If you have booked your dream holiday to Australia, you are no doubt feeling excited! However, while holidays are incredible, there is just one problem: they interfere with our fitness goals. If you made a pledge to be healthier in 2018, and you are worried your trip to Australia is going to set you back, don’t be. You can still have an amazing time while also being healthy, and here are the ways to do so…
Embrace exercise while in Australia – There is no reason why you should give up your exercise routine while on holiday. In fact, this gives you the perfect chance to take up a new sport or form of exercise. Yoga is now available at Forest Rise, as well as other popular spots in Australia, and this is a great way to get a healthy mind as well as a healthy body, which is just as important. You could also sign up for a boot camp, take a dance class, or go cycling. The options are endless. Or, why not go down the traditional route and book a cricket or rugby lesson?
Pick restaurants in advance – There are lots of great restaurants in Australia. Research them in advance so you can pick places with plenty of healthy options.
Find inspiration – There are many different platforms that can give you the inspiration you need to be fitter and healthier while on holiday. You can use Instagram and Pinterest, for example. You can also follow YouTube channels that have healthy recipes and inspirational stories. Not only will this give you the motivation you need to continue on your journey while in Australia, but it will cure boredom while travelling too.
Have a goal – Why do you want to be healthier? Why do you want to lose weight? Write down all of the reasons why you are on this mission for a New You. By doing this, you will keep your goals clear in your mind and you will be motivated to achieve them, even while on vacation. Every time you are feeling tempted to break your healthy eating cycle or to skip your exercise routine, refer to this piece of writing and it will ensure you don’t fall off the wagon.
Make sure the people you’re travelling with are on your side – Explain how important it is for you to stay on track with your health and fitness goals, and your true friends will stick by you.
If you follow the advice that has been mentioned above, you should be able to achieve your health and fitness goals without compromising your holiday. If you fall of the wagon again, simply get back up and keep going. There’s no harm in eating that piece of chocolate or giving into temptation so long as you don’t allow it to derail you completely.
