5 Effortless Tips to Stay Fit When Traveling for Work

Whether you are running a successful Pittsburgh transportation service, or are employed by an international corporation, you probably have to always stay active, on the go, and busy. This is why you have to find various ways of incorporating healthy elements into your day without taking away precious time and resources. Don’t worry, it’s easier than you think. Here’s what you should always keep in mind to stay fit while traveling.

  1. Try not to stress out

Stress is something we all have in common nowadays. Nonetheless, it is not something to be taken lightly. Stress can influence everything, from energy levels to your capacity to think and focus. However, the main concern when it comes to your fitness level, is the level of cortisol in your system. Stress produces cortisol, which has a huge effect on the insulin your body produces and therefore, your blood sugar levels as well. Although not a severe problem unless chronically high, it’s always a good idea to prevent rather than treat an issue.

You should always plan ways to eliminate stress during any trip you take. Whether you prefer music, games, mantras, or breathing exercises, plan ahead and keep your anxiety as low as possible.

  1. Be mindful of the food you eat

The food you eat represents 80% of your body’s fitness. We are aware that traveling doesn’t often leave room for well-planned choices. Nonetheless, there are some things to keep in mind. You might want to choose something plant-based, low in fat and rich in nutrients. Stay away from dressings and excessive portion sizes. You should also always know what you’re eating, this way it’s easier to keep track of everything. If you have to go out to eat, ask about the ingredients. However, you might want to try buying your own groceries when staying in a hotel.

  1. Drink water in abundance

It’s so easy to become dehydrated on a business trip. Even though everyone knows the benefits of drinking water regularly, it may be hard to do on a busy schedule. Some solutions to this problem could be to use your phone to set reminders every hour or so, depending on the environment you are in. You might also want to avoid alcoholic beverages or drinks that contain sugar. Tea is a great option too, but water is absolutely vital.

  1. Balance your sleep schedule

A destabilized sleeping schedule is possibly the toughest element to handle, as you’re traveling. Still, it is possible to be successful. Try various things to discover what works best for you. Try listening to music, using an eye mask, mediation and breathing techniques, avoiding caffeinated beverages, or anything else you can think of to get at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night. This will give you enough energy to be active, which is essential for staying fit and healthy.

  1. Engage your muscles

Keeping your muscles flexed is like a mini workout for your entire body. It sounds simple enough, and that’s because it is. Keeping your core muscles contracted and your shoulders back, will give you great posture. You will instantly look taller, slimmer, and more confident. Just contract your abdominal muscles, push your chest forward and pull your shoulders back. Even though it might seem silly to you at first, all you have to do it look in the mirror to see the way you look. After that, just do it throughout your day, whenever you remember. Not only does it burn calories, it also give your self-confidence a great boost.

From our clients:

Regency always does an outstanding job! You never fail to meet the high expectations that we have for transporting our customers, or individuals from our Corporate Office.
I feel very secure to use Regency Shuttle. You make my travel less stressful and I can relax knowing I will get to my destination safely.
Regency is my go to company for car service. I have been working with Stacey for a number of years, and I couldn't ask for a better service partner to work with. I even had to call in very early on a Sunday to cancel a reservation, and she was on it, and had it cancelled. I felt bad calling as early as I did, but she was a true professional. I recommend Regency to anyone that I know that needs car service. I'm grateful that you are always on time, and have very courteous, and friendly drivers. Your office staff is always great to work with too.
Service and staff have always been exceptional. Highly recommend your business to anyone who asks.
Your company has changed my life. Getting to and from the airport is wonderful now. You've taken the hassle out of travel. I also have used your service to pick up my children when they're arriving late at night at the airport. I'm completely secure in the fact that your drivers will check for delayed flights and will be there to meet them no matter the time. We've also used your company to book drivers in other cities. We are completely satisfied with your services.
Whether requests were made by phone or email, follow up and confirmation would come immediately. This communication instilled confidence in the pick up of our guests regardless of where they were going in the city. We have also used Regency as our point of contact for other cities and countries outside the US when executives were traveling and we felt the same confidence that our requests would be fulfilled precisely as we asked.
Our client changed her flights several times which affected the airport location and pick up time. Regency worked with us last minute and did not charge us for all the changes, we appreciate that! Thanks for the great customer service!
