Comments Off on Be Health Conscious While on a Business Trip


Taking a business trip means a change in your daily routine. Your diet, exercise and regular medication will be disturbed. Therefore, it is essential to keep your body and mind healthy. Book your hotel room in advance so that you can select a room away from constantly traveled areas of the hotel, elevators and ice machines, as they create a noisy atmosphere.

Always take out time for exercise that makes you feel fit and more productive at work. Pamper yourself with the hotel’s spa or massage amenities, so that you feel refreshed. Outside restaurant food is the most important thing to avoid. So, try eating moderately and always go for less oily foods.

Eat proper food throughout the day including fruits and vegetables, so that you don’t end up eating fast food heavily on long duration flights.

Make sure that the water you are drinking is pure. It is advisable to go for bottled water to avoid different types of illnesses in foreign countries. Try avoiding icy water and drink as much water as you can so your water level in your body stays at the required level and you won’t feel dehydrated.

Keep yourself away from alcohol, as it could result in excess passage of urine. In addition, excess intake of alcohol can cause hangovers, which is a not good thing while you are on a business trip.

Avoid close proximity with colleagues who are sick, as he/she can pass the infections to you. Take measures to prevent yourself from jet lag by getting extra sleep. Try sleeping on board, avoid caffeine and make yourself comfortable with adjustable seat features. However, if you start to feel sick, it is good to stay in your room and take proper medications.
