How to Make Your Vacation a Healthy One
Do you have a history of blowing up your diet and fitness program while on vacation? Don’t worry. It happens to everyone
1. Book the Right Accommodations
Don’t simply make a reservation at the first, cheapest, or most convenient hotel you find. Look for ones that have a fitness center, a healthy menu (at least for breakfast and other meals you usually eat at the hotel), and wellness programs.
2. Start Your Vacation with a Run, Walk, Or Hike
Many guys like to get acclimated to a new vacation destination by taking a sightseeing bus ride or guided car trip. Instead this, why not run, hike, or walk to explore a new place? It’s so much healthier.
Starting your trip this way will allow you to see more things than you would in a vehicle. It’ll also give you a chance to stop at interesting shops, cafes, and other sites.
This can also be a fun way to people watch, check out local gay beaches or get yourself oriented with a city’s gay district.
3. Create a Simple Workout Program Before You Leave
Alternatively, find exercise routines online. Keep it short and simple so you can do it in your hotel room, at a park, or anywhere. If you have it at the ready, you’ll always be able to get some exercise even if you can’t get to a gym, no excuses.
4. Become a Morning Person

6. Practice Portion Control
7. Broaden Your Definition of Exercise
Take part in the winter sports activities at a gay ski week. Cycle to the attractions on your list. Go swimming or kayaking in a lake, river, or ocean. Do yoga in the wild. There’s no reason not to go hiking if you’re vacationing in a nature destination or walking in a great city.
8. Pay Attention to Snacking
Most guys plan their dinners while on vacation. They’re the centerpiece of many days away. It’s the meals during the day that become problematic.
Eating too much at lunch or stopping for snacks when touring around is deceptively easy. The problem can be even worse on unlimited food cruises or all-inclusive hotels.
Take time to plan all your meals while on vacation. Being conscious of your eating will help you keep control over your calorie intake while still enjoying great food. Quality is more important than quantity.
9. Go on A Wellness Retreat
An easy way to stay healthy on vacation is by booking a trip centered around wellness! You can ignore all the tips in this post if you decide to book a wellness retreat instead.
These vacations are centered around exercise, meditation, healthy eating, spa treatments, and more. In other words, it’s almost impossible to misbehave when you spend your vacation at a wellness retreat.
10. Be Kind to Yourself
After the last two years, everyone deserves to have an awesome time on vacation. If you overindulge or exercise too little, don’t get down on yourself. You’ve managed to stay healthy in the past and you’ll be able to do it again after you return home from your trip.
