Hooray for Friday!
Hope you all had a crushing fantastic week!
As the holiday season is right around the corner, the long flights to see family and friends are inevitably approaching, and we can all use some tips not to get bored, tired, or too anxious upon your next trip.
Check out my list to make your future long flights bearable:
Take a nap
Yes, I know how hard it can be to get a decent nap in during a flight, especially if someone has their reading light on. That’s when you pull out your sleepy mask. Also, be sure to pack a chin supporting travel pillow, or book a window seat.
Listen to music or a podcast
Download your favorite playlist, or find a podcast series that can entertain you for hours. I listen to Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday, Oprah’s Master Class, Think and Grow, Ted Talks, Law of Attraction Radio, Tony Robbins, Stellar Live, and Casting for Two Podcast. Pack Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds in case you end up snoozing so you don’t end up with tangled wires spilling all over the place.
Read a good book
Download a book for your phone, iPad, or computer. If you want to be old school stop by the airport gift shop before your flight or pack your favorite book from home in your carry-on. Reading an exciting novel or a fascinating biography will make it feel like your flight time is cut in half.
Whether you write your dreams and goals on a piece of paper, or on your phone, iPad, or computer it sets your mind for success. Writing down your goals gets you thinking into the future. It allows your frontal lobe an opportunity to look at your future life instead of obsessing about past events that won’t matter five years from now.
I know you are all tired of me telling you to meditate, but all it takes is 17 seconds to focus. Allow your thoughts and chatter to float away like clouds. The rock star benefits of meditation are endless, so show yourself some love and quiet your mind.
Wherever your wanderlust soul takes you be sure to allow the mind to be in the moment and have fun!
Sending loving and happy weekend vibes! 💋
