Everybody loves travelling but nobody loves the inevitable exhaustion that sets in after flights. A long flight can stress out your body and fatigue you mentally, leaving you tired for days after. But if you want to feel refreshed instead of stressed sooner rather than later, follow our tips below.
Forget Everything And Sleep
Sleep – the ultimate solution for all (or most) problems. Having jet lag after a long flight is common. Depending on what time you leave and land, do the math and get a head start on adjusting your body to whichever country’s time zone you’re flying to. This way you can sleep through your flight and wake up super fresh. If you’ve got to power through, then force yourself to stay awake so you can land and then finally crash.
Visit A Spa
Sitting uncomfortably in an aircraft for hours can give you a severe backache. After you get off the plane, book an appointment at a spa right away. A massage can relieve you from all the stress your body goes through on an aircraft and ensures the ultimate relaxation.
Take A Refreshing Hot Bath
Nothing makes you feel better than a hot bath. Before sleeping, indulge in a refreshing hot shower to relax your muscles, relieve your aches, and unwind your mind.
No matter how long you have travelled for, don’t compromise on your exercise routine. It isn’t worth it. It might sound impossible and unnecessary, but trust us, you will feel rejuvenated after an hour of working out. If you’re not up for a tiresome routine, opt for something like yoga.
Hydrate Your Body
Long flights are extremely dehydrating. After you arrive it’s important to hydrate your body with plenty of water. Additionally, you should slather your skin with your favourite moisturiser.
Have A Healthy Meal
Having a healthy meal after a long tiring trip can definitely refresh your mind and make you feel much more energised. Whether it’s a home cooked meal or a fish fillet from room service, treat yourself to a satisfying meal!
