While business is obviously the primary purpose of business travel, taking a bit of time for yourself and exploring the new and exciting city where work has taken you can actually put you in a better mood and help you stay focused.

1. De-stress
Sitting in your hotel room and munching on food from the mini fridge is no way to de-stress. Instead, grab your coworker and take this opportunity to see the sights and get to know the city. You may find the change of scenery even more relaxing than taking a nap.

2. Exercise
What better way to explore your new environment than on a run? Not only will it help you stick to your fitness routine while you're on the road, but it will also get you energized and ready to tackle a day of client meetings.

3. It's an adventure
Business travel can be hard work, which is why you deserve to reward yourself for a job well done. Exploring a new city can be an adventure, and you'll get to create memories that don't consist of sitting in conference rooms for hours on end.
