When you travel around the world, it changes the world in you. This was one of my quotes a few years ago from my blog trip when I was blogging on the World Tour. In my opinion, this is still relevant.
In particular, I have traveled a lot in the last 3 months and I am often asked how I do it. How I maintain my energy, my attention, my connections, my health. So here are my best travel tips – try them, you’ll love them.
TIP № 1 – REGULAR REGULAR BROADCASTING NEWS Either way it’s okay for me to travel or not. But when I go on the road, it is very important for me to fall asleep. I adjust to the time zone I am in and go with it. I guarantee that the room is dark, cool, quiet and normal when, for example, at conferences I am always room alone. I know that many people experience the great joy of sharing a room while attending events. It doesn’t work for me because I get enough stimulation during work days and meetings – I don’t need extra stimulation from someone in my room who wants to spend a deficit for the next few hours. It’s my time so I can get morally ready for a good night’s sleep. It also means limited electronics or TV.
TIP № 2 – Get regular exercise. Nowadays it can mean just counting your steps at airports – they are SO VERY! It takes a lot of time and a lot of steps to get around. I’ve hired a personal trainer this year, and when I’m home, it matters a lot. When I’m on the road, I am accountable, conduct exercises, and send photos to my coach so I can confirm my commitment. At the very least, I do a couple of yoga steps that help stretch after long trips on a plane. I also bring an exercise DVD – me and Gillian Roberts – look at the world!
TIP № 3 – I MAKE GOOD NUTRITIONAL CHOICES. There’s really no reason to look for a menu when I travel. I know I eat regularly for breakfast, lunch and dinner – now remember my 80/20 rule. If I’m somewhere special (like in Africa – I’ll be chocolate croissants … just saying!) – I’ll try different dishes. But for regular travel – I stick to my usual food choices – and rarely will I travel on the road. It will ruin my sleep. I know that. So why do it?
TIP № 4: I keep grateful. Next to my workout clothes, in your suitcase – that’s the only thing that goes in the suitcase. As I travel, I realize and realize what a blessed life I live, and want to maintain gratitude.
TIP № 5: HELP A PART OF HUMOR. Traveling these days can be frustrating, challenging and challenging. There are a lot of things that don’t fit me. It’s so important to maintain a sense of humor – and I do it when people are watching. I love it! Most people have their electronic devices stuck to their faces – I just sit, have a latch and watch. This is great for keeping stress low. (Good quality chocolate and Starbucks latte makes me a happy traveler! – Find your happy place too!)
I have traveled a lot and will continue to do so. My travel tips are not rocket science – they are pretty simple and yet work. Try it – you will like them too.
