Oh hey, going somewhere?

For business? For fun?

 

There are so many little things you can do to help improve your travel experience. National Car

 

Rental wants you to know how to “Go Like a Pro” and I’ve got a few healthy business travel tips

 

for you.


 

I’m pretty excited about today’s topic. Sure, I’d be more excited if I could really put all my own

 

tips and exercises to use on some exotic vacation, but hey, someday right? Maybe a flight to

 

Jamaica or Costa Rica or something? Oh, a girl can dream.

 

 

Okay, here’s the thing- traveling takes a toll on our bodies. If it’s for work or play, you still want to

 

be mindful and be a healthy traveler. I always feel like it’s funny how when you spend a day

 

traveling you feel so tired and drained. Even if you pretty much didn’t doing anything but sitting in

 

different means of transportation, you feel exhausted and stiff. That especially isn’t a good thing if

 

you’re traveling for business or a sporting event. (By the way, I can’t wait to travel for my next

 

destination race. I think I have a few on the schedule and can’t wait to share.)


 

When traveling, especially when flying, you are at risk for dehydration. Not to mention, sitting for

 

hours also places undue stress on muscles. That then leads to a sluggish circulation that causes

 

blood to pool in your legs and feet and increases the chance of forming blood clots. That is just not

 

good.

 

 

Luckily, there are some things you can do to prevent all these things and to just help you feel better.

 

It’s so important to keep your health in mind when you’re traveling. Don’t let long travel days be an

 

excuse to not take care of yourself. You want to be healthy in-transit so once you get to you’re

 

destination you’ll be ready for whatever comes your way.

 

 

 

First of all, you want to make sure to stay hydrated and move around when you can.

 

Second, try these simple exercises while in transit to stretch and encourage blood flow.

You really don’t need a lot of space. Most of these simple moves can be done on the go and in any

 

means of transportation (in the car, on a plane, in a train or walking). They’ll not only help keep you

 

calm, refreshed and comfortable when traveling, but they’ll also help keep your spine flexible and

 

keep the blood moving a bit.

 

 

 

Here are a couple of my favorites.

 


Try these to keep you refreshed while on the road.

 

 

Here’s an easy list of the moves you can use.



In Transit Moves You Can Use

 

 

Really, just a few simple moves can go a long way.

    I sit all day for work, and sit on a bus 35-40 minutes each way to commute, but luckily have a 1 mile walk to/from work, so that gives me a little movement. On my last trans-atlantic flight, as well as my flight from Virginia to California, my knees were in SO much pain, I almost ripped off my seatbelt to get up, even though the pilot clearly said stay in your seats and even the flight attendants were strapped in because there was so much turbulence. I ended up not being able to walk properly for about 3 days. My knees were in so much pain and so stiff and swollen. Even my ankles and feet were swollen, it was so horrible!

    I have to know…….how do you burn everything without it being too mushy/soft? I really like stuff burnt but mine always gets to watery and soft…..do tell! I am jealous, ha.

    Thanks for sharing! I travel via plane every Monday-Thursday for work … usually going from a 7am-ish plane ride straight to my desk in the office and working straight through 11pm-ish, then repeat Tuesday-Thursday (thankfully Fridays are more normal hours). I sit WAY too much! Complaint over (sorry!), but the point is – I’ll try to incorporate some of these! Much appreciated!
