Business articles & tips that will guide you.


Depending on the requirements of your job, you might find yourself travelling from anywhere between once a year to once a month.  While for those stuck in the office every day business travel continues to retain an air of charm, for those struggling to maintain their personal lives, mid-week trips to cities around the world can be a bit overwhelming. In order to get that Zen feeling back in to your life, read on for some tips on how to balance your personal and professional responsibilities.

1. Eat a healthy diet
It might seem obvious, but in the face of unlimited amounts of luxury food all covered by expenses, it can be hard to resist steak, chips and a hot pudding every night. Whilst it may seem fantastic fare for a while, a bad diet can make you feel sluggish, drained and even lead to accelerated burn out. To stay healthy and energised on the road, pick salads, fruits and protein that will keep you feeling fuller for longer.

2. Travel in style
Rather than wanting to book everything first class, the trick with stylish travel is to choose a reliable airline and stick with it. Your loyalty will earn you elite status perks and upgrades that will make all the hours spent travelling much more enjoyable. If you fancy a helping hand with securing discounted airfares and making travel arrangements, log on to http://www.co-operativetm.co.uk/ and let Co-operative's Travel Management take care of the whole process for you.

3. Don't sacrifice your personal life
Business travel might be a way of life, but it shouldn't be your whole life. Rather than worrying about sacrificing quality time with loved ones from day to day, count weeks as your main unit of time. If you are away from home for the whole week, take a day off to catch up with your friends, family and enjoy fun leisure projects.

4. Find a way to unwind
Even though you are travelling for business, you won't spend every second in the boardroom. Although you don't have your regular crowd of friends to spend time with, it's important to find a way to detach so you can refresh your mind and give 100% the following day. Activities like reading, drawing, doing a crossword, taking a Skype call with a loved one or watching some sport on satellite TV will keep you entertained and relaxed away from the hustle and bustle.
