Traveling With A Group? You Are Doing Things Wrong Until You Read This!

Traveling With A Group? You Are Doing Things Wrong Until You Read This!

Are you the one who manages all travel plans for the office? Friends or family get together? You can also be someone who likes to go to watch games, concerts, and parties in the group so that you can enjoy with as many people as you can.

Particularly students or young professionals tend to move in groups of 4 to 5 people instead of being a loner on parties or games.

If you are someone who likes to move in groups, here are some interesting tips for you to travel in groups:

1. Renting vs getting a hired transport

The most basic question for you to decide should be whether you go for renting the large car or arrange the ground transportation.

If you are traveling in a group of 4 to 6 persons on a tight budget, renting a car may be a costly affair. You pay for parking, insurance, and off-course the gas which you will be paying from your own pocket.

Renting vs getting a hired and driver driven transport may be a good cost-effective option for you if you calculate the costs diligently.

2. Get group transport for Airport Drops, events, and games

You have a lot of choices when it comes to airport drops especially during the holidays. You can hire uber car to take you to the airport- that certainly is a cost-effective way for a limited number of persons.

If the whole family is going for holidays, hopping onto small cars may not a good option. You may need extra help in the shape of loading and unloading your baggage, no parking fees and above all, you will be stress-free as someone else will be doing it for you at the same price.

Playing and watching ice-hockey is a craze in Canada- same like people in India watch cricket.

They move in groups to reach the stadium and watch the games while chatting, dancing and singing with their dear ones.

So if you are in Canada and want to see a Vancouver Canucks game, you may need to arrange group transport. Same goes for almost any event in any part of the world where you may plan to go out in groups and will require group transport.

3. Peace of Mind

Probably the biggest advantage of group travel is the peace of mind you get. You do not have to arrange many things as a lot of stuff is taken care of easily by others.

You can get a lot of flexibility when traveling abroad with the group as many things are either taken care of the tour arrangers or group members contribute to complete the tasks. You can even easily delegate the task of your bags being carried by others while you enjoy the journey en route to your hotel.

4. You pay lower tips

Another advantage of traveling with the group is that you pay lower tips and other costs can even be distributed.

Tips in groups, however, are not just limited to the tips you pay in hotels or other places. You are also expected to pay tips to your group leader, chauffeur of your limo if you hired one, local guides and other persons.

The cost however, is distributed and you pay less.

5. Catering/Food costs are distributed

Catering is another key area where you save a lot of money. Corporate Catering offered to groups are already offered at a lesser price.

Group catering is great because it reduces the cost and you can enjoy different items in the menu instead of being limited due to your food budget.

If you are moving to a place where you already have been, try to stick with one supplier or provider as long term relationships certainly pay off in terms of low prices and additional menu items with no extra charges.

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

How to Tap Into the Power of Positivity

As it appears, the human mind is not capable of not thinking, at least on the subconscious level. Our mind is always occupied by thoughts, whether we want to or not, and they influence our every action.

“Happiness cannot come from without, it comes from within.” – Helen Keller

When we are still children, our thoughts seem to be purely positive. Have you ever been around a 4-year old who doesn’t like a painting he or she drew? I haven’t. Instead, I see glee, exciting and pride in children’s eyes. But as the years go by, we clutter our mind with doubts, fears and self-deprecating thoughts.

Just imagine then how much we limit ourselves in every aspect of our lives if we give negative thoughts too much power! We’ll never go after that job we’ve always wanted because our nay-saying thoughts make us doubt our abilities. We’ll never ask that person we like out on a date because we always think we’re not good enough.

We’ll never risk quitting our job in order to pursue the life and the work of our dreams because we can’t get over our mental barrier that insists we’re too weak, too unimportant and too dumb. We’ll never lose those pounds that risk our health because we believe we’re not capable of pushing our limits. We’ll never be able to fully see our inner potential because we simply don’t dare to question the voices in our head.

But enough is enough! It’s time to stop these limiting beliefs and come to a place of sanity, love and excitement about life, work and ourselves.

So…how exactly are we to achieve that?

It’s not as hard as it may seem; you just have to practice, practice, practice. Here are a few ideas on how you can get started.

1. Learn to substitute every negative thought with a positive one.

Every time a negative thought crawls into your mind, replace it with a positive thought. It’s just like someone writes a phrase you don’t like on a blackboard and then you get up, erase it and write something much more to your liking.

2. See the positive side of every situation, even when you are surrounded by pure negativity.

This one is a bit harder to put into practice, which does not mean it’s impossible.

You can find positivity in everything by mentally holding on to something positive, whether this be family, friends, your faith, nature, someone’s sparkling eyes or whatever other glimmer of beauty. If you seek it, you will find it.

3. At least once a day, take a moment and think of 5 things you are grateful for.

This will lighten your mood and give you some perspective of what is really important in life and how many blessings surround you already.

4. Change the mental images you allow to enter your mind.

How you see yourself and your surroundings make a huge difference to your thinking. It is like watching a DVD that saddens and frustrates you, completely pulling you down. Eject that old DVD, throw it away and insert a new, better, more hopeful one instead.

So, instead of dwelling on dark, negative thoughts, consciously build and focus on positive, light and colorful images, thoughts and situations in your mind a few times a day.

If you are persistent and keep on working on yourself, your mind will automatically reject its negative thoughts and welcome the positive ones.

And remember: You are (or will become) what you think you are. This is reason enough to be proactive about whatever is going on in your head.
