You’ve finally made it on that long awaited vacation and nothing could be better, but what happens when you come home and realize you’ve lost money and gained weight? While vacationing is all about taking it easy and experiencing new things, that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank and go up a belt size. Check out these tips from Last Minute Travel Club on how to stay fit and save money while on your much-deserved getaway:
- Pack Snacks: Did you know that about 80 percent1 of losing weight is a proper diet? By packing healthy snacks, you can treat your body to the nutrients it needs and spend that extra cash on the experience of a lifetime.
- Keep Active: One of the best parts about vacationing is experiencing the sights and sounds of a new place. From exploring the ancient streets of Rome on foot to hiking Machu Picchu, your body will be put to work without you even realizing it.
- Relax: Aren’t you on vacation to relax anyway? So sleep well, stay hydrated and take your time eating those to-die-for local dishes. By slowing down and giving your mind a break, your body’s cortisol (metabolism hormones) calms down, which can lead to weight loss.
- Travel With Your Pup: Why pay high kennel fees when you can bring your best friend with you on your newest adventure? Dogs love exploring, from hiking up mountains to running by the ocean, they’re always up for a new experience – especially with their favorite human. So don’t forget the dog treats and spend your time off with your furry friend.
