We all enjoy a well deserved holiday from time to time and for very good reason as well. The majority of us work hard for our money, so why shouldn’t we take a well earned break and recharge our batteries, metaphorically speaking of course. As far as where we choose to enjoy our holidays, that’s often one of the more tricky decisions we’re forced to make. Some of us prefer staying in the countryside, some prefer city breaks, some prefer the coast, and some prefer hot sunshine which usually means hopping on an aeroplane and jetting off to sunnier climes. If you ask anybody what the toughest part of travelling abroad is, they’ll tell you that it’s almost certainly the flying. If you have a relatively short flight I.E a couple of hours, that itself can be pretty tough, but if you choose to fly to the other side of the world, long flights can be boring, and potentially harmful to your health as well. Long, even short flights, have the potential of ruining a holiday before it’s even started, and to ensure that doesn’t happen to you, here are 4 simple ways of making air travel more enjoyable.
Don’t leave packing until the last minute
One of the worst things you can do before a holiday is to leave your packing until the last minute. By doing this, you run the risk of forgetting important items, you can potentially cause your suitcase to become too heavy which can then lead to problems at the airport, and you’re stress yourself out and find yourself already in a bad mood before you even set foot on the plane. Instead, take the time to organize your suitcase neatly and efficiently so that you know you’ve got everything you need, and you know where all of your important documents are as well.
Read a book
Once you make it onto the plane, you’re probably in for a good few hours of sitting around and doing very little. To help pass the time and to help you relax and unwind a little, why not read a good book? If there is quite a lot of noise on the plane, you could even listen to an audio book using your tablet, smart phone, or various other electrical devices.
Try and win yourself some money
Ok, unless you’re very wealthy and are on a luxury private jet, your plane probably won’t have a casino on it, but that doesn’t mean you can’t play some games and potentially win some money in the process. With various gambling websites such as netbet, world of casino games you can simply use your phone or tablet to play various games such as roulette and blackjack, and hopefully win a little extra spending money before you even arrive. Only use electrical items when allowed and gamble safely.
Stay well hydrated
The air in your air cabin won’t be humidified, which can leave your skin and lips feeling dry, and you feeling thirsty and dehydrated, which can lead to headaches and a lack of energy etc. By drinking plenty of cool water, you hydrate yourself and you will feel so much better you never thought it possible. Oh and by the way, coffee, tea, and alcohol don’t count because they’re all diuretics, which means they make you even more dehydrated than before.
