Between those long hours crammed into that small aircraft seat, jet lag, the challenge of adapting to a new environment and the overwhelming excitement to experience everything new all at once, one can hardly blame you if you fitness and health take a back seat while traveling. This is probably the reason why you see many of your friends and relatives, who are otherwise healthy and fitness addicted, get back from vacation slightly out of shape than you know them to be. If you don’t want to fall into that predictable trap, here are a few tips that can help you stay fit while traveling…
1. It’s fine to be overwhelmed to try out new cuisines and food but when you have the option, pick the lesser of the two evils. And, if you find yourselves faced with no other option but to gulp down greasy, oily or cheese-laden food that you’d normally never consider, stick to French-girl-style portion-control!
2. It’s okay to chill down for a couple of days, but if you’re traveling longer than that, you might consider checking out the hotel gym. Most hotels and inns feature some kind of gym or aerobics center and using them might be a good idea to burn off those extra calories.
3. Walk! As much as possible, try walking to your destination; not only will it be a great option to explore the new city, it will keep you healthy and fit; and as a bonus, you can save up on travel money! A win-win!
