If you are feeling particularly lively, hit the workout room to work up a sweat before you go back to your room and shower for the night.

Phone Home

So often these phone calls and texts go undone because we are too busy, but when you have this downtime to kill, this is a great use of your time and energy.

Enjoy Your Life

It is easy to get into a routine of dreading your business trips but it’s important to break that cycle.  You can make it a great time to grow your business and your career and also have some time that you reserve to do things that you like, such as play games you love, go for a swim, catch up with friends and more.  Downtime doesn’t have to be a bad thing, you just have to change your mindset, so it is something you look forward to.
