Flying, some people love it and some hade it. There are plenty of ways to pass the time up in the air, reading, watching a movie or planning your upcoming trip.
It can also be the perfect opportunity to catch up on some well needed sleep, especially if you're crossing timezones or taking an early flight. Here are a few tips to help you get the rest you need.
Pick a quiet spot. A tip is to avoid the front of the plane. Many prefer to sit there, to ease the disembarkment process but beware, so do families traveling with small children as well. And it's also where the flight attendants prepare their carts. I usually prefer sitting somewhere right after the wing.
Travel in comfortable, loose clothes (except for compression stockings), and remember to always bring an extra sweater as it tends to get quite chilly on some flights.
Don't drink to much! Unlike me, who downed a large 1,5 liter bottle of water on the way to the airport as well as a pint sized pineapple/broccoli juice in the gate, it might be wise to try and stay away from liquids if you intend to sleep through you flight. Trust me, it's for the best!
Don't watch tv. It keeps your brain awake and will make it harder for you to doze off. Instead, try some relaxing music.
And finally, keep you buckle on. There is nothing more annoying than having just fallen asleep only to have to be reminded of putting on your seatbelt. Keep it on and keep it visible.
