Can I travel and get fit?
Traveling is ubiquitous nowadays. We travel for work, holiday, for friends, weddings, anniversaries, or simply just to get away for some respite. Traveling at this expense is to personal health and loss of regimen. Here’s how I stay fit no matter where I am.
One of my favourite things to do when I travel is to eat. Maybe you are like me too. I love to try all the local dishes and new flavours even if I am not hungry. I look at it as a once in a lifetime opportunity and I live it up to the max. The crazy thing is I don’t feel guilty when I eat, and I don’t gain an inch. How I do this is simply: to perpetually live in work life cohesion.
I don’t stop and go, nor do I look for balance. Balance means that I would need to strive for one thing or the other, so I look at my wellness as a whole, as a sphere that keeps feeding back into each other. What feeds my mind, feeds my body, my lifestyle and so on. It’s an incredible way to look at life!
One of the best ways to keep things flowing is to simply bring my workouts with me! I created FitSphere because of my lifestyle, to solve the real difficulties I find living a life on the road, in flux, and to motivate myself for the reasons I know in my heart to be true. I carry my Spheres, my shoes, and workout clothes with me so I have no excuse not to be active. If I don’t I will start to stress and my mind and body will get spiral into a dark space. I know this from my own experiences with dieting and have armed myself with knowledge about weight gain and how it affects your mind and body.
The fact is that all our thoughts, desires and actions are controlled by hormones and neural circuits. The body is an organic whole, and has many reactions to changes in calories, carbohydrates, fats, proteins, metabolism, exercise, and hormones. When on holiday, even if we would consume more calories, our body will not metabolically adapt to suddenly become obese. Even if a pound or two is gained it would readjust to our natural resting weight if we get back to our usual healthy routine.
So, if you don’t want to be constantly chasing the ups and downs, don’t lose your routine to begin with! I shared all my favourite quick exercises in FitSphere To Go to help you too to live in work life cohesion. I hope you love it!
