How To Stay Healthy While On Vacation

It’s the start of vacation season with spring break going on now and summer travel is just around the corner, and a lot of people struggle with staying healthy on vacation. You worked hard to maintain your healthy ways in the days leading up to your trip, but then have trouble keeping them in mind once you are actually there. It’s so tempting to literally eat your way through your adventures, but you will most likely feel bad later, so I have come up with a few tips for avoiding that groggy, full feeling that you have experienced while on vacation (myself included), and they aren’t actually that difficult to stick to! Below are my tips for staying healthy on your next vacation:


If you are going somewhere warm, hydration is even more important than usual. When you are outside in the sun, be sure to keep water with you and drink it constantly. Traveling is known for dehydrating you, so stock up in your bag, hotel room or car.

Load Up on Fruits & Veggies

It doesn’t matter if its chips or blueberries you are eating as a snack, try ditching the junk food and swap it for fruit and veggies. Fruit and vegetables fill you up more than sugary or carb loaded foods do, so you will be more satisfied and less groggy (we have all been there). It’s also fun to explore farmers markets and fresh produce around you – load up on these!

Stay Active

Take advantage of beautiful weather and go for a run, bike ride or walk rather than driving everywhere. It’s also a lot more fun to walk or bike to different places whether it be a restaurant for lunch or some shops for a little retail therapy. A lot of places offer walking tours of the local area so explore these too! Combine sight-seeing and a low-impact workout and you won’t even realize how much exercise you are getting.

 A Treat a Day

The rule to try to stick to is “a treat a day.” To avoid overindulging on a ton of junk food, instead look forward to having one dessert or sugary treat a day such as chocolate chip pancakes or an ice cream cone. That way, you are not really restricting yourself and can still enjoy the yummy food around you!

Don’t Over-Restrict Yourself

At the end of the day, don’t stress yourself out about what you are eating or how much exercise you are getting. You are on vacation after all and it’s important to relax! Strive to do these things mentioned above, but don’t worry yourself if you didn’t sneak in a run or had two desserts in a day. It’s all about moderation!
