Staying Healthy and Fit Before Travelling
Healthy living starts now! When you’re at home, it’s important to start a healthy lifestyle and maintain it while travelling. This will allow your body time to understand what’s happening and adjust accordingly when arriving at a new destination or changing environments like altitude! Here are a few tips:
You’ll most likely be on your feet all day, so get a head start by trying to clock in a minimum of 10,000 steps each day. HUAWEI’s latest watch, the GT Runner, can help you track your progress. Once you’re used to the extra activity, upping your goal to 15,000 steps might not seem so daunting.
Enjoy a healthy diet
This one is a no-brainer. Eating healthy foods on a regular basis will give you the energy for sightseeing. Your boosted immune system will help you avoid getting sick while travelling. Try to meal prep once a week so you don’t end up eating junk food out of desperation.
Catch up on sleep and try meditation
Getting enough sleep is important for both your physical and mental health. If you’re not used to meditating, there are plenty of apps that can help guide you through it. Even just a few minutes of mindful breathing, which you can do with HUAWEI’s GT Runner watch, can help reduce stress.
Maintain your stress levels to a minimum
This is the one time you don’t want to procrastinate. Start packing early and make lists to keep yourself organized. Taking some time for yourself before your trip will help ensure that you start your vacation feeling relaxed and ready to go. Don’t forget your out-of-office message!
Staying Healthy and Fit While Travelling
Staying active while you travel is a great way to see new sights, save money on transportation, and stay healthy.
When you’re on the road, there’s no excuse not to get moving!
Here are a few tips for staying fit while you travel:
Keep up with your healthy eating habits
Pack healthy, nutritious snacks and try to cook as much as possible. Hostels have kitchens! You can cook your own food and make friends with other backpackers in the process. How about that? This will also save you money and help you stay energized while you’re out exploring the world.
Don’t forget to drink water
Stay hydrated by drinking lots of water, and *try* to cut down on booze (it is vacation time, so go ahead and order that passion fruit Mojitos!) Seriously, you’ll feel better overall, and you’ll avoid those annoying hangovers that can ruin a travel day. With HUAWEI’s GT Runner watch, you can even set up a “water intake” alert to remind you to drink water.
Continue walking to get around
Whenever possible, walk! Not only is it good exercise, but you’ll get to see parts of your travel destination that you would have missed if you were on public transport or in an Uber. Plus, it’s budget-friendly! You can also join a free walking tour of the city you’re visiting and explore it like never before. There’s no better way to find your inner adventurous spirit than by exploring new places with an expert guide.
Explore your surrounding by running
The best way to explore a new city is by running it! Not only will you see some amazing sights, but also get your sweat on. Keep pushing yourself with a custom plan that you can create using HUAWEI’s running plan.
Staying Healthy and Fit After Travelling
Still buzzing from the joys of travel? It can be tempting to just relax and not worry about working out. Here are a few tips to help you stay fit after your next trip:
Fight jet lag by spending time outdoors
The natural light will help reset your body clock. Plus, you’ll get some Vitamin D, which can help improve your mood and energy levels. A quick walk in the park or some simple stretching exercises will help get your blood flowing again.
Jump back into your workout routine
If you’ve been slacking on your fitness goals, now is the time to get back on track. Set a goal and create a plan to help you stay motivated. With HUAWEI’s GT Runner watch, you can track your progress and see how far you’ve come.
Add new travel recipes to your meal planning
You don’t have to give up all the delicious foods you tried while travelling. Try incorporating some of your new favourites into your regular meal rotation. This will help you stay excited about cooking at home and give you a little taste of your travels.
Continue tracking your health
Keep track of your steps, heart rate, and sleep patterns with HUAWEI’s GT Runner watch. This will help you identify any unhealthy patterns and make changes to help improve your overall health. Plus, it’s always nice to see your progress over time.
So there you have it – everything you need to know about staying fit before, during, and after your travels. Just remember to relax and enjoy yourself, and don’t stress out if you can’t stick to every single tip. After all, vacation is supposed to be fun!
