Making a Hotel Room Healthier

Staying healthy during and after business travel is a great goal for most of us who leave town for work. Here are some ideas from Deepak Chopra:

  • Reduce contact with germs (request laundered quilts and bring wipes to clean remotes, doorknobs, keyboards, and telephones)
  • Open your window, if possible
  • Use a dawn simulating alarm clock
  • Maximize natural light
  • Reduce intake of in-room snacks and food

I would add:

  • Staying in hotels with gyms, when possible, so you can work out
  • Buy some bottles of water prior to arriving so you can be hydrated, especially after flying
  • Pack a few granola bars, in case you get hungry
  • For optimized sleep and awakening, warm the room before bed and let it cool as morning approaches, as we learned in a past Link
