What options do you have if your journey includes an overnight flight? These are ways to make that long flight slightly more comfortable.

Give relaxation applications a try

There are apps available which could help you relax on an uncomfortable flight.

These include apps like Sleep Machine and Pzizz which features different tracks of ambient and relaxing music.


These delicious oils are no longer reserved for old-wives tales. They have been scientifically tested and the results show that these scents can improve the overall mood and physical health of a person.

Include ASMR on your playlist

These are autonomous sensory meridian responses and they work by sending a tingling feeling throughout the body. The result is a sense of euphoria and relaxation.

Don’t forget the ergonomic pillow

If you purchase the full-body variety, you will be gifted with a pillow that attaches to the seat and offers full support for the neck and head.

Pick your seat carefully

This is not always an option but if possible, try to get a set that is not too close to the bathroom and opt instead for a set that is close to the emergency exits.
