When you stay away from your home – whether you are on the road for business or just for vacation – it can be tough being away from the familiarity and comforts of your own home. Many Americans report that they don’t sleep as well on the road, and, though it’s hard to quantify, many also report they just don’t feel the same level of comfort/relaxation as they do when they are in their own surroundings. This is just one of several factors that can lead people to conclude that traveling is stressful. If you’re traveling for work, maybe you just assume the stress goes with the job, but perhaps that’s a false assumption. If you are traveling for leisure, you certainly don’t want stress to cut into your relaxation time!
So when staying away from home, what are some of the best things you can do to cut down on as much stress as possible? How can you ensure you get the best night sleep that’s possible (next to being in your own bed)? As experts in the hospitality industry, we’ve seen a few things that we know help.
The most important thing to put your mind at ease is knowing that you don’t have to worry about the little things. Knowing that your room will be clean, that the staff will be helpful, friendly, and courteous means that you won’t have a nagging worry in the back of your mind that your stay could spiral out of control in a hurry.
Another important factor is having a comfortable room. A room needs to be spacious with a comfortable bed so you can spread out and get a great night’s sleep. Feeling cramped can immediately make you feel on edge and out of your element.
