Tips for traveling like a boss
Have a positive attitude. This is the most important tip! Traveling is a lot like life. You might think you’re in control but you’re really not. Control is an illusion when it comes to circumstances outside of ourselves. The biggest and most real thing you can be in control of is your attitude when traveling (and in life!). And if you have a good one, you’ll be golden. Let’s just hashtag that baby #goldenattitude As Bruce Lee always said, “Be like water.” Always remember that everyone’s doing their best and to be as go with the flow as possible. If something goes wrong, it’s better to flow with the tide instead of fighting against the current. There’s nothing good that comes from fighting upstream when it comes to traveling. We all know that one guy who’s so upset they’re yelling at the desk attendant (yes, that one). Have you ever noticed how that person usually walks away still peeved? They didn’t get anything for fighting upstream, being a big cry baby and being mean to someone who has nothing to do with why they’re upset. Case in point: be like water and you’ll have a much more enjoyable experience. Use the down time to your advantage. There’s a lot of down time when in transit so I say, USE IT! Bring a book you’ve been wanting to read, bring your journal and jot down your travels, write a blog post, do research on something you’re passionate about. You get the drift! Don’t just kill time with distractions, do things that fill your cup and feed your spirt. When you use your time for good, you’ll have a good time.
Carry on essentials to stay fresh & inspired on your trip
Listen, just because you’re traveling doesn’t mean you can’t feel good while doing so! You should feel fresh, revived and even inspired to keep up good appearance. Why? Because it feels good. I know the times I’ve worn pajama-esque attire during travel, I feel like a pair of pajamas: droopy and tired. So my favorite way to combat this is wear a comfortable, yet stylish outfit that makes me still feel like me and take with me my favorite beauty carry-ons. You’d be surprised how much a little cream blush can go a long way.
- Hand Cream. Weleda Sea Buckthorn Hand Cream is my absolute favorite! When you fly, the cabin is pressurized and y its very common to become dehydrated so I’ve found having a go-to hand cream is super helpful (tip: drink lots of water). Not only does it keep your hands super soft and hydrated, it’s packed with tons of vitamins and promises a moisture-boost. Don’t worry, these are under 3 ounces and perfect for carry on.
- Blush Cream. Sephora Colorful Cheek Ink Gel because having a little color on your face makes you feel good. During flight or a layover, blush those cheeks up with a little dot of this.
- Toner. Claudalie Toner Elixir provides an instant burst of radiance! It really does. I love spraying this on my face (with or without makeup) because it instantly adds a boost of hydration when alot of times during travel you feel anything but radiant.
Don’t underestimate the power of rocking style even while you’re traveling. There’s nothing better than feeling put together and a big part of that are the accessories you wear. My go-to’s are always a necklace, a pair of earrings, a ring and my intention bracelets! No matter where you go, take your intention with you, it makes a huge difference in your day! This about sums everything up for traveling like a boss. I hope you enjoyed these tips. Do you travel often? What is your favorite takeaway that you’re going to use for your next trip?!
