Business Travel: Avoid Exhaustion with our Top Tips
September 5th 2016
To many, it sounds exciting and glamorous to travel on business. Usually that’s because the thought of jetting away abroad at the expense of the company is one that gets the pulses racing.
In reality, travelling for work can become tiring, and whilst there is usually some downtime involved, the rest of the trip is usually a jam-packed hectic experience that can often take its toll on your health. It can take several days to recover from a long haul flight.
Diet: Food & Drink
Whilst away, it’s important to maintain a healthy diet as best as possible. It’s often difficult to have the same food standards as you would do at home, but it’s important to make good food choices.
With being abroad, it’s more than likely you’ll eat out all the time. Meals are often unhealthy and fried, so try to opt for the healthiest option and you’ll feel much better afterwards.
With you meal, swap your glass of wine, pint of beer or sugary drink for some fresh juice or water. Keeping hydrated whilst away is essential especially if the weather is hotter than back in the UK. A business meeting with dinner and drinks often results in fatigue and dehydration which is exacerbated by drinking alcohol.
Keep a bottle of water with you at all times too, so you can keep hydrated.
Exercising abroad can be difficult and not always convenient. If you’re lucky enough to be in a hotel with a swimming pool, an early morning swim can be a refreshing way to start the day. Similarly, a swim in the evening can cool you down and help you wind down for the evening. Stress and tiredness can be reduced by swimming.
Travelling for business can become extremely stressful. You have meetings and many things to do. You may have been set tasks and targets to achieve on your trip. All this can become stressful, and stress isn’t good for the body.
Keeping stress to a minimum will help avoid burnout and exhaustion. When going to meetings, leave in good time. Prepare for everything in advance. Make a packing list to ensure you have everything you need. Finally, when it’s time to book your Airport Transfers and Taxis, book with ZedCarz. We’re right there when you need us.
