If you have to travel a lot for your job, chances are good that you are spending a great deal of time in hotel rooms and executive suites. This can take a toll on your health because you are going to be eating out a lot and are going to be sitting still for long periods of time on your laptop or on planes. This can make you gain weight and generally feel worse. Here are some tips for staying healthy while staying in executive suites on business trips.
1. Utilize the Size of Your Room
Make a habit of always walking around your room, even if it is just pacing from one wall to another, while you are talking to clients or business associates on the phone. You have a larger, executive suite. Make use of the space that you have and try to fully enjoy it. Making sure that you are walking during this type of task will help you increase the amount of time you spend moving overall and decrease the amount of time you spend sitting, which can have vastly negative effects on your health. Get a fitness tracker and set pacing goals each day. If you don't meet your pacing goal by a certain time each evening, commit to using your hotel's treadmill or other workout equipment to reach the step goal by the time you go to sleep.
2. Use the Restroom on the First Floor, Rather Than in Your Room
Make a game out of how long you can keep your bathroom looking pristine by always trying to use the restroom on the first floor of the hotel, rather than the one in your room. This will force you to keep getting up and moving around, which can help keep your blood circulating efficiently and restore oxygen to your muscles so that they burn more calories. Record how long you can go without touching your room's bathroom and try to beat that goal each time you stay in an executive suite.
3. Set an Alarm to Drink Water
Finally, hotels tend to have air that is drier than what you might be used to at home. This can cause you to dehydrate more quickly, which can make you not feel great and make you less productive. Deal with this problem by setting an alarm on your phone for you to get up and drink some water.
For more information, talk to the hotel where you are going to be staying to see what sort of healthy food and fitness options they have available to you.Share
