Whenever I have to travel outstation, I would always find it difficult to sleep. Sometimes, I could only sleep for a couple of hours before waking up to look at the time. Even though the trip is for business purposes and no fun factors involved, I would still be unable to sleep properly. As a result, I would be having problems driving. I would be dozing off behind the steering and that is really bad. Any tips to share?

I sleep well if it is a driving trip; however, in an airplane it is different. I only sleep for a few hours because flying makes me nervous.

Same here, I always have trouble to sleep before travelling. I don't know if it's the best thing to do but my solution is to take a sleeping pill the night before. That's the only solution I use. Thank you for starting this discussion. We will see if somebody has a good tip to give us.

Thanks for the comments. However, I will not go for the sleeping pills though. I might not wake up for the whole day if I were to do that.

Its a matter of relaxing your mind the night before. try to put the trip off your mind. Give up any anxiety and worry about the trip. Get yourself to sleep.

I am the same way. I worried I may over sleep and miss the plane
