We all know that flying long distances can be very uncomfortable and even painful. With all the noise happening around you, the upright seats which seem to get as hard as stone by the end of the trip, and the list goes on. Luckily there are some things that we can do to make our flights (especially our longer flights) more comfortable.
Below are 5 tips to make your flight more comfortable and ultimately more enjoyable.
Wear Comfortable Clothing
Sometimes we concentrate on looking presentable and don’t think about comfort. Ever been at an airport and you see someone wearing sweat pants and a comfortable looking sweater or fleece? You think to yourself, that must be so comfortable. So why not wear these clothes too?
Airlines these days often do not provide pillows for their passengers. This is why it is so important for you to bring your own. A travel pillow can help you sleep better as well as possibly preventing soreness in the neck.
In another cost cutting exercise by airlines to fit more seats in a plane, they have made the seats narrower. So if you are overweight and sometimes even just a little, this can make the seat a tight squeeze. Try using weight loss shakes for a few days before your flight for that little bit of extra comfort.
Bring A Good Travel Mask And Ear Plugs
These are things that many people do not think of until it is too late. You are about to go to sleep on the plane and see other people putting on their face mask and ear plugs and then it hits you. Why didn’t I bring those too? A good travel mark can help you sleep by dimming the light around you and can help you sleep at any time. Same goes for the ear plugs, there is a lot of noise in a plane, ear plugs sure do help.
Bring Something To Do
Often we concentrate so much on bringing our passports, and make sure we pack everything. Then we forget about something to do on the plane. Luckily, many planes these days have personal screens on the back of each seat so you can watch movies. But, there are still many planes flying today that have no entertainment system at all. So bring a iPad or something similar.
