Days of Sitting

When traveling by plane, train, or even by automobile, sitting is the normal way most people arrive at their destination. It may be fine for those with a job that requires them to be physical once they arrive, but many traveling careers require sitting at a desk. Days of sitting can take a toll on a person’s health. They may not be moving enough to raise their metabolic rate, and sitting around a hotel at night is not generally helpful.

Many hotels, motels, and inns today have at least a room where their guests can get some exercise. They may provide a pool, or there could be a treadmill, a bike, or even a rowing machine. Some will have weights for clients, and others might have an elliptical machine. The variety of exercise equipment available today means finding something to work with is generally easy for the modern traveller.

It can be difficult after a long day of working with clients to head to the exercise room. Remembering that it is necessary does not always help motivate people. It may be helpful for them to realize that their daily choice to exercise can keep them healthier long after they have retired. The goal is to stay healthy and fit now to increase their chance of longevity.

Sitting every day for work can be bad for health, but there are options now being offered to overnight guests. They know that a returning client is worthwhile, but one stuck in a hospital due to poor health will seldom return.
