Do you workout on vacation?
When I have clients who have busy lives and find it hard to fit time in for themselves on a regular work week, I like to suggest that they focus on movement when they go on vacation. I almost always get the side eye for this suggestion.
Most don’t like to think about workouts during a trip that is supposed to be relaxing and fun. But why not? Why can’t we utilize this schedule break to take the time, the much needed time, to workout when we are traveling?
We don’t need a gym and fancy equipment. So if you don’t have access to those, it’s perfectly fine. Utilize your body weight for any resistance training and for cardio go for a run, a swim, maybe even a bike ride, or a hike! You can also plan activities that will allow you to move but don't seem like you are exercising.
The goal isn’t to beat yourself up, it’s just about moving your body. Creating and maintaining a healthy habit.
How to plan movement into your vacation so you can still enjoy your trip:
Be flexible. You are on vacation. If workouts don’t go according to plan don’t let it get you down. Just find ways to keep your body in motion. Have fun, happy & safe travels!
