Business Travel Tips Part 1

Traveling for business can be both hectic and stressful. Keeping a positive attitude can be hard, especially when flights are delayed or cancelled, or the car rental company charges you for the wrong car. That said, there are ways to minimize inconveniences and make business trips more tolerable and less stressful. Here are a few tips:

Be Prepared - Carefully plan every detail of your business trip as far out in advance of the trip as you can. Double check all dates and times on flights and your hotel check in. Map out the best routes to all of the places that you will be visiting while on the trip. Always try to stay ahead of the game and think about what could go wrong with your current plans.

Pack Light - Only take what you absolutely need for the trip. Try to fit everything in a carry-on so that you do not have to check your luggage at the airport. This will ensure that your luggage does not get lost. It will save you time and you will have everything that you need with you at all times.

Good Hotels - Choosing the right hotel can make all of the difference in the world. Try to pick a hotel that has great service, a close location to where you are going to be most of the time for your meetings, and has great facilities, such as comfortable beds and clean showers.

Eat Healthy - It is very easy to eat unhealthy while on a business trip. You are always on the go and need something fast. There are temptations everywhere, even that pastry tray in the meeting room! Slowdown and take a few minutes to choose more healthy alternatives like salads, lean meats, vegetables, and drink plenty of water.

Have Fun - If you get any free time, get out and have some fun. This will relieve stress and take some pressure off of you. Take advantage of being in a new place and play tourist for a while by going to see some local landmarks, restaurants, tourist attractions, or museums.  

In part 2 of this series we look at more ways to make your business trips go as smooth as possible.
