Your Exercise Shoes
Get your daily exercise by walking and using the stairs. Many cities are designed to be pedestrian friendly, you’ll find it easy to walk 10 km a day. Even if you’re not walking much, it’s likely you’ll still be spending far more time on your feet than you do during a regular work week. Walk up the stairs instead of using the escalators or elevators.
If you don’t have access to a gym while you’re traveling, do variations of these exercises in your room.
Planks (various types of planks), pushups, squats (various types of squats), lunges, half bridge poses, triceps dips & step ups. And cardio: jumping jacks, mountain climber, and running on one spot
Alternatively, get guidance by using a YouTube fitness video and/or download a fitness app to help guide you through a workout. Even better, Skype or FaceTime a session with your personal trainer.
Eat Healthy Breakfasts
Make healthy choices if you are eating out for breakfast. For example, if you’re at Starbucks, select the spinach and feta breakfast wrap or a turkey bacon sandwich. For hassle-free meal, pack your own oatmeal that you can eat on your flight or from your hotel room. Avoid buffets and if you can, order from the a la Carte menu.
“Most flights don’t offer healthy snacks, so for the plane, pack fruits and vegetables. The easiest is a banana, which also offers much-needed hydration and potassium.

Keep your skin moisturized by applying right after you cleanse and before you apply your sunscreen.

Sleep plays an important role for your overall health and especially while you’re traveling.
