Those linen pants may exude the beach vibe you have in mind, but by the time you arrive at your destination, they'll be creased, and it'll take a day (or some mid-vacation ironing) to get them wrinkle-free. You're better packing fabrics like rayon, lyocell, polyester, and spandex.
3.Channel some capsule wardrobe energy while you pack.
4.So you don't get too bored with your capsule wardrobe, pack a few fun accessories that don't take up much space (think: scarves, jewelry, and sunglasses).
A basic colored capsule wardrobe is probably not ideal if you're going on a beach vacation that calls for bright colors or traveling to fashion-driven cities like Paris. If that's the case, bring along a couple pieces of statement jewelry, a colorful scarf, or a pair of cute sunglasses.
5.If you're going somewhere cold, bring a jacket that folds down into nothing.
6.If you're traveling for longer than a week, pack with the expectation that you'll do a load of laundry on your trip.
7.Limit yourself to just one (maaaybe two) dressy outfits.
Remember, you're on vacation, so chances are you'll be donning a swimsuit coverup or sweatpants most days. With that in mind, limit yourself to just one or two dressy outfits (bonus if you can capsule-wardrobe your way into bringing a few staples to create two looks).
8.Pack your socks into your shoes and use smaller clothing items to cushion things like hats, heels, and collared shirts.
9.Put your shoes in shower caps or a plastic grocery bag before packing them in your suitcase.
10.If you're flying, wear an outfit that's security-friendly.
11.Put a spare outfit (and essential toiletries and medications) in your carry-on or personal item.
12.Max out your personal item when flying.
13.If you're flying and checking a bag, make sure to weigh it before you get to the airport.
Repacking your bag on the floor of the airport (or worse yet, paying extra for a "heavy" bag) is totally degrading. Avoid the drama by weighing your bag at home before you get to the airport. And if a scale isn't available to you, bring along a canvas shopping bag to stuff any overflow in.
14.Create a toiletry go bag.
15.Create an on-the-go sleep bag that has everything you need to fall asleep anywhere.
When packing your suitcase or duffle, it's essential to think about how all your lotions and potions will be stored. It seamlessly blends form and function, like in this sleek black cosmetic case, which features a hanging hook and multiple compartments that unfurl to keep all your lotions and potions easily accessible. If you prefer to always carry on when you travel, stowing your toiletries in a clear TSA-approved toiletry bag is a smart choice, so you can zip through security lines.

Merely thinking about or seeing someone yawn can make you yawn (you’re probably yawning right now). Most people yawn because they’re tired, but it can also happen unexpectedly and without any triggers. While yawning is typically harmless and only lasts about five to 10 seconds, when it occurs excessively it can actually be a symptom of a serious condition. So why exactly do we yawn? And why is it nearly impossible to stifle a yawn when someone does it in front of you? Watch the video above — and read more here — to find out.
