Fitness on Vacation: 3 Easy Health Tips for Your Next Trip

A vacation can be one of the best ways to recharge, restore and relax. From experiencing a new city to soaking in sun-filled beach days, vacations are proving to be instrumental in balancing overall fitness. Another way to ensure a healthy balanced life is to exercise and eat right. Exercising or dieting on vacation may not seem like your ideal way to spend your time-off. Hey, what’s is a vacation for, if you aren’t taking a break?

Exercising is actually an important part of relaxation. It helps improve your mood, fills your body with energy-inducing endorphins and is meditation in motion. Eating right can also help increase your energy and limit your stress levels. And the best part of less stress means more restful sleep!

In fact, enjoying fitness activities while on vacation is much more common than you might think. A recent survey from the American Resort Development Association (ARDA) conducted by research group Leger, found that 52% of vacationers work out every three days. And timeshare owners are leading this group, with 90% stating that they work out while on vacation.

So, are you wondering how to maintain your fitness while still making your vacation restorative? Take a look at these easy health trip tips.

1. Get Your Workout In

Sometimes the easiest and most rewarding exercises can be done in thirty minutes or less. And with the average timeshare unit measuring up to 1,050 square feet there’s plenty of room to fit in a quick exercise routine without leaving the comfort of your room. Fitness apps such SWEAT and Kineticoach are great for finding short exercises that utilize your body weight and circuit training to keep your heart rate up, and your endorphins flowing.

Another way to get in some exercise is to explore your destination. Taking a  relaxing beachfront stroll, or discovering local attractions on foot or on a bike, are perfect ways to take in all your destination has to offer while keeping you active. One of the best parts of being a timeshare owner means you have access to exclusive excursion and activities that get you moving without making it feel like work.

2. Eat Healthy

One word – fresh. Take a tip from locals and find farmers markets, produce stands and specials that are unique to your destination. You’ll get to explore the people, food and culture of your vacation spot while finding tasty new ingredients to cook with. Utilize the fully equipped kitchen in your timeshare to make vibrant and fresh meals with your family and friends. Not only can it be delicious and healthy, but you can increase quality time with the ones you love.

3. Balance Your Metal Health with Sleep

A good night’s rest goes a long way and vacations are the perfect time to catch up on those zzz’s. Having multiple rooms in your timeshare ensures everyone on your trip has their own space to unwind. Not only are you able to be in a new bed to help you detach from the usual stresses found at home, but you can get up to an extra hour of sleep. More restful sleep at night means you wake up with a clearer head and more energy to seize the day.

Make the most of your vacation by taking care of your wellbeing and enjoying all your timeshare has to offer!
