It's hard to leave treasured items and loved ones, like your dog, behind while traveling, but many beloved belongings simply don't fit in even the most expertly packed carry-on. One particularly tough healthy-living staple to tote along for wanderlusting adventures is your clutch, albeit super-bulky foam roller. But, as a healthy-living warrior, you know better than to leave the recovery tool behind only to collect dust in the corner of your apartment. And luckily, there's a way for you to avoid sore muscles on the road without sacrificing too much prime space in your luggage.

Shameless star Emmy Rossum recently shared a genius hack on her Instagram Story that helps her take care of her body, no matter where she's jet-setting off to visit. As part of the actress's self-care routine, she's enlisted the help of a (super-cute) mini 12-inch foam roller ($25) so she can "roll out on the road." Just like the full-size roller you have at home, this travel-friendly version can help improve blood circulation, decrease inflammation, and combat any flight-induced stress and soreness—all while taking up minimal square footage.

This little travel companion is sure to become the new BFF to your muscles while you're globe-trotting. Now, if only there were a way to sneak your furry friend along for the ride, too....

Make sure to pack a mini foam roller for your next vacay.
