29. Resist The Urge To Play Your Music
Pros: Stay alert to hear announcements
What you need: Just your ears
It can be tempting to plug your headphones and blast your favorite playlist at the airport to avoid listening to the TSA announcements and other irritating sounds. But it’s best to resist the urge and stay attentive.
Airlines make announcements frequently which are important. For instance, they could offer vouchers to anyone willing to forgo their flight for the next one (this happens when they oversell a flight). Two other important announcements are delayed flights and boarding announcements. So, hold off on playing your music.
