Planning and going on trips can be suuuuper emotional. And if you’re a freak about planning, it can be really anxiety-inducing. There are flights and buses and rental cars and hotels and Airbnbs and reservations. The list goes on and on. And if even ONE of those things goes wrong, you’re bound to have a mini meltdown about it if you get really bad travel anxiety.
The solution? Plan less. It sounds absolutely insane, but it could totally help you out. For starters, planning less of your trip could mean that there’s less expectations for you. The higher your expectations, the harder it will be when things go a little awry.
Another great option? You can find someone to iron out all of the details FOR you. Companies like Pack Up + Go will allow you to select a travel date, fill out a survey, and pick dates, and they’ll send you on a completely planned vacation. The only catch – you don’t know where you’re going.
There are plenty of ways to make your traveling a little less of a headache for yourself. But all in all? Stop planning so much. Let the trip come to you!
