Traveling Tips for the Long-Haul

Getting ready for a big trip? Long flight? airport_plane_Full
Prepare yourself to survive the many hours in flight with these helpful tips.

Comfy clothes are a must. Wear non-restrictive clothing with several layers. Pack a sweater for the chilly air flow and have a layer to peel off should you experience some sort of hot flash mid flight.

Prepare for hours of entertainment. Starting a full day before your long flight, be sure to charge up any and all devices that you will be taking with you. Make sure your travel battery is charged and ready to go! Download movies, books and even the latest season of your favorite TV show, and get ready to binge.

Pre-packing the essentials. Along with all of your fully-charged devices, be sure to include a neck pillow, eyemask and headphones in your carry-on. With hopes of catching a few hours of sleep, place steeped chamomile tea bags, wrapped in tissues, over your eyes before covering with eyemask. It helps keep the delicate skin under your eyes hydrated, so you can look and feel more refreshed when you land.

Hydration is key. While many may want to reach for a bottle of wine or two and cashout for the flight, drinking alcohol can actually cause some suffering and make sleeping worse. It is important to stay hydrated throughout your flight so you can sleep better and look better.

Bring some healthy snacks. Airline foods can be high in sodium causing you to suffer from more dehydration. Also, you can only move around so much on a long flight. Pack healthy snacks to keep you from reaching for high-calorie, high-carb foods in flight.

Get up and move around. During hours and hours on a flight, it is important to get up a time or two for a few minutes. Stretch out your legs, walk to the bathroom or even go stand and chat with a flight attendant, they may have some pretty interesting stories to share.
