We all want to go on holiday to enjoy ourselves and come home feeling refreshed and relaxed. Whilst we all want to make the most of indulging in new foods and whilst we are away, this can often mean that we come back our trip a few pounds heavier and feeling rather sluggish. It doesn’t have to be that way, follow these few top tips and you will return home feeling fabulous!
Choose your accommodation carefully
Deciding what type of accommodation you choose to stay in will have a huge impact on both your food choices and activity level whilst you are on holiday. Staying in a hotel with a leisure complex and swimming pool gives you easy access to a morning workout and a leisurely evening swim, which as well as being a little luxury will keep you trim. Alternatively, opt to rent self catering accommodation, like apartments or a holiday cottage from Sykes Cottages. This means that you can store and prepare your own food, saving you money and making it really easy to prepare healthy meals and snacks that you can take with you on days out.
Tuck into a good breakfast
A good hearty breakfast will set you up for the day and will stop you from getting hungry mid morning. It is a well known fact that people who eat breakfast stay slimmer than people who don’t so make sure you fuel your body for the day ahead. That said hotel breakfast buffets can often be packed with unhealthy sugary and fatty options so think carefully what you pick!
One of the best ways to see new places is on your own two feet. If you can, forget taxi’s, trams and busses and opt to walk around instead. Not only will this burn calories, it will save you money and usually means that you will see much more of a place than you would. If the journey is a little too far then why not consider getting off the bus a stop early and walk the rest of the way? Alternatively, many cities are now offering bike hire schemes meaning that you can get from A to B and get fit at the same time.
