Traveling can be as stressful as it is enjoyable. Getting to the airport early, standing on long lines, crowds of people pushing and rushing in every direction as they try to get to their destination, cut-backs on airplane services and of course…rising ticket prices. The idea of a “peaceful vacation” is history.
Here are some tips from Healthy Hemp Energy to get you through this hectic modern era of travel.
Finding the best priced airfare
Before booking a flight or hotel, check out the many travel sites for a side by side price comparison and consumer reviews. **Flying on Tuesdays and Wednesdays can save you hundreds of dollars compared to weekend flights. If you have a flexible schedule, even better! Last minute travel bookings can save money as all seats that were unsold will go on discount!
Pack only what you need
Pack as light as possible. Let me repeat, PACK AS LIGHT AS POSSIBLE! (Big Shoes take up lots of space and add lots of weight which equals more cost). Plan ahead and choose the outfits you will need for your trip. Fold them in groups (i.e shirt, pants, undergarment, socks). Keep them folded together. This makes not only makes it easier unpack, it takes the timing consuming guesswork out of the “what to wear.” Don’t forget to leave room in your bag for all your new purchases too!
Manage Your Stress
Traveling can cause a lot of stress and anxiety for many people. Consider managing your stress through meditation and mindfulness techniques. These can be purchased or downloaded on your cell phone before you leave for your trip. The more centered you are the easier your traveling will become.
There are also natural remedies like melatonin, kava-kava, passionflower, chamomile, valerian, B-complex and ashwagandha that help with stress induced anxiousness if you don’t want to take prescribed medications. Whether we are traveling for a much needed get away, exploration, or obligation positively managing your stress is key for you to have a good time.
Remember to keep yourself hydrated while on a flight as the high altitude and cabin pressure can do a number on your. Dehydration can also cause fatigue and irritability. So drink plenty of water!
