stay fit and healthy on the road
12For many people, travelling the globe in planes, trains and automobiles is part of their job description. It’s imperative to have a travel strategy in place, otherwise fatigue and, at the very extreme, burnout can be the result. Get quality sleep and recovery time. Get a good seven to eight hours' sleep each night you are on the road and take time out to engage in regular activities that help you relax. Reduce ambient noise. Buy a pair of noisereducing headphones to drown out the noise of the engines and lose yourself in a movie or by listening to your favourite music.
3Eat small, healthy meals. Just because the business lounge menu has deep-fried fish and chips doesn’t mean you have to tuck in. Stay hydrated. Cabin pressure and airconditioning draw even more water out of your body than normal, so as a general rule drink 500ml of water every 60 to 90 minutes when flying. Reduce alcohol intake. Cut back on alcohol when you fly. More than one or two glasses of wine will interrupt your sleep patterns and make you feel tired when you land. Get physical. Exercise helps fight jet lag and boosts your energy and concentration.
