I just recently came back from a business trip. My territory is rather large (1/4 OF THE STATE!!). Traveling for work can be fun, but when I get back to my hotel room…not so glam anymore.
Things that can make your trips more enjoyable!
- Make use of your free time: Alone time = Spa night!! Whhhhat!?!: I’ve been dying to do an at home spa night. While having to care for the house, cook and wanting to spend time with my husband at the end of a long day it can be hard to break away. I decided to bring calming lavender bath salts and a relaxing lavender face mask with me. It was perfect! (BUT WAIT!….make sure you wipe down that bath tub. You don’t know who’s hairy butt sat there before yours. GROSS!) When I checked into my room I immediately ordered room service and some wine! (Much needed glass of wine!) I prepped the tub, put on my mask and waited for my dinner. It was so relaxing and I slept like a baby! I was exhausted from traveling all day.
- Visit near by attractions: For me this means shopping LoL! I went to the mall. It took my mind off of work and missing home. This mall had a Sephora! (Beauty Heaven Headquarters!) I got some really great things.
- Okay Okay…so you’re not a shopper? What about catching up on some reading?!? Bring a good book and dive in.
- Bring a little something from home. For example, my husband and I like to diffuse lavender essential oils at night, (can you tell I like lavender?!?) so I brought some pillow mist to remind me of home. You can also bring some photos of loved ones. I like looking at a familiar face, don’t you?
The week flew by. I got a lot of great things done with work and I really enjoyed my me time after hours.
Until next time!
