13 Things to Pack for Sleep, Health,

and Happiness on Your Next Trip

Being in transit is cramped, crowded, and long even when it’s short. It’s the anti-wellness. But with the right planning, you can find calm—in the middle seat of row 44. You could even sleep. Or at least you’re much more likely to if you’ve got a pack of Knock Me Out and the rest of these gems in your carry-on.

    Out

    Each chew has L-tryptophan and vitamin B6 to support the body’s own production of melatonin, our major sleep hormone. Equally important: The flavor is chocolate mint. Start with one before bed and we’ll talk in the morning.

    DRIP

    Chances are you’re dehydrated right now. For a travel companion, you can’t do better than a self-cleaning water bottle, which is exactly as futuristic and efficient as it sounds. The Larq design includes a digital UV-C LED light that can help keep water clean with the tap of a button. If your adventures tend to take you off the beaten path, having this gadget will definitely come in handy.

    ROLL OUT

    If you tend to beat yourself up for not working out while you’re on vacation—we won’t tell you to chill because no one likes being told to chill—consider this mini foam roller. It can stop you from completely falling apart. And if you know that contorting yourself into a road trip pretzel has consequences: also consider this mini foam roller. Do it once, and you’ll do it after you unpack every time.

    Bar
    None

    A mix of protein, fat, fiber, and skin-nourishing hydrolyzed marine collagen, these bars are the bomb. They’re not meal replacements, but they can certainly tide you over. If you’ve got a gnarly travel itinerary, stash a few in your bag.

    The miscellaneous trinkets of hotel and airplanes make it easier than we’d like to slack on our commitment to avoiding single-use plastic. Keeping a bamboo toothbrush on hand means you can forgo the plastic ones along the way.
