As most of us know, the majority of people are right-handed. The world is designed for right-handed people, and people tend to be inclined to move toward their dominant hand.
If you want to avoid long lines, you need to go against the grain and take a left if there’s a fork. Everything will be a lot faster.
Double-Bag and Tape Toiletries
Known as the “mystery leak,” many people open their luggage only to find that their clothes and other belongings are soaked with some strange liquid. The culprit? Usually, a bottle of shampoo or other toiletries exploded or leaks during travel.
Between changes in air pressure and overly rough baggage handlers, the possibilities of a cap unscrewing or bottle breaking are great. Using tape to seal caps and then wrapping those taped-up bottles in large waterproof plastic bags will ensure that your suitcase stays dry and your shampoo lives to see another day.
Take It Easy
So many blunders can happen when you travel. Flights get delayed more often than you think; you can be seated next to someone who has no understanding of personal space and even more disastrous things.
But half the time, you cannot change these things, so it’s better to just relax. In situations like these, a good attitude is the best attitude.
Stretch a Little
Regular stretching on a long-haul flight is extremely beneficial to your overall health. Sitting for a long period of time will do some serious damage to your spine, so you want to make sure you’re getting as much movement in your body as possible.
This is also good for your blood flow as the flow of blood to your limbs can be obstructed. A few basic stretches in the aisle every hour can make the world of difference. Be sure to keep it up, and soon others will join you.
Turn on Your Phone Notifications
Apps can help you get a lot of information about an airport and other travel essentials. Applications like Trak-A-Line will help notify you of long lines.
There are a ton of other apps as well that can help you with traffic alerts and getting to the airport on time. This just makes the experience a lot easier and puts your mind at ease.
