What To Do On A Long-Haul Flight
I sincerely love the whole process of travel, especially the flights. I find it painfully easy to get work done and to catch up on some much-needed rest while in the air. For others, maybe even yourself, flying is a big inconvenience and a time-consuming activity that you'd rather not take part in. Here are my go-to activities when the flight is just unbearably uninteresting.
1. Listen to a Podcast
Podcasts are my new favorite thing, not only are the subjects limitless, but it's a great way to take the pressure off your eyes from watching too many in-flight films. I prefer podcasts over books because it gives you the ability to multitasks, as I usually do, and, you save some extra space in your carry-on from not having to lug around multiple books or magazines. I download all my podcasts off Apple however if you're an Android user Spotify and Soundcloud allow you to do the same.
2. Detox and Moisturize
Some people may find this odd, especially my in-flight neighbor, but I usually take travel time as the perfect time to apply a detoxifying and moisturizing mask. I've been known to walk around the cabin looking like Green Monster sporting a cucumber moisturizing mask. I would recommend using masks if you're prone to breakouts like myself. The masks from Oh!K are conveniently packed into individual packets for in-flight use.
3. Make a Friend
Some of the best conversations start with complete strangers on flights. It amazes me the stories and reasons for people's travels. The being said, be careful as you may end up talking to someone who doesn't want to end the conversation, even know it's clear you'd like to have some peace and quiet.
I'm sure everyone has their own in-flight practices and routines. I'd love to hear about the things you do while on a long-haul flight.
