Making “Up, Up & Away” More Comfortable

Over the years, I’ve come up with simple little ways to make the whole flying experience easier for me. I hope that sharing these tips will provide you and your guests a more relaxing and definitely more comfortable journey.

Your Personal Medicine and Spa Bag
Okay, you might call me a geek, but I believe that carrying your medications with you onboard the airplane is not such a bad idea. After all, who is going to provide you with a cough drop if your throat gets dry or an Advil for that headache? You packed that in your luggage you say? Well that’s not going to do you any good now is it? So what do I put in the medicine/spa bag? Glad you asked!

Here Are My Favorites:

Soothing Silence for the Sleepy
If you want to drown out screaming babies or simply enjoy some peaceful rest, I highly recommend these goodies:

Soothing Sounds for the Soul
More often then not, I get stressed prior to flying. After mentioning this to my doctor, she recommended that I listen to guided meditation or calming music. So I now carry my iPhone with the latest guided meditations from the Chopra Center. I also include books and music that I can listen to if I don’t feel like sleeping.

Mile High Haute Couture
What to wear on an airplane? Layers! I normally wear a pair of comfortable stretchy jeans, or slacks, a tee shirt, a boyfriend blazer or cardigan, and flats. Comfort is my main goal here!

Healthy High Altitude Snacking
Food, glorious food! I love having a little bag of goodies stashed under my seat. The easiest things to pack are sliced carrots, banana, celery, plain or chocolate covered raisins, plus a delicious peanut butter and jelly sandwich.
