How to stay fit while travelling
Staying fit while abroad may not be top of your priority list. However, feeling healthy and happy in your own skin always enhances any travel experience!
Whether it’s jetting off on your next big adventure or heading on a business trip, the change in schedule can throw off anyone’s fitness routine. Keeping fit while traveling can be as easy as just opening your eyes to the options. Wherever you go in the world there is always some physical activity you can do. These tips on how to stay fit while travelling, will help you to feel healthy and energized throughout your journey.
Try your best to walk as much as you can when travelling. Whether you are in a metropolitan city or a tropical island there is usually somewhere safe you can walk. Walking is a great way to burn off a few calories, to keep your metabolism moving and to relax the mind. It’s a workout that does not feel like exercise as it allows you to also explore your new location.
Keep your mind, body and spirit finely tuned with some yoga. Yoga practice helps circulation problems, improves the quality of your sleep and, of course, helps travellers to stay fit when abroad. Practice your own yoga routine in the morning or see if there’s a local class available on your travels. Practicing yoga while abroad will truly enrich your travel experience and is a great way to stay in shape.
If your destination is near the sea or pool, there are many things you can do in the water to stay fit. In warm climates, there is nothing better than cooling down with a swim. Swimming laps is always a fantastic full body workout. However, if this isn’t for you why not get in the sea and have some fun slashing about or jumping over waves.
Take in the amazing scenery and fresh air of your destination with a hike. Hiking is one of the best ways to stay fit when travelling. It is a great cardio exercise and a good way to connect with nature. Make sure you have the right footwear and that you pick up the pace to get that heart rate up! It is also important to take a bottle of water with you to keep hydrated at all times.
