Healthy Business Travel, by Intention

I just watched the short vid that Chris Brogan put out on his blog in which he was promoting a carry-on suitcase that is simplifying his busy travel life. The suitcase was nifty (by Eagle Creek) but what caught my attention was some of what Chris had packed in this suitcase. The rather ample side pouch was filled with pre-packed baggies from home filled with healthy snacks! I love this!

Chris is a guy on the go. His work touches the lives of many of us out in cyberland and he routinely shares his experiences, suggestions, and encouragement to be our best in our business and personal lives. What this recent video demonstrates (watch here) is that Chris is integrating the concept that awareness mixed with a bit of planning ahead will enhance our opportunity for physical and emotional health and well-being.

Travel often means eating out of airport food courts as well as on the road quick stops to the big box chains. Often too, travel eating is done so quickly, as we rush to the airlines gate or next meeting. The fact that Chris has recognized this and has prioritized himself by taking a bit of time to plan ahead with healthy and nourishing snacks for travel is a wonderful lesson to all business travelers. His physical health is being supported by this choice, and his emotional well-being is getting a boost, as he manifests an intention of taking care of himself. That’s a powerful combination. Way to go, Chris! I hope other viewers notice the bagged snacks and what they represents!

"With you guiding me through the HeartMatters program, I was able to achieve a level of physical fitness that made regular and focused exercise feel more like a natural part of my day. I had slipped into a malaise that meant exercise could be ‘put aside’ for work or other important activities. Getting past this is a subtle but powerful accomplishment.

I really enjoyed playing and exercising with you outdoors (my preferred MO for our time together). The joy you bring to your work is wonderful. This flexibility put a kind of structure into my day that helped me ‘choose’ again – showed me how to take back some control of my schedule for important things like meditation and exercise.  It was also part of my journey of re-learning how to say NO to things. This represents additional forward movement for me.

Thanks Robin – I have really benefited from your work in more ways than just the obvious fitter, leaner, stronger me."
