I was once asked how I get work done when I travel so much. My answer? I get into my routine as soon as I can. And in order for me to get into my routine, I would unpack.
Every time I arrive in a new city, I unpack all my stuff and put it away immediately. I didn't use to do that, often times leaving my luggage on the floor for up to a week and begrudgingly packing things away when I absolutely had to.
I started forcing myself to unpack on arrival because I noticed that it helped me settle in and get to my routine easily when I did. Now it's a habit. I arrive and start putting things away. I don't have much stuff so I'm done fairly quickly. I learn about my new home, where things are, I get a feel for things, and I feel settled in.
The next day I can start my day knowing where all my things are instead of digging through my bags trying to find my pen and notebook. This simple act of putting things away has allowed me to work in new places without disrupting my usual routine - even if I have jet lag. Well, maybe not if the jet lag is bad :P
I've just arrived in Wroclaw, Poland and this city is every bit as pretty as my friends claim. I'm pretty sure I'm going to have a fabulous time here. If you're around, hit me up!
