When on long flights, it is essential to get yourself as comfortable as possible so that you can have a kind, relaxing journey. No one wants to be on the plane, especially when there is a stressful situation for any uncomfortable part of the trip.
I've been on many long flights in my life, and I have a number of things I always do, to make my trip as enjoyable as I can.
The first thing I do when boarding a long flight is to take off my shoes. Personally, I feel great relief when I can take my shoes, as I can stretch my toes, get the flow flowing again again, and it's just a great feeling.
Talking about getting the flow going, it's also important to stretch your legs. I do it just going to stroll along the island every few hours. Obviously, you do not want to keep walking across people, as there is trying to sleep, but it really can not be helped. If you need to disguise it, put yourself in position on the spot then you should go for a walk and go to the bathroom. Go to the bathroom and provide your feet to click just to have some life back to them again. Do this every few hours if possible. It also prevents the appearance of DVT, or deep cork and green. On this note, if you need to go to the bathroom often, try not to sit in the nearest seat to the window, as it will prove very frustrating for the passengers sitting close to you if they have to get up on your target every few minutes.
Drink a lot of fluids, no doubt careful to avoid alcohol, as it had the opposite effect on what we want as it will cause dehydration. The body needs liquids at regular intervals. It's amazing how many people think, just make sitting on a plane and not go around too much because they do not have to take on water. Your body consists mostly of water, and if you do not get enough you will feel terrible, and even worse can end up in a difficult situation. Not only water, but it is also a good idea to bring some snacks on the plane as well. I am not a fan of airplane food, so I will try to bring healthy food to myself and snack if possible. Usually, I will bring a large package of cashew nuts, as I like the taste, and they usually fill me and keep me going for a long time. Sandwiches are also a good idea as well as biscuits, although there is of course not too healthy, depending on the type.
Another thing that makes time to fly is to bring together some sort of entertainment. Although no body wants to be on a plane twiddling their thumbs for an 8 hour drive. I hope, if you are lucky, your flight has a featured movie, or with a screen on the back of the chair in front of you, or on the film wall. If not, and if you are financing properly, bring your movie, which you can watch on your phone or in your personal media player. If the movies are not yours, listen to music. Personally, I'm tired of listening to music after a while, so I'll bring along some comedy MP3 clips. The people around me think they might have some local nut with them laughing at any moment, but at least I enjoy my trip, and I'll try not to laugh too loud.
If you do not have the means to watch a movie or listen to MP3 & s, why not bring together a magazine, newspaper or book. I'm a big fan of reading, so I'll bring all kinds of literature that I have especially because of it.
Even the best of us can struggle to entertain ourselves for lengths at a time, so another option is to just catch up a little rest, and fall to sleep. To give yourself maximum comfort, get a neck support pillow. If you are having trouble sleeping because of the noise made by others around you, get yourself an eye mask to block the light, and purchase a set of noise canceling headphones that will help minimize the noise pollution around you. Who would think you could be comfortable on a plane?
If you have a disease in motion, you should know the steward before they can keep an eye on you, and so that they will be ready in case you need attention. If possible, it is also a very good idea to get fatigue fatigue corrections or take the pill disease.
Not many people have a lot of choice about where they sit on the plane, as assigned a certain line on the flight, but if you kick a big enough commotion, and the place is not completely full, you may be able to move move move. It is perfect if you have a baby crying close to you, not what you need in a long flight.
Also, try to avoid sitting near the bathroom as mentioned above in this article. This is because it is a communal area. People will gather around the toilet as they wait for their turn. They may open a conversation, lean on your seat, all of them very upsetting if you try to relax.
Finally, if you sit on the nearest seat to the island, be sure to keep your legs and arms clear from the island, the last thing you need is a carriage to greet like I did on my last flight, Ouch.
