10 Little-Known Tricks for Perfect Sleep on a Flight

25200 ratings | 4084166 views
How to sleep easily on a plane? People who can easily fall asleep on a plane are among the lucky few because most of us aren’t able to doze off in a cramped space, sitting in such an uncomfortable position and surrounded by total strangers. What if we told you there are some simple tricks that can help you catch some Z’s on board? Who knew that flying on a Tuesday or keeping your seat belt fastened could actually make a difference? TIMESTAMPS Night is the best time for a flight 0:34 The best days to fly are Tuesdays and Wednesdays 1:27 The perfect seat is by the window 2:16 Tilt your seat back to the max 3:17 Clothes should be warm and comfortable 3:58 Fasten your seat belt over your clothes 4:43 Get yourself some sleeping accessories 5:25 Control the scents around you 6:05 Put your gadgets away 6:59 Food and drinks 7:34 SUMMARY - It’s great if you can pick a flight for the time you usually sleep at. Wake up 2-3 hours earlier on the day of your flight to help you fall asleep faster on board later on. - If you want fewer passengers and more space, pick the most unpopular days for booking flights: Tuesdays and Wednesdays, as a rule. You might even get up to 3 seats to yourself! - Always try to pick a window seat to rest your head on the wall and not be bothered by your neighbor wanting to get up to go to the bathroom. If you normally sleep on your left side, aim for seat A. If your right side is your preferred sleeping position, pick the window seat on the opposite side of the plane. - If you want good quality sleep in the cabin, adjust your seat as far back as it’ll go. Just make sure the person behind you doesn’t mind. - To have a sound nap onboard, you should wear loose clothes made of natural materials that don’t constrict your movements. If your airline doesn’t provide blankets, take a jacket and warm socks too. - A seat belt fastened over your clothes or blanket won’t make your sleep more comfortable, but it will prevent flight attendants from waking you up if the plane experiences turbulence. - Light and noise are the main culprits that keep you from getting needed shuteye. So this answer might be obvious: use a sleeping mask and earplugs! - You can control the scents in your immediate surrounding. Just sprinkle the head rest or your travel pillow with some lavender oil or any other essential oil you like. - Don’t watch movies on your phone, tablet, or laptop because the blue light of the screen wakes your brain up. Most sleep experts say you should put away all your electronics at least half an hour, or, better yet, an hour before you plan on dozing off. - If you want to be fast asleep, don’t overeat onboard. The food should be light and healthy, while the best drink option is tea (the herbal variety is perfect) or just plain water. Have your own tricks to share?

Ugh, please dont spray or sprinkle any oils or perfume. It is really annoying esp if your nose is already dried out from the dry air. Fresh air is best and wont give anyone a headache or sore throat..scents even make me dizzy and feverish if i have to sit in it for hours

The seats infront of the lavatories are actually pretty good if you want to recline your seat really far out. You dont have to think abt annoying the person behind you because theres no one behind you. Theres usually a big space

Okay guys just don’t sleep at night so when you get on the plane after no sleep you will instantly fall asleep and when your waiting for your planes don’t sit down and just walk around so it will make you tired

Hi Bright Side! Love your videos! I am compelled to wonder though, which one of your computer graphic artists got "creative" at :47? What a hoot!...the watch reads 4:20 PM! I love it!!! As a graphic artist myself, when I have the opportunity, I always set the clock for 4:20 also! Ha ha ha fellow blazer! Puff puff pass! 😎😁🤔🤤😝🤐🤫
Susan B Anderson (25 days ago)
Ya, spend 4:20 outside in the parking lot... then, when you need to nap, you'll sleep like a baby! 😴
Boii Villa (26 days ago)
Tilt your sit to the maximum??? That's a very bad idea...besides being rude to the person behind you...you have no consideration too....I have been a victim of that idea...what I did to that passenger will be a unforgettable lesson for him.. ..PLEASE DON'T FOLLOW THAT RECOMMENDATION.
Cecilia (26 days ago)
I know it's already been said, BUT please do not spray ANYTHINg on a plane. People like me who have asthma and allergies might have an asthma attack and its not fun.

Please! Do not spray any scent while you are on a plan. Too many of us are allergic to scents, which can cause real health issues.

I fall asleep as soon as the plane starts moving/rocking me to sleep... thank you... it is like seconds and we have arrived!! It is just too boring for me to stay awake, unless there is a good lookin' man beside me, I have fallen asleep on a shoulder or two that is very comfy... :)

Please don’t use lavender oil. I have a friend who goes into apoplectic shock when she smells lavender.

Wear a hoodie, putting the hood up gives you a sense of personal space
smitajky (1 month ago)
I use a headband which covers my eyes and my ears but not the top of my head. Made of polar plus and three layers thick. This cuts light and sound to a very large extent without causing overheating. Of course travelling for 12 hours starting from 1 am before I even START the flight is a good recipe for falling asleep. Just wait until you board the plane before collapsing from fatigue.

1 mg. of Xanax does the trick. (Or flying in business with a flat bed seat if you can afford)
Jiyoung Park (1 month ago)
Dont spray anything on the plane-be considerate of other people around you who might not like the scent
Darryn Waugh (1 month ago)
Trick your body into falling asleep? Not sure about the rest of you but my body can tell he difference between lying down and sitting up in a cramped seat. A lot people on planes look asleep but most of the arent. There eyes are shut but thats about it.
Cindy Collins (1 month ago)
You’ve got to be kidding me! Spraying your pillow or yourself with a scent of any kind can be a problem. I may think it smells great, but some around me may not, or worse yet, be allergic to some smells you may love! For example, the smell of vanilla makes me physically ill!
