5 tips for great in-flight sleep

Getting truly restful sleep during a long flight is no easy task. A few lucky ones can snooze off even before takeoff but most of us find it hard to really relax and disconnect at least for a few hours. Failing to do so can leave you even more exhausted and increases the chances of feeling the negatives effects of the dreaded jet-lag.

Knowing how to get better in-flight sleep is an invaluable skill for any traveler and here are 5 tips to get better at it:

  1. Get a window seat

This is one of your best allies when it comes to in-fligh naps. Rest your head on the side of the plane and forget about everything else, it’s definetely easier than to try to sleep sitting in an upright position. So, when possible, try to choose your seat in advance through the airline website.

  1. Pack the right sleep gear

Make sure to pack in your carry on all the napping accessories that can help you isolate your senses: a good eye mask that blocks all light efficiently, earplugs or noise-canceling headphones, a travel pillow and any other thing that helps you relax, like herbal infusions or guided meditations.

  1. Wear comfortable clothes 

Some may disagree that there is just no point in wearing your best outfits for flying, but comfortable and warm clothes are perfect to put you in a sleepy mood. There are passengers that go as far as putting their home pajamas but maybe that’s a bit much. And based on flight attendants advice on plane etiquette, never take your shoes off!
