It’s not easy to travel and staying in shape. People are normally traveling in their vacations and we all know that vacations are the only time when working people get relief for a few days. They enjoy their trip by over-indulging, treating yourself, and then coming home with the feeling about much heavier than before. You should keep in mind that you must avoid street foods. However, I personally think vacation times are the best opportunity to pamper and prioritize your health with full of enjoyment. Try to take full advantage of it with few pressures and commitments and get fit, so you feel refreshed and relaxed after coming back home. But don’t make your traveling as a fitness regime ruiner by working out while traveling. Here I am going to share some easy tips to keep your body fit and healthy while you’re on travel.
Work out a regime while traveling:
It’s so obvious that nobody wants to spoil their leisure by working out while traveling for hours and hours. I also don’t recommend it. Not heavy exercises but when you’re on a go out you should do a regular minimum time exercises like fast walking, squats, deadlifts, lunges, bench press and the like.
If you do not like to work out while traveling then it’s ok, there are another plenty of other ways to be fit. Just be more active and moving more and more. I know it sounds so simple, and trust me, yes, it is but effective too. As it is a new place for you, go and explore things there, walking on the beach for a long or hike up a hill to get an excellent view. Instead of just sitting or resting in your hotel room, involve yourself in such plenty of activities like- yoga, surfing, swimming, beach volleyball, etc. Do these activities every day for half an hour and one more important thing, use stairs of your hotel instead of using an elevator. So, these are the things which can keep you stay fit.
Make a healthy food list:
Don’t eat everything you like. Make clear lists of road trip food, what to eat and what not to. Because diet plan and nutrition play a major role in your body. Many people are not conscious of this and eating lots of unhealthy foods while traveling just to give a try to different local foods. Don’t drink so much cocktail or any other drinks. If you’re a seafood lover then it’s ok but you should count how much calories you take in a single day.
Take advantage of the hotel’s kitchen:
Most of the hotels give you complimentary breakfast-, juice, fresh fruits, coffee or tea, cookies, etc. But you can take advantage of the hotel’s kitchen and prepare your own foods, especially breakfast. It will take less time as everything was arranged before. Do not eat any packed foods. Remember, you should always try to eat fresh and healthy so that you can feel free.
Be aware of your dining out:
If you are a real foodie and you love to try lots of local dishes, go ahead. But don’t overindulge, order a dish and share halves of it with your partner or friend. So that you are able to taste many dishes, and there is no chance of wastage of your ordered foods or even your valuable pennies. Don’t be hesitate to ask the hotel cooks how they will prepare your ordered dishes, you can request them for using less oil.
Stay hydrated all day:
No matter what you should always keep your body hydrated. Drink water as much as you can, but at least 3-4 liters in a whole day. Drinking water is even more important when you are going out in hot climates. You can also take fruit juices or any other beverages. Always carry a big bottle of drink water wherever you go and drink it every hour.
Chilling out with your buddies:
Above all, don’t forget to chill out with your dear ones, while you are going on a trip. And don’t be stress yourself as you’re unable to do exercise as much as you’d planned. It doesn’t really matter if you treat yourself stress-free there. So enjoy your trip as it is once in a lifetime and have more and more fun.
So, by following a few little things you can be fit even without working out while traveling. Follow basic things to be fit and motivated while you are on an outing for a few days, make a clear idea about road trip food, which to take and which not.
