How To Feel Comfortable On A Flight

As we all start to make plans for travel as a gift to ourselves as restrictions ease, we’re thinking about flights again. Flying in economy isn’t alway ideal, especially on smaller planes where legroom is tight. However, just because you’re trapped in your seat, it doesn’t mean that you have to be uncomfortable. Try some of these simple tips to help you feel more comfortable when you fly.

Dress Strategically

Layers are the key to flying comfortably. Planes can move quickly between being too hot and too cold, so wear clothing that you can easily take off and put on. Soft, breathable items like sweatshirts and cotton tops will keep you comfortable. Blanket scarves can be used to keep you warm too. Get your hair out of your face with a hair tie bracelet. Stay away from tight-fitting clothes, or anything with scratchy tags. 


Wear The Right Shoes

Don’t wear heels or chunky shoes for a flight. You should wear shoes that are comfortable, but that you can also take on and off quickly so you can get through security withput any delays. Once you’re settled in your seat, take your shoes off. Your feet can swell during flights, so wear comfortable socks or change into slippers to allow your feet some room to breathe. 


Bring Earplugs

Block out the noise from around the cabin with some good quality earplugs. With the noise around you deadened, it will be easier to nap during the flight. 


Pack A Light Snack
A small, healthy snack will be a good energy lift when you fly. Good ideas for in-flight snacks include things like baby carrots, trail mix, fruit, or anything else that can be kept in a plastic baggy. Don’t eat greasy foods that will make you feel lethargic. Avoid upsetting your neighbors, and leave the smelly foods to eat at home. 

Check-In Early

Tick one stressful thing off your list and get checked-in early. If you check-in online before you go to the airport, you can save time in long lines, and may also be able to choose your seat. 


Choose The Right Seat

Everyone has their own preference on where they like to sit on a plane. Taller passengers will be comfortable in an aisle seat, as it’s easier to spread out. If you want to nap on the flight, choose a window seat, so you won’t be disrupted by other passengers climbing over you. All passengers will be more comfortable in a seat closer to the front of the plane. The back is often noisier due to the engine and might smell like the bathroom. 


Hydrate

Drink water, not coffee or soda. Caffeine and sugar can crash your energy, making you feel more tired and dehydrated than you did before. The air inside the cabin is dry, with humidity levels of around 10 to 20 percent, compared to the usual 30 to 65 percent. This will dry out your eyes and skin, making you feel uncomfortable. Ask the flight attendant for more water if you need it.

Why You Should Give Yourself A Gift

If you’ve ever seen something you’ve fallen in love with and not bought it for yourself, the reason could be that you just don’t feel right giving yourself something. This feeling makes sense; it’s fine to buy practical items for ourselves, but something for no reason is much harder to justify. 

However, you’ll be pleased to hear that there are many reasons why it’s actually beneficial to give yourself a gift from time to time. Read on to find out what some of these reasons are.

You’ll Learn To Give Better Gifts 

Being a good gift-giver is a wonderful attribute and something that will not only please the people receiving your well-chosen gifts but also that will make you happy every time you give one. As strange as it might sound, the more often you buy yourself something, the better you’ll get at choosing gifts for other people. 

This is because you start to understand more about what people want and what they like. You’ll know what it is you’re looking for in a gift, and you’ll understand what goes into finding the ideal present, including the extra costs like the cost of shipping a motorcycle or how important it is to start searching early if you want something unique. 

In other words, if you take the same care and attention and put the same effort and time into finding a gift for someone else that you do for yourself, you’ll become an expert gift-giver.  

 Stress Relief 

Treating yourself to something you want rather than something you need is a great way to relieve stress as long as, of course, you don’t overspend, as your subsequent money problems will only make your anxiety worse. 

 When you find something you love and then buy it for no other reason than you want to, you will find you feel amazing because your brain produces more serotonin – the happy hormone. This hormone reduces the amount of cortisol in the body (also known as the stress hormone), so it’s no wonder you’ll feel good. 

 Being happy is so important in life, and if you can make yourself happy with a special gift for no real reason, or to reward yourself for something, then do it. When you are happy, you will have a much more positive outlook on life, and that means you’ll spot more opportunities to succeed. 

 A Confidence Boost 

When you buy yourself something, you might receive a confidence boost from it. This may depend on what the gift is, but gaining more confidence is a good thing, so if it comes from buying new clothes or accessories that make you look and feel great, there’s certainly nothing wrong with that. 

In fact, you are usually going to be the best person to buy yourself clothes. You know what it is you like, you know what suits you, and you know what makes you feel great – even those who know you best won’t be able to answer those questions.
