6 Tips for Any Business Woman Traveling Alone

6 Tips for Any Business Woman Traveling Alone

A great number of people get nervous or anxious when it comes to traveling alone, whether for business or just for pleasure. And with the increasing number of single women travelers across the world, being prepared to face and overcome all types of traveling issues is essential, and even more important if it’s your first time doing it.

So here are some useful tips to consider if you want to make your solo traveling experience a more pleasant one.

First things first:

1. Know Where You Are Going

Surf the internet a little bit about your destination; search for things like food, dress code, the weather, and laws of the country you are visiting, as these differ greatly throughout the world. If you are already there and need some directions, instead of asking local people, try asking the hotel staff – they will help you avoid places that are deemed as unsafe.

2. Choose Accommodation Wisely

Search for the location, rooms available, services, menu options, and then the price. You can find some great deals using online services like (my favorite) airbnb.com. One great piece of advice is speaking with the hotel manager before booking if you’re interested in staying — they will offer you a better service, and might even offer some extra deals. Who knows, you may be treated so well on your travels, or fall in love with one of your destinations, that you need to sell your California house fast.

If traveling to a big city:

  1. Avoid taking taxi cabs. They may seem like a cheap and quick option, however, you won’t know if they are taking the correct way or if they are even safe. A far better option is renting a car or booking in advance with legitimate companies online. There are some great private airport transportation services in which you don’t need to shop around because their agents already do it for you.
  1. Know the best city areas and locations. You should avoid visiting insecure neighborhoods or areas. In big cities like Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, etc., there are many unsafe areas, so it’s recommended that you do some online research about them, and be aware when you get to your destination.
  1. Be patient. You’d better be physically and mentally prepared for long lines, large crowds, and many people trying to do or see the same things that you want. Anger and stress just won’t make things get better, so you need to get used to it and enjoy the rest of the trip.
  1. Avoid expending too much money on “fancy stuff.” There are many money-saving tips you can do like planning your everyday meals (where to go, how much to spend, etc.) and maybe try to eat by the season. There are many people who enjoy eating in elegant restaurants and spending lots of money eating while traveling, but if you are not one of those people you better save some money (and calories) having less fancy snacks.

3. Keep Your Wallet Light and Your Documents Safe

If your travel documents get lost, they can cause you a lot of trouble. Try keeping a credit card, this way you won’t carry too much cash in your wallet; also have a backup one with you if the other one gets lost and use it to pay for your expenses.

To keep all things safe and out-of-sight, try getting a money belt; they can be worn under your clothes to keep a passport, credit cards ,or cash. You can search for them online in places like eBay for different colors and styles.

Lastly, leave all return travel tickets, papers, and immigration documents at your hotel’s safety box. They are safer there, you won’t be carrying them around everywhere, and they hold no monetary value (so no reason for anyone to steal them). Also, avoid bringing expensive jewelry when possible, as this will be a magnet for thieves.

4. Pack Light

Seriously? You don’t need all those clothes if you are going on a business trip. To help you travel lighter, try getting a practical garment bag; they are pretty useful when it comes to these kinds of trips. And don’t worry, you can always mix and match the same clothes and accessories to make them look like a completely different outfit.

5. Dress for the Occasion and with Modesty

Try wearing what the local women tend to use and dress accordingly to avoid possible harassment. Remember that safety is always first, and in some places, you need to consider laws and regulations surrounding your attire. After all, the last thing you want to do is offend other people by dressing inappropriately.

You should also consider taking comfortable outfits, and some according to your destination’s weather.

And lastly:

6. Always Trust your Gut

Relax, your gut is very wise and will get you out of many situations. But remember to be careful with strangers; do not trust people too quickly – we all know that sometimes we start trusting people before we should.

Heeding this advice will ensure that you are safe and secure in your travels, but remember to stay in touch with your loved ones and let them know how and where to locate you.

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

10 Reasons Why You Should Get Naked More Often

Getting naked is often thought of as an act that should only be reserved for intimacy—and even then some get squirmy! Many people are more comfortable believing that the more clothes you are wearing the better. However, getting naked more often can have great benefits for you. Here are 10 great reasons to get naked more often:

1. It burns more fat.

Your body’s main supply of brown adipose tissue (BAT), or good fat cells, are located around your shoulder blades and neck. When your body is exposed to the elements and is cooler, the BAT proliferates and essentially kills the white adipose tissue, aka bad fat cells. So, not wearing any clothes helps promote this and makes you healthier.

2. You’ll become comfortable with who you are.

Self-acceptance is hard to come by today. Ask anyone you know and see if they are happy with themselves. Chances are they will say they are too fat, not pretty, and find all of the flaws that they can. In reality, others do not see this. They see that you are beautiful. When you begin to get naked, you learn to appreciate your body and realize how beautiful you really are.

3. It saves you money.

Being naked more often saves on buying new clothing since you are wearing nothing a lot of the time. Be careful when you are in public, though—you may have to put on some clothes!

4. It increases your immune system.

Being naked and getting exposure to the sun’s rays actually increases your body’s vitamin D levels. Vitamin D is directly related to your immune system. When you have optimal levels of vitamin D, your body’s immune system is impeccable, and you will be better equipped to ward off viruses, including the common cold and flu. So go lay outside naked on your private balcony or in your yard.

5. It makes you face your fears head on.

People cringe today when you mention the words “get naked.” They are so afraid of it—and today’s children are so ingrained with this—that they must wear layer upon layer to deal with their body image. However, when you are naked, you face your fears of body image and self-acceptance, experiencing some of the best moments of your life.

6. You will feel better in your clothes.

When you do wear clothes (because not everyone has yet accepted being naked in public), you will start to choose clothing that accentuates the parts of your body that you love. You will begin to notice that maybe that muumuu does not flatter your beautiful curves and start wearing clothes that you love.

7. You will embrace vulnerability.

When you put yourself out there, it is a natural reaction to have fear and worry. However, this is an opportunity to embrace being vulnerable. It allows you to think and get down to the core of what really matters and what is of importance to you. When you strip away all of the excess, you are 100% you and willing to take on anything that comes your way.

8. You will show the world the real you.

Today, we have many ways of altering our appearance from our true body image when we wear clothing. Some people alter their image so much that they fear getting naked with the person they love. It seems crazy that this could even happen; however, the rise in use of breast-enhancing bras and Spanx products has put this idea into people’s minds. This all goes back to being comfortable with your true body image. If a person really does love you, then they should not love you based upon your image. If they do, then you may even decide that the ever-so-uncomfortable leggings that go up above your waist to hold in all of the imperfections may not be worth it after all.

9. You will have fun.

Well, this could go in all sorts of directions. But when you are comfortable with your naked body and see it as being flattering, then life is more fun. You start realizing that you are beautiful and are willing to do more things that you probably would not have done otherwise—with and without your clothes on.

10. You can have intercourse with the lights on.

Many people are self-conscious about the way they look and decide that the less lighting the better when they are intimate with their partner. It’s nothing new. If you survey your best friends, you will probably come to this conclusion too. They may say that it even gets awkward, because they are more concerned with what their partner thinks of their body than just having and enjoying amazing intercourse. When you love the way you look naked, you will also want to have your partner see you at your best.

What are you waiting for? Start spending more time in the buff today and begin to change the way you think about your body.
