Flying tips with Grandco Sandals
If you're anything like me, you may want to catch up on much-needed sleep during a flight, or even to pass the time on a long-haul transfer. Listen up, as these are the top tips on how to get that ideal kip on the plane! Prepare for lots of zzzzz..

Choose The Right Seat
If you have a choice, go for a window seat over an aisle seat. You won't be woken during forty winks to let your neighbor past on their toilet stop, plus being by the window is proven to be a few degrees cooler than other seats.

Fasten Your Seatbelts!
Once you snuggle up, make sure you fasten your seatbelt over your layers, so that you aren't woken by an air hostess when it's time to descend.

Gadgets Are A No-No
Choose reading a book over scrolling through your phone - you will get more sleepy if you stay away from your gadgets as they emit a special blue light that can keep you awake.

Get Comfy
Tilt your chair back, put your earplugs in, and use a neck support to help you drift off in comfort (if you don't have one of these, a rolled-up jumper or scarf will do the trick!). Kick off your Grandco Sandals put a pair of socks on - no one wants cold feet!

Stick To Light Snacks
Avoid having a heavy meal during or just before your flight. Have a light meal or healthy snack instead, as an overly full stomach can mean your quality of sleep decreases.

Steer Clear Of Alcohol
You may feel like a glass of bubbly might calm you during your flight, but it can cause you to have interrupted sleep. Drink plenty of water to stay hydrated!

Say No To Caffeine
Snuggling down with a hot cup of coffee may seem lovely, but it will probably keep you awake. To get a perfect sleep on the plane, try having a cup of herbal tea instead, which is much more likely to calm you and settle you down. Also don't consume any energy drinks a few hours before your flight either, if you're planning on having a great sleep.
