It’s almost that time of the year for family reunions, gift-giving and holiday cheer. Which also means it’s time for long lines, heavy traffic and restless crowds. However, we go on a vacation to get away from the pressures of work, but navigating through and getting on your flight can be the most stressful part. So here we have compiled a list of do’s to help you have a happy vacation.
- Arrive early at the airport
This may sound like a no-brainer, but arriving early gives you enough time to account any unforeseen circumstances that may arise. Also arriving early provides enough time for checking and you can gather your entire luggage and wait in the lounge until the announcement.
- Pack your bag the night before
This is important as when you are trying to pack the bag on the day of the trip, chances are you won’t be able to find an important item or something is still in the laundry. This all adds up to the stress and makes your day bad and often you forget some important things to pack. So, always, always pack the night before.
- Charge up before you go
Nothing is more frustrating to find out after starting your trip that your electronics are not charged. So make it a habit to charge all your devices the night before the travel.
- Eat smartly
Overindulging goes hand-in-hand with the holidays. Large family meals and eating on the go can wreak havoc on your diet and make you feel more stressful. It is advised that you carry your own travel snacks. Prepare individual servings of dried fruits and be sure to follow the serving size on the labels. Avoid carrying salty snacks as they dehydrate you. Also, drink plenty of water as it not only hydrates you, but is a good stress reliever as well.
These are some essential tips you need to follow to have a stress free vacation.
