How to Survive as a Business Traveler
December 10, 2015[ssba]
- Bring your charger, and take a screenshot of your boarding pass
Keep an extra charger in your suitcase you travel with at all times. This way, if you forget to bring one in the rush, you’re backed up! Additionally, take a screenshot of your boarding pass. You never know if you’ll have reception, or if you will accidentally lose that small piece of paper.
- Wear layers
Temperature on planes and trains is unpredictable. Be prepared by bringing layers along so you can regulate your comfort easily.
- Stay hydrated
Drink lots of water. It’s often easy to forget, but giving your body lots of fluids keeps you alert and comfortable.
- Wear socks and easily removable shoes
When you go through security, be ready to move quickly without being encumbered by your own feet. Keep socks on to avoid being barefoot on airport floors!
- Bring healthy snacks
Airports often don’t have fresh, healthy snacks, so shooting to remember to bring them before you arrive is helpful. Plus, healthy snacks make sitting for long hours more bearable.
- Bring reading materials
You’re not guaranteed wifi on a flight or a train ride, so indulge in reading the old-fashioned way!
- Carry on your luggage
Avoid checking your bags as much as possible. You don’t want to risk the possibility of them being lost, plus carrying bags on is much faster.
- Leave your valuables at home
Don’t bring anything along that you wouldn’t want to lose. Leave that tiara at home!
