July has arrived along with summer vacations, but that doesn't have to mean a vacation from your healthy habits. Make your getaway truly terrific by following these practical tips.
Scope out the neighborhood
Maybe you book accommodations near a yoga studio or local gym you would like to try out.
When you are out and about, plan ahead and take snacks with you. This will keep more money in your pocket, and you will make healthier choices.
Eat before the airport
Enjoy a big meal before you arrive at the airport. This way you can avoid the fast food temptation.
Don't skip exercise
Allow yourself to rest; however, try to stay physically active even when on vacation. Body weight exercises, can be done anywhere and opt for an active outing like a walking tour or a trail run.
Visit food markets
You can't beat fresh fruits and vegetables. This is also a great way to support local business.
Embrace the outdoors
Whether you are having a stay-cation or heading to a tropical retreat, make sure to take a long walk and enjoy the outdoors.
Be safe in the sun
Always apply sunscreen, and don't forget to re-apply throughout the day.
Check the temperature
Exercising in high heat and humidity intensifies how hard the body needs to work to maintain normal function. Hydrate well and do shorter workouts at lower intensities to stay safe.
