorporated into most aspects of our lives, we don’t have to worry about doing any of this the old fashioned way. All of the tools we need to plan a memorable trip are literally in the palm of our hands.
If you’re trying to get in shape, especially while traveling, apps can be extremely helpful. When you’re on the road and not keeping a normal schedule, apps can provide workout routines, track your progress and, most of all, keep you accountable.

We know how stressful travel can be: Flight delays, lodging mishaps, language barriers can easily turn what was meant to be a relaxing trip into one big headache. But of course, there's an app for every travel annoyance, and equipping your smartphone before a big trip can make each step of your travels a whole lot less stressful.
As a super savvy traveler, you’ll probably have all the obvious travel apps littering your smartphone screen. But you might not be so well acquainted with a few of the healthier options out there. What I refer to as my essential apps for healthy travelers. Want to book a yoga class in a foreign city? There’s an app for that. Looking for vegan, GF noms nearby? Yep, there’s an app for that too. Or want to know the best strategies for avoiding jet lag once you arrive at your holiday destination? Yep, there’s even an app for that.
Jet lag can be one of the fastest killers of a great vacation. When you only have a few days in a new country, you don’t want to waste precious time sleeping. It isn’t always easy to recover when you’re jumping time zones. The fatigue, disorientation, and even nausea associated with jet lag can put a serious damper on your time away. Luckily, there’s an app for that. In fact, there’s more than one. Here are four apps to help you combat jet lag––or even skip it completely.
