When I travel my daily routine always comes with me. It might not be perfect and I may have to adapt due to a change in schedule but more core habits are still there.
Especially after a travel day, my body craves gentle movements, nourishing food and rest.
The morning after a travel day I do a light floor work out to loosen my body and sweat out the water retention I had from flying. This is always my favorite choice because it's gentle and always leaves me feeling refreshed versus wiped out.
Throughout that day I try my best to make nourishing food choices. I don't know about you, but my stomach never feels right after a long flight. My digestion is off and I'm usually pretty bloated so I try to replenish it with green juices, protein and fiber. My go to is a green juice first thing the morning (given I can find one. I try to grab one from the airport if possible so I have it for the morning). I find the boost of nutrients instantly makes me feel more energic and calms my angry system down. As the day goes on water is my best friend. Travelling always leaves me dehydrated no matter how much I drink on the flight so I boost my water intake to replenish.
Love ... AKA rest
These three things have been my three focuses for years. I strive to create balance in my life because most of the time, let's face it, life is CRAZY. Having basics to fall back on is what keeps me feeling like my best self and stops me from becoming nasty Brittany lol.
Traveling can be hard but not feeling my best can make it even harder and that’s why my routine is so important for me to stay consistent with. I always want to feel my best.
Whether you travel for work or pleasure, travelling is a stressful time for most people. Having a plan in place has been a game changer for me. I pack foods that make me feel good like: protein powder, oatmeal, bars and snacks that way I always have something on hand and I'm not stuck eating foods that will make me sick or upset my stomach. I try to figure out what days I can fit in a work out, even if its 20 minutes and I try to walk or move throughout the day. Putting in just a little bit of effort can make a BIG difference to your day while you're away from your routine so take 10 minutes and make a game plan. I promise you it's worth it!
