Even though travel is something which is intended to be relaxing and leisurely, often people wind up being incredibly tense throughout the process. Tensions can be high, and there can be a lot of pressure to meet deadlines (has anyone else had to sprint across an airfield to get on a Jettly flight on time?), get in every activity that you want to do, and of course, navigate your way through a place which you aren't familiar with. In order to enjoy your trip and maximize your time, it's in your best interest to limit your stress levels and enjoy your trip rather than worrying.   When it comes to the biggest reasons why people tend to stress when they travel here are the most common and how to avoid them.  

Not Arriving Early Enough

  Leaving things until the last minute is never in a good idea. Most airlines recommend you to get to the airport at least two hours before your scheduled boarding time. That means that you should factor in the time that it takes you to get to the airport in addition to that two-hour window.   Arrange a ride with plenty of time to spare so that you arrive comfortably without worrying. While you may end up waiting for a while if things go smoothly and there are no interruptions, it's a lot less stressful than experience a delay or hitting traffic. Always arrive with plenty of time to anticipate challenges.  

Missed Connections

  Sometimes things are out of our control when flying. Whether a plane has a technical issue or there are air traffic conditions which prohibit the aircraft from taking off at its scheduled time, sometimes flights are late.   While this isn't usually an issue for people who are traveling to their final destination, people who have connections to make at the next destination can miss their flight. As a result, people start getting angry and anxious, and their whole trip begins to turn sour. Since it's out of your control, the best thing you can do is to try to stay positive and find a solution rather than focusing on the problem.  

Traveling With Family

  Sometimes traveling with the people, we love the most can be the most excruciating. Even though we may love them, we may be more likely to argue with them and get on each other's nerves.   If you are traveling with family, try to set some time apart during the trip for you to have some time alone.  

Lack Of Language

  When you're traveling somewhere which doesn't speak the same language as back at home, it can be frustrating to try to ask basic questions when you arrive.   Rather than getting angry, try to familiarize yourself with some basic phrases before you go. You'll find that people are much more likely to help you if they see you're making an effort.
