8 Tips for Reducing Holiday Travel Stress

When Mr. BFT and I got married, we decided we would alternate Christmas visits with our families, since my family is here in California, and Mr. BFT’s family is on the east coast. Last year we stayed in California, so this year we are traveling to New England. I’m not going to lie – I am not a fan of flying, and traveling around the holidays can be a big stressful nightmare for me. I’m always fine and happy when I get to my destination, but I always wish I could snap my fingers and arrive in an instant. This year, we decided to be smart and travel on “off-peak” days, so hopefully the airport won’t be completely packed with grumpy travelers. And now that I’m self-employed, I don’t have the extra stress of getting back to my job in case there are any weather delays. I’m excited to spend some time with Mr. BFT’s family, our nieces, and try skiing for the first time!

If holiday travel stresses you out, like it does for me, I wrote up this little list of tips for reducing holiday travel stress for Momtastic. I hope you can find some good tips in here! #1 is a major lifesaver for me.
