Travel Tips – Part 2
Tips for Smooth Security Screening
Airport security is here to stay. We could all be more relaxed if each of us prepared mindfully for security screening. If we plan ahead, we reduce discombobulation time for everyone.
If you travel frequently, it’s worth your time to get in the TSA Pre-check program. This will minimize the undressing and unpacking at security. If you travel infrequently by air, here are a few ideas to minimize the hassle. These will generally get you through most airports, however, a few countries do have slightly different procedures. For example, in Europe, solid deodorant goes in the liquids bag.
Be fashionable AFTER security
Be mindful and pick up ALL your belongings before going to the gate. If you are with someone and chatting, it’s easy to become distracted and forget an item.
Use the time you are standing in line to check yourself for compliance. Why not take your jacket off and check your pockets while standing in line rather than waiting until you are putting things in trays? This will speed up the process for everyone.
