Whether it is your first time of flying or not, you are always anxious whenever you fly to the point that you are almost deciding not to fly again. Not to worry, we share some relaxing, calming and refreshing activities to engage in while flying to minimise or deal with anxiety.
Watch your favourite series
You can start watching your preferred or favourite series and you wouldn’t be able to stop at one. This is why you should not forget to pre-load your smartphone with the series. Interestingly, some flights also offer in-flight wifi, you can take advantage of this to download the movies.
Take a stroll
Every time you get restless, just take a stroll down the aisle to give your legs some movement. It gives you the perfect opportunity to really have a look at the massive aeroplane and would also distract you from sitting in place for the next few hours.
Strike a conversation with your flight mate
If you’re travelling with friends, it’s the perfect opportunity to have some deep and meaningful conversations with them. Also, the long flight journey gives you ample of time to plan out your everyday itinerary together. If you’re travelling alone, endeavour to engage in some small talk with the person next to you. It will not only give you an insight into the place you’re travelling to but will also keep you distracted during the flight.
If you have a day flight you are sure to come across some really beautiful sights of clouds and if you have the chance to sit near the window, you can simply while away your time by taking pictures.
If you enjoy reading, you can pack a few interesting reads in your backpack for the flight. A book is one of the perfect ways to drown your worries and relax during the flight.
Eat and sleep
Sleeping on a flight can be difficult thanks to the cramped up spaces. Only a lucky few manage this difficult task. In between, you can eat. Just make sure you are eating healthy.
