Whether you’re taking one last seasonal trip, planning for holiday travel or jet setting for business reasons, traveling provides excitement and a new perspective. However, all that time spent getting to and from the airport, exploring new destinations and keeping up with packed meeting itineraries and happy hours doesn’t leave much time for fitness. Since many aspects of travel can be stress-inducing, it is important to fit physical activity in where you can to stay healthy and sane.
