HOW TO STAY HEALTHY WHILE TRAVELING

how to stay healthy



Hey guys! Today I wanted to share a few of my tips on how to stay healthy while traveling. We just got back from our first little trip as a family, and I can attest that it is definitely more of a challenge traveling with a wee one than it was before! But also way more fun! ;) You just have to make sure to do things earlier in the day, because once bedtime rolls around you’re pretty much stuck in the hotel room. Which, I’m not complaining about, especially since our view of the city was so beautiful and we just kicked back and watched the lights and airplanes flying in. But I guess our days of late night galavanting and adventuring are over, at least for a little while. Anyway, I’m getting sidetracked. Let’s get into those healthy travel tips, shall we!

healthy snacks on the go

BRING SNACKS
Nuts, bars, fruit- anything to satisfy the munchies or fill you up without making you resort to greasy fast food. I love me some Lärabars- be sure to keep reading to the end of this post for your chance to win a box for yourself!

STAY HYDRATED
With the hustle and bustle of travel, it can be easy to forget even the most simply thing: To drink water! Always have a bottle of H2O with you and be sure to drink it- often! Coconut water is super hydrating, too. It’s definitely an acquired taste- I didn’t like it at first- but it’s grown on me!

hotel gym

USE THE HOTEL GYM
There is a gym in many hotels- take advantage of it!

WORK OUT IN YOUR ROOM
If there’s no gym at your hotel, or if you’re crunched for time, just set up a little station in your own room! I find yoga is the best for a hotel room workout, as you don’t need much room and don’t need any equipment! I just use a towel as a yoga mat. :)

WALK
Walk around this new place you’re visiting and explore! The best way to see a foreign place is to just get out and start walking! Chances are you’ll stumble upon some neat off-the-beaten-path places, and you’ll get a great workout in, to boot!

RESEARCH RESTAURANTS AHEAD OF TIME
You can read menus and reviews ahead of time and plan accordingly. Yay for Yelp.

pool

POOL
Swimming is one of the best workouts for the total body, plus it’s fun! It’s a great way to enjoy being healthy with the whole family, too!

TAKE THE STAIRS
So we stayed on the 17th floor, and we still took the stairs all the way down one day, just for fun and because we knew it would be a good workout. Plus, we didn’t have Sam (Zack’s parents were watching him) so that made it a little easier.

So there you go. My tips for how to stay healthy while traveling.
