If you have a trip coming up and you are getting paranoid about your health. Breathe in.
We are here to help you. Breathe out.
Here’s a few ideas about how you can enjoy yourself and stay healthy and fit at the same time.
1.A Big Healthy Breakfast
This one is a given. The breakfast is the most important meal of the day and you can not afford to miss out on it, specially when you’re travelling. A full and healthy first meal of the day keeps your metabolism in check and fuels you up with energy for the rest of the day.
2. Drink Tons Of Water To Stay Fit While Traveling
This is something you should practice not just while travelling. Yes. Drink lots and lots of water guys. It keeps you full and hydrated which is very important when you are not in your natural surroundings and your body reacts to everything in a different way. Make sure you drink clean, drinkable water. Most places offer sealed water bottles, if not, try keeping a water bottle with you and keep getting it refilled.
3. Walk Instead Of Riding
If you’re not getting late and you can walk, why must you not? We seem to depend too much on our rides when we clearly don’t need to. So the next time you’re travelling and you need to get from point A to point B, walk. Walk to it, explore your surroundings, take it all in, smell the earth, help a stranger, experience endless possibilities, live a little.
4. Have At Least One Yogurt Per Day
Cut to the chase, yogurt regulates your digestive system and keeps you from having diarrhea and/or bloating. A yogurt a day is affordable, cheap and will prove miraculous for your tummy. An equally good, more easily available substitute of ‘yogurt’ is dahi. It serves the same purpose and tastes the same, if not better.
5. A Granola Or Protein Bar Between Meals
This is the best way to cater to random munchies and stay healthy at the same time. Treat yourself with granola or protein bars in between meals. Always try to stay stacked with them and carry them wherever you go. If not, they are easily available in convenience stores at most places. This is your go to snack, every time. It keeps you full and keeps your metabolism in check.
So, that’s about it. A few things you need to keep in mind if you want to stay fit during your travels. Also, don’t get too caught up into managing your diet (leave that to our app) and don’t forget to have fun! And remember to stack up your phone/ipod/whatever with all your favourite music and give yourself a much deserved break. Good luck. Get going. Adios!
