Resilience on the Run

Recently someone asked me “How do you stay resilient when you are on the run?” What a fabulous question! Much of my life is spent in a car, on a plane, a hotel room or in front of an audience. When sleeping and habits are disrupted, how do you stay resilient?

Let’s start with what not to do:

  • Don’t eat late at night if you can avoid it

  • Don’t get a hotel room by the elevator, ice machine or vending machines

  • Don’t create schedules that are such tight timelines that there is no room for flexibility

What can you do to stay resilient on the run?

  • Use the time on planes and in airports to catch up on reading

  • Bring healthy snacks and drink lots of water

  • Most hotels have gyms or pools, a great way to get some physical exercise and keep your fitness routine

  • Enjoy the time on the plane or at the airport chatting with people, you never know who is sitting beside you!
