As a follow on from our earlier article, 5 Pre-Travel Tips, we explore the top five in-travel tips as recommended by health professionals and frequent fliers alike.

1) Hydrate right
According to Ayurvedic principles, it is best to opt for decaffeinated warm drinks to aid digestion and minimise vata.

Sipping plain warm water is excellent for combating dehydration and detoxing your system, but herbal teas are also a great idea.

A high quality coconut water will help replenish electrolytes and salts lost if your journey was a long one!

2) Consider your meals
Plane food is notorious for being heavy and wind-inducing, so it can really pay to bring your own food on board, or eat before/after the flight (if it is a short one).

Some tasty and nutritious options include: nut butter and sliced veggie sticks, fresh or dried fruit, quinoa salads, or chia seed puddings.

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.
