Summertime is the best time. Not only are the days long, but it is the best time to get away. Here are our 3 best practices for staying fit on vacation:
Don’t use the excuse “I am on vacation” to throw out all of your hard work. Yes it is totally fine to indulge in things you wouldn’t normally eat, but don’t go overboard or make yourself sick just because you’re on vacation. Not only does this make you feel bad, your body might not respond to it as positively as you think. Just have a great balance and you’ll be fine!
Find ways to move your body. Use the stairs or gym in your hotel. Find a nearby gym or studio and do a drop in class. Commit to playing that sand volleyball game for at least 30 minutes. Swim in the ocean, there are literally so many things you can do while on vacation that will still allow you to have fun!
Commit to unplugging from your phone. Fitness is not just about the physical aspect but the mental one too. There are so many things that go on in our daily lives while at home that sometimes we cannot justify unplugging from them. Do yourself a mental favor and leave your phone alone. Go outside and read a book, spend time with your loved ones without documenting every second, play games and actually be present to what others say. The way to make this truly possible is to commit to doing it as a whole. Put all the phones in one room so you can hold each other accountable. It doesn’t have to be for the whole vacation, just pick at least one night to do it. You will feel 1000 times lighter at the end of it. I guarantee.
