How to cope with a sleepy traveller*

Step 1: Try to determine the cause of the sleepiness. Did they not get enough sleep? Did they have a long day? Are they bored because of the lack of stimulating conversation? Learning the cause behind the current sleepiness is the first step to dealing with it. 


How to cope with a sleepy traveller*

Step 1: Try to determine the cause of the sleepiness. Did they not get enough sleep? Did they have a long day? Are they bored because of the lack of stimulating conversation? Learning the cause behind the current sleepiness is the first step to dealing with it. 

Step 2: Provide them with time and space. Give them some time to get a quick power nap in if possible. Enjoy the moment; take a selfie you can both enjoy later.

Step 3: Retreat to your own personal space or activity (e.g. Instagram the photo of them sleeping) to allow them time to sleep or get some caffeine. Try to stay engaged in your own activity while your partner works through their sleepiness.

Step 4: Offer your support and listen if they want to talk. Talk about what you’d both like to do next. Time to call it a day and get some proper sleep? Or can the day be salvaged and it’s time for some activities?

Step 5: Consider what to do in the future to prevent further sleepiness in the days ahead. Think back to their moods over the previous month to see if you recognize a pattern of this type of sleepy behavior.

Happy “together” travels, people. And as they say: It will either make you or break you!

    What's with the puffy look in the first picture? Looks really silly. Teenagers do that a lot.
