Don’t miss these essential tips for sleeping on a long flight, compiled by Creative Ideas. Forget about jet-lag and get to your destination well rested. Plus, you won’t be bored wondering what to do for the next 8 hours.

It’s a good idea to pick a flight traveling roughly around the time you usually go to bed. Also, make sure you wake up a few hours earlier the night before the flight to fall asleep faster on the plane.

2.The best days are Tuesday and Wednesday

People usually travel on weekend and definitely for popular holidays. So, if you want a less crowded plane, chose unpopular days such as Tuesdays and Wednesdays.

3. The perfect seat is at the window

People usually choose a window seat for the incredible view, but it’s also a plus if you want to doze off on your flight. You won’t be bothered by your neighbor who wants to use the bathroom an incredible 4 times. Also, avoid seats near the compartment wall, if you don’t want to hear crying babies for the rest of your flight.

4. Tilt the back of your seat to the max

If the person behind you doesn’t mind, tilt the back of your seat as much as you can. You will get much better sleep than sleeping at a right angle, which is also bad for your posture and body.

5. Clothes should be warm and comfortable

This one is pretty simple and obvious. Make sure you are always comfortable by wearing loose clothes. Some airlines offer pajamas and blankets, but just in case, pack yourself some comfy clothes.

6. Fasten your seat belt over your clothes

There are special cushions that will help you rest your head and neck when sleeping on planes. Also, buy yourself a sleep mask and earmuffs to block the light and noise.

8. Put your gadgets away

For a good sleep, not just on planes but everywhere, turn off all your gadgets because the blue light from their screens wakes your brain. Reading a book has been found to be beneficial when it comes to falling asleep fast.

9. Food and drinks

It’s not so smart to drink coffee or alcohol when on board. The caffeine will probably keep you awake, and the latter might calm you down, but it ruins the quality of sleep. So, the best choices are herbal tea or water. Also, choose food that is light and healthy.
