Self Care While Traveling

Going on vacation is something that many of us look forward to! From simply being able to unplug from things like work and other responsibilities to planning fun and exciting activities to do with the family, it’s hard to find a downside to vacationing.  However, when we’re so focused on making the most out of our time away from “real life,” we forgo the things that keep us sane, such as doing a skincare routine, reading a book, or meditating, causing us to come back from vacation even more burnt out than before. Read on to learn about how we prioritize ourselves during vacation!

Prioritize Sleep

We know it’s hard… You want to accomplish everything on your itinerary and still have room to explore other things! But, at the same time, you won’t be able to enjoy all of the activities you’re squeezing in if you’re yawning and dragging yourself to each one. Make sure to get your required hours of zzz’s at night and schedule in some time for a power nap to make sure you can give 100% of your attention to all of your activities!

Schedule Time to Workout

Working out on vacation can sound like a waste of time, but it can also be beneficial! Adding in some leisurely walks to wake up the body or digest is always a good idea. Other fun things could be attending a workout class in a new city or doing some yoga poses to help relax your muscles and mind after a long day. Get creative with your movement; your body and mind will thank you!

Establish and Maintain a Wind-Down Routine

One of the most critical parts of our day is the time before bed. When we have a relaxing routine before bed, we not only get better sleep, but we also wake up feeling more refreshed! Whether journaling, taking a long bath, or laying out your clothes for the next day, establishing this routine and then maintaining it on vacation is something you’ll be grateful for!
