It's the most important meal of the day for a reason- it gives you the energy to start the day right. If you don't want to eat out, buy some fruit and cereal from the local grocery store and eat in your hotel room.
Stick to Your Routines
It's easy to think of traveling as your time off, but taking care of yourself is just as important as always. Exercise, taking vitamins or medications, and even skin care will allow you to feel your best while traveling.
It's the most important thing you can do while traveling. Many people do more physical moving when they're on vacation, so your body will need rest each day. Crossing time zones, carrying luggage, walking all day, etc. can be hard on your body.
Carry a water bottle with you at all times and drink enough water even though it may not be convenient to find public restrooms on the road. Most of us tend to indulge in alcohol and rich foods when we travel, so staying hydrated is key to not spending your trip dehydrated or sick.
Have at Least One Fresh and Healthy Meal a Day
There's nothing wrong with trying all the amazing food in a new city, but having several large meals a day can be hard on your body. If you can't commit to eating healthy while on a trip, at least do it for one meal a day. Visit local markets and pick up fresh produce, meats, and seafood. If cooking isn't an option, choose carefully at restaurants. Order grilled instead of fried, try a vegetarian meal, and don't forget the salads!
Use Wet Wipes and Hand Sanitizer
Soap and water are always better, but these come in handy when they aren't available. Think of all the things you come in contact with while traveling- people, doorknobs, all kinds of things. Don't eat with those dirty hands!
Protect Your Skin
Wear sunscreen and reapply often. You definitely don't want to deal with sunburn during your trip. Insect repellent is a good idea too.
Don't try to see an entire city in one day. Consider staying longer and spreading out your itinerary. Be active; just don't overdo it. Have fun and take plenty of breaks.
