As we approach the holiday season, many people are busy planning trips to travel and see friends and family. While trip planning can be stressful at any time of year, many people feel it is even worse at the holidays. Reasons such as potential bad weather, increased financial costs, large crowds and more can add on to stress during the holidays.
Virgin Pulse, a company focused on helping employees build better habits, offers the seven tips below to help make your holiday travels a bit calmer this year.
Invest in some noise-canceling headphones to help drown out crowds and crying children.
Spend wisely – unexpected fees such as airline baggage fees can put a damper on your travels. Check airline rules carefully to be sure you are not caught off-guard.
Get some exercise, even when away from home. Many hotels have a gym or you can do a quick workout in your room using your own body weight in your exercises.
Pack some healthy snacks to bring along on your trip. Try to avoid too many sweet and salty items.
Bring your own pillow from home, you may sleep much better this way.
Try to avoid distractions when at work. Keep a balance between travel planning and getting important work done.
When you do arrive at your destination, be sure to enjoy the time spent with family and friends.
So take a deep breathe, relax and try to enjoy this holiday season, even if you are traveling!
