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!
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.
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!
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 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!
