We go on vacation to take a break or “escape” from work, schedules, meetings, responsibilities etc.

While it's definitely encouraged to take a break from many of those things for your well being, completely leaving your mental and physical health goals high and dry may end up causing more stress later on.

It’s easy to want freedom and to go with the flow while on vacation which makes it that much easier to find yourself gaining 5-10 pounds after vacation from all the food and drinks with very little movement.

Here are 5 easy tips to stay on track with your health goals while on vacation:

  1. Meal prep (plan out your meals)
  • While planning your vacation, think about the meals you want to make. Here are some easy healthy  camping meal recipes. 

  1. Healthy snacking
  • Help reduce your hunger cravings with some healthy snacks like:
    • Beef Jerky
    • Fruit
    • Nuts
    • Hard Boiled Eggs
    • Hummas


  1. Exercise 
  • Plan at least one active activity a day while on vacation like:
    • Hiking
    • Swimming
    • Walking
    • Bike Riding 
    • Kayaking
    • Paddle Boarding

  1. Stay hydrated
  • Don’t forget to drink water! Staying hydrated is often a forgotten part of good health. 
    • Bring along your favorite reusable water bottle and diffuse lemons, mint, or ginger to encourage drinking plenty throughout your day!
    • Pack an    electrolyte supplement for an easy way to ensure hydration while out exploring.

  1. Enjoy quiet time
  • Vacation is the perfect time to disconnect and recharge your body and for your mental health.
    • Turn off your electronics 
    • Find a body of water or escape into the woods and listen to nature
    • Read a book
    • Enjoy family game night or some friendly yard game competitions 

Don’t think of your vacations as a time to “cheat” on your health, but as a time to actively experience the world as your best self!
