The excitement of Christmas can be felt in the air, but sadly, this festive season has bought with itself the dreaded cold bug as well! Imagine if an unscheduled business trip crops up during this season and you are stuck with the cold bug; it is a complete spoiler! This is why we thought to provide you with useful tips and tricks to staying healthy during your winter business trip!
Most of us tend to rely on “grab and go” food on trips like these, and this is one of the main reasons our body is most likely to catch the winter bug. Maintaining a balanced diet and eating healthy is one of the most essential steps you can take to keep yourself bug free. Start your day with a healthy breakfast; consider drinking a yogurt-based smoothie as it usually contains probiotics and antioxidants that make the immune system strong. Eat lots of fruits and vegetables and if there are not many healthy options available, keep your supplements close by and remember; keep yourself hydrated, as it will flush out all the toxins of your body!
Though it becomes difficult to take time out for exercise during a busy business trip, it will not hurt to take the stairs instead of the elevator every now and then. Even small levels of exercise on a daily basis contribute greatly to boosting the immune system; take out twenty minutes from your busy schedule to explore the fitness area in your hotel, go for a swim!
Most of us have the habit of compromising our sleep schedules during busy times. However, this habit ultimately weakens your immune system. Especially during a business trip, since you are at a new location, it is absolutely necessary to get the right amount of sleep as ones immune system is more prone to catching disease in a new location.
Here are few things to keep in your travel pack for added protection!
– Antibacterial hand sanitizer, wipes, etc
– Pain killer drugs like Paracetamol (just in case)
– Cereal bars and dry fruits for the journey
– A water bottle that you can refill throughout the journey; remember the importance of staying hydrated!
