11 Amazing Ways For Keeping Fit While On A Flight

If you follow some safety steps before, during, and after you fly, you can make your trip much more pleasant and avoid many of the flying related problems.

It is a well-known fact that being seated for long periods of time can have an adverse impact on your health. In particular, long-distance aircraft flights can lead to chronic tiredness, otherwise known as 'jet lag,' fatigue, dehydration, and even Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), a disorder characterized by lack of involvement in the formation of blood clots.

These and other health issues in-flight can be avoided by following a few simple routines and exercises .. Just follow the airplane workout below to make sure you enjoy your ride and get invigorated rather than tired, to your destination.

Before departure

Just before you actually board your flight, there are lots of things you can do that will make your flight more pleasurable and then reduce the chances of problems.

  1. Nutrition: Avoid large, heavy meals in your seat which will leave you feeling bloated and uncomfortable. Instead, eat a small, low-fat meal that includes protein and complex carbohydrates-such as tuna and pasta-that will give you sustained energy during your entire trip.
  2. Hydration: Flying can dehydrate you significantly so it is important to be well hydrated before checking in. Stop caffeine and caffeinated beverages like tea, coffee, and cola, instead of drinking natural fluids like water or fruit juice.
  3. Clothes: You'll want to be comfortable whatever the duration of your flight-so wears soft, loose-fitting clothes, avoiding clothing like tight jeans. Several hours confined to the seat of an aircraft can leave you feeling stiff, so try choosing clothes to relax.
  4. Sleep: Hopefully you should try to get some rest before your flight, as you may not be able to sleep too long. When you're on a long-haul flight, pre-adjusting your body clock to the new time zone before you depart might be helpful, so you'll find it easy to fit into your usual regular routine when you arrive.
  5. Workout: Take a brisk walk before you board. Exercise can reinvigorate you, help you de-stress, and pump the blood through your body-which may reduce the risk of DVT.
  6. Stress: Plan your travel plans well in advance, allowing plenty of time to travel from home, check-in, and airport security so an unexpected delay does not throw your schedule and send your blood pressure sky high.

When on the plane

  1. Nutrition: Close to your pre-flight diet: Stick to light meals and snacks that are easily digestible, which will help you to avoid stomach issues and keep your energy levels up.
  2. Hydration: Alcohol is frequently available free of charge during flights, and although you may be tempted to start your trip with a celebratory drink, it will only dehydrate you and tire you. Hold a bottle of water close to hand, and periodically drink small quantities to avoid dehydration.
  3. Clothing: To help you relax, loosen your scarf, belt or tight waistband and use the layering concept of adding or removing layers to remain at a comfortable temperature, instead of wearing heavy, single pieces of clothing. This is also helpful to put on special elastic in-flight shoes because they will reduce the chance of DVT.
  4. Sleep: Whatever sleep you manage to get is unlikely to be of good quality, but it will help you travel faster on a long flight. Consider adjusting your watch when the plane departs and stick to the country's time zone you 're visiting-so that it's easier to adjust your body clock when you arrive.
  5. Exercise: It is the secret to being as healthy as possible. Whenever you can (ideally, around every 10 minutes) you can try to get up and walk around-but you can also do some exercise in your seat. Test out the following mobility routine for half an hour:
  • Alternate between clenching your feet and toes, and relaxing.
  • All the leg muscles are contracting and relaxing.
  • Through your legs do a 'pedaling' action.
  • Stretch your legs, your arms, and your neck.
  • Take some breaths deep.
  • Stretch the neck softly, then twist it.

Stress: When you start feeling overwhelmed, try to separate yourself from all the onboard events, such as meal times and drinks served and then immerse yourself in a good book, in-flight film, or a collection of your favorite songs.

Back at the firma terra

Your workout on the airplane will not stop until you land. Now is the time to reactivate your body completely, so you can make the most of your stay. A light-arrival exercise will energize you to compliment you're 'before' and 'after' routines and help you overcome any feelings of exhaustion or jet lag. Only follow the Energiser below after the flight and you'll be ready for something!
  1. Up and go!- You will still be confined for a long time during the flight, despite your in-flight mobility exercises-so, as soon as possible, step out into the airport terminal and get the blood flowing with a brisk walk.
  2. Take a drink- It 's very important to keep your hydration going and to help you prevent headaches and mental exhaustion. Keep with you a bottle of tea, and drink regularly.
  3. Stretch yourself- Cooping up will leave you rigid and immobile in cramped conditions. Following your brisk stroll, spend 10 minutes working out the main muscle groups to help you get your body back to normal. Exercises with flexibility can make you feel loose, supple and light on your feet.
  4. Don't exaggerate!- Whether on a holiday or on a business trip, throwing yourself into events, meetings, or just exploring right after flying can be easy. You may be more tired than you realize at first, so try to keep pace and avoid cramming a week's work into the first day after you arrive.
  5. Attack to the snack!- Meals are easily missed when making travel plans and getting excited about your new place. Likewise, a foreign nation can have different eating practices and cuisine that may not suit your time of arrival. Pack a range of snacks to keep you going before you can eat a meal, to make sure your fuel tank doesn't run low. While you find your feet, healthy cereal bars travel better than fruit, and even boiled sweets can bear you up.

Just landed, just ...

Air travel can be part of your everyday life and so long as you take reasonable steps, it can also be a fun experience. There is always a risk that issues such as tension, jet lag, exhaustion, and dehydration will occur, but by performing the above-mentioned airplane workout, you give yourself the best chance to arrive refreshed, comfortable and raring to go!
