Stay active while travelling

Life is meant for spectacular adventures. Let your feet wander, your eyes marvel, and your soul ignite. – Slvcwriter

Who doesn’t love vacations? It’s the best time to unwind and relax. To turn off from your everyday life and truly enjoy. But it also becomes a time when we slack off on our health. Getting some physical activity can also help relieve stress and make you happier. So, staying active on a vacation is really a win-win for your body and mind.

Sharing a few simple tips on how to stay active while travelling, which is both doable and, quite frankly, fun.

1. Chasing the sun

Go outside in the morning and breathe in some fresh air. It could be a run, walk, or soaking in the sun. Nothing like a run around a lake or walk in the garden. Starting your morning active will keep you refreshed and energised throughout the day.

2. Local Active Adventure

Do a local active adventure. This could range from hiking, trekking, cycling or swimming. Don’t forget to follow it up with a good stretch sess. Highly recommend doing bed stretches before you sleep to relax the muscles. So this happened in Bhutan. We made it to the tiger’s nest and back. Had the best time. We’ve made a promise to ourselves to try at least one active adventurous thing wherever we travel. It’s a fun way to stay fit and make memories that will last a lifetime. Trust us, you won’t regret this one.

3. Yoga in the wild

Outdoor yoga anyone? If you haven’t tried this, you definitely should. And we’re not talking about an intense yoga session. Just grab your mat, get out of your room and out on the garden and do some basic stretches. The stillness, birds chirping, maybe spotting a butterfly or two, serene environment, just you, your mat and the beauty around. We’re really trying to sell this, can you tell?

4. Exploring!

Now, something we all do on vacations – EXPLORE! Make it a point to walk as much as you can to nearby locations. Walk to a tourist spot you want to check out. Walk to a restaurant you want to try. None of this sounds motivating enough? Walk to a local street for shopping (even window shopping included) can truly be a great cardio workout. No kidding!

 

This does not mean we won’t indulge in the local food and take some time to slow down and truly enjoy the place. Just small activities here and there like walking more often, doing some bed stretches before sleeping, cycling around, and snacking in between meals so we don’t make reckless food choices. Also eating the occasional salad wouldn’t hurt. They can be delicious too. It’s all about balance!
