It’s no secret — recruitment travel is exhausting. Early mornings, late nights, limited time and options for meals; it all takes a physical and emotional toll on many a road warrior. But it doesn’t need to be this way. In this episode of Admissions Live, our guests focus on balance and travel wellness. Topics covered will include:
- Eating well
- Staying active
- Maintaining a healthy sleep cycle
- Focusing on your mental health
