Thanksgiving is the busiest travel season of the year. Roughly 50.9 million people traveled 50 miles or further for Thanksgiving last year. That’s a whole lot of travelers! This year alone, I boarded 26 flights, one cruise, several trains, and 3 car trips. In other words, I have had practice in keeping my cool and staying comfortable while on the road.
If you are boarding a plane, train, or car this season, I have a few tips for you. These suggestions will help you keep your peace of mind, feel as comfortable as possible, and get you to your destination feeling refreshed. I use these tips whenever I travel, especially for work and during busy travel days. I hope you all enjoy and have a safe travel season.
I remember when I was in high school I would LOVE to shop at Express in the Short Hills Mall. When they first launched their shoe collection, I nearly fell over. I still remember the leopard print wedges I bought from them. They were the most comfortable shoes I owned.
I still shop Express, especially for their work outfits. Whenever I need a nice pair of black slacks, I immediately think of Express. Somehow the fit is always right and I know they will have plenty of options to choose from. I recently scanned Express’s selection and fell in love with some new pieces that would be perfect for the office. For this roundup, I also included a few outerwear options to get you to work warmly and in style. I may have sneaked in a couple additional looks for those after hour drinks with coworkers. Everything you may need for your work week outfit options are below, let me know in the comments which items you are lusting after!
Recently, I had gone through a rough patch emotionally and physically. Like, ya’ll we have a lot of catching up to do. But I’ll save it for another day and time, I am still learning how I can share it in away that can benefit another person or help others. I am also still very much learning and growing from all of it. I truly believe, that if you want healthy changes in your life, it begins with YOU. Or in this case, myself. And that any obstacle is meant to make you freaking fierce, stronger, and more beautiful.
I digress… anyway due to all the emotional stress, I physically started to feel off. I could barely move I was so tired. No joke, one day I did half my hair then fell back into bed to take a nap. When I “powered through” on those days I needed to show up and be in attendance, I felt this low grade nausea. On top of that, I started breaking out as if I had hit puberty again. You can imagine how much fun this was.
I had experienced these symptoms for over a month and a half before I finally asked a friend who had gone through a similar situation I had this past Summer, if this was normal. She said, “Sounds like you have adrenal fatigue, a very common side effect from trauma and stress.” I Google searched what the heck adrenal fatigue is, and turns out… I had nearly every symptom.
In this article, I am sharing what I personally learned about the disorder and what has helped me restore my health. DISCLAIMER: I am obviously not a medical doctor nor specialist in this field. It’s always best to consult with your medical practitioner before taking any supplements or changing your diet. I DO want to shed light on this disorder and what has been beneficial in my recover for those who may be struggling as well.
My first ever solo travel adventure began in Tokyo, one of the safest cities in the world. Was I scared… Of course! It was my first time ever traveling by myself for an extended amount of time, and I chose a country half way around the world. I also didn’t know one lick of Japanese. But I was also incredibly excited. Japan had been on my list of dream travel destinations for a long time, and I couldn’t believe I was boarding a plane to see the beautiful country.
In this article, I am going to run through a few things you need to know (where to stay, eat, sleep, travel time, customs & traditions) and a few places to visit if you decide to solo travel through Tokyo as well. I will also add in a few of my favorite memories from my trip, and what I would do differently next time.
