Stay Healthy With These Tips Whilst Travelling
Travelling is a brilliant way to spend our life, but travelling too much can actually take a toll on ones health as it is difficult to exercise and eat properly. I have put together some tips to help make your travels as healthy as possible
Get your 40 winks!
Getting plenty of sleep is the most important thing to do when you are travelling. The impact of walking all day, carrying luggage and crossing time zones should not be underestimated. Listen to your body and sleep more than you feel you need to. Your body will thank you for it.
You should never try and visit every site in the space of just a few hours. Plan you visits so you can take a relaxing stroll around the sites, stay longer if you have too.
Stretch and Exercise
After sleep, exercise is probably the most important thing you can do. Start every day with meditation and stretching exercises, maybe a yoga routine. You will start your day refreshed and ready to take on the world. Whilst out and about it is easy to continue to stretch the back and neck throughout the day during quiet moments like waiting for a bus. Some holidays provide opportunities to visit a resort and have a professional massage and pamper day. If this chance arrives then take it! The health benefits of a professional sports massage on the body should not be underestimated.
Don’t stop breathing.
As part of your morning routine whilst away you should take at least ten minutes to sit and breath (meditate) this is proven to help calm the body, lower blood pressure and improve mood.
Walk, and walk some more
Often whilst away we take buses and taxis to get around. Walking though is a great way to take in the sites of the area you are visiting whilst keeping your fitness up. You never know, you may even find a little nugget that you may have missed if you got the bus.
