How to Stay Healthy and Energetic While Traveling for Business

Posted on: August 15th, 2017 by Pontarelli Chicago Limousine Service No Comments


We all love to feel good. It’s no secret that the happier and healthier someone is, the more creative and productive they become. However, every single person in the world is different. Actions that may be helpful to some can be detrimental to others. It all depends on each person’s character traits.

Having based our limo service in Chicago, the third most populated city in the United States, we are lucky enough to have the chance to enjoy observing the beautiful diversity of the people traveling here on a daily basis. Nonetheless, even though variety keeps things interesting, it’s similarities that bring us together. Inspired by what seems to work for everyone, the following article will list the best things to do to maintain a high level of comfort during your business trip.

Be more aware of what you are thinking

Everything starts with the thoughts you are thinking on a regular basis. Every deep, subconscious idea going on in your head is an influence not only on your mood but also on your character as a whole. This is why you should always try to think thoughts that benefit your daily life and get you where you want to be.

The key element to making your thoughts positive is self-awareness. Observe what you’re thinking about more often. Ask yourself “What do I think of what just happened?” or “How is this action affecting my everyday life?” Simply by doing this exercise, you are making an effort towards improving your life, and your subconscious knows and appreciates it.

Eat good food

Hippocrates said: “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” This is an amazing way to look at the way you’re feeding your body. All you have to remember is the fact that everything you eat will make you feel better or worse. Practicing self-awareness is also useful in this case. Since different foods affect each person differently, pay attention to how what you’re eating affects you. Does your mind feel happy and alert 5 minutes after having a milkshake or a fruit smoothie? What about your focus, energy levels, and digestion? Be 100% honest with yourself and only eat what agrees with you.

Use caffeine wisely

Coffee can be an incredible ally or a bitter enemy. When you feel like you need a little pick-me-up, a nice cup of coffee can be perfect. However, having five of them on an empty stomach is a different story. Limit your caffeine intake to as much as you need, because we all know the drawbacks of the familiar caffeine crash.

Work as much as is good for you

It’s interesting to see how our working culture has evolved over the years. Workaholism is becoming more and more frequent, and with it, various other problems arise as well. It can be really complicated to stop working on a task before it’s finished, even if it takes hours to complete. Nevertheless, changing the way you think about breaks, may help. Having a break is not an interruption. It is a way to enhance your mood to stay productive for longer. There are many ways to rest actively. All you have to do is find the one that works for you.

Here are our favorites:

  • take a few steps
  • stretch
  • think about your favorite movie
  • have a snack
  • drink some water
  • look out the window
  • chat with someone
  • doodle
  • listen to a new song

Maintaining a healthy balance between work and play has helped our Chicago limo service thrive immensely. By making customer satisfaction a top priority, we have noticed how the type of energy you offer comes back to you in the end. Enjoy experiencing Chicago in a comfortable limo, feeling safe, pampered and relaxed. Regardless if you’re visiting the city for work or you just need a change of scenery, our services provide the option of experiencing this unique metropolis in excellent style.

We hope you too can relate to the tips we’ve provided today, and that they will help you enjoy a beautiful, productive business trip.

Business trips should be fun and productive. If you want to find out more about how to stay productive when you are traveling for business, read the blog post published by our New Jersey bus charters friends at Passaic Valley Coaches.
