Whether you're a frequent flier who travels reg­ularly for work or just an occasional vacationer, you don't have to give up on all your health and fitness goals when you are on the road. Firstly, it is advisable to drink two 8-ounce glasses of water before boarding your plane. Secondly, some people say as well that if you keep drinking wa­ter on the plane, it will help to avoid dehydra­tion. It's also better to plan to arrive at your destination during the day so that when you get there you can take advantage of remaining day­light to do something active outside. That also helps lessen jet lag. Finally, wise people exercise at least every third day to keep their energy lev­el up and perform at least a third of their typi­cal aerobic routine.

What makes a person travel well? In an age when an international voyage is as easy as it is unset­tling, people need a variety of skills to cope with the unknown. Simple country information is not enough. You should combine traditional security awareness, cross-cultural, and interpersonal skills in order to develop the right attitude and the right approach for a successful journey. It is about much more than security. It is also about being clear with yourself about who you are and what resources and limitations you bring with you. You should have a clear idea about how to operate successfully in our new and sometimes dangerous cross-cultural world. With a solid un­derstanding of your strengths and weaknesses you can explore strategies for minimizing the risk and maximizing the gain in your travels.

The St. Eugene Mission was built in 1910 in the Canadian West for teaching and assimilating four Indian tribes — forcefully at times — into Western society. For 60 years about 5,000 stu­dents had been taught at the St. Eugene Mission. Then it was closed in 1970 after the Canadian government changed educational policies for First Nations children. Several former students wanted to erase painful memories of the place and pushed for the building to be destroyed. In­stead, it became a resort: now the St. Eugene has a golf course, 25 rooms, four restaurants and plenty of nearby outdoor activities. One part lux­ury hotel, one part history lesson, the St. Eugene Mission Resort is set among the funky towns and ski resorts of southeast British Columbia. Sum­mer rates for a standard room begin at about $134.

A trip to the United States has to be a top con­tender for European families this year. Notwith­standing higher prices for airfare and gasoline. The U.S. dollar's continued slide (nearly 20% versus the Euro since April 2006 and more than 45% since 2004) makes a family vacation in the United States a bargain. Resorts and activities that once seemed out of reach are today a steal. Don't forget to bring an extra suitcase. The sav­ings on fall school shopping (or next year's sum­mer wear) may just cover the cost of a plane ticket!

The adventure of travelling is sometimes stress­ful. Booking flights and hotels is the very least of all that is involved — you also have excur­sions to plan such as sightseeing tours, hiking, biking, sailing, and dining out at unique restau­rants. All of this must be planned in the native

tongue of the country you have travelled to and paid for in their currency. Many times this rep­resents a splitting headache to those travellers who do not want to feel like they are always planning and negotiating. Thankfully, there are such vacations where every meal is paid for, gra­tuity is included, excursions have been planned and paid for by the resort or cruise line and the traveller need only enjoy the ride or hike for that matter. Before spending all your travel money on your flights and hotel learn for free from one of our travel experts about planning an all-inclusive vacation. But you should learn how to customize such a vacation package and what to expect upon arrival.

What Makes People Happy?

Would winning the lottery make you happy? Not like­ly. According to David G. Myers, a happiness researcher, money does not buy happiness. Rich people are no more

happy than 1              .

In addition, older people are neither less nor more happy than young people. And men have no advantage over women. So who is happy?

Only about 10—15 per cent Americans identify them­selves as truly happy. Certain personality traits, such as extroversion, agreeableness, and conscientiousness, are related to happiness. However, in the right situation, anyone can be happy.

Psychologist Mihaly Brown has observed that

             when their work and

leisure life provide them opportunity to use their skills. Somewhere between the anxiety of being overwhelmed and the apathy of being bored is the ideal mix called "flow". Happy people have more flow. They are appropri­ately challenged in ways that allow them to personally contribute.

Happiness has also been linked to meaningful relati­onships. Individuals who are happy are supported

            3          . Such relationships

help fulfil our need to belong to something bigger than ourselves. The network of friends and family also pro­vides us with opportunities to help or be helped. If we are to maintain a healthy balance in life, we will eventu­ally need help from others. Perhaps this partly explains the finding that married individuals, both male and fe­male, are on average happier than single individuals.

So, 4   , forget the lot­tery tickets, look to your network of friends and family and use your skills to make a difference at home and at work. It has been said that if you smile, the world smiles with you. 5        can dramati­cally influence how people interact with us. When we are happy, we draw people to us and develop a greater sup­port system. Even a brief exchange of smiles connects us momentarily to others.

Participating in a club, a church group, or commu­nity group can create many opportunities. It can

for service, and provide a meaningful cause or purpose to which you can contribute your skills.
