How to get back on track after vacation
Jump back into your regular exercise routine
Plan your week back to hit all of your classes/runs/workouts. Sweating it out on your regular schedule feels good and comfortable.
Eating all your meals out on vacation is fun and delicious but it feels great to get back to your normal eating schedule. Take a few minutes to plan out some healthy meals and snacks for the week. Stay hydrated and cut out the alcohol for a while.
Get back onto your time zone
Go to sleep at your regular bed time and attempt to wake up at your normal time. It can be rough the first few days but it helps to be on your regular schedule.
Unpack all your bags, do your laundry and get your house back in order. No easy task when you throw in the kids’ clothes as well.
Cut yourself some slack
This one might be the hardest of them all! Give yourself a week to get back on track.
