The Top 12 Healthy Travel Tips

A woman walking quickly with her suitcase(BlackDoctor.org) — We know you’re trying to relax and have a good time, but unfortunately, being on vacation is not an excuse to eat crazy, avoid being active and in general be a potential health disaster.

There are some fun and simple ways to enjoy your vacation…without sacrificing your health.

1. Be a picky eater. Airline and roadside-diner food can be a healthy diet destroyer. Also, abandon the too-popular myth that being away from home gives you the right to be on vacation from being healthy.

2. Bring your workout with you. If where you’re staying doesn’t have a gym (or if you simply prefer to do your own thing), pack some resistance bands, a jump rope, even a workout DVD. If necessary, write down a few key moves you can do in your room, like a few yoga/Pilates poses or your own quick circuit training routine, such as a series of jumping jacks, mountain climbers, squats, crunches, etc.
