Do you love to travel for leisure? Do you work in a field that has you plane hopping more often than not? Do you feel energized or drained when flying on airplanes or tackling traffic? If you answered yes, keep reading!
In the past 8 weeks I have had 8 trips and have been on 22 airplanes! For someone who is energetically sensitive, especially in groups, that’s a lot of energy sharing with people on airplanes. I have traveled extensively over the past decade as I travel to conferences to provide trainings. In the past, I would become fatigued quickly, take weeks to have my energy bounce back, and most often would get sick from being on airplanes and/or having too much back-to-back travel. So although I have worked to reduce my travel over the past few years, this latest travel extravaganza had me concerned. But I did a few things differently and have maintained my energy and have stayed healthy!
So here are my 5 super simple tried-and-true techniques to keep your wits while you travel!
1. One week before, during and one week after travel, use Young Living Thieves essential oil. This is a miracle oil. It is antiviral, antibacterial and anticootie! I used the oil two different ways: I placed one drop in a small glass of water and drank it twice a day (yes, you can drink these essential oils … do not do that with any other brand) and while on airplanes I would enjoy the Thieves lozenges. If you only try one of these techniques, this is the one!
2. Be careful about how you talk about travel because what you say will come true! I changed my thoughts about travel that I would stay healthy and energetic and stopped myself from saying anything about getting tired or sick. And it worked! Change the way you look at thing, and the things you look at change!
3. Travel is not a time to eat fast food or junk food. It is so important to eat energizing foods … live food (lots of fruits, veggies), drink a lot of water, and avoid alcohol and processed foods. I try to avoid airport food so I pack my own snacks (usually nuts and dried fruit) and I drink A LOT of water!
4. Travel with grounding crystals! I recommend taking small tumbled stones as it will avoid some odd looks from TSA. I always travel with crystals and love to sleep with them under my pillow. I made sure to pack crystals that would help me stay grounded. When you are in an airplane, you lose your grounding to Mother Earth. So the crystals that I packed were Black Tourmaline, Hematite and Malachite.
5. Most people who travel a lot want to get to the destination and get home as fast as possible. If you can, and if the location resonates with you, try to find a little time to connect to nature in the area. This is grounding. In two locations I arrived a little early and spent some time enjoying the area. I soaked in an outdoor hot mineral spring outside of Boise, ID and yesterday I drove as close to Mt. Rainer (outside of Seattle) as possible and spent some time in the cold mountain energy. (Check out my photo below standing in front of 15+ foot snow piles at the closest point to the Mt. Rainer summit!) Both of these activities gave me extreme grounding and connection to Earth which has helped me to maintain my health and peace of mind.
What you do before, during and after travel can make the difference between being sick and tired or being healthy and energized. Although I will be cutting back on travel, I am so thankful that I discovered simple methods to help keep me through this travel extravaganza. I would love to hear what works for you (or if these tips also work for you)!
