What should you bring on the plane to spend cozy time?

Many people have difficult enjoying their time on the flight with many reasons like turbulence, anxious feeling, uncomfortable seats. Also, you may experience time difference.

First, you should consider the time zone you are flying into. You have to adjust your schedule before your flight to align with the time zone of your destination. For example, you can set your watch to the time in your destination’s time zone before boarding the plane. After boarding, you can try to sleep, eat accordingly. It is important to eat according to your new time zone, which can speed up the adjustment.

Second, you can make your own sleep hygiene amenity kit. It will take more effort, however, making your own business class-inspired amenity kit helps you to feel you are sitting on the business class seat. So, what stuff you should put in the kit? You need earplugs or noise-canceling headphones and an eye mask. We need to avoid the stimuli on the plane because it can easily interrupt sleep. Ear plugs or noise-canceling headphones help to regulate the cabin pressure and lessen the potential for ear pain.

You can bring a small vial of lavender essential oil to rub onto your temples to attempt to fall asleep faster and to feel relaxation and calmness. Otherwise, you can use Melatonin gummies. Short-term melatonin use may help shift your circadian rhythm before your travel to make it easier to fall asleep on the plane and adjust to the time zone in your new destination. However, just keep in mind that it is better to consult your doctor for the right timing and dosage.

Third, do you enjoy drinking caffeine or alcohol to pass the time on the plane? However, you should avoid the temptation to keep you hydrated and make it a whole much easier to fall asleep when it is time for lights out. So, what is the other option? It is herbal tea to achieve a soothing effect and sleep better on the plane.

Next, you need to dress comfortably on long flights. You can put off your shoes and put on warm compression socks and foldable travel slippers after takeoff. It will reduce pressure on the feet and your body can think you are cozying up at home.

Last, don’t forget your neck pillow. Neck pillows could be bulky to carry around while traveling. However, the right ones make a huge difference in terms of sleep quality and ensuring your neck and back. There are some neck pillows which are designed to pack down into your carry-on while not in use.
