3) Rest and relax Some people find falling asleep on planes easier than at home. Others, not so much. Wherever you lie on the spectrum (pun intended!), recognise travel as an opportunity for rest and relaxation.
For you, that may mean an uninterrupted 6 hour sleep, for others, it may be a silent space to listen to music with their eyes closed.
Whatever this is for you, savour the wonderful and rare moment - away from emails, calls, texts and social media - this is!

4) Keep moving that body When you are on board, aim to take a regular stroll up and down the aisles, or do short exercises often in your seat.
Simply treading your feet up and down (from the heels and then from the toes) or rolling your shoulders forwards and back, are easy examples of this.

5) Suss out your seat This one is a great one for those long-haul flights where you are bound to your seat for hours on end.
Work out where in the seating configuration suits you best. For some, having the window seat means a free headrest to sleep on, for others, an aisle seat offers the ability to get up and down as you please.
There are also websites that review seats for each flight, so it may be worth having a look before putting your requests forward.
