We all love to let the temptation of delicious food take over our sense of cautiousness with health sometimes, don’t we? Just match it up with some time that you need to burn’em off later and you’ll be good. A little caution about the health benefits of what you eat does no harm either! #JustSaying

4. Away from home doesn’t mean away from the routines

The first health trouble  with traveling comes in when you let the change in your surrounding change your routines as well. So, be it your diet, sleep hours, or even the little daytime naps, if you make sure to stick to those, I am almost positive you’ll have the happiest and fittest trip ever.

5. Turn hangry (hungry + angry) on its head

Whenever you are running out of snacks you stashed in your travel bag, load up on energy bars. Besides opting for this easy choice, also look out for your local food items- you’ll be surprised at how food can vary even within a few miles and how delightful to your taste buds! Be on the watch for the calorie count and make sure to burn up all the extra you stash.

6. How about a little sightseeing on the bike?

Cycling is a remarkable way of assuring energy revitalization in all your body. You can always rent one in every new place you go and maybe even double the treat of wandering by pairing it with your loved ones. So, go green, paddle a little, and you’ll fall in love with the places in a whole new way.

7. Enjoy the milieu with long walks

Walking is a great way to keep yourself healthy. When you get away from your regular surroundings to a different place, walking lets you soak in the beauty a little deeper, helps you stay healthy, and saves you a bit of money as well.

8. When you get out there, don’t forget to engage in the most adventurous activities the place has to offer.

Be it hiking, surfing, or a bit of local sports- make the most of it all! And you thought traveling would burn those hours and wads you spent at the gym, hah!

9. Make the most of those little delays. Sounds celebratory, doesn’t it?

When you travel, flights and train delays are a common source of irritation. But you can turn them on the head. The next time you figure out your ride’s running late, use the time to run a bit on the flight of stairs near you or flex your tired muscles a little. Munch on something fresh and healthy and you’d not be doing your lovely form any harm!

10. Stay hydrated – stay happy!

Keep on emptying it and refilling it with the sweetness every now and then, and I bet you’ll stay your beautiful and healthy self.

Happy journey! :)

Shruti Fatehpuria

I am a misfit software engineer who left her work in the corporate world to pursue the insatiable quest to write. A freelance worker by the day, I choose to dream with eyes open wide. I have conversations with myself where I talk of the possibilities that life can hold. Too many wishes made on empty starless nights ensure that there are various dreams yet to be lived. I am working my way as I am on a quest to find myself. The greatest journeys are indeed the ones that lie within. I am yet to live my story because right now, the book is full of too many apostrophes and too many commas. The words are jumbled until the right one fits the puzzle. I don't believe in perfection because too many times, it is imperfection which paints the perfect story. I am verbose and I aim at living life in full swing until a speed breaker curbs the tantalizing pace with which I wish to conquer the dreams that would otherwise be too big for the not-so-tiny shoes I wear. Blessed with a lot of chubby fat, I love going the extra mile to conquer my extra dreams with an extra advice after all, we all love a little extra. A die-hard shopaholic, you can often find me laughing on serious stuff inappropriately at wrong times (unintentionally).
