Over the last two decades, I have spent a ton of time living out of a suitcase, running through airports, and grabbing a quick (all too often unhealthy) bite along the way. I know many of you have had similar experiences. Whether you are on a plane every week or travel less often, we all can benefit from taking better care of ourselves on the road.
I recently asked one of my former students, Vanderbilt University grad, and food and wellness blogger, Sloane Chmara (pictured above), to give me some guidance. Her thoughts were so helpful, that I thought I would share them with my LinkedIn friends.
Traveling for leisure or for work can complicate our healthy habits and wellness routines for a myriad of reasons – our sleep schedule is different, planes are germy, we don’t have our normal “stuff” quite as accessible, and it feels like our daily routine has gone out the window.
However, if you are traveling for work regularly, you can’t afford to miss out on feeling like your best self every time you travel. Likewise, you can’t afford to not show up on the job as your best, most healthy self.
