Do you want to stay active and exercise during your holiday?
The first thing that springs to mind when you plan your holiday, at home or away is to relax. Time for a well deserved break. Short or long. One question that affects us all is. How do I stay lean and trim when I am on holiday?
This doesn’t mean that you should set off looking for a gym when away, rather than enjoying the sights with family. But you can incorporate activies that are realistic if you plan ahead. Rising earlier, packing your trainers and some motivating music all help you maintain focus to not place exercise on the back burner for your holiday break.

1| Ready, steady, jet off!
Now you are enroute to your dream escape. Put your phone down. Give social media a break. Take time to enjoy the present moment. Track your fitness goals on an app or your watch. Now is the time to be creative.
2|Be moderate rather than restrictive in what you eat
Choose and plan healthy eating options. Allow yourself small treats fairly. This is a lifestyle. And holidays shouldn’t change that. Learn to say no. Not give in. Simply because tempting food is there. Reward yourself for being good. And keep your hydration levels up.
3| Don’t ditch exercise, start every morning with a plan
Find an outdoor space or park. Choose something simple. Like exercise on a mat outlooking the ocean or tranquil park. Or maybe try a new excursion. Set a flexible routine. From leisurely activities such as swimming. Long picturesque walks. To hiking trails. Add pace with steady running. If you are more adventurous, ventures could include roller blading down the promenade. Cycling through the landscape and country.
Workout tunes have the potential to get you motivated. Plus you will be surprised that once your energy kicks in, you could keep going. And become tempted to sneak in more fun activities that could roll into a workout as well.
