Vacation is something every one of us looks forward to every year. After all,  we all need a break from the monotony of work or school. Vacations also give us enough time to bond with our families and friends.

From a fitness standpoint, the problem with vacations is that we usually think it is the time to ease up a bit on our workout programs. We tend to give ourselves a break, too, from working out. But those 1-2 weeks of rest may have tremendous consequences on your body and mindset.

Whether you intend to spend a vacation outside the country or spend it at home, here are some tips to help you stay in shape during your well-deserved break:

Regularly work out

Vacation should not mean taking things easy as far as your workout goes. Even if your day is packed with activities, try to squeeze in a few minutes of exercise before you start the day. You can work out at the gym in the hotel where you are staying. You may also check if there’s a Crunch Fitness outlet in the city where you are vacationing.

If there’s no gym around you, then there are other things that you can do to sweat it out. You can do basic body weight exercises like push ups and squats. Even an hour or so of running in the morning, or a 15 minute walk on the beach, can prove to be invaluable to your workout program.

Watch your diet

Vacation should not give you the excuse to indulge in unhealthy foods. Splurge sparingly during your vacation. You can choose a couple of times during your trip wherein you can eat some unhealthy foods but make sure to balance things out by working out the next day.

Don’t skip meals

A common fitness pitfall among vacationers is skipping meal while on a holiday. It may be easy to lose track of time because you’re too busy enjoying the sights, but this should not be a reason at all to skip meals. Skipping a meal would easily lead you to consume too many calories at your next meal.

To avoid binge eating, make it a habit to eat every three to four hours. Bring some healthy snacks along with you if you are outdoors, so you won’t go hungry and go on a binge eating at your next meal.
