iPink Travel Smart Rule 1- Pack your workout gear
No matter how loaded your bags are a pair of keds and tracks are a must. Whether your travel includes adventure, unwinding or simply a stay at your hometown, make it your travel rule to make time for a quick jog, yoga or trek at any time of the day you can. Early mornings are the best time to indulge in your activity leaving you fresh and free the entire day to have fun.
Working out keeps your metabolism high and you won’t feel sluggish or lazy.
Including exercise as your physical activity keeps your appetite in check and you may indulge far lesser than you usually did.
Your activity will naturally take care of the few extra calories you may get tempted into.
iPink Travel Smart Rule 2 – Taste and waste for your waist
