Tip #1: Think Green

“I make a green smoothie (pureed greens and whole fruit), which I carry in a metal canister to drink before flights. I then use the canister as my water bottle for the rest of the trip.”

Tip #2: Guzzle it Down

“For every hour you are flying, drink at least 500ml of water and drink a stack before you leave for the airport. I always carry my own 2L bottle on international flights.”

Tip #3: Take it Easy

“I don’t overdo exercise when travelling. Your body is more compromised and responds best to gentle and consistent (i.e. daily) movement.

  • Run the stairs. Only got time for a quick 10-minute workout? A few laps of the internal stairs is great.
  • Use the gym. It’s there on your doorstep! Catch the news on TV while you’re there.”

Tip #4: Pack Prepared

“I always pack my swimmers and goggles in case there’s a pool in the hotel or nearby. Also handy if there’s a steam room, which is a boon for frazzled adrenals and blocked lymph’s!”


Tip #5: Disconnect

“When working while travelling put the onus on others to email you back. Often my out of office will say: “I’m away until X date and won’t be replying to emails. Please email me again after X date if your matter is still valid/important.” Often, a matter is redundant by the time you’re back on deck.

Tip #6: Schedule Rest & Work

“I also like to use the widget Pomodoro Technique. It’s a timer that spaces out focus stints and rest stints for you. It’s wonderful for getting focused work done.”

Tip #7: Avoid Over Exposure

“I always travel with a battery-operated alarm clock instead of using my phone as the alarm to minimise EMF exposure.”

Tip #8: Take a Flanerie

“This is a wonderful French word. And it’s very Parisienne in nature. Flanerie: to take a wander around a city just to look and smell and absorb. No buying. Just looking, in gardens and parks and galleries.”

Tip #9: Do Your Research

Research the area on Broadsheet  or Time Out before you travel, to check out best places to eat or drink.”

Tip #10: Choose to Dine Solo

“This is another great way to get a feel for the local culture and vibe. Sit at the bar so you can talk to the staff if you don’t want to be stuck alone in a corner.”
