Summers are here and so is the vacation time. Many a trip companies are offering cheap international travel package with air travel. But, not all of us are comfortable with a flight.

Traveling via plane is not for everyone. It is not about affordability, but I have seen people avoiding an air travel because of various other reasons. Long queues at the airport, the odors that we feel when we are on the plane; there are also some less pleasant aspects when traveling by plane. But, do you know there are few things that we can handle from our side; a few common airtravel mistakes, most of us make when we fly. Avoid these, if you want to enjoy the trip. Let’s read about these.

Do not moisturize enough

Many experts believe that hydration is very important; it is very important that you stay hydrated during the flight and after it. Flying by plane can dehydrate you very easily because the humidity in the cabin is much lower than usual.

In addition to feeling tired and dried skin, dehydration can make you more susceptible to some health problems. Make sure you drink enough water to compensate for flight conditions.

You rely on food from airport

From pastries to chocolate, bars, and juices, airports have a lot of unhealthy food choices that can wreak havoc on our bodies; making us feel worse during the flight.

When flying by plane, most people opt for carbohydrates non-perishable goods, such as biscuits, muffins, chips and other dry foods.

This diet can be an invitation to ill-health if you do not drink enough water. Try to eat vegetables, fruits, dairy products and lean protein, when you are ready for flight at the airport.

Your inconvenient and improper dress

That pair of skinny jeans is perfect for a night out, but perhaps it would be better to avoid when you fly the plane.

Not many of us know that the body can swell during the flight. And, by wearing skin-fit clothes, you are actually making the situation worse. Make sure you choose comfortable, airy and appropriate size clothes, which allows you optimum comfort.

Improper Sleeping Position

Although a nap seems to be the perfect way to spend your time in flight, yet, certain sleeping positions may bring the body to high levels of stress.

And when you are not using a travel pillow, you might wake up with neck pain and blood circulation problems. So, do watch your sleep position carefully.

You put too much pressure

No doubts, airports can be stressful. Lost luggage, delayed flights, and many other things, can give you a hard time and a good amount of anxiety.

According to health experts, traveling can be stressful and stress weakens the immune system, therefore, it is better to plan everything well in advance.

Keep all documents handy, eat the right food, drink as much water as you can, wear comfortable clothes, sleep properly, and above all, try to enjoy the ride.

SAY WHAT YOU NEED TO SAY.
