Many of you folks out there are involved in some kind of traveling.  Some light, some heavy duty.

1. Walk for a while

No matter where you are, it’s always possible to squeeze in at least 30 minutes on foot. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park away from the front door. Walk indoors as well as outdoors.

2. Eat right

When eating out order what you want. Less salt, less sugar, less fat.  Pack healthy snacks to take with you. Request substitutes, for instance salad instead of fries when eating out.

3. Be Flexible

If where you are has no fitness center, check to see if there is some kind of offering or promotion from a nearby gym. A simple workout indoors can be enough to get your blood pumping.

4. Bring Equipment

Jump ropes and resistance bands are versatile, portable and affordable–and ideal for all fitness levels. Or take a swim, bike or even dance.

5. Rest Well

Being away from home can be exciting, stressful or both. Lack of sleep can cause fatigue, headaches, irritability. Be sure to set time to recharge your batteries. And have a great time.
