Vacation is No Excuse to Take a Break from Your Health

 

You planned your vacation with Rubinsohn Travel and have spent the month’s prior to your trip eating healthy and exercising to look your best. There is no reason for your vacation to be the reason you give up on those healthy habits you have become accustomed to. So forget the excuse “I’m on vacation,” and use these healthy tips to maintain your best health and still have fun while on vacation!

 

Skip the Airport Food

In order to stay healthy throughout your entire vacation, you must start off on the right foot. Do not let those scrumptious looking restaurants lure you in after your stressful wait in line at security. Rather than a greasy, calorie filled combo meal, plan ahead and pack your snacks! Fruits, vegetables and nuts are quick to pack and easy to eat before your flight.

Rethink the stop at the airport coffee shop! If you need a pick-me-up, tea and water are good substitutes for sugary coffee drinks and will also keep you hydrated during your flight.

Find a Balance

Rubinsohn Travel encourages you to try new and exciting foods during your vacation. But a key part of maintaining your health during your trip is to balance the foods you eat. Let yourself try that delicious pasta dish with the thick creamy sauce, but skip the dessert. The next few days order a salad or a light dish with proteins, greens and other nutrients.

Depending on where you planned your vacation with Rubinsohn Travel, many locations have grocery stores within a reasonable distance to your hotel or lodging. If you have the option, try making some of your meals rather than eating out for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can save on calories (and cash) if you plan your own meals.

Walk Here, Walk There, Walk Everywhere

Believe it or not, you can exercise on vacation without even thinking about it! Skip the rental car or public transportation and walk to your destinations. Walking also allows you to explore more places in your vacation destination. Instead of taking an escalator or elevator… take the stairs. You will be amazed at the workout you can get just from walking up ten flights of stairs. You can even ask Rubinsohn Travel to help you book a hotel that offers accommodations including gyms and even work out classes!

Keep the Water Flowing

Your vacation is the distraction you need from real life, but do not let it distract you from the #1 thing your body needs… water! It is easy to forget to stay hydrated while you are busy traveling, sight seeing, and adjusting to new places. Helpful ways to remember to get enough H20 are to set alerts on your phone once every hour to drink water, carry a reusable water bottle wherever you go, and to drink at least two glasses of water with every meal. If you do not drink enough water, you can throw all of your other healthy habits out that plane window!

Not Just About Your Physical Health

In order to maintain your overall health, your mental health needs to be a priority. Rubinsohn Travel wants your vacation to be stress free and all about you. Your vacation should be a time of relaxation and happiness. Take time before your trip to catch up on work and answer any calls or emails, not during. Allow yourself to get enough sleep and remember to take time for you. You may want to maximize every moment of your trip, but you must get enough rest to be energized and ready to have the most fun on your vacation!
