Ad­vice on fly­ing like a pro.

drink­ing enough, you’re help­ing your body cope with the stress of travel, and you’ll get off the plane feel­ing fresh. ••• squeeze your feet I al­ways wear com­pres­sion socks on flights. These help with cir­cu­la­tion and keep your legs from feel­ing puffy and heavy. I also take one baby as­pirin ev­ery six hours on long flights. It keeps you from feel­ing achy. ••• trick your­self If you’re land­ing in an­other time zone, fool your body by set­ting your clocks to the lo­cal time where you’re go­ing. My flights usu­ally have me land­ing in the morn­ing, so I make sure I sleep a lot on the plane. That way when I land, it makes me think, It’s time to work now; it’s day­time. ••• don’t lie down for long I do a lit­tle work­out af­ter I’ve ar­rived to help my body feel awake. While I’m deal­ing with the time change, I like to work in an hour-long nap in the af­ter­noon. The im­por­tant thing about nap­ping is not over­do­ing it. Don’t take a nap and then fall back asleep. You’ll never ad­just to the new time zone, and you’ll miss all the fun of the new place you’ve just trav­eled to.
