A simple road trip can relieve our stress, elevates our mood, and helps with our overall health.

But aside from that, we also have to make sure that we are safe whenever we travel, this tips below will help you achieve a smooth and comfy road trip!

  • Take enough rest and sleep before your travel. Specially to the one who will drive the car, to avoid sleepiness that can cause road accidents.
  • Don’t drive specially when you’re tired. Reschedule your trip if you are not prepared.
  • Check your car engine. The driver should assess the car before traveling.
  • Study the direction, or map of your destination. To avoid time delays.
  • Drive safely.
  • Bring delicious and nutritious snacks. Avoid sweets, salty and oily foods.
  • Stay hydrated, bring enough water to replenish your body. Even though you are just seating in the car, you will also feel tired.
  • Have a plan on where to stop.
  • Sit comfortably, bring with you some pillows that you can put at your back to avoid back pains.
  • Don’t forget to bring important things that you will need to your destination.
  • Ask your companions about how they feel, maybe someone is already feeling uneasy? Occasionally, they just don’t want to tell it.
  • Play upbeat music to keep you entertained, avoid playing calming music when driving as it will make you feel sleepy.
