• Why it's important to stay active while traveling


    When some people choose to travel, they want to keep up with their exercise routine in order to stay fit. However, a new study is suggesting that a number of people who travel for business rather than pleasure were more likely to adopt unhealthy habits that could lead to obesity.

    The Montreal Gazette is reporting that researchers from Columbia University examined more than 13,000 business travelers for a one-year period. They found that individuals who travel the most were more likely to have a large body mass index (BMI).

    Although the research covered business travelers, it's important that those on vacation keep the results in mind, particularly if they like to go away frequently.

    As a result of this study, travelers may want to consider keeping up with their healthy habits even while on vacation. Doing a lot of outdoor activities, hitting the hotel gym and eating right are all ways to keep off the pounds. While it's okay to calorie splurge and relax while on vacation, it's still important to watch the scale.
