How To Avoid Travel Sickness

A few quick tips you need to take note.

Rest 

A good night’s sleep the night before a long flight is key to protecting your health. There is no guarantee that you’ll get any decent rest on the plane amid loud passengers, food delivery and in-flight announcements – so plan ahead.

Pack Snacks

Meals on planes can often be different to what you are used to. Pack your own snacks but be aware of any restrictions of what you can and cannot take on board. 

Drink Plenty of Water

It is easy to become dehydrated during a flight, so ensure you are drinking plenty of water to keep your fluid levels up. 

Clean Your Area 

Wipe down tray tables, arm rests and head rests if possible to ensure your area is clean.

Stretch and Walk Around

When on the flight, it is important to encourage blood flow and loosen up muscles to prevent stiffness, pressure wounds and aching muscles. It is also vital for avoiding circulatory conditions. Get up regularly and walk around the plane. You can also do minor exercises, such as circling your feet and stretches while sitting at your seat.

Chew Gum 

Cabin pressure rises significantly during take-off and landing which makes your ears pop. This sensation can be painful – chewing gum or even yawning relieves the pressure in your eustachian tube (middle ear) allowing air to flow freely and quickly.

Moisturise

With 50 per cent of air being recycled on board, and constant air conditioning, your lips and face can become dehydrated. Carry a flight approved moisturiser and lip balm and apply regularly.
