How to Stay in Shape While on the Road

Whether you are traveling for pleasure, world domination, epic questing, or business, it can be hard to stay on track with your workout plan and diet regimen. Not having access to your usual gym, prepared foods and personal trainer can certainly be overwhelming and lead to a serious “fall-off.” We are all creatures of habit and it is easy to adhere to a simple routine when you are in one place. Traveling should be enjoyed and although splurges and embracing  the local culture is vital, you also want to ensure you don’t wreck all the hard work you have already put in! So, how can you maintain your  healthy eating, regular exercising and consistent sleep patterns   while on the road? Here are some tips that may help you:
1. Start your day with healthy breakfast that includes a hearty dose of protein. It doesn’t matter where you are, healthy options can always be found. Hotels and restaurants are realizing the significance of leading a healthy lifestyle and will usually have a “lighter fare” menu, or an “al a carte” section with simple and healthy options! Some easily-found items will be: eggs, whole wheat bread, whole wheat english muffins, avocado, turkey bacon, turkey sausage, egg white omelet, greek yogurt parfait etc. 

2. Traveling and eating foods you are unaccustomed to can cause digestive upset, so try to have a probiotic regularly. this can be a kombucha probiotic drink, kefir, pills, or yogurt. 
3. Ensure you are getting enough water. This will be huge as dehydration can lead to some pretty serious symptoms that can escalate quickly. Migraines and lethargy are very common amongst travelers struggling to stay hydrated! Try to stray from sugary, caffeine-heavy or carbonated drinks as these are typically full of ingredients that will only further dehydrate the body. 

4. Stairs offer a good workout if you cannot get to a gym. Bodyweight workouts can be just as great (if not even better) than those with weights! If the stairs are limited to 4-5 stories, make sure you make the right choice. 

5. Tea is a miraculous drink, not only does it provide energy for doing fun activities throughout your travels, but it is also full of antioxidants that can help boost your immune system. There is usually caffeine, which is fine as long as you do not over do it! Many teas will also aid in digestion and keep everything moving smoothly while you are away from home!
