Holidays are fantastic, a real chance to take a break from the daily routin, kick-back, and relax. If only getting there was not such an ordeal! There can be an incredible amount of work involved in getting ready to go on holidays and packing the cases is one of the top culprits in pushing up the stress scale.
Altman luggage have some great tips that will make it easier, setting you on the path to relaxation, before you even go.
The first trick is to accept that you can’t bring everything. Arm yourself with this acceptance and you won’t engage in useless packing endeavours. A little research on the weather will help too. See what kind of clothes you need and avoid bringing ones you won’t wear. If needs be, buy another jumper over there if you need it. Roll up your clothing into the case and pack in the order you will take it out. Last, but not least (and hardest to do) is not to leave it until the last minute. Start gradually a few days in advance and leave yourself some thinking time before you go for unexpected things.
Put it into practice this year, and if it’s too late, ponder how you will put this strategy into action then next time around.
