People are constantly on the move. They travel for work, pleasure or various other reasons. This hectic life sometimes takes a toll on individual health, mostly causes people to gain weight. Its very easy to lose control of your health, especially with a busy travel schedule. But even while travelling if you have time to eat then you have time to eat right. You can stay fit even on the busiest schedule. We tell you how to keep it simple and healthy while you are travelling -
1. Watch the Food
Make sure to avoid the carbonated beverages while you are travelling. Eat light and something healthy. Always try to opt for fruits wherever possible. For snacks, go for nuts and seeds, since they are easy to carry and provide you with the quick pick-me-up you need during those long meeting hours.
2. Keep Moving, Use Local Amenities
You obviously cannot carry your home gym around the world with you. Many hotels will offer training facilities such as weight rooms, cardio equipment or good old fashioned pools. Use them! A 30 minutes training session will do wonders for you on your travel, helping you keep fit.
3. Try and Maintain Proper Sleep
When landing in a new country, try and adapt to the local time as quickly as possible. Don’t sleep during the day and keep in the light to tell your brain it’s not night yet. On the first days of your journey, go to sleep early in the evening to help program the new rhythm in your system. Proper sleep helps you function better and help keep your waistline in.
4. Breathe Properly
Take a daily moment to do those simple breathing exercises. Most of us don’t know how to breathe properly anymore and deep belly breathing will make wonders! This will help you keep calm during your meetings, reduce stress and lower blood pressure and heart rate, contributing to keeping you fit.
After the breathing, do a five minutes stretching regimen. This will counter all those hours you were cramped in the plane and help alleviate muscular and skeletal pains. It will also prepare your body for all those long hours of sitting that may lie ahead of you.
