Spring is approaching and that has us daydreaming about warmer weather and weekend getaways. If you’re looking for a post-winter refresh, take a look at these helpful tips to ensure you return to reality rejuvenated.
Planning Your Trip
Choose Your Accommodations Wisely
If you're hoping to stay active, look for hotels that are in walking distance from restaurants and sightseeing. It will also keep you stress-free knowing you're just steps away from everything you need.
You may also want to consider what kinds of restaurants are nearby, especially if you have any type of dietary restrictions. Let's be honest: one of the best parts of vacation is eating but it's also nice to have healthy options so you're not weighed down by big extravagant meals. Look for a good mix of cuisines so you have options.
Take Time Change into Consideration
If you're traveling abroad, give yourself some time to adjust to the time change. Jet lag can take around 2 days to overcome. It's equally important to plan the timing of your return home carefully. Choose a flight that will get you back on your home time zone immediately so you don't come back feeling exhausted. And, if you only have a few days to get away, consider somewhere within driving distance.
On Your Trip
Be sure to pack healthy snacks. Keep a few protein bars, fruit, or nuts in your bag at all times. This way when hunger strikes, you’re not left to do that mad dash to a convenience store to grab the first bag of chips you see. Caveman Foods' healthy snacks are perfect for travel because they're portable, delicious and healthy.
Bring water everywhere you go. Traveling can dehydrate you more than your body is used to, so if you can, stock your car, bag, or hotel room with ice-cold bottles of water.
The best mode of transportation is walking. If it’s within a mile, you should walk. It’s also the best way to explore a new city. If you're going on a more outdoorsy vacation, look for fun activities like hiking, surfing, and bike rides.
Strive for Balance
Vacation is all about relaxing, rejuvenating and, most importantly, having lots of fun. With that said, try to maintain a healthy balance between "splurging" and sticking to your normal routine. That way, you won't feel deprived nor will you feel like you over-indulged.
Happy vacation and safe travels!
