Lower Back Pain while Traveling:
Traveling for work isn’t fun, but you realize its a must to get you in front of people, and in meetings, needed to advance your career.
Thankfully, you have your flying routine down to a science for maximum recharging, especially on those long international flights.
Step 1: Settle into your seat and immediately slather your favorite moisturizer on your face and hands to prevent them from drying out and looking parched.
Step 2: Set your cell phone alarm, don your favorite sleep mask and skip the food and in-flight entertainment for some z’s, because even though its only 9 pm where you’re at, its already 2 am where you’re going.
Step 3: Wake an hour before landing, refresh with some water and then change into your power suit for that day’s meeting.
