Alternative Medicine - - Health News & Tips -

Va­ca­tions aren’t the only time we travel— many of us have jobs that re­quire it at least oc­ca­sion­ally, and it may be hard to stick to your (health) guns when your daily rou­tine is dis­rupted. In fact, the US De­part­ment of Trans­porta­tion es­ti­mates that Amer­i­cans make more than 405 mil­lion busi­ness trips each year—and, as you may know, the lure of air­port food and po­ten­tial for lumpy ho­tel pil­lows (read: no sleep) of­ten bump us off track.

“It’s com­mon for busi­ness trav­el­ers to come home feel­ing sick, stressed, or hav­ing gained weight dur­ing their trips,” ex­plains cer­ti­fied coach and travel well­ness ex­pert Jayne McAl­lis­ter. “That just adds to the cost of the busi­ness trip and re­sults in less work be­ing done. The good news is that much of this can ac­tu­ally be avoided.”

How, you might ask? Here’s what McAl­lis­ter sug­gests to stay healthy both in and out­side of the of­fice.
