There’s nothing quite as invigorating as taking to the open road in your RV for days or weeks at a time. While the fresh air and vacation time is surely good for your mind and body, your health can, unfortunately, often suffer in other ways when you travel. On vacation, we tend to indulge in poor food choices and forget any thoughts of exercise in favor of total relaxation.
But you can still enjoy the freedom and spontaneity of RV life without completely abandoning your health goals. Stick to these good habits on your RV trip, and you’ll remain healthy, happy, and ready for exploration!
Make plans to exercise.
If you plan to exercise on your trip ahead of time, you’ll be more likely to follow through. You can do this by simply packing exercise clothes and easy-to-transport gym equipment (resistance bands, free weights, yoga mat, etc.). Or, you can plan some active sightseeing activities that will let you work up a sweat while exploring new destinations. Even just stopping every 2-3 hours on your drive to take a quick walk will make a big difference.
Stay on top of your diet.
It can be challenging to make healthy food choices when you’re on vacation and just want to treat yourself or don’t have access to better options. Prepping meals and snacks for your RV can offer convenient alternatives to those unhealthy road food choices. Try to limit eating out to just one or two meals per week and grocery shop for your other meals. Establishing a rule that you can only eat when your RV is stopped is another good way to help avoid mindless, unhealthy eating.
Get good sleep.
Being well-rested on your RV trip is important. If you don’t get enough quality sleep, you won’t have the energy to stick to healthy habits, such as exercising or cooking healthy food, or to fully enjoy your travel experience in the first place. To promote good sleep, be sure to create a comfortable sleeping space in your RV. This should include a supportive mattress, comfortable bedding, and curtains to block out light. You will also want to do your best to adhere to a sleeping routine, which means going to bed and waking up around the same time on each day of your trip.
