a lot? Eat on the run and figure you'll get back
to normal routine when you get back from yet
another business trip? Here are a couple of tips
that can make your business or pleasure trips a
little easier on your body.
First and foremost - drink plenty of water!
Philip L. Goglia, founder of Performance Fitness
Concepts in Santa Monica suggests in NY Times
that you should start drinking water the day
before your travel starts. "Both stress and
airplane cabins worsen dehydration, which can
cause dry eyes and headaches."
Don't skip a healthy breakfast; starting your
day with an empty tummy doesn't get your energy
kicking. "Most of my clients could care
less about taking care of their health while
travelling, but when they realise they are
compromising their capability to do business,
they sit up and pay attention", says
nutritionist, Toni Bloom.
Travel Fitness & Feel Better, Perform
Better on the Road by Rebecca Johnson and
Bill Tulin include some of the following travel
tips in their book:
Order yourself a daytime arrival, especially on
long flights. Once you get, there drag yourself
outside and do something active in the daylight,
this way you can recover from yet lag much
quicker. While on the plane, you should walk the
length of the plane every hour or so to keep
your blood circulating as well as your back
happy. Another idea is to book an emergency exit
where you can enjoy a roomier seat, unless you
travel first or business class.
Getting sleep while away from home can also be a
problem for some. A couple of ideas can be to
avoid watching TV or checking you email before
you go to bed as well as hiding the hotel clock.
When you realise you'll only get a couple of
hours sleep before the next day starts many
won't get any sleep at all especially when you
open your eyes every five minutes or so to check
if it's soon time to get up.
I guess a good conclusion can be; listen to your
body and take good care of yourself!
