…is an oxy moron, because I have no chill when it comes to travel. I don’t know what travel zen is, but if someone can help me figure it out, I’d love to know.
I am still catching my breath after my connection between Boston and Denver. Naturally, I had to land at JFK of all places- a city where my aggression comes out in full force. I had a 15 minute layover in New York thanks to a fog delay, so I ran as fast as I could to the shuttle to get from Terminal A to C.
It was a headache.
I messaged my friend Brett to let him know it was possible I would have to take a later flight. Thankfully, I got a hold of him to let him know I made it with just a minute to spare. He’s leaving work early to come get me, so I wanted to make sure I wasn’t messing up his schedule, either.
I don’t know how people do it. I have two friends who work for Accenture as consultants, and they travel every single week. I WOULD PULL MY HAIR OUT. Although I tried to take deep breaths and remember “everything happens for a reason,” I still have no zen when it comes to logistics.
Journaling, music, and holding my Fluorite stone seemed to help calm me down once I got settled on flight #2. Now that I’m en route, I feel much better, though I doubt the people I pushed past in the airport would believe me.
On another note, I’m stoked to spend a few days out west- we’re hiking in Boulder this weekend, exploring downtown Denver, relaxing, and of course dining out! It will be a great getaway.
What are some of the ways you chill yourself out while traveling? Trust me, I need some tips other than Xanax.
