The confines of a flight cabin aren’t exactly synonymous with health and wellness. To ward off potential illness oozing from your coughing neighbor and to fight achy limbs and the proclivity toward bad moods, try out a few of these tips next time you’re airborne.Photo courtesy of CandyBoxImages/iStock
1. Bring a neck pillow
Tote one along so you can conk out comfy–sans the crick.
2. Bring antihistamines if you have sinus issues
There’s nothing like severe sinus headaches impounded by cabin pressure. Fight it.
3. Get up and stretch
Use trips to the WC as a chance to work out kinks.
4. Drink water
Flush toxins, stay hydrated and keep your body energized and healthy
5. Go easy on the caffeine and alcohol
Both jolt your system out of their natural rhythms
6. Use hand sanitizer
Zap those germs in their tracks!
7. Stock up on vitamin C
Prevent a bug and load up on Emergen-C
8. Unplug and relax
Take a mental break. Read a book. Look at clouds.
Give into the temptation and catch some much-needed zzz’s.
10. Take a deep breath
Travel is harsh on the body. Meditate. Rejuvenate. Get happy.
