There are many lists out there ranking cities in many different areas of efficiency including World Health Organisation’s air pollution levels, Mercer’s quality-of-living ranking and world cleanest cities, World Economic Forum’s Environmental Performance Score, Monocle’s Quality of Living index, and Siemens Green City index etc.
No, you will not be getting a straight-up list of 5 travel apps. Why, you ask? To be lean is to be flexible. We need to have solutions in hand to meet all situations thrown at us in this modern day, where we encounter a vast array of issues (wastes) in our fast paced and ever changing society. Very seldom do solutions come from one answer or one place. The more tools we have, the more we are able to be flexible.
Luggage is not an exact science and there's no one correct answer. Different type of trips and journeys will warrant different kinds of bags. But here, we will not be delving into the debate but will just be looking at some of the benefits of no-wheels travel bags and luggage.
While muscles are aspirations for some of us, it's your strength that really matters when it comes to functioning well as we grow older. We need to switch focus from mirror muscles to functional strength, flexibility, and balance.
The lean team have extensive experience having traipsed around the world over 50 countries, up to 150 cities (towns & villages) and eaten thousands of meals from budget street food to world class fine dining. It is not easy to come up with a top 100, least to say a top 3 best value dining experience. After much debate and contention, taking into consideration quality, cost and ambience, we finally came up with the top 3. We'd love to hear from you on this list or any other you feel is as, or more deserving.
When on holiday, especially a good long one, it is not uncommon to “subconsciously” adopt an "I-can-eat-whatever-as-I’m-on-vacation" attitude. The result is often holiday pudge that one will have to shift somehow or another…maybe…maybe not. But then again, even the most disciplined and health-conscious travellers struggle to maintain a healthy lifestyle while traveling. Here are a few “stay somewhat on-track” eating guidelines the lean team came up with to combat the will power-depleting temptations along the way. These doable guidelines will reduce the urges and opportunities to over indulge and hopefully, a smaller pudge to get rid off when arriving home.
At LeanPac®, we believe in lean mind AND lean body. There is no excuse not to keep fit during your travels. On the contrary, it is during our travels that we need to pay more attention to food and fitness. Here’s a list of body weight exercises compiled by the lean team. To prevent procrastination and induce the “just do it” spirit, spell a name/country/food etc. Take the first 5 alphabets; do the prescribed exercises, 15 reps x 3 sets (more or less according to fitness levels). Have little or no rest in between sets. 30 – 60 seconds between sets. Quality over quantity, hence slow and in good form is recommended. This shouldn’t take more than 10 mins!
If you’re new to modular packing, you might not be aware of just how many impressive benefits it has. Rather than struggling to pack or dealing with hard to find items, a lot of travellers are now embracing modular packing and its many uses.

What constitute toiletries? The oxford dictionary states “articles used in washing and taking care of one's body”. Grooming articles have since expanded from essentials like soaps and shampoos to an endless range of creams, waxes, oils and sprays…not forgetting electronic versions toiletry articles including toothbrushes, shavers and other apparatus.
