Anyone have travel plans for the summer? Whether the flight is long or short, we all know what a crazy, stressful situation this can present! I’m headed out to California this week, and I am determined to have a zen travel experience. Here are some tips I plan to use, and some that are tried and true!
o Stay hydrated! Soo important because airplane cabins are known for dry stale air. Keep water near you at all times.
o Same goes for your skin! If you have dry skin, add some additional moisturizer inflight.
o Keep healthy snacks close by- lots of times airport food is unhealthy. Try to eat light, and pack in the proteins, to avoid tummy troubles.
o Make sure you have a mini “flight bag” with pharmacy items like Alka-Seltzer’s, pain relievers and anti-bacterial wipes, and anything else you might anticipate.
o Bring relaxing music on your ipod or mp-3 player! You can even download nature sounds, anything soothing and relaxing to you.
o Always have a good book or magazine for a mental escape as well.
o Splurge on a cozy plush neck pillow, or wrap for your shoulders when your trip gets chilly.
o Dress loosely, even down to your feet! Loose shoes are good, since feet tend to swell during the flight. (Nowadays you have to remove them in security anyways!)
o Mentally- stay relaxed and centered. Focus on your goal, getting to your destination! Try not to get caught up in the “travel stress’ going on around you. Tune it out! But don’t miss your flight! Happy travels and enjoy your vacations..

Sounds selfish doesn't it? I know I have mentioned this before, but you have to take care of yourself first people. Emotionally, physically, financially, and on and on. Guess what?? What will the people who depend on you do if your broken down in any of those areas? Yes, hopefully family and friends would step in to lift you up, however- sometimes when we know we should say NO instead of YES, we take away valuable time and resources from ourselves!!! I do consider myself a giving and generous person, but when I'm emotionally or mentally beat down,and don't have much to give, sometimes and those around me may not "get it". Oh well! I would rather take some "me" time to get myself refreshed, so that I can tackle life and be the best mother,sister and friend, ect. that I can be to my loved ones..I know it's hard for some, so just take baby steps, practice saying "no", take some time for yourself, and communicate how you really feel... You would be surprised, those who care about you will really understand! Peace and blessings :)
