No matter how much time you spend on a plane, you might want to take a nap during the trip. Unfortunately, comfort is not always optimal. Here are 5 tips to help you sleep better on your next flights.
5. Take a sleeping pill
A sleeping pill will allow you to sleep like a baby for three to four hours. When you will wake up, you will not even feel the effects. For a traveler who has difficulty sleeping on the plane, this option of last resort can be very effective, especially for a night flight. However, be careful not to create a habit.
4. Do not sleep a lot the day before
This option may not be the healthiest but can still be effective. Spending a sleepless night is not the best idea, but sleeping only four or five hours will allow you to get on the plane already tired. Therefore, it will be easier to fall asleep. Make sure you have enough time on the plane to make up for lost sleep to start your journey on the right foot.
3. Have a drink or two
For many travelers, stopping at the bar before flying is already a habit. After a few drinks, the flight is always more enjoyable, especially if you are able to sleep all the way through the trip. However, sure to drink responsibly and respect other travelers and flight attendants.
2. Choose the seat next to the window
When you have the option of choosing your seat, select the one next to the window. You will be sure to have a place to rest all along your journey. If you are sitting in the center or next to the aisle, just ask the person sitting next to you the permission to lean against his or her shoulder.
