We’re on the road a lot at Tier 1 Event Management, Inc., so we know it can become hectic and unnerving at times if you’re not prepared for certain scenarios. Here are some of our favorite sanity-saving travel practices:
• Advance Planning: Our Tier 1 Event Management, Inc. team suggests carefully planning and confirming each detail before you leave on your trip. This is especially important with regard to any flight, car rental, or hotel plans booked by outside agencies.
• Review Your Schedules: If you’re presenting, verify that the rooms in which you’ll be setting up technology are properly equipped. Check the travel distances between all points (hotel to meeting site) and buffer extra time in your itinerary to accommodate delays.
• Stay Energized: We’ve noted with our own travels through Tier 1 Event Management, Inc. that it’s easy to get tired when on the road. This adds to the stress. The best way to avoid it is to stay hydrated with plenty of water and eat healthier food choices. Yes, fast food is convenient, but try to avoid oily options which will make you feel sluggish. Go for more salads, lean proteins, and complex carbohydrates which will deliver sustainable energy.
• Guard Downtime: Remember, you are fully entitled to time for relaxation while traveling. Cherish the moments by exploring new areas, visiting the gym or sauna, or simply unplugging and enjoying a good book.
These practices will allow you to enjoy travel more.
