For some people, travelling can be the cause of additional stress, especially when travelling for business over a long period of time. However, it doesn’t need to be that way – travelling for business can be relaxing. Here are some tips for busting stress on business travel trips.
Book First Class
If possible, try booking first class. This will guarantee you peace and quiet, as well as impeccable service.
Enjoy Leisurely Pursuits
Engage in leisurely activities, such as reading a book or a magazine, listening to music or completing word or numerical puzzles to pass the time.
Switch Off Technology
Using technology on a regular basis can hinder our ability to switch off, so turn off your phone, tablet or laptop if you can and digitally detox.
Take a Nap
Sometimes, getting a bit of shut-eye, even for a short period of time, can help us to feel calmer and well rested.
Be Mindful and Breathe
Take yourself off autopilot and be aware of the world around you. If you can’t switch off your phone, then download mindfulness exercises, which are designed to help keep you calm.
Pack all of your items in advance, make sure you have all of your important documents and check over your schedule. Getting organised will put your mind at ease.
Sort Out Your Suitcase
If possible, try to take on a wheeled carry-on suitcase in order to reduce the chance of losing your luggage. Also, place your items in specific compartments of your luggage and check that it is clearly labelled so that it is easily identifiable.
Check-in In Advance
If you check-in in advance, you don’t have to waste time standing around in queues, especially if the check-in desk is busy.
Hire a Chauffeur
Hiring an executive chauffeur is a great way to arrive at your destination on time without feeling angry or flustered, and here at Carrus Group we want you to have a smooth trip. If you book to travel with a chauffeur you are guaranteed to travel stress-free and you will be well looked after.
