Getting into healthy habits isn’t always easy, especially if you have a fast-paced lifestyle. Once you do get them going, it can be really frustrating trying to stick with them when you’re travelling. Here are some tips to help you keep on track.
Keep Up Your Diet
This can be one of the most difficult areas to stick with, especially if you’re travelling for fun. You want to go out and splurge, whether that means delicious desserts, fabulous gourmet meals, or yummy wine. Depending on your destination, it can be especially difficult if you have requirements such as eating vegan. A big help is getting an app that will help you to find the vegan restaurants closest to you, like Happy Cow. The Veganagogo Vegan Travel app helps you say dietary related questions in fifty different languages, allowing you to make your needs known (and met). And with the Vegan Amino app, you can find like-minded new friends all over the world, that can clue you into the best local vegan choices.
Keep Up the Exercise
As hard as an exercise routine can be to get into, it can be depressingly easy to get out of. If you’re travelling, one thing that can help is to find out where you can do your normal routine, or something close to it, while on the road. You’ll want to find this out before you head out of town, so you can get right into the flow. Try to stick to the same hours as much as possible as well. It’s also a good idea to download some exercise routines, just in case you can’t get to a gym when you need to. Bring a resistance band or another prop that will fit easily into a suitcase and can help you get a better in-room workout. Having an online fitness coach is tremendously helpful if you frequently travel.
Keep Healthy Snacks With You
In some locations, access to snacks that are healthy and fit your preferred diet isn’t always easy, especially if you’re gluten-free or vegan. It’s worthwhile to throw some vegan protein bars or other easy to carry and grab as you go snacks that won’t leave you feeling guilty later. Dried nuts and fruits are also easily portable for quick energy. Check out where the local health stores are in case you run out.
Don’t wait until you get to your destination before you start doing your homework. Visit Happy Cow before you leave, bring along some plant-based vegan protein powder, vegan protein bars, and plot out your best choices for restaurants that are close to where you’re staying. The same goes for checking where the local fitness clubs or yoga studios are. Download some yoga classes that you can do in your room or an app that acts as a trainer when you can’t be with yours.
Stay Healthy While Travelling on Your Next Trip
There are plenty of ways you can stay fit and keep the lifestyle you want while you’re on the road, but it may take a bit of advanced preparation. Some of these tips are things you can even put into practice at home, like making sure you always have healthy snacks and a workout routine you can do in the house on hand.
