Travel-Healthy Tips

by Saeju Jeong

Over the last five weeks, I’ve spent time in Asia, Europe and the U.S. Traveling the world for work might seem glamorous to outsiders, but it takes a toll on one’s body. Most people don’t realize business travelers are statistically at a higher rate for obesity. It’s easy to put on weight when continually eating airport food, with little access to gyms. For many years, I was one of those unhealthy business travelers, until my doctor said I needed to lose weight and my life depended on it.

Today, 37 years old and 5-feet-9-inches tall, I weigh 165 pounds and am in the best shape of my life. Here are a few health hacks I learned on the road:

  1. Plan a 10-minute “walk & talk meeting” after every meal, to work and give the body time to digest.
  2. Adjust sleep schedule to the destination before arriving. This balances the body’s internal clock.
  3. Practice interval training in the morning to achieve sweat in the shortest amount of time possible.
  4. Take extra vitamins and supplements on the road to keep the body healthy and energized.
  5. Monitor caloric intake with the app Noom, which has trained coaches, personalized eating plans and tips on how to stay on track.
