#194 How To Stay Healthy While Travelling

As you guys probably know, I’m doing lots of travelling at the moment. And while it is awesome, it is really hard to stay healthy and keep fit. I don’t have a schedule or routine, weird travel times make it hard to exercise sometimes and there is an endless amount of “junk” food available. So here is how I’m trying to stay healthy and fit with all the travel!

Book Flights Around Your Schedule

I try to book all flights in the afternoon and get direct flights if possible. I think it worth paying a bit extra for this. If you can fly in the afternoon, it gives you the morning to do a workout and also to start your day off right with a healthy breakfast. If I fly at weird time, I’m all messed up and eat at weird times and end up overeating. I know this may not be viable for everyone, but trust me, if you get the opportunity, it is well worth it!

Bring Healthy Snacks With You

This is mostly for travel days. Sometimes the plane food / snacks aren’t that great. Sometimes you just have to eat it and deal with it, but I always try to keep snacks with me. Healthy muesli bars, fruit and nuts are my favourites.

Maintain Some Sort Of Schedule

This is hard for me when my location is changing all the time. But at every place I go to, I try to have a schedule. This usually involves working out in the morning sometime, and starting with a healthy breakfast. It’s easier to fit in workouts and stick to eating healthy if it’s a routine. I have previously done a blog post on my favourite travel workouts so check this out too.

Be Realistic About Your Food Intake

It would be nice to say that I’m not going to eat any junk food, but I know that’s not really going to happen. I don’t say anything is off limits. If I want junk food, I’ll eat it. But I try to limit it to once every couple of days and keep the rest of my meals as healthy as I can. I know sometimes it’s hard to find healthy options, but just do the best that you can!

Walk Everywhere!

You all know I’m a big fan of walking for slimming down legs, but it really is such a great exercise. One of the best things about travelling is the opportunity to walk and explore different places – I love it! Some days I’m walking 10-20kms, other days not so much. But I try to do as much as I can.

Overall, it’s up to you. You have the opportunity to make healthy decisions, you just need to be disciplined enough to make them! xx
