When you're on business travel, you might feel as if you're more susceptible to falling ill. If you're driving in a car rental, you are can take the necessary precautions to stay healthy this winter.

A crucial part of staying healthy is getting plenty of sleep. Skipping sleep can make your body more susceptible to catching a cold or virus. Get all of your errands done and book a rental car several days before your trip so you won't have anything to worry about the night before.

On your business trip, you will come in contact with a lot of people and things touched by other people, such as doorknobs and gas pumps. Make sure you wash your hands as often as possible with soap and warm water to keep germs at bay. Sometimes, you might not have access to a sink, so bring along a small bottle of hand sanitizer to keep you in car rental and use when you can.

Despite all you do to prepare for your trip, there may still be events that cause you anxiety. Try to stay cool, because stress weakens the immune system. Although unforeseen setbacks on your trip may be disappointing at the time, just remember it's nothing to compromise your health over.
