5 Ways Entrepreneurs Can Practice Mindfulness On Business Trips

The Ultimate in Safety, Service and Satisfaction

Traveling for business can be stressful, especially if you are an entrepreneur and footing the bill for many aspects of the trip. Planning, expenses, delays, and the travel itself can be overwhelming. Remaining mindful throughout the entire process can really help with the stress.

Mindfulness is really just as the word implies. When we are in a state of mindfulness, we are tuning into exactly what is happening in the moment. This actually takes some courage, as we don’t always want to face the present when things are feeling out of sorts. Rather than getting worked up, try these things to keep you tuned in and calm while traveling for business.


  1. Plan Well

Book your flights, hotel, and maybe some dinner reservations in advance, especially if you are going to a major metropolitan area. If you start early enough, you might be able to find some good deals or special offers.

You also want to book your ground transportation in advance. This one thing can give you tremendous peace of mind. If you are headed to Vancouver, set up your Victoria airport shuttle and Vancouver limo service on our website so that you have nothing to worry about. Our chauffeurs will take all the work out of getting around safely and comfortably during your trip.


  1. Expect Delays and Waits

Lines, waiting, traffic, delays, they all happen. Breathe and be aware that this is just part of any travel experience. Be ready by bringing some enjoyable reading material and your ear buds to listen to music. If stuck sitting in the airport, meditate at 10 to 20 minute intervals.


  1. Respect Your Diet

Eating healthy while on the road is not always easy or convenient. Do your best to honor your nutritional needs by taking the time to choose healthy food options and eating slowly. Wolfing down fast food while standing up may not serve you well.


  1. Be Kind

One of the best ways to remain mindful is to respect others and acknowledge when someone is being helpful. Thank everyone who is making sure your trip is going as planned. This is likely going to be a lot of people. Thank the people who check you in at the airport, the hotel staff, servers, etc. And be sure to compliment or thank the people you are meeting with for taking the time to see you. Being thankful means you are truly aware and in the moment.


  1. Rest and Repair

Our bodies are in repair mode when we sleep. Make a point of sticking to a sleep routine as best you can, especially after flying. While you may have to entertain or be entertained after meetings, try to stay hydrated. In other words, don’t drink too much alcohol. Excuse yourself when things look as though they might go on too long. It is perfectly acceptable to acknowledge that you have had a long day and need to be fresh in the morning. Sleep is a naturally mindful activity.
