Lexi Gancayco's Healthy Summer
19 May 2019STORIESBY SweetEscape

Fitness enthusiast and instructor Lexi Gancayco shared her healthy tips to prepare yourselves to welcome summer!

1. How Do You Get Your Summer Body Ready?

by Kristanto for SweetEscape in Bali

Honestly I don't think there's such a thing as a 'Summer Body'. You'd want to keep your body healthy and fit consistenly all year round. But I think how you keep your body consistently healthy and fit is really by having a good balance of consistent work out and a balanced diet; not depriving yourselves of anything but not indulging too much on good food as well.

2. When You Go On A Holiday Sometimes Your Diet and Fitness Regime Got Messed Up. How Do You Maintain Your Fitness During Trips?

Of course when you are on holidays or vacations, you really should maximize the whole experience of wherever you are, so you should not deprive yourselves of any experience–including food–, but as I mentioned before, you should also not indulge yourselves too much. It's all about balance. For example, if you know that you're going to have a big meal that night, do a lot of activities like walking or working out in the hotel for 30-45 mins in the next morning. You should not even do it everyday, doing some workout every other day is enough. Basically, watch what you eat; it's all about balance.

3. Any Must-Have Healthy Food / Drink For Your Travels?

by Kristanto for SweetEscape in Bali

Water! Wherever you go, bring water with you. I had to learn this the hard way because I was on vacation last year and I fainted out of dehydration. I didn't realize that I didn't have enough water. So wherever you go, fill up a water bottle with you, and keep yourself hydrated.

5. Science Museum, London, UK

When it comes to children, museums can actually be an awesome experience for them... depending on the type, of course. Located in the city of London lies the all-time famous Science Museum known to educate children on everything-science using interactive and fun methods to keep their attention going. Home to award-winning scientific exhibitions, showcases and objects, the museum that opened since 1857 has never failed to amaze its visitors. You know what they say, everything is better experienced first-hand, especially for when it comes to learning new things. Now, science isn't such an easy subject to cover - which is the reason why the museum was established in the first place. Who says learning has to be boring all the time? If you happen to have a kid who can't seem to get the idea of science, bring them here and you'll see how much of a great difference the place will make for them!
