How to Get Back into Your Healthy Routine After Vacation
And after all of that food and wine in Italy, you’ll probably need a little extra encouragement getting back into your normal, healthy routine. We’ve been traveling a lot this year. Many of the trips have been less than a week, but sometimes it would take me more than a week to get back into the swing of things! I’ve been implementing different things to get the motivation for a healthy lifestyle to pick back up the moment I’m home. I’m proud to not only kick the post-vacation blues, but also transition right into my routine post-vacay.
Enjoy the Taste of Vacation Without the Guilt
One of the best things about vacation is being adventurous and trying new things. It’s typically where you allow yourself to indulge in delicious foods that you don’t eat on a daily basis, snack your way through the day, and just give in to your cravings. Trade in your margaritas and desserts for something you can feel good about eating! Whether you’re eating at your desk, on the go, or after a workout, it doesn’t have to be boring. With the brand new Liberté flavor, Italian Blood Orange with Ginger, you can let the taste take you back to the sweet days of vacay. Exclusively sold at Publix, it’s become my daily go-to breakfast or snack.
Food and drink hold some of the most special memories on every trip I take. When I come home and go back to a boring menu, it makes it even harder to stick to it. This whole milk, USDA Organic yogurt uses the finest ingredients from around the world (seriously, they went all the way to the Mediterranean to find the fruit for this flavor), and it’s made with no gelatin, sugar substitutes, or preservatives. 🙌
Getting back into a healthy routine doesn’t have to be dull. Light up the same senses you experience at a new restaurant on vacation and grab yourself this limited edition Italian Blood Orange with Ginger flavor! Don’t forget that you get a coupon when you sign up for the sweepstakes!
This can be a little bit tricky due to jetlag, but I almost always come back from vacation just kind of drained. The first night back, I let myself sleep as long as my body needs to recover. It’s truly amazing how important sleep is for our mind and bodies, so this is one of the best things to do to get back into the healthy routine. When I feel refreshed, I feel motivated and can jump right back into being productive.
Listen to your body and treat it with care. If you need the extra sleep, then sleep! Investing in a blackout shade is always helpful for jetlag, too.
Keep it Moving
If exercise is your normal routine, get right back into it with a short workout. Even better, workout outside to soak in the vitamin D! But if your desk is calling and work can’t be get put off, set an alarm to stand up every 30 minutes or so.
Personally, I can catch myself going hours at my desk without moving around or even eating. Now, I sit on an exercise ball at my desk so that I’m forced to use some muscles instead of slumping over. Liberté’s yogurt comes in handy, again, because it’s the perfect food to eat right at my desk. The intense aroma and taste of this yogurt is the perfect pick-me-up that feels like I’m still indulging in the delicious tastes of vacation.
If you’re like me, then the vacation lifestyle may have you drinking more alcohol than usual or enjoying sugary lattes in the middle of the day. And hey, that’s okay! But now that you’re back home, don’t continue the happy hour glass of wine every day. Instead, drink all the water you can! Not only will this help your body detox post-vacay, but it will trigger healthier choices throughout the day. Throw in a little lemon for that extra kick in the detox, too!
Focus On One Thing at a Time
Vacation is usually filled with the “I do what I want when I want,” mentality. You’re allowed to be selfish, splurge, and just be in the moment. Work is typically left behind and your new day-to-day routine is filled with fun. When you come back and get bombarded with emails, laundry, grocery shopping, and more, it can be a lot at once. When you’re bouncing back into the healthy routine of your daily life, make it less overwhelming by focusing on one thing at a time. Give yourself time to upload travel photos and unpack. Then set an hour aside strictly for catching up on work emails. Schedule in your workout for a specific time and stick to it. When you know exactly what you’re supposed to be doing and when, it makes the transition into your regular healthy routine that much easier.
More than anything, don’t put off getting back into your healthy routine after vacation. The longer you stay in a lazy/vacation mentality, the harder it will be to jump back into it all. Find the balance and treat your mind and body the way it deserves to be treated. 😊
