Tips / Travel

Long flights are never a reason for celebration, but they can be made more tolerable with a comfy neck pillow, a few sleeping pills and the following must-have items to make a long journey feel like a breeze.

 

Noise-canceling headphones

The tiny ear plugs provided by some airlines just don’t cut it when there’s a crying baby, snoring passenger or neighbor’s loud music involved. Sometimes you need to block out all noise completely in order to get enough rest on a long flight. Bose and Sony created sets of headphones that allow you to listen to your own music, movies or white noise without any infiltration of surrounding sounds.

 

Portable charger

You’re only one hour into your trans-Atlantic flight when your iPod battery goes dead. Now what? With your own portable charger, you’ll be able to bring life back into your personal electronics to ensure the time on your multi-hour flight passes with ease. Most seats on such flights offer a USB port for each passenger, which is how these portable chargers connect.

 

Compression socks

With the gigantic change in altitude and hours upon hours of sitting in the same position, blood can pool in your lower extremities and increase your risk for blood clots. Prevent this potential occurrence with a pair of compression socks. For maximum comfort, opt for a wool pair. which will keep your feet warm and comfortable during your flight.

 

Lotion and lip balm

The drastic change in elevation also dries out your skin and lips. Treat your thirsty skin and lips with a moisturizing lotion, preferably with aloe, and a hydrating lip balm. Avoid alcohol and hydrate properly with water to ensure moisture retention.
