Long flights can feel even longer when you aren’t comfortable. Wear gym shoes and plenty of layers to ensure you feel great when flying. Avoid anything restricting that could possibly induce swelling or make sitting in the middle seat especially uncomfortable.
We recommend you bring a reusable water bottle through security and immediately fill up when you get through security. It is important to stay hydrated as it can help keep you healthy when coming into contact with germs on planes and airports. Additionally, you’re more likely to feel fatigued when you’re dehydrated when traveling.
Bring your entertainment
Flights can be boring if you aren’t catching up on your sleep. Bring fully charged technology devices to stay entertained or some reading material like a book or a magazine to help you relax. This can be a great time to catch up on some work or start that book you’ve been meaning to but haven’t had the opportunity to. We recommend that you also come prepared with a portable charger in case the battery starts to run low.
Set your watch to the local time
This step is essential to seamlessly acclimate to the time zone of the destination. Upon landing, this ensures you’ll be operating on time and prevents any issues later on.
Keep a normal schedule
This means sleep when you normally sleep, try to follow a nighttime routine, brush your teeth and get some rest on the flight. Transitioning can be difficult and sticking to what you and your body know can make it easier.
Bring a sleep aid to help you get comfortable
Sleep is important and if you have issues sleeping on planes, a sleep aid can make all the difference. Bring a neck pillow and fuzzy socks too to make sleeping on a plane more comfortable.
