Keeping Fit While Traveling |

Are you one of those people who travel constantly? Improved fitness and well-being is very important especially if you are traveling on business. Traveling can have an effect on fitness. Sometimes when you arrive, you will be dehydrated, disoriented and unfit to have fun. Are there ways that you can stay fit even with traveling?

Keeping fit while traveling is important, this can reduce stress and even increase productivity. So here are some ways that you can keep fit while traveling particularly if you are flying from east to west.

One thing you can do is to book or reserve a daytime arrival. And once you arrive, you can go outside and start doing something dynamic in the daylight. This will help you recover from jetlag more quickly. This will also help you adjust to a new time zone as well. Keep in mind that jet lag is just a result of your body’s circadian rhythm being out of order. And natural light is a powerful cue for your internal clock to tell where you are and what schedule to keep.

Another way you can keep fit is to have a bottle of water with you. Remember that the cabin is very dry and this will make you dehydrated. Having water with you helps you combat dehydration, which can cause fatigue. It is also better if you drink two eight-ounce glasses of water before you board. And then take one again each hour on every flight.

While you are on the plane, try to walk the span of the plane on every hour. This will help keep your back comfy and your muscles pliant. This will also help keep your blood circulating. You can also try booking a seat near the emergency exit when you are not traveling business or first class. This way you can have a roomier seat and will even give you more leg room.

And once you arrive at your destination, it is recommended that you withhold the hotel clock. This will guarantee that you will not sleep on your remaining 3 hours if you need to wake up at six o clock and you know that it’s already three in the morning.

In addition, if you are constantly traveling, try to keep your fitness level by exercising at least on every third day while you are traveling. If you are following a fitness program, perform at least a third of your aerobic schedule at your usual level of intensity.

Three Essential Travel Destinations For a Business Student |

If you run through the districts at the heart of the world’s great financial centres, few, in all fairness, are held to be the most interesting places to visit for the average tourist. But popular perceptions can so often be misleading. If you’re a student in the first year of a BS in business administration or a group of friends about to complete their business administration degrees, for instance, you could hardly hope for a more fascinating or valuable trip – after all, it makes sense to get a feel of what they’re all about before you find yourself there for real!

And it’s to that end that this roundup of three of the world’s essential travel destinations for a business student was put together….

Hong Kong Island

There’s no two ways about it, Hong Kong is on the up. In 2008 Forbes Magazine ranked the city as number two in its list of the ten most economically influential and powerful cities in the world (just behind London and above the mighty New York!)

But Hong Kong’s far from being just a sterile destination for business travellers: there are any number of interesting quarters – from the sights, sounds and gastronomic delights of Temple Street Night Market to the non-stop commerce of Stanley Market – which demand to be explored. What’s more whether seen from the heights of Victoria Park or from out across the bay, there’s a surreal beauty to its sparkling skyline that’s quite breathtaking.

Wall Street

Whether in literature, on screen or in popular imagination, Wall Street is simply synonymous with finance. Running east from Broadway to South Street on the East River through the heart of the city’s financial district and home to the New York Stork Exchange, it is still the central nervous system of the global economy. And you only have to stand, gazing up at the vertiginous buildings that line this bustling thoroughfare to feel its aura.

While it’s hardly held by visitors to New York to be one of Manhattan’s most interesting neighbourhoods, scratch beneath the gleaming, corporate surface and there’s more than enough to keep you busy. The first stop for visitors tends to be Arturo Di Modica’s “Charging Bull” statue; but the Art Deco splendour of 20 Exchange Place is well worth a look, along with other skyscrapers like the American International Building and 40 Wall Street, while Trinity Churchyard is an oasis of calm in amongst all the hustle and bustle – and a great place to stop for a sandwich!

The City of London

Like New York’s Wall Street, the City of London is a bona fide financial institution. If the bowler hats and canes are no longer used by the bankers and brokers, and the brash high-rises now soar over their older, more restrained counterparts, then there’s still something of the sense of grandeur and class about an area that used to be the administrative and financial heart of the world.

Standout monuments include the Natwest Tower, and Sir Norman Foster’s gleaming ‘Gherkin’ building; then of course there’s the Bank of England (and its fascinating museum – where you even get to lift a gold bar!) There’s plenty more in the way of history, too, whether it’s in the form of the majestic St. Paul’s Cathedral and the London Stone or the wonderfully antiquated Ceremony of the Keys at the Tower of London.
