Holiday travel rush

People who fly into a rage while traveling are par for the course these days. The holidays should be about rest and relaxation, but the stress just seems to get ratcheted up more and more each year. Everyone is in a hurry, no one wants to be patient and airplane legroom shrinks more each year.

There’s a better way — several better ways, in fact. Take time before you leave to carefully plan your trip, be prepared by packing properly, and when you get to the airport you should be able to breeze right on through to your gate. Notice the envious glances of fellow travelers who haven’t mastered the travel rush as you have. And don’t let that cranky guy sitting next to you who wants to gripe about airline add-on fees bug you. You can’t control him, but you can control how you handle stressful situations.
