Travel expert James Smith reveals how to get blissful sleep while flying.
London, 25 September – Travelling can be both exciting and exhausting. For those frequent fliers or passengers on long-haul flights, sleeping on the plane can often be challenging. However, with the right strategies, one can ensure a more restful sleep while flying.
James Smith, Founder of the tours and activities booking website Travel Lingual, has put together some tips on how to get the best sleep while flying.
Smith remarked, “For those who don’t have the luxury of travelling in first class, there are numerous measures you can employ to ensure a good rest even on budget airlines.”
Select Your Seat Wisely
Opt for a window seat if possible. This not only gives you a wall to lean on but also prevents disturbance when co-passengers need to use the restroom. Aisle seats, on the other hand, may provide a bit more legroom.
Wear loose-fitting clothes made of breathable fabric. Consider layers to adjust to cabin temperature changes, and don’t forget warm socks!
An ergonomic travel pillow can prevent your head from dropping forward, offering neck support and aiding in better sleep.
Limit Light and Noise
Eye masks can block out cabin lights, and noise-cancelling headphones or earplugs can help drown out ambient noise.
Cabin air can be quite dry. Drink water before and during the flight, but avoid caffeine and alcohol as they can disrupt your sleep cycle.
Adjust to the Destination Time Zone
If you’re crossing multiple time zones, try to sleep according to your destination’s nighttime. This can help in reducing jet lag.
Limit Screen Time
The blue light from screens can interfere with the production of melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep. Consider reading a book or listening to calming music instead.
While these tips can enhance the chances of a comfortable sleep on planes, everyone’s body reacts differently. It’s essential to find what works best for you and create a personalised in-flight sleep routine.
