January is often the month when everyone becomes focused on health. One of my biggest challanges has been learning healthier way to travels. If your on the road a few times a month for work or pleasure check out my tips below to ensure you clothes still fit by the time you return.
1. BYOWB (Bring you own water Bottle)
Drinking water en route to your destination will keep you away from fancy coffees, mixed drinks, and soda both in the airport and on the plane. There are so many cute styles that will fit in your purse. Just remember to keep it emty until you pass through security.
2. Cut it In Half
One of the best parts about travel is trying new food. To balance health and travel try cutting your meals in half. This means Clam Chowder in Boston, Ciopinno in San Fransisco, and Shrimp Au Gratin with a view of the gulf in Mobile.
3. Two Drink Limit per Week
This is epecially true for frequent business travlers. Instead of grabbing a generic beer or wine at every dinner, try and limit your drinks to something extra special. Maybe this is a fancy meal to pair it with or discovering a local brewery/winery. Find yourself in upstate New York, go find a winery with ice wine. Maybe your in New York City and going to have a damn good Manhatten in Manhatten!
4. Grocery Shop
If time allows, grocery shopping for snacks and small meals will keep you full without calorie rich food of resturants. My gotos usually include precut veggies fruit and pre-made salads lunches. This helps to keep me from feeling extra bloated on the road.
Heres to happy healthy travels this year!
