Avoiding travel burnout
Here at ISS, we are often on the road (or in the air) travelling to meet and work with our clients. As much as our friends and family may be jealous of our frequent travels, we all know full well that it’s not a holiday! For those who travel for work, as much as we may love it, there’s is no denying that travelling can be exhausting – we’re yet to hear from someone who loves unpacking and repacking!
So what do we do to keep travel burnout at bay?
- Keep up our healthy habits – Maintaining a healthy diet & increasing our hydration is really important. We often carry protein-packed snacks and keep our fluids up by drinking 1above.
- Use supplements and equipment to help us with jet lag – we’re big on using things such as melatonin, personal humidifier masks and light therapy glasses so we can hit the ground running without jet lag hitting us too hard.
- Exercise – We always pack our joggers! It’s good to get out and get some fresh air and vitamin D. This also really helps with jet lag.
- Attempt to become a local – Before we head to our new destination, we like to research things like a go-to coffee shop, the closest gym and best places to work from remotely. This helps to feel more at home, without having to scramble to find things once we arrive.
- Plan our flights – Where possible, we always try to travel the most direct route. It can be very tiring having multiple and/or long layovers.
- Take a break – It’s really important to get some downtime, especially with friends and family, to feel refreshed and ready to go.
