How to Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle when Traveling
There is probably nothing more frustrating and annoying than being on vacation, letting loose and then having to come back home and return to a structured and healthy lifestyle. The problem that many people have is that they use their vacation as an excuse to let loose, eat whatever they want and avoid exercise. As a healthy individual, you need to make your healthy lifestyle a priority no matter where you happen to be. Whether you're traveling for business or taking the kids to a local amusement park, you should consider staying up on your healthy routine as much as possible.
This isn't to say that you shouldn't have fun while on vacation or avoid certain restaurants because you're on a diet, but making healthier choices can have a real impact on how you feel when you need to return home. Yoga can definitely help out when it comes to maintaining a healthy lifestyle even if you're traveling by yourself or with family members. Yoga can be done virtually anywhere and is a relaxing exercise that helps sore backs and muscles that might be tense due to driving or airline flying.
The great thing about doing yoga when you're on vacation is that many different venues offer it to you. Many hotel rooms now offer yoga rooms and even classes that you can attend and not pay a penny for because it was included in the amount you paid for the room. This requires some due diligence before booking a hotel in finding the hotel that has the amenities that fit your personality (such as yoga classes or fitness studios for me). The best way to do this is to check reviews for particular areas and hotels. On my last trip I used Gogobot to search reviews for a given area and see which hotels offered the best yoga classes. A lot of airports are also now offering zen rooms to their fliers so that you can go in, relax and do some light yoga before or after a flight. Nothing will help you to feel better and more relaxed than doing a little bit of yoga every single day while you are on vacation.
If you start the day off by doing yoga, you might even find that the benefits you gain follow you throughout the rest of the day. You will be less likely to binge eat or grab unhealthy snacks because your morning yoga routine is helping to keep you on track. Vacations are a time to relax and enjoy yourself, but there is no enjoyment in then coming home and realizing that you've gained weight and are having problems adjusting back into your normal and healthy routine. Doing yoga on vacation is a great way to avoid issues when your vacation finally comes to an end.
