Feeling rushed is a huge stressor. So, it’s important to give yourself some breathing room. Try to arrive at the airport at least two hours early.
With extensive airport security measures, you want to give yourself enough time to check your bags, get monitored, and get settled.
You may be tempted to sleep in before a flight. Or maybe even run a last-minute errand. But, not prioritizing extra time could cause unnecessary stress and put you in a time crunch.1
And, the extra time allows you to monitor your blood sugar levels and grab any necessary food before take off.
Give yourself a little cushion, so you start your trip off smoothly.
