Sleeping well on a plane has developed into a certain kind of art — and into a healthy business — with savvy travelers constantly scoping out new ways to make long flights more conducive to actual rest.
Here are a few that really seem to have some payoff.
Splurge on a better seat.
Sure, not everyone can afford a premium seat in first or business class, where you can take advantage of fully- or almost-fully-reclining seats and loads of leg room.
But for long-distance flights, it can still be worth it to spend the extra money on an exit-row seat, a bulkhead seat, or a window seat.
Flying on off-peak days, like a Tuesday evening, will also increase the likelihood that the flight will be less crowded and quieter.
Do the best you can with flight times and direct flights.
While crossing many time zones always poses its own sleep challenges, do your best to pick a flight time and schedule that will sync up most naturally with your sleeping and waking times.
Having to stay home during the pandemic isn’t easy for anyone.
Even if you are getting good things from the slowed pace, or are finding unexpected joy in the quiet — this time can still be a time of restlessness, uncertainty, and anxiety.
You probably know someone (maybe yourself!) who had to cancel a destination wedding, romantic honeymoon, a summer vacation, or a trip they’d been anticipating for months or even years.
If you’re someone who loves to travel, restricted movement can feel especially discouraging.
Travel isn’t just about going places. It’s about the entire experience, the anticipation, the joy, about who you are and who you become when you visit someplace new.
There can be a real sorrow in the letting go, especially amidst so many other changes and unknowns.
One thing I’ve heard a lot of people saying is, I wish I hadn’t put off taking that trip I always wanted to take.
But believe it or not, now is a great time to be planning your post-Corona-celebration trip.
There are a few reasons that this downtime is the ideal time to give me a call and get started planning the vacation of your dreams.
