Whenever you are traveling, take the equipment to train. Choose to always have an active life, with physical exercise.

2. Eat healthy meals whenever possible

Look for healthy restaurants and eat a well-balanced diet. Have at least one healthy meal a day.

During breaks, choose healthy snacks and drink plenty of water.

3. Combine work with leisure time

Do you already know the expression “bleisure”? It combines business travel with tourism. Many companies allow employees to extend the trip to the weekend, for example. You can see this opportunity and take the chance to explore the destination better. If a family member or friend joins, even better!

If you have time after work, go out to explore the city and do some tourism. You can also learn and relax from your professional work.
