How to Stay Healthy on Your Spring Vacation

published on March 20, 2019 by

Spring vacation is a chance to relax and enjoy new experiences. However, it usually comes at a huge cost to your health.

You might get a third plate of bottomless chips, lounge around at the pool for hours, or linger at the local tavern past midnight. These unhealthy behaviors will likely follow you home.

You can have fun and stay healthy at your spring destination. Here are five tips to help you:

1. Get a Good Night’s Sleep

Sleep plays a major role in how your body functions. While adults require seven to nine hours of sleep in a day, research shows that 35% of American adults report getting less than seven hours each night.

No matter where you vacation, it’s critical for you to get a good night’s sleep. It will give you the energy to play a round of golf or take your kids on a roller coaster.

Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Orange Lake Resort – West Village

The Holiday Inn Club Vacations at Orange Lake Resort – West Village is a top-notch timeshare resort to get the sleep you deserve. A one-bedroom villa sleeps four and features a king-size bed and sleeper sofa. Refurbished over the years, this resort in Kissimmee, Florida, offers a mix of luxury and comfort with updated décor. You’ll wake up well-rested and ready to take on the day’s activities.

2. Plan Fun Activities

Staying healthy isn’t always physical. On your spring vacation, you’ll want to work out your brain, too. Sharpen your mental skills by planning lots of fun activities.

From bingo to snorkeling, timeshare resorts provide a multitude of options for you and your family to explore. It’s better than sitting down on your phone all day.

At the Marriott’s Timber Lodge Tahoe located in South Lake Tahoe, California, you can hike the Mt. Tallac Trail, tour the Emerald Bay State Park, and try water sports. Read this recent review from a timeshare renter:

“Never disappointed and a vacation that is always anticipated each year. Private beach is walking distance. Many amenities nearby, making this location accessible to everything by foot. Movie theater, miniature golfing, great restaurants and shopping. Minutes from walking over the state line into Nevada for a concert and casino vibes.”

3. Make Healthier Food Choices

During your vacation, it’s easier to eat extra calories without thinking about it. You want to try that new spicy chicken wrap or indulge yourself with a few more margaritas.

The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas

You deserve to taste the local cuisine on your spring trip. Just be mindful of how you eat throughout the day and choose healthier options for a couple of meals. For breakfast, you might satisfy your sweet tooth with a stack of pancakes soaked in maple syrup. Instead of steak and potatoes for lunch, you can load up on fresh veggies with a small portion of chicken breast. It’s all about maintaining a healthy balance.

In Hawaii at The Westin Nanea Ocean Villas, there’s a full-service, ocean view restaurant with a menu of international cuisine. Plus, the resort’s signature SuperFoodsRX menu offers nutrient-rich food to support your healthy habits. You get to experience the best of both worlds!

4. Sign Up for On-Site Classes

Exercise is probably the last thing you want to do on your spring vacation. But there’s good news! When traveling to a timeshare resort, you’re not limited to treadmills and elliptical machines for your physical activity.

You can switch up your fitness routine by signing up for on-site classes. Rather than sticking to what you do at home, register for an activity out of your comfort zone. You’ll meet new people and stay healthy.

Guests at Pueblo Bonito Resort Los Cabos in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, have unlimited access to all on-premise fitness centers, which include state-of-the-art equipment. You can pick from a full schedule of daily classes, ranging from water aerobics, power walks, dance lessons, and yoga on the beach. There’s also golf and tennis facilities, like the new Quivira Golf Club.

5. Take Time to Relax

We live in a world of back-to-back meetings, kid carpools, and unexpected stresses. So, you’ve earned a few days to kick up your feet and breathe the fresh air. Whether it’s getting a massage at the resort or walking along the beach, take the time to relax.
