Despite my excitement, and despite having traveled a lot in my adulthood, I often get anxious about a lot of the aspects of travel. When it comes to packing, preparing, and how the trip might impact my mental and physical health – just the logistics leading up to the airport can be enough to really rattle me, even before the trip itself actually begins. I overthink the weather, what clothes to pack, and how many. I usually way overpack and it’s always most obvious by my shoes! I mean, who needs more than an average of one pair of shoes a day? I guess if ever it’s me, at least I’ll be prepared. I’ve definitely gotten better over the years at being more kind to myself about my packing habits (and other habits lol). But I’ve also been able to incorporate some strategies or personal best practices to help alleviate some of my stress when it comes to travel.
