How to Get Better Sleep on Your Next Business Trip

Posted on: May 15th, 2015 by MTC Limousine

limo service NY, westchester limoAre you the type of person who naturally gets keyed up when traveling on business? Or, do you ever experience insomnia at home and find that it grows more severe when you are on a trip? It’s not unusual to have difficulty falling asleep during business trips. 

Besides having to deal with jet lag, you may be worn out from the preparation for your trip and the journey itself. It can also be hard to get to sleep in a strange hotel room in an unfamiliar city. If you have any anxieties about the meetings you’re planning to attend, this can also make it harder to get the slumber you need.

A good place to start is by checking out online reviews of hotels before you make your booking. See if any guests report having bad experiences on a particular floor or room in the hotel you’re considering. 

It’s also a good idea to tell the front desk staff that you have problems with sleep and would like to get a room in the middle of the hall, located as far as possible from vending machines, elevators and stairways, noted a recent article at Road Warrior Voices. What’s more, try to get an interior room, instead of one that faces the pool or a noisy freeway.

Do you get your best sleep only when using your favorite pillow? Pack a pillow in your luggage! Besides giving you the level of firmness or softness that you desire, you can rest assured that it will smell like the detergent you use at home (or even the lack of scent if you use hypoallergenic products) instead of the perfumed detergent used by the hotel cleaning staff.

Don’t take your work to bed. This means avoid spreading printouts across the bed or reclining with your laptop while under the covers. You should also avoid eating in bed, since it’s not a good idea to go to sleep right after filling your belly.

The team at MTC Limousine hopes these tips will help you get more rest on your next trips. Getting proper amounts of sleep is important for staying healthy, which is why you will want to try these techniques to feel refreshed and raring to go.
