Tips for trouble-free travel

Tomorrow will be the busiest air-travel day of the year, with over 27 million travelers hitting the friendly—or not so friendly—skies to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.

If your holiday plans involve a plane ride or two, the following tips will help you arrive refreshed, relaxed, and (relatively) stress-free.

  • Leave for the airport extra-early so you won't have to rush, taking into account extended parking, checkin, and security check times. If you wind up having time on your hands at the airport, it's a great chance to catch up on the latest hot reads, such as Eat, Pray, Love and The Daring Book for Girls.
  • Remember the TSA allowances for fluids in carry-on luggage (3-ounce or smaller containers sealed in a quart-sized zip-top bag) to avoid unnecessary delays in security.
  • Drink plenty of water before, during, and after your flight, as air travel can be extremely dehydrating.
  • Treat your body to a relaxing stretch when you get to where you're going; check out FitSugar's easy stretches for banishing post-flight stress.
Happy—and safe—travels, girls!
