In It For The Long-Haul
Chances are if you’re reading this then you’ve landed on this page because you’re a frequent flyer, or you’re about to embark on a long haul and unsure how to tackle the pre-flight preparation.
Flying long haul can be draining and tiring, we’re not going to beat around the bush with that one. Regardless if you manage to get to sleep or you’re the ‘no no I don’t need to sleep, I’ll be fine’ type, the jet lag will eventually hit and you’ll feel worse than a tired mother with a sick baby on her hands.
Air on-board is very dry and the first place to notice this is your lips. So if they’re drying up chances are your skin is too. Pop a face mask on shortly before landing and your skin will be looking smooth and glorious in no time.
There’s a reason Netflix invented their rolling series algorithm, because nothing passes time faster than absorbing yourself in gripping TV show. Load up your laptop or tablet before setting off and before you know it, it’s time to descend.
Bring Your Own Snacks!
As much as opening those little packets between movies to munch on are as exciting as the flight gets, some of us do have intolerances and there is only so many bags of peanuts we can endure. So pack your favourite cereal bars, graze boxes and fruit mixes before you board!
Adjust your Body Clock
A few days before you set off, try to adjust your body clock. If you’re heading east, (assuming you’re in Europe), try to get up each day 30 minutes to an hour earlier and get to bed that little bit earlier too. And if you’re heading west, do the opposite. Goodbye jet-lag!
