2 days until traveling?

This is when you've really got to TCOB (Take care of business)!

Taking Care of Business

Yup. We said it. 2 days before you leave for a trip is the best time to do all your self-care stuff. Go to the gym. Get your legs waxed. Get a haircut or trim. Invest in a pedicure. Do some yoga. 

It's WAY too stressful to do this the night before or day of (though you can!). The last thing you want is to be trying to paint your nails and pack your bags at the same time. Ick. 

You should also start to do the transition from your day job daily routine (if you have one!). Setup your out of office reminders, let your assistant know you are traveling and remind your Manager. Send out an email summarizing the status of all of your current projects and next steps while you are away. 

Make sure your living things are cared for. If you didn't do this earlier... two days before is a good time to drop off dogs, cats, other pets at their pet care location, make sure they are stocked on food, toys etc. Take your plants to a neighbour if its an extended vacay and let your building concierge (if you live in a condo) know that you will be away, so that any packages are returned to sender while you are away.

And THAT is how you take care of business!
