Figure out what you like and don't like based on your interests. Try and avoid FOMO (Fear Of Missing Out) Accept that you may not be able to see everything and may need to return. This can lead to burnout. Plan as much as you can but be prepared for things to not go as planned Re: COVID-19. Consider the destinations data (Confirmed Cases). Also, consider the destinations' ability to handle an increased number of confirmed COVID numbers. You don't want to be a burden on the destination's health care system. Re: COVID-19. Now is a good time to explore your own backyard Arrive at the airport early to unnecessary stress (long lines at check-ins, at security, getting to your gate etc) Before booking your flight research the Airline COVID-19 policies and procedures. Also, inquire about the Airline's return policy and/or book with a credit card or credit card with specific flight insurance. Deep Breathing & Self Talk can be helpful during turbulence - more of this in the next episode with Dr. Stacie Appel Boyar, Counselor, MSEd, LMHC as well as meditation. Embrace the destination. Don't compare it to where you came from. "When you travel, remember that a foreign country is not designed to make you comfortable.
