Dealing with the stress of Thanksgiving traveling

Millions of Americans are expected to travel for the Holidays. . . and traveling can get stressful.

TYLER - With Thanksgiving only a few days away, the roads won't be as clear. One wouldn't be the only person who had to deal with airport procedures. Until one makes their destination, there's a chance they'll come across some frustrations along the way. That's why travelers like Chandler Sullivan said he's flying to California before Thanksgiving. According to Triple A, they're expecting 50 million Americans on the road or flying for Thanksgiving. 

"It's hustling and busting, everyone is going 100 miles per hour," Sullivan said. 

Sullivan said he understands how stressful the holidays can be. He described traveling as a constant mental exhaustion. 

That's why Therapet dogs were out at the Tyler Pounds Regional Airport. Dogs provided a bit of peace for travelers, even it was for a few minutes. For those who aren't flying, there are ways to cut down on the stress. 

One can download cell phone apps that help avoid traffic and pinpoint the cheapest gas. 

"I'm the type of person who likes to get there earlier than rushing," Sullivan said. 

Travelers are suggested to give themselves extra time on the road. According to Waze, a navigation app, the Thanksgiving rush hour begins as early as 10 in the morning.
