Good day, all. To continue this award winning (ha) travel series, I want to share some of the things that make me 'comfortable' while traveling.
First off, my bag-o-liquids for the carry-on:
Lavender Oil- induces relaxation
Peppermint Oil- helps with headaches, sore muscles
Rescue Remedy- to help ease panic attacks (yes, I get them)
Nasal Spray- to help keep my nasal passages moist and help trap airborne germs
Eye Drops- to help keep my eyes moist
Motion Eaze- to help prevent/ease motion sickness
If I check a bag, the regular toiletries are packed away. If not, I add the normal toiletries like toothpaste, deodorant, etc. And between Brenton and me, we can pack enough for us to be away for a week to 10 days.
Other comfort items I like to pack:
Ipod, with podcasts, guided meditation, Dave Matthews (lol), and apps, with earbuds
Magazine, or two....or three
Ginger Pills, Sea Bands (more assistance with motion sickness)
Pill Bag- Chlorella tablets, Vitamin D, Oregano Oil, Zinc, Bioplasma, Multi-Vitamin, Advil (ugh.), Bonine (just for motion sickness emergencies - haven't needed it since my Motion Eaze, Ginger Pills and Sea Bands! WHOO!)
Snacks- fruit, granola bars, nuts, crackers
There you have it, my travel comfort items. For long flights I like to wear long knee socks to help with circulation and a neck pillow so I can sleep.
It's important for me to get up and move around when I fly, especially because I have a problem with my ankles swelling. Take a look at these two youtube videos that have exercises and information about moving around while flying. Enjoy! xoxo
Next up- staying HEALTHY while you travel!
