I work for a company that allows me to travel a lot, but it’s not always rainbows and sunshine to have this level of flexibility.
I spend a lot of time in my car and have had to increase my self care practices to combat the pain I experience.
I never thought I would have a monthly budget for yoga and massages! Another small thing that I had to adjust to was having to sit in front of my heater a lot during the colder traveling months. Sitting with the air conditioning blowing on my face doesn’t bother me or my face much, but I noticed that after just a couple of days of constantly running my car heater, my face was dry and screaming for moisture. I started to research ways to prevent skin dryness from using a heater often, and a blog mentioned the best thing to do is to point the car’s air vents away from your face and body. I had a hard time with this at first because it takes a while for my car heater to warm up so I would have to sit for a few minutes to feel warm before I started driving. This helped a lot but I still felt like my skin was struggling with dryness, so I started to even adjust my heater usage at home so that my skin was not always exposed to it. Using my heater less often was challenging overall, but I noticed that I was overusing it because it wasn’t as cold in my house as I thought it was.
