When you travel around the world, it changes the world in you. This was one of my quotes a few years ago from my travel blog when I was blogging on a World Tour. In my opinion, this is still true today.
In particular, I have traveled a lot in the last 3 months and I am often asked how I do it. How to save energy, focus, communication, health. So here are my best travel tips – give it a try, you’ll love them.
TIP # 1 – MAINTAIN USUAL SECOND SLEEP HABITS. Either way it’s okay for me, whether I travel or not. But when I’m on the road, it’s critical for me to get some sleep. I adapt to the time zone I am in and go with it. I guarantee that the room is dark, cool, quiet and usually when at conferences, for example, I’m always in the room alone. I know a lot of people feel great joy when attending events for the sake of the room. It doesn’t work for me because I get enough stimulation during weekdays and meetings – I don’t need extra stimulation from anyone in my room who wants to take down a briefing for the next few hours. I have a time of failure so I can mentally prepare for a good night’s sleep. It also means limited electronics or TV.
TIP # 2 – GET REGULAR EXERCISES. Nowadays it can mean just counting your steps at airports – they are huge! It takes a lot of time and a lot of steps to get around. This year I’ve hired a personal trainer, and when I’m home, it’s very important. When I go on the road, I take responsibility, do exercises and post photos for my coach to show evidence of my commitment. At the very least, I do a few yoga movements that help stretch after long trips on a plane. I also bring an exercise DVD – me and Gillian Roberts – look at the world!
INDICATION # 3 – I GIVE A GOOD CHOICE OF FOOD. There’s really no reason to look in the menu when I’m traveling. 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 have chocolate croissants … just saying!) – I’ll try different products. But for regular trips – I stick to my usual food choices – and rarely drink when I’m on the road. It spoils my sleep. I know that. So why do it?
INDICATION # 4: I TREAL ACTION. Next to my clothes for the simulators in a suitcase is my “Thanksgiving Magazine”. When I travel, I understand and understand what a happy life I live and want to maintain my grateful attitude.
TIP # 5: KEEP YOUR SENSE OF HUMOR. Traveling these days can be frustrating, challenging and challenging. There are many things that are not up to me. It’s so important to maintain a sense of humor – and I do that by watching people. I love it! Most people have their faces glued to electronic devices – I just sit with my latte and watch. This is great for keeping stress low. (quality chocolate and Starbucks lattes make me a happy traveler! – also find your happy place!)
I have traveled a lot and will continue to do so. My travel tips – it’s not rocket science – they’re pretty simple, and yet work. Try it – you will like them too.
