Travel Friendly Self-Care Kit
For many the holidays means traveling. You’re (most likely) out of your comfort zone, away from your normal routines, and probably experiencing a bit of stress. Regardless of the health of your relationships, traveling can bring on stress.
Be prepared! Bring along items that elicit comfort, allow for self soothing, and simply feel good.
Today I share my travel self-care kit. Perfect for the holidays or anytime you are leaving the comfort of your own space. I carry most of these items with me daily.
Ear buds: for music + podcasts
A felted stone: for something soft to ground and self-soothe
Mints: for a quick sensory experience and minty freshness
Zentangle supplies: to engage in mindful drawing
Essential Oil Towelettes: soothing scents on the go
Hand lotion: for a luxurious experience that takes seconds
Lara Bars: to avoid that hangry feeling
(not pictured) Sparkling water: an essential for me
(not pictured) My phone: to text friends, look at comforting photos and listen to the above mentioned music + podcasts
(not pictured) A small zippered bag that I carry these items in to easily transfer to whichever bag I am taking with me.
Take care of yourself this holiday season — it can be as simple as using any of these tools. Create your own toolbox and you’ll never be without your comforts.
