Secrets from Lisa Niver How to Sleep on a Plane

 

Thank you to Reader’s Digest for asking me for my secrets about how to sleep on a plane!

My first secret: Don’t forget socks

socksFor most people, sleeping in socks can be super-uncomfortable and annoying, when they’re in the comfort of their own bed. But when you’re flying high? It’s kind of the opposite: if you’re covered in a blanket but your feet are wild and free, they’re also cold. That’s why travel journalist and blogger Lisa Niver says to pack warm socks. That way your toes won’t keep you up. If you’re prone to swelling, compression socks will keep that in check and also prevent blood clots, reports webmd.com.”

Another top tip: Do what usually makes you sleepy

Whatever sleep routine works for you on a day-to-day basis is what will help you in an unusual circumstance, too. For Niver, watching a movie is her go-to trick, as it cancels out the noise around her and makes her eyelids feel heavy. Think about what works normally and apply it to your travel experience.”
