Well­ness On the Road

Yoga Journal - - CONSIDER THIS -

The Tour has criss­crossed the U.S. over the last 6 months, ex­plor­ing the cul­ture of yoga in cities large and small. Life on the road is filled with amaz­ing ad­ven­tures and beau­ti­ful friend­ships, as well as a unique set of chal­lenges that liv­ing out of a suit­case can bring. Whether your next ad­ven­ture is 2 days or 2 months, here are tips to keep you healthy and liv­ing vi­brantly!

EX­PE­RI­ENCE

The gift of travel is that you en­rich your­self through ex­pe­ri­ence. We of­ten pack our agenda and try to cap­ture ev­ery mo­ment through pho­tog­ra­phy, lim­it­ing our abil­ity to be truly present. Hav­ing the mind­ful­ness to be in the mo­ment is key to an in­cred­i­ble ex­pe­ri­ence. It’s a beau­ti­ful thing to take a picture in your mind, have it be­long to you, and al­low it to float away with­out be­ing at­tached.

FOOD

Ex­pe­ri­enc­ing new cul­tures of­ten be­gins and ends with food. Be­ing ad­ven­tur­ous with your palate lets you tap into each place, and cre­ate mem­o­ries with one of our strong­est senses. If you’re trav­el­ing for more than a few days though, it can wreak havoc on your plans for a healthy diet. A great rule of thumb: if your food choice is some­thing you’d find eas­ily at home, and isn’t healthy, choose some­thing lighter. But when those mo­ments of de­li­ciously in­ter­est­ing re­gional cui­sine ap­pear, dive in with no guilt!

EX­ER­CISE

Find­ing time for reg­u­lar ex­er­cise is dif­fi­cult, but it’s one of the best ways to re­duce your stress while trav­el­ing, keeping you healthy and happy. Make time for it even if it’s not your typ­i­cal prac­tice. Seek out a rec­om­mended stu­dio in your area, and (a fa­vorite of the Tour) use the early morn­ing as an op­por­tu­nity to take a run or long walk through the city. There is ab­so­lutely no bet­ter way to ex­pe­ri­ence a new lo­ca­tion than on foot!

SUPPLEMENTATION

Supplementation is a ne­ces­sity when trav­el­ing. We’re far less con­scious of the nu­tri­ents we’re con­sum­ing when eat­ing out. Make sure you’re cov­ered with an op­ti­mal sup­ple­ment plan be­fore you leave. Noth­ing makes a travel ex­pe­ri­ence even bet­ter than be­ing at your best, so stock up on Sol­gar’s Mul­tivi­ta­min VM 75, Full Spec­trum Cur­cumin (great for sup­port­ing joint health with a reg­u­lar yoga prac­tice), and a pro­bi­otic Probi 30.* For those times when you need a boost of en­ergy we love Sol­gar En­ergy Kicks!* Sol­gar’s line of top qual­ity sup­ple­ments has been a life-saver through­out the Tour!

Sol­gar is a proud spon­sor of the 2017 Live Be Yoga Tour. For more than 65 years, Sol­gar has sup­ported the health and well­be­ing of those who strive to live vi­brantly ev­ery day. Our on­go­ing mis­sion is to cre­ate well­ness ori­ented sup­ple­ments and in­no­va­tive prod­ucts with the high­est qual­ity and nu­tri­tional ben­e­fits.
