Tips for Travel

19699275_sIf you are off on holiday soon here are some useful tips for travel

Now that the holiday season is just around the corner I thought it would be useful to share some helpful tips for travel to make your journey to and from your destination a more pleasant experience. None of us can guarantee a stress free journey. If you are flying, then there may well be queues at the airport, or the possibility of a delayed flight. Travelling by car brings its own issues, traffic jams, an unhelpful sat nav. Trains can be crowded, delayed etc.  So it is important to plan ahead when travelling so that you can arrive as relaxed as possible, ready to enjoy your holiday.

Here are some of my top tips for travel:

  • Stay Hydrated: We can often mistake thirst for hunger, so drinking water can help stave off hunger pangs. Especially in the drying environment of the airplane, water can do wonders. Staying hydrated also keeps you feeling fresher during your journey. This is also true for car or train journeys, so make sure you have a bottle of water to hand however you are planning to travel.
  • Carry baby wipes / facewipes. These are great to freshen up with when travelling whether by plane, train or car
  • Bring snacks from home – airports, service stations and train stations are often expensive places to buy snacks – Nuts, seeds, apples, protein bars and baby carrots are all good healthy snacks.
  • To keep your clothes smelling fresh, why not line your case with scented drawer liners. Simple yet effective tip.
  • If you suffer from travel sickness try the sickness bands or press the the sickness point on your wrist. this is located at Pericardium 6 (PC6). PC6 is located about 2 1/2 finger breadths up from the wrist crease on the inside of the forearm, between the two tendons that stick out if you make your hand into a claw

Have a great time!
