Some travel tips!

 

 

Where are you going, what are you doing, how will you get there? Slow it down. You’ll get there–when you get there.

Travelling with or without an illness these days can and often will try your patience, up your stress level, and test your sanity. Taking on the travel challenge might just be a little more peaceful and serene if you follow some of these tips:

1) If you are flying or are forced to be at a determined destination like a train or bus station, allow yourself even an extra hour of time to avoid the feeling of being rushed or stressed. The more self-induced pressure that you add to the event, the more energy you waste, and in a crowded airport, we all need to conserve our energy.

2) When we travel, it is easy to get distracted and lose focus. Deep breathing and meditation may help you keep on track and stay sharp. Something as simple as using an app like, Headspace, or sitting quietly and gathering your thoughts for a few moments a day, may improve concentration.

3) Make a special travel CD or playlist of of music that you look forward to hearing either in the car or once you get to the plane.

Some planning ahead and staying flexible can go a long way in your travels.
