4 Tips for Stressless Air Travel
Even amongst the onslaught of holiday travelers, there are ways you can learn to deal with the stress of flying home. At Holiday Hideaway, we had a plane-themed photo booth courtesy of Norwegian Airlines to keep spirits soaring. But after the event, we also hit up our friend Dr. Pete Sulack, founder of StressRX.com and America’s Leading Stress Expert, for his best tips on flying stress-free.
Pack your own food
Why? Airport food is generally low in quality but high in price. Plus, when your body is stressed it becomes toxic and deficient. To help it function, you need food that nourishes your body, rather than stuff that adds to the stress and toxins. Try coconut water, green tea, fresh and dried fruit, protein bars, and nuts.
Don’t be late
Being late for a flight causes a huge amount of unwanted mental and physical stress, Sulack says. This causes your body to release stress hormones (cortisol and adrenaline), thus lowering your immune system and making your feel totally blah.
