Travels: Long Flights, Part Two
Now you're on your long flight...how do you settle in? Do you have a routine?
Do you set your sleep schedule? If your flight covers multiple time zones, it might be a good idea to adjust your eating and sleeping schedules to match your destination.
Do you take a sleep aid? Check with your doctor first. If it is okay, you might want to give it a test run at home. No sense getting on the plane expecting to sleep and it does the opposite and keeps you wide awake. Or, what if it makes you so groggy you can't function for at least 24 hours after you wake up? You'll also know how soon before it starts to work.
Do you keep the same routines as you do at home? If you brush your teeth twice a day or seven times a day...do that on the plane. Keep the routine, whatever it is.
