Sleeping Easy Amongst The Clouds

Travelling on a plane, particularly when the flight is long, usually doesn’t bring about good quality sleep or rest.

Without a good rest, you feel tired. This will make your flight experience more challenging.

Alpha Airport Parking can help with a secure airport parking. While you can try and employ a comfortable position on the plane or take a calmative to help, there are some other tips that may help you get refreshed on the flight too.

To begin with, ensure you get a good sleep the night before you travel. This will ensure that you are not already out of sync. If you have a very early flight, try to get to bed earlier. Don’t stay up late drinking or watching TV; sleep induces sleep, so be rested before you are ready to fly.

What are you wearing?

Even if your flight is a short one, plane seats are well known for not being the most comfortable places to spend any length of time in. So when you get dressed, dress comfortably.

Don’t wear tight clothes and if it’s a long flight consider taking your pyjamas in a carry bag. Not only will your pyjamas be a comfortable sleep associated item, it will beat sleeping in a business suit or jeans.

Seating arrangements

If you are able to, try and choose a seat in front of where the engines are as this should be less noisy. Also try to be away from where the toilets are situated. This way you won’t get disturbed by other passengers making visits there, lights turning on, doors slamming and people lining up near your seat.

It’s also ideal to be on a window seat if you can. This way you avoid the person next to you needing to get by and you are also able to prop a pillow against the window for a more comfortable resting position. If possible, take your own travel pillow that you have previously selected so you know it will be comfortable.

Another important consideration is to eat only good food before a flight. You don’t want to be stuck in a small space and to have last night’s undercooked pizza repeat on you.
