According to the survey, 87 percent of respondents feel it is important to surround yourself with people who help you maintain balance.
• Stay connected. Make time for family and friends even while on the road. It can be easy with today’s technology. A few minutes of video chatting can make a difference—75 percent say that communicating with loved ones while traveling helps keep them balanced.
• Enjoy your freedom on the road. While sticking to a daily routine while far from home may work for some individuals, more Americans (64 percent) say living outside of their normal routine and embracing their freedom on the road is what helps them stay balanced.
• Find tech-life balance. Technology is necessary in today’s world and definitely helps people organize and maintain busy schedules; however, you don’t have to let it get in the way of time with friends and family or for yourself. Indulge in some tech-free time; know when to put away your phone and refrain from checking e-mails and social media.
• Keep a healthy diet. Eating well on the road is often challenging, with nearly 60 percent of people saying they eat less healthfully when they travel. Starting the day with a good breakfast, not skipping meals, and staying hydrated will help you maintain momentum.
