1. Always Make Time For Breakfast
Just because you travel for work doesn’t mean you should skip the most important meal of the day. A hearty breakfast will help keep you energized throughout the day, which is vital, especially if you have to work all day. That said, you need to give yourself at least ten extra minutes for your breakfast. Use the 10-spare minutes to identify a nice spot to have your breakfast. Try to locate a nice hotel where you can have a simple breakfast. This is particularly important if you are in a foreign country. Breakfast in a 2 or even 4-star hotel is much better than starting the day on an empty stomach.
2. Bring Some Earplugs And Eye Mask With You
You want to grab as much sleep as you can when traveling for a business trip. Many hotels tend to have a karaoke floor, which can make your night miserable, especially if looking to sleep early. Unless you aren’t the kind of a person affected by noise, it would be advisable to invest and bring good earplugs with you whenever traveling. You might also want to couple it with some eye mask to help create a favorable environment for sleep. The earplugs and eye mask will prove useful during the first few nights of your stay. Some people eventually get used to the noise, hence can sleep soundly despite the noise coming from the karaoke floor.
3. Take Some Time To Familiarize Yourself With The Surroundings
If traveling from west to east (Europe to China), then chances are you will be jet lagged and a little disoriented from the time difference. There is an even bigger chance that you’ll want to go to bed as soon as you get to your room. Experts advise against this and recommend trying to stay awake as much as possible, and especially if you arrived in the morning. Go outside and take a stroll in the streets, or even bask in the morning sunshine – be sure to bring a water bottle with you. There are plenty of things you can do on your first day. You can choose to go sightseeing or simply take a stroll around the hotel. Your body will slowly adjust its internal clock to the new timelines. This means you will only go to bed when other people are, hence reduced risk of falling asleep during a meeting the following day. If visiting a hot country, the rule of thumb is to have a water bottle with you all the time to help keep your body hydrated.
4. Find The Closest Local Supermarket
It is probably best to find and identify a local supermarket, especially if staying for more than a week. Most hotels in China have excellent customer service, where they will offer two half-liter bottles of water, breakfast, lunch, and even fruit in the evening. Although you could simply have a substantial breakfast before leaving your room, or have lunch on-site, it makes more sense stocking up a few things from the local supermarket to use in your room. Considering hotels will follow a routine, chances are they won’t serve your favorite fruit or snack. Going to the supermarket and stocking up on these will make your stay in the hotel worthwhile.
5. Try To Stay Healthy
It can be quite hard to watch your diet when traveling overseas. There’s a good chance you will gain weight from all the binge eating and wanting to try every local delicacy there is. It would thus be advisable to watch your diet and what you eat while there. The first step to staying healthy is drinking lots of water to stay hydrated. The next is to shift to the time zone’s eating pattern as well. Eating mindfully is what will reduce the risk of gaining a few more pounds or suffering from indigestion altogether.
6. Make The Most of Your Free Time
Staying lone in your room can become lonely at times. However, you can make the most use of the ‘free’ time on your hands during the trip. Use the time to write that novel; you have always been wishing to write, read, or even go sightseeing. You could also do some exercises, such as sit-ups, press-ups, or swimming, to stay fit. Even a 5-minute workout will go a long way in keeping you fit. Formulate a plan to stay active and eat healthy during your stay, and everything else will fall in place.
