Tips for Your Trip

With spring break just on the horizon, comes the 20 hours road trips to come with it. For all you lucky students flying to your destinations…oh how I envy you. While some of you are staying home for spring break (Check out our last blog!), the rest of us will be traveling/sitting in a car. From what I understand, sitting for longer than an hour or so is not good for you! Sure we can sit at our desks or in our offices, but we also have the freedom to stretch and stand whenever needed.

It is important to drink water both before and after you work out as well. It is a great idea to bring a water bottle everywhere you go this summer. You can also add fresh fruit to your water for variety in the summer.

It is also a good idea to take breaks in the shade if you are outside for extended periods of time. Hats and sunglasses are also great options to use as protection from the sun. Continue reading
