Most of us have a difficult time falling asleep on a plane, especially because of such an uncomfortable position.
People who do fall asleep are really lucky.
So take a look at these secrets for better sleep:
#1. Night is the best time for a flight
Pick a flight for the time you usually sleep at.
#2. The best days are Tuesday and Wednesday
Pick unpopular days if you want fewer passengers.
#3. The perfect seat is at the window
Pick window seat to rest your head on the wall and not be bothered by your neighbor.
#4. Tilt the back of your seat to the max
Make sure the person behind doesn’t mind and tilt the back of your seat as much as you can.
#5. Clothes should be warm and comfortable
Wear loose clothes that don’t hamper your movements.
#6. Fasten your seat belt over your clothes
A seat belt fastened over your clothes or blanket won’t make your sleep more comfortable, but it will prevent flight attendants from waking you up if the plane experiences turbulence.
#7. Sleep accessories
Light and noise are the main factors that prevent you from falling asleep. Therefore, use a sleep mask and earmuffs.
#8. Put your gadgets away
Don’t watch movies on your phone, tablet, or laptop because the blue light from their screens wakes your brain.
#9. Food and drinks
Don’t overeat onboard. The food you eat should be light and healthy.
