Are u a frequent flier?

Many of us who are frequent fliers and travel for long periods, and feel uncomfortable it. Then we can do a few things to minimizw the discomfort. TRAVEL SICK:- Take off, turbulance and landing promote queasiness. Choose seats over the wings (they are more stable) and focus on a still object until the feeling passes. EXHAUSTED:- To minimize fatigue, omce on board, switch to your destinations time zone and try to sleep or rest according to that. UNCOMFORTABLE:- Move around regularly and do stretching exercises in your seat. The risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) although small, is higher for those with pre-existing conditions, so seek medical advice before travelling. HUNGRY:- Inactivity makes it harder to digest food, so avoid excessive snacking. Humidity levels in the cabin are low, so drink plenty of water-tea, coffee and alcohol will dehydrate you.

Oh I am very lucky when I fly somewhere as I do not get sick although I realize other people do get quite sick while flying. These are very good tips thank you, also this tip may help others when the plane is about to take off the runway then hold your breath as then this will not affect your hearing and your ears will pop normally also chewing gum can help, so that your ears do not get damaged.
