I have been a commuter for years now and this is my little list of essentials. 🎒
Headphones 🎧 <– [most important]
A book (or 2) 📚
Lotion & Moisturizer 🧖🏾♀️
Comfy Shoes 👟
Wallet & $$$ 💵
Backup Chargers 🔋
No matter where I’m going if it’s to work or on a personal trip I always have the items I listed above with me. Flying is so unpredictable and honestly that’s what I love about it, but you never know what will happen so being prepared for anything is important. Being a commuter is a full time job in an of itself but it’s a lifestyle I will never escape. There is a certain etiquette you become accustomed to when you travel for a living, but throwing in a pillow and anything you personally need for added comfort is always a good idea. I always pack my bag as lightweight as possible to make commuting less stressful but I don’t go anywhere without my laptop, a few downloaded Netflix movies or tv shows and a backup charger. As someone who’s bags are always packed it’s important to be prepared for the unexpected so these are the things I would consider a necessity if you travel.
