To help you prepare for Alternatives…
One of the ways to make your Alternatives experience joyous and comfortable
is to come prepared by being sure to bring what you will need with you. These
things may seem like no-brainers but we’ve had many people over the years forget
to bring things they really would have been happier having with them. So we’ve
prepared a checklist:
Pack carefully (intentionally) – Remember the
airlines are now charging for overweight bags, and most only allow one free
checked bag weighing a maximum of 50 pounds. You can still carry one bag
onto the plane in most cases.
Bring any medications that you take.
Medications could prove difficult to replace it if you don’t bring them.
C-pap machine – Keep in mind the weight
limits on luggage, but don’t leave your C-pap machine at home. Bring it if
you use one at home.
Conference rooms can get cool so you might want to
bring a sweater, fleece or wrap.
Don’t forget your toiletries – toothpaste,
toothbrush, deodorant, hairbrush, etc. Please leave
your perfume and cologne at home – other attendees may have
sensitivities to scents, and we want everyone to be comfortable.
Bring anything that makes you most comfortable such
as your pillow, journal, reading/writing materials.
We usually have access to the hotel’s pool and
fitness center, so bring a swimsuit and/or workout clothes if
you wish to use them.
- There will be a myriad of ways to be involved and engaged at the
conference. We plan lots of options, but that doesn’t mean you have to go to
everything. You don’t need to attend every workshop. This is a time for you
to also relax and make connections.
- Get enough rest, drink plenty of water and be sure to eat.
