Get the following three products:
- Eye mask
- Neck pillow (I definitely recommend getting one that’s inflatable since it packs down smaller and you can adjust how firm you want it to be)
- Ear plugs
Travel has become so much more pleasant after I discovered this sensory-depriving trifecta. Before, I’d get intermittent spurts of sleep, waking up because my head jerked down or some baby started crying or my neighbor’s screen was too bright; now, I’m able to sleep for upwards of 5 hours continuously on flights.
Alternatively, you can try getting an Ostrich Pillow, but I don’t have any experience using one of those. They also seem slightly bulky/I think people would be a little freaked out when you slip it on.
If all else fails, I’ve also used Benadryl and Dramamine in the past to help me sleep, but I much prefer my above non-drug combo. What are your favorite tips for sleeping on planes?
