I know that sales representatives are busy and they are always on the road. When you are busy, it’s hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle, let alone keeping a healthy eating habit. Most times I see sales representatives that have no time to eat so they rely on junk foods and unhealthy snacks to keep them full in between their meetings or sales calls. If you are a sales representative and you want to change this unhealthy lifestyle, read this article as I have 5 easy-to-follow tips to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
- Prepare Your Meals in Advance
Meal prep is key in terms of healthy eating. Set aside some hours to prepare your meals and snacks on the weekend, keep it safe in the refrigerator for the whole week and you should be settled. Another benefit of doing a meal prep is you can also track your portion and maintain your calorie intake. In addition, don’t forget to also prep your healthy snacks such as fruits, oat bars, or juices.
- Store Some Little Extras
If you are always on the go, it will be great to store some small bags that contains snacks or easy ready-to-go meals. This will prevent you from buying unnecessary meals or snacks at gas stations or wasting time to find restaurants when you are traveling.
- Research, Research, Research.
Sometimes it’s hard to find a restaurant that carries healthy foods when you are traveling. Often times we have to settle with fast food chains because there seemed to be any other options. That’s why it’s important to do a proper research before you go on your travels. Check out some healthy restaurants that you can visit in the city that you are traveling to. Or, you can also check if your hotel has a healthy foods menu in their cafes.
- Take Care of Yourself
As a sales representative, it is common for us to take great care of our clients. Most times we always put our clients’ needs first, but sometimes we tend to forget that we also need to be taken care of. That’s why it’s important for sales representatives to squeeze some self-love activities during their travel. Make sure that you have enough sleep, try to schedule some exercise, or at least try to spend a couple of minutes to meditate during your trip.
- Skip The Alcohol
Although it is understandable that sales representatives want to unwind themselves after a busy day, it is best that you avoid drinking excessive alcohol during your business trip. Not only that alcohol is bad for your health, it also can make your body feels tired the next morning. If you are feeling tired, you may lose focus and lose some sales opportunities.
Keeping a healthy lifestyle as a sales representative is not an easy job, but it is doable as long as you set your heart on it. I hope that these simple steps can help you to achieve a healthier lifestyle and be more productive.
