There is nothing more annoying to me than having to just sit... for any period of time.
Wouldn't it be amazing if planes came with a yoga studio!?!
Although it is only 5 hours, I always feel just a touch more unhealthy whenever I get off a plane... with that in mind I am taking steps this morning to ensure I feel as good as possible when I land this evening.
1- I am hydrating a lot... plan to take a BIG water bottle onto the plane!
2- No plane food. I have already decided on this... sometimes I think that the soggy sandwich will taste good (it never does), or I am really hungry and buckle under the pressure... This will not be happening today.
3- Healthy Breakfast: soaked oats with banana, chia, hemp seeds, a few nuts/raisins and rice milk.
5- Fitness before I go... I am definitely going for a run before I leave today, as this will mentally help me with the prolonged sitting.
6- Make sure that I get out of my seat, stand and stretch a few times.
7- Pack some vitamins for the plane... In my bag: C, D, B, a probiotic and Omega 3's. Necessary.
I think these 7 things, along with a couple of movies and maybe a nap, should keep me feeling great when I land. Bon voyage!
