How To Stay Healthy While Travelling?

How To Stay Healthy While Travelling? - Hotel Edition

Exploring new places, indulging in a variety of cuisines, and becoming fully immersed in other cultures are all made possible by travel. But it also makes it harder to keep up a healthy lifestyle. Travellers frequently find it difficult to put their health first when they’re on the road, due to everything from interrupted workout routines to erratic eating regimens. We at Monarch Group of Hotels recognise the value of being well while travelling. Here, we offer you vital guidance and tips to help you keep well and stay motivated when staying at a hotel.

Pre-Travel Preparation

To guarantee a seamless transition into your hotel stay, take the following preventive measures before starting your journey:

  • Carry Nutritious Snacks:

    To stave off hunger pains in between meals, arm yourself with wholesome snacks such as protein bars, almonds, and seeds.

  • Be Hydrated:

    Bring a reusable water bottle with you on your travels to stay hydrated. Fatigue and a reduction in cognitive function can result from dehydration.

  • Look up hotel amenities:

    Explore the amenities provided by our hotel, including the spa centres, swimming pools, and gyms. Having an idea of what’s accessible will help you organise your exercise regimen.

 

Sustaining Healthy Food Practices

Keeping a healthy diet when travelling is one of the hardest things to do. Here are some tips for choosing a healthier lodging option:

  • Start the Day with a Nutritious Breakfast:

    Begin the day with a hearty breakfast that consists of a variety of proteins, fibres, and healthy fats. At our hotels, choose from dishes like yoghurt with granola, whole-grain toast with avocado, or porridge with fruit.

  • Select Wise Dining Choices:

    Give priority to foods that are high in veggies, healthy grains, and lean proteins whether dining out or getting room service. Instead of fried meals, try the baked or grilled options on our restaurant’s menu.

  • Exercise Portion Control:

    Although it can be tempting to overindulge in expensive meals, portion control can help you prevent overeating. To sample a variety of dishes without going overboard, choose smaller servings or split meals with a travelling companion.

  • Be Aware of Alcohol Consumption:

    Restrict alcohol consumption as it might cause dehydration and interfere with sleep cycles. Consider our mocktails or flavoured water as a cool substitute.

Embrace Physical Exercise

It can be difficult to keep up an exercise regimen when travelling, but it’s crucial for general health. Here are some ideas for beginning physical activity while staying at a hotel:

  • Make Use of Hotel Facilities:

    If you have time for a workout, make use of the hotel’s fitness centre or gym. Modern fitness centres and equipment are available to visitors at our hotels.

  • Explore Outdoor Activities:

    If the weather permits, explore outdoor pursuits like cycling, hiking, and strolling in the area surrounding the hotel. It’s a fantastic way to explore the sites and keep active.

  • Accept Bodyweight Workouts:

    Work out with bodyweight exercises in the comfort of your hotel room, such as planks, push-ups, squats, and lunges. Resistance bands are another tool you can use to increase the intensity.

 

Giving Rest and Sleep Priority

For general health and well-being, getting enough sleep is essential, especially when travelling. Here are some tips to help you have a good night’s sleep:

  • Relish a Calm Ambience:

    Create a sleep-friendly atmosphere by lowering the lights, modifying the temperature, and reducing outside noise. To drown out annoying noise, try employing white noise generators or earplugs.

  • Create a Routine for Bedtime:

    To tell your body it’s time to relax, establish a regular sleep ritual. Before going to bed, try some relaxing hobbies like reading, meditation, or a warm bath.

  • Set a screen time limit:

    Limit your time spent in front of displays, such as computers, tablets, and smartphones, at least one hour before going to bed. The natural sleep-wake cycle of your body may be disrupted by the blue light that these devices emit.

Practising Good Hygiene Habits

Keeping oneself clean while travelling is crucial to avoiding illness and remaining well. When staying at a hotel, remember to wash your hands.

  • Handwashing Frequently:

    Wash your hands frequently with soap and water, especially before meals and after utilising public restrooms.

  • Use Hand Sanitizer:

    If soap and water aren’t easily accessible, keep a travel-sized hand sanitiser on hand.

  • Clean High-Touch areas:

    Use disinfectant wipes to clean commonly touched areas in your hotel room, like light switches, doorknobs, and remote controls.

You can prioritise your health and well-being during your hotel stay by putting these tips into practice. We at Monarch Group of Hotels are dedicated to giving our visitors a secure and welcoming space where they can unwind, revitalise, and continue leading healthy lives while on the road. Good luck and keep yourself well!
