For all my travelers out there, especially those who travel for work, I understand how difficult it is to maintain a healthy work out routine.
I know that after long flight hours, and several meetings, all you want to do is curl up in bed and sleep until you have to leave again.
But trust me when I say this, you should definitely set your alarm early for the next morning and go for that run you’ve been procrastinating the whole week.
Recently, I had to spend an entire week working in Miami, and honestly, I was so tired that I didn’t even want to breathe! (okay, maybe I exaggerated a little). But instead, I set my alarm to 5:30 am every day, went to the beach, and did what I call a circuit workout. Basically, you just create 3-4 different stations of workout, and in each station, you have to accomplish a certain exercise. You can do knee highs from one trash bin to the other, you can carve holes on the ground and run from one to the next, you can do a core workout, you just have to be creative.
Not only you will see a beautiful sunrise, like the one in my picture, but you will smell the ocean, get some fresh air, feel the sand on your skin, and see some interesting people. And the best part about the whole situation was: swimming in the ocean afterward with the sensation of a mission accomplished.
It doesn’t matter if you are at the beach, or just a normal city, wherever you are you can go to a park, or run through the city’s streets (which is great to get to know the place better), all you need are your shoes and some determination. You will go to your work more energized, and when you come back at night, you will sleep feeling like your day was fuller.
Don’t be lazy to try new things. A day that you wake up earlier, is a day that you lived more.
