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.
