5 Ways to Ditch Travel Fatigue

It’s tough to stay alert and focused all day, especially when you’re jet-lagged or exhausted from the flight. Travel fatigue is a real menace and can lead to you failing in your goals. The good news is that, while you can never make it go away, there are some simple things you can do to reduce the effects. This post brings you the 5 most important

1. Maintain a routine

A problem with travel is that it often causes you to change your routine. Even if this is maybe no more tiring than your normal day, this change will take some getting used to. The solution is to try and stick to your routines as much as possible, this will make things as easy as possible on your body.

2. Stay active

Just because you’re on the road does not mean you get to skip all the things that keep you healthy. Keeping energy levels up by some physical activity will definitely make you feel more alert and for longer, even though it can be difficult to start.

3. Mental escape

Even away from home you need to allow your brain a little time just to relax and recover from the daily grind. This should be regular and absolute. Regular breaks will keep your energy levels from dipping and absolute means no interruptions for work!

4. Call home

Some of the fatigue associated with travel stress can be as a result of being disconnected from friends and family back home. A short call to your children, spouse, or best friend will really help put things in perspective and make you feel alive again.

5. Streamline your commute

All the tips to this point have been about making fatigue itself more bearable but don’t forget to make the time you actually spend traveling as efficient as possible. If you can minimize the wasted time on your commute of journey, you may be checked into that hotel hours ahead.
