Whether you are a frequent flyer or only step foot on aircraft for special occasions, it is a goal universally acknowledged  to make travel as smooth as possible. Here are 3 ways to infuse calm into your time spent in the clouds:


  1. Deep breathing is the universal secret to achieving inner peace. Slowing down your breath for just a few moments at a time can put your body into a heightened state of relaxation. After takeoff – spend 5 minutes doing conscious box breathing. You breathe in for 4 counts, hold for 4 counts, exhale for 4 counts, and again hold for 4 counts. Repeat this at minimum 3 times. On the inhale, you can enjoy the peaceful scent of lavender with Sara Joy’s Breathe Joy Lavender Pouch – and exhale your stress away.


  1. Organizing before your trip will undoubtedly ease your stress and later enhance your fun. Have you ever waited until the last minute to figure out your trip details? Nothing is scarier than realizing you need to be at the airport and you haven’t even packed yet. Spend a few minutes jotting down any info you might need depending on the logic behind your trip – hotels, dates, packing lists – in Sara Joy’s Celebrate Joy Guided Journal. Once you have organized, you can sit back and let the pages of your journal guide you. Give yourself time to dream up vacation date night spots, consider places your kids mentioned, or even meditate on your future trip. 


  1. Pare down your essentials, and your stress is sure to follow. Are you heading to an all inclusive where you won’t need much? Don’t let your materials weigh you down. Put your SPF, gloss, and sunglasses in your trusty zipper pouch. Don’t have one? Don’t worry because we’ve got you covered with our Joy Set. It comes with 2 pouches – small and large. Are you traveling for business? Organize your credit cards, business cards, pens, and all other essentials.
