Staying in shape while on vacation is not an easy task—it takes will and determination. While taking a few days or even a week often from working out or eating healthily won’t derail your health and fitness goals, there are ways to make your vacation fit in with your lifestyle. Here are four ways to stay in shape on your next holiday.
Pack What You Need
Don’t forget to pack your sneakers, workout clothes, and any exercise gear you can fit in your suitcase. Also throw in some healthy snacks like almonds or protein bars so you can be prepared for your next workout session.
Wake Up Early
Sure, it’s nice to sleep in while on vacation, but if you wake up early you can get your workout over with in the morning so you’ll have the rest of the day to take in the city or relax by the pool.
Be Creative With Your Workouts
Going to the gym during a vacation isn’t all that exciting, but working out at a park or on the beach can be. Also, don’t discount water sports or adventure activities as ways to get exercise in.
Everything in Moderation
Enjoy the local cuisine in moderation and try new foods you wouldn’t normally have the opportunity to eat. Just don’t go overboard with it.
