Your intentions are most powerful in the morning – make an intention for what you want the day to be (adventure and relaxation vs. eat fest)
Exercise first thing in the morning or else odds are it ain’t happenin’…don’t go to the gym, you are on vacation! Do something relative to the trip that is active (walk/run on the beach, go for a hike etc..)
Eat a healthy breakfast to set yourself up for the rest of the day. Amongst the buffet, there are always eggs and fresh fruit. Hardboiled eggs are the best choice because there is added oil in the omelets
If you want to drink, don’t do the desserts – it just too much darn sugar
Sugar will weaken your immune system making it easier for you to acquire travel related “bugs”… it also feeds the bugs, bacteria and parasites
Sugar causes fatigue and who wants to feel crappy on vacation!?
We tend to look at things as black or white. Once we start eating off the wagon, the thought crosses our mind “eff it, I’m on vacation and I already messed up, I’ll just detox when I get back home”. TAP OUT!
Instead… press the reset button for the next meal and commit to yourself that you will RESET and eat in a loving way to your body. You stay tapped in (to mind-body consciousness) and have a better experience while you are away
After our seven day yoga retreat full of super-healthy vegetarian meals (no free treats!), this guy left the airport and headed staight to P. Terry's for a burger and fries. Allowing yourself some leeway to have a little bit of this or a few bites of that while vacationing will prevent the pendulum swing once your are back in the real world :)
