My friend and Wellness travel expert Linden Schaffer shares her tips for Keeping Your Zen During Travel.....
Travel has gotten a bad rap over the years and the latest viral videos of on-flight and in-terminal bad behavior haven’t done anything to quash the visceral reaction most people have when you mention summer travel. So how do you keep your Zen through it all?
Shell out for Global Entry, it comes with TSA pre-check and gets me from the plane to the curb upon international return in 8-minutes flat. (Yes, I only carry on.)
Pay to pre-book your seat or seat class for maximum comfort.
Smile at everyone, but especially airline personnel. It disarms people and they will actually be nicer to you if a situation arises.
Look forward to airport/airplane time as me time. Plan activities that make you happy and that you don’t get to do often such as journal, read a book, or watch a movie.
Rely on your breath to tune out those around you and tune into your inner calm.
