Being healthy and fit can help you feel better inside and out, but maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a busy work schedule is not always easy. Many people start each New Year telling themselves that this is going to be the year they are going to change their life and start living healthier. If you are on a health kick and want to get into shape, but have a hard time sticking to your fitness goals because you have to travel so often for work, use the tips in the guide that follows to learn how to adapt to your ever-changing environment to get the body you want and deserve.
Make the Most of the Stairwell
All hotels that have multiple floors have a stairwell somewhere in the building. Take the time to find the stairwell and count all of the stairs. Lace up your tennis shoes and choose a number of stairs you want to travel within a specific amount of time. Set a timer on your phone or simply make note of the time that you start your stair climb. Try to better yourself everyday by either doing more stairs within a certain period of time or doing the same amount of stairs every day in less time.
Use What You Have
When you go into most hotel rooms, there is often a chair, a bed, and a mirror somewhere in the room. Set the chair in front of the mirror and sit on it. Place your hands around the very front of the chair and slide your bottom off of the chair with your legs straight out in front of you. Allow your bottom to dip down toward the floor slightly by bending your arms and then lift yourself back up again by straightening your arms. Repeat this process many times to build arm and back strength.
Take Advantage of the Breakfast Bar
Many hotels offer you a free visit to their breakfast bar with every stay. There are often packets of oatmeal, fresh fruit, and low-fat milk at the bars. Eat breakfast while you are at the bar and take a few snacks with you to enjoy later in the day. Many hotels have microwaves in the room that you can use to heat up the oatmeal for a snack or another meal when you get hungry so that you do not stop by a local fast food restaurant for a quick, unhealthy meal.
If you use these tips, your next hotel stay, at a location like Mt. Laurel La Quinta Inn, will be healthier and help you stay on track with your fitness goals. You have to have the willpower and fortitude to let go of excuses and take control of your health to be the best you that you can be.
