Though I enjoy seeing and hearing about people who travel to different places, make new experiences. I personally never was a great fan of travelling to different places myself.
Since childhood I remember my parents always look forward to the one opportunity may be yearly to travel domestic or international.
I was hugely excited during the preparations. Although we were told to travel light , I always packed outfits , separate for morning , evening, nights as one should never be clicked twice in the same outfit.
As years passed my struggle for traveling increased to the limit that I resisted myself to travel even to see my family and friends.
My prime concerned became my health and fitness. It’s okay ! to disconnect from your fitness goals once in a while but falling out of taking care of my body completely never sinked with me. I always tried to find some way or the other to keep myself closer to the health routine as the idea of detoxification was a big no for me.
I started with just 3 simple steps in order to stay healthy even while traveling.
1) Hydration – One of the most underrated and most important way to stay healthy and fit is to have enough water, throughout the day and always 30 minutes prior to any meal if you are planning to go out for food. This soothes the hunger pangs and keeps you away from those bread sticks & buns placed on the table.
2) Stretch – Even though you don’t want to hit the gym of your hotel everyday when you are at holidays but a little stretching never hurts. It calms your muscles, releases any tightness in your muscles , regulates blood flow,keeps you more active throughout the day.
All you need to keep your body healthy and ready for riding, hiking and adventuring is a little bit of space, forethought and this quick stretching routine that you can do in your hotel room, in the airport or even on the plane.
Having your own clean and comfortable space to sit or lay down will encourage you to do these few exercises on the go.
3) Recharge – Yes it is true traveling to one place may be a lifetime opportunity and one should make use of it to the most. But it is also a gentle break from our daily busy, running around life. So as much as it is needed to go around and venture out every new places it is equally important to just switch off yourself from the hustle and bustle. It can be anything starting from a day just doing spa, late mornings, breakfast on bed , swimming or may just not being on social media at all.
I kept these three things in mind while and when I travel and it is getting each time easier for and people like me who gets fear pangs thinking about moving from one place to another.
